Thus far, we’ve heard from everyone from Conor McGregor, Floyd Mayweather, Dana White, McGregor’s coach and McGregor’s training partner on the likelihood of an impending superfight between the MMA star and the boxing star. Yesterday, Ariel Helwani got McGregor’s manager on “The MMA Hour” to talk about it, so expect a statement from McGregor’s valet and the cashier at the grocery store where McGregor buys milk in the morning soon.
“Listen, I think there’s fan interest, and I think that’s brought us to a point where this may happen,” Attar said during an appearance on The MMA Hour. “But we’ll see. Nothing is set in stone. I think it’s one of those things that’s a work in progress, but it’s definitely trending in the right direction.”
“I think first and foremost it’s just the fan interest,” he said. “I think Floyd and Conor organically just going back and forth, that kind of picked up the fan interest. Credit to Dana White and the UFC for recognizing a huge opportunity and wanting to be involved. I think that’s really the…I would say evolution of this whole thing.
