Conor McGregor: Fame, fashion and fighting

Conor McGregor, pictured during UFC 205 weigh-ins at Madison Square Garden on November 11, 2016 in New York City, will earn the biggest purse of his career against Floyd Mayweather. The fight happens on August 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

His last fight came in September of 2015 when he picked up a unanimous decision win over Andre Berto. It will be fought at 154 pounds with the boxers using 10-ounce boxing gloves.

"We have actually tapped into the audience that doesn't really follow either sport", said Stephen Espinoza, vice president of the fight's broadcaster Showtime Sports. McGregor is the biggest star in MMA, but neither he nor any UFC fighter has ever had close to a nine-figure payday.

Oddsmaker Nick Bogdanovich, who set the 11-1 line at the William Hill chain of sports books, said the odds would be even more lopsided if it wasn't for the deluge of small bets expected to come in from UFC fans on their fighter. "If it happens both guys will make a lot of money, but Mayweather wins".

He is 11 years older than his opponent. McGregor will be lucky to land a significant punch on Mayweather, the greatest defensive boxer any of us have ever seen.

With heavy cash like that, can you blame Mayweather and McGregor for going so hard to make this a reality?

"As we've already seen this evening, Mayweather vs. McGregor has generated buzz that reaches far beyond that of the considerable boxing and MMA audience".

It's being speculated that both men will be paid a staggering $100 million each for the fight to be aired on pay-per-view TV. He is absolutely 100 per cent positive that he wins this fight and I stopped doubting Conor McGregor a long time ago.
