The UFC and superstar Conor McGregor have come to terms in regards to their side of the contract for McGregor to face Floyd Mayweather in a boxing superfight. Now it’s Mayweather’s turn to sign on the dotted line.
As per MMAFighting:
Conor McGregor’s boxing venture against Floyd Mayweather seems to be drawing closer to happening.
At least, that’s according to UFC president Dana White. That much was made clear on Wednesday night after the NBA on TNT telecast of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals between the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers.
Long-time UFC enthusiast Shaquille O’Neal asked White during the TNT post-game show if McGregor and Mayweather is happening, or if it’s a myth.
“McGregor’s side is done, I’m starting to work on the Mayweather side now,” White said, “I got one side done, now it’s time to work on the other. If we can come to a deal with [Al] Haymon and Mayweather, the fight’s going to happen.”
