Dana White explains size difference between Conor McGregor & Floyd Mayweather

It went from being impossible to unthinkable to unworkable to ultimately inevitable, and by now it has been talked about so much that it doesn't even seem so weird anymore.

Forrest Griffin, the retired UFC Hall of Famer, said targeting Mayweather has allowed McGregor to focus his training on one discipline, and life in the octagon surely can prepare a fighter for the strategic chess matches that take place in a boxing ring.

The T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas will host the fight on August 26th and barring any unforeseen circumstances this one will be one for the record books.

Thursday's move isn't the only one in OR granting rights to transgender people with regard to identification documents. The Canadian province of Ontario implemented the X option earlier this year.

While some were bored to death by the back and forth en route to this point, losing interest in the bout all together, and others feel it is a mockery to one sport or the other, there are literally millions foaming at the mouth to see these guys punch one another. But that was almost two years ago, and there's no telling what rust has accumulated since then.

The real fun will come before the fight, and what a spectacle it should be. The same reason is what convinced McGregor to step into an unfamiliar arena of combat that will nearly surely end in defeat. White said this week. "No". It might be some kind of weird disqualification when McGregor finds out Mayweather doesn't stick his chin out to be hit the way some UFC fighters do or really does try to kick Mayweather when he's down.

Perhaps it is still ridiculous.

"This is really an unprecedented event", said Stephen Espinoza, who heads Showtime Sports, which will handle the pay-per-view.

On the other side there's McGregor, a man whose brashness has taken him from fighting on the preliminaries of a UFC event, to becoming the first fighter to hold two titles in two divisions, to now being a part of the biggest fight in recent memory, all within four years. But, all of that will mean very little when he steps into the squared circle with Mayweather on August 26 in Las Vegas. "Conor is a terrific athlete and MMA fighter but this is a different sport". In his last fight, McGregor won the lightweight title from Alvarez in November 2015 in UFC's first Madison Square Garden card. Furthermore, Mayweather Jr. has been on the boxing whetstone since he was a kid giving him the upper hand.

Asked by TMZ if Conor had the knockout power to pull off an upset, van Heerden simply replied, "No". The greatest defensive fighter of his time against a guy who has never thrown a punch in a pro boxing match?

Boult should have got in on the act when Ross Taylor , injuring himself in the process, spilled Mushfiqur's hard edge to slip. Recalled bowlers Mosaddek (three for 13 in three overs) and Taskin Ahmed (two for 43 in eight) did the bulk of the damage.

Either way, Mayweather-McGregor is coming, whether you like it or not, and it will dominate most of the chatter across both boxing and MMA over the coming couple of months.
