White: McGregor Would Pay Steep Penalty for Fouling Mayweather

"I talked to him this morning, he wants to fight Floyd Mayweather on August 26, and he wants to defend his title this year too", White said on Wednesday.

And White told Sky Sports News HQ that he thinks the eagerly-awaited clash will be "the biggest in the history of fighting".

After months of speculation, unbeaten icon Mayweather has agreed to come out of retirement to take on UFC star McGregor in his boxing debut at the T-Mobile in Las Vegas on 26 August. "I'm not saying that Conor would win this boxing match but it sure makes it interesting".

"Oh yeah, that will not happen", White said in a media conference call via CBS Sports.

"The guy has done wonderful things".

While people continue to question the legitimacy of an MMA fighter trying his hand at the Sweet Science against the best boxer of this generation, there aren't any questions about how much financial sense this superfight makes. "He's a tough guy, he's the best in the world".

"There is a different feel from the Pacquiao fight, Ellerbe said".

"The kid has unbelievable charisma and is a great fighter". I hope he kicks him in the last round because it would be nice to see Mayweather's head split open. Not only will it break the records here in the United States but we think it is going to break the records globally. "When you talk about a guy like Floyd Mayweather, the lawsuit if that ever happened..." Floyd Mayweather is a flawless champion with a record of 49-0.

"The reason McGregor is as big as he is, is because he will fight anybody, anywhere, anytime". Floyd is 40. Floyd always had problems with southpaws, Conor is a southpaw and Conor hits hard.

For UFC star McGregor in particular, the earnings, which could top $50 million for him and nine figures for Mayweather, will be unlike anything he has sampled in mixed martial arts. However, "The Notorious" Conor McGregor has defied all odds to become the champion he is today.

"THE FIGHT IS ON", McGregor said in his own Instagram post, adding a picture of himself next to one of Mayweather's father, Floyd Sr. From Conor's standpoint, I like the fact that the fight is at 154 pounds, which is right in his wheelhouse.
