White: McGregor Would Pay Steep Penalty for Fouling Mayweather

A 22-year-old man was allegedly attempting to leave Australia for Syria

"I think it's a bit unfair because boxing and MMA are two different sports and Conor McGregor, if I'm being blatantly honest, if he lands a glove on Mayweather he'll be doing very well", said the Northern Irishman.

The Straight Blast Gym head-coach tweeted "10 weeks #McGregorVsMayweather" alongside an image of himself and The Notorious One.

One of the main questions around Conor McGregor's mega boxing fight with Floyd Mayweather is whether, after collecting what will for sure be a hefty paycheck, the UFC champ will ever return to the octagon.

UFC boss Dana White has since told TMZ the fight will be a 12-round boxing match at the T-Mobile Arena, with both men weighing in at 154 pounds (69.9 kilograms). "He will go after Floyd Mayweather and he will try to knock him out".

Whether it's instinctual or intentional, if Conor McGregor attempts to do anything other than punch Floyd Mayweather Jr.in their boxing match August 26, he'll pay a steep price. "I am also anxious for this event to be over so the UFC lightweight champion can face the top contenders in MMA's most talented division". He's gotta get his ass up and be prepared for Conor McGregor.

FOX Sports UFC analyst Rashad Evans: "I think this fight is incredible. I expect Floyd to win it 100 per cent". "I think I'd surprise a lot of people, I think it'd be an fantastic fight ... let's do it! Clearly Floyd is the better boxer, but what no one is taking into account is just how good Conor is at the mental game". "I think when you have the confidence and want to get into something, you have to talk your way to get into it".

"The reason Conor McGregor's as big as he is is he'll fight anybody, anywhere, any time".

Not every UFC fan will pony up to see him challenge boxing's biggest mouth, but plenty will. "Anywhere and everywhere I go, it's all that people are talking about".

Mayweather announced the fight on his Instagram account with a graphic saying "IT'S OFFICIAL!" showing pictures of both fighters and listing Las Vegas as the location while McGregor sent out an earlier tweet stating "THE FIGHT IS ON".
