He is front and center in their world tour shows which are pretty interesting.  Last one is coming up in London.

I know and I don't know why. What's he needed for? He should be promoting his upcoming events that have some good fights. Not only that, I remember reading the fight didn't get signed until WME took over negotiations from him.

That would be interesting if it took WME to step in.

Now, Dana has denied this but we all know not to trust Dana. Anyway, this was on June 8th and six days later, the fight was officially announced.

First I heard of this. Interesting.

A Deadspin article on this fight.  One thing I never thought of is how McGregor would go from making his planet load of cash to pennies the UFC offers.  I think, he might just call it quits after this fight (falsely so called).

And here's a boxing guy saying that Mayweather will win, because if there was any chance that he would lose, he would've never signed to the fight.

Interesting articles. I am still interested in the fight though since in combat sports a lucky punch can end the night. As unlikely as it is, it's possible and I would love to see that live. This fight is just interesting to me because I never seen anything like it.

Crazy world tour these two had in California, Toronto, New York, and London.

All for another Mercer vs Sylvia fight. Or Ali vs Inoki. Toney vs Couture. CM Punk vs Gall. This is going to suck.

Possibly, I think the odds are Mayweather will smoke him but there is always that small chance of a Buster Douglas/Mike Tyson fight.

Little Nog beating all the Pan-Am superheavyweights except the Cuban, is what proves more than anything McGregor's chance in this fight.

The reason is Little Nog proved the difference between amateur and pro (the Cubans amateurs are also pros).

As such, Mayweather-McGregor is actually pro vs pro, even if it is a crossover fight.

That's right. Both pro fighters. After this, I'd like to see Mayweather in the Octagon as he said he would do, however, unlikely that is.
