Conor McGregor, as the premier UFC fighter, knows how to win fights with elbows, knees and kicks, but if he employs those tactics in his August 26 boxing match with Mayweather, the penalties would be severe. These two will meet on Saturday, August 26 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada in a 154-pound boxing match. Chris put out his own footage showing the opposite and now he's re-sharing that to the world following the announcement of Mayweather vs. McGregor. "I am excited", said Holm, the former women's bantamweight champion.
Ireland's McGregor, 28, who has won 21 out of his 24 MMA fights, has helped to turn the UFC from a cult phenomenon into a global sport. Forget at fighting - I've seen it happen with guys in business. It's certainly possible. After all, Mayweather is one of the greatest defensive fighters in boxing history, and he's about to face a man with no pro-boxing bouts under his belt. And I loved the way McGregor persuaded Mayweather for this to happen. When he hits you, you go. It is set to be U.K.'s biggest screening of the fight.
And 23-year-old Catterall is one of many boxing figures who believes the bout with McGregor - a double mixed martial arts champion with the UFC who has never boxed as an amateur or professional - is a mis-match. It's always going to be evolving.

Incredibly, the Daily Star recently claimed that McGregor wanted a $100 million purse to take on the undefeated Mayweather. He said that even if that happens, it wouldn't damage the UFC or McGregor's credibility. "A guy with that kind of power, he can nick you and you can be buzzed..." Still, the fans want this match thanks to the promotional ability of McGregor, who has been calling Mayweather out for years.
"What we know is that Conor McGregor is a huge hitter and he's been knocking people out for the last few years", Carr said. It became this thing were it was so impossible to get tickets, that after you already paid for them, that people started canceling their rooms and all kind of things.
