It’s not just a show any longer.
According to MMA inside Ariel Helwani, the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor super fight may actually move from just an idea to reality and it appears sides are talking:
Helwani has broken some of MMA’s biggest stories, and this one could be an absolute stunner.
There’s almost no doubt it would be a boxing match, and while McGregor’s standup game in MMA is impeccable, he’s not the greatest pure boxer in the world and would get dominated by Mayweather:
McGregor previously worked out with boxers as rumors ran wild in May of last year:
While Dana White has insisted the bout won’t happen, McGregor could take the complicated steps to become a boxer without the UFC’s approval.
McGregor recently acquired a boxing license in California, but he’d likely need to do the same in Las Vegas, where Mayweather fights.
We’ll see if this dream fight actually materializes into anything.
