McGregor 100 per cent positive that he will beat Mayweather - White

White predicts records will fall in super fight

Put them together in a ring, though, and it's an absolute mismatch. Promoters are hoping the trash-talking McGregor can sell tickets.

The Mayweather vs. Pacquiao super fight racked up a record number of 4.4 million PPV (pay-per-view) buys in the US. "He is 100% positive that he wins this fight, and I stopped doubting him a long time ago". While Mayweather Promotions is officially presenting the card, the UFC is also going to make money on the event. Sports pundits, experts, casual and hardcore fans are all going to weigh in on every angle of this fight.

White on the UFC's involvement in the fight: "None". You may remember Chris as the guy who sparred with McGregor back in May 2016. "He will go after Floyd Mayweather and he will try to knock him out".

McGregor just started this yesterday. Leonard Ellerbe, chief executive of Mayweather Promotions, said the boxer's team made a decision to end his 23-month retirement because the clamor for the 154-pound showdown had been impossible to ignore. He was throwing punches before he could walk, and if he had elected to stay in retirement he'd still be considered one of the top 10 fighters ever. Age won't be a factor, either, and Mayweather has never let himself get out of shape.

Las Vegas certainly agrees with oddsmakers listing Mayweather as an 11-1 favorite.

The broadcast team for the Floyd Mayweather vs. Someone else will have to watch over the strip club for a few months while he focuses on the task at hand.

There's no need to sugarcoat this as it's a straight money grab, nothing more.

And so far flights from Dublin to Las Vegas at that time are going relatively cheap - with McGregor enthusiasts snapping up trips to Las Vegas for just €600. Because in boxing, even though how cautious you are, there will always be a time that you will lose.

"I don't think it damages the brand or Conor McGregor at all, I think it actually elevates Conor McGregor", he said. The UFC's McGregor comes in as a huge +400 underdog, which means an upset could net big gains.

Give McGregor credit for doing that, but give him even more credit for what turned out to be a masterful plan to make the fight happen.

"When two guys step into the ring - whether it's the octagon or whatever it is - anything is possible".

Sure, it's a freak show of sorts, bordering on something you see in WWE. "They asked for this fight".

Just understand that the fun nearly surely ends when the opening bell rings.

So enjoy the ride, because it should be a wild one.
