The super-fight that many thought would never come to fruition has a date and venue.
UFC lightweight champion and MMA’s biggest star Conor McGregor will take on arguably the greatest boxer of all time Floyd Mayweather Jr. at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Aug. 26. The fight will be a boxing match contested at 154 pounds. This bout is the culmination of a year of back-and-forth trash talk on social media between McGregor and Mayweather that ignited a wild fire of interest among fans in the sports world.
