The bout between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather has been hyped for months, and amidst all the rumors and trash talk, McGregor finally took a legitimate step towards making it happen.
The UFC lightweight champion has confirmed that he signed his half of the papers to box Mayweather. Yup, BOX Mayweather. Some speculated the match would be Mixed Martial Arts rules, but this new development puts that rumor to bed.
“It is an honour to sign this record breaking deal alongside my partners Zuffa LLC, The Ultimate Fighting Championship and Paradigm Sports Management,” he told The MAC Life.
