How Much Will Conor McGregor And Floyd Mayweather Make For Their Fight?

How Much Will Conor McGregor And Floyd Mayweather Make For Their Fight?

Mayweather was unflustered by McGregor or the jeers raining down on him from a beer and testosterone fuelled crowd of mostly UFC fans.

Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor traded verbal jabs on Tuesday, August 22, as the circus-like countdown to their money-spinning superfight cranked into overdrive on the Las Vegas Strip.

3,360 - The number of diamonds included on "The Money Belt", which will be awarded to the fight's victor.

However, this is no ordinary fight of two men in a squared ring. I will be a lot bigger (than this), and a lot bigger than him.

"It's not going to be a great fight", said Trudeau with a shrug, as he trailed off.

What was most telling about McGregor's support then was the fact that 2015's UFC Fight Night Boston took place on the same night as the 2014 AFC Championship Game between the New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts - you know, the one that started Deflategate.

McGregor, who was on social welfare from the Irish government as recently as four years ago, is the blue collar populist champion but the bulk of the money being wagered is all in Mayweather's corner. "Las Vegas is Ireland now".

So sure is Irish bookmaker Paddy Power of the outcome of Saturday's fight that they have already paid out on a Mayweather victory. "He will not be able to take the ferociousness that I come with".

They might be the only advantages the mixed martial arts champion will have in Saturday's much anticipated clash against the undefeated Mayweather, who tipped the scales at 149.5 pounds, well under McGregor's 153.

Mayweather, who retired unbeaten in 2015 with a flawless 49-0 record, is widely expected to inflict a one-sided defeat on McGregor, a two-time world champion in MMA's Ultimate Fighting Championship who has never boxed professionally.

"Of course I've got Floyd Mayweather", USC linebacker Bryson Allen-Williams said.

"We need to understand that boxing is a bigger sport than MMA, and this fight really doesn't feel that exciting", Waseem told The Express Tribune from Panama where he is training for his own bout in Columbia next month. "After 21 years I've been hit with everything and I'm still right here".
