After months of speculation, the super-fight between former boxing world champion Floyd Mayweather and current UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor is now official. The two will meet on August 26 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
"It's the biggest fight in combat sports and biggest payday ever. All sides are happy with the deal," UFC president Dana White said on UFC Tonight. "I think this breaks the record in US, the UK, Australia and Canada, too. Floyd vs. Pacquiao did four million and rising, because with a pay-per-view, the buys keep rolling in for years."
