Undefeated boxing legend Floyd “Money” Mayweather (49-0) will return to the squared circle this weekend against current UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor.

The McGregor vs Mayweather bout, which takes place August 26 in Las Vegas, could wind up being the biggest fight in combat sports history.

One of the most intriguing stories leading up to Saturday’s massive pay-per-view event has surrounded former two-weight boxing champ Paul Malignaggi, who was brought in by the McGregor camp as a sparring partner.

“The Magic Man” and “Mystic Mac” had a very public fall out, this after someone’s in McGregor’s camp leaked unflattering images of Paulie which were taken during his aforementioned sparring sessions with Conor.

Current UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor will take his talents to the squared circle tomorrow night in Las Vegas when he throws down with undefeated boxing legend Floyd Mayweather.

The Mayweather vs McGregor “super fight” could potentially end up being the biggest fight in combat sports history.

Saturday night’s pay-per-view event is expected to do huge numbers and as a result both Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor will earn massive guaranteed paydays.

ESPN’s Brett Okamoto recently revealed both Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather’s guaranteed fight purses on Twitter:

“Disclosed, guaranteed purse amounts for tomorrow: Floyd Mayweather $100 million, Conor McGregor $30 million. Both will ultimately make more.” – Brett Okamoto – August 25/17

Of course both Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor could potentially earn much more depending on the success of the pay-per-view event.

Conor McGregor was last seen in combat at November’s UFC 205 event in New York, where he earned a second-round knockout victory over Eddie Alvarez to become the UFC’s undisputed lightweight champion of the world.

Current UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor has made a fortune by destroying opponents with his brutal left hand.

“Mystic Mac” became the first UFC fighter in history to simultaneously hold two belts in different weight classes at November’s UFC 205 event in New York, this after he finished Eddie Alvarez via a sensational second-round knockout.

Alvarez is not the only opponent to get put away by McGregor’s nasty left hand. Fellow UFC standouts Jose Aldo, Chad Mendes, Dustin Poirier, Marcus Brimage and Dennis Siver have all fallen to the iron left hand of “The Notorious”.

McGregor will face his stiffest challenge to date next weekend when he makes his professional boxing debut opposite undefeated legend Floyd “Money” Mayweather.

If Conor is to defy the odds and emerge victorious against Mayweather on August 26 he will surely need to do so by utilizing his lightning-quick left hand.

In the following video courtesy of “Boxing Legends TV“, we see the 25 best punches ever landed by Conor McGregor during his time in combat sports.

Do you think Conor McGregor can pull off the massive upset next weekend and thus prevent Floyd Mayweather from retiring with a perfect 50-0 professional boxing record?

Former three weight division boxing world champion “Sugar” Shane Mosley doesn’t believe that current UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor has a snowballs chance in hell of defeating Floyd Mayweather on August 26 in Las Vegas.

Mosley believes that a better fight to make would be having “Mystic Mac” square off with Floyd’s father, Mayweather Sr, this way McGregor would have a 50/50 shot of winning.

Mosley was recently on the Colin Cowheard show where he went off on the Irish super star.

“I can’t even come up with a scenario (where McGregor beats Mayweather). The best fight that I think is Floyd Mayweather Sr. and McGregor. He’s 64-years old. Now that’s a fight. That’s a good fight where I don’t know who’s going to win. And I slightly, I slightly pick Floyd Mayweather Sr. I slightly pick him but I don’t know who’s going to win that fight.”

That is a pretty harsh statement considering Mayweather Sr. is now 64 years old and hasn’t competed professionally since 1990.

Conor McGregor will be making his professional boxing debut when he squares off with Floyd Mayweather next weekend in Sin City.

The Mayweather vs McGregor super fight is expected to do HUGE numbers and could wind up being the biggest prize fight in combat sports history.
