McGregor has a punchers chance but Mayweather will dominate imo. Huge payday for both. Interesting insights of McGregor. I think Botter nails it.

Win or Lose vs. Floyd, Conor McGregor Likely Will Never Return to the UFC

Report
Jeremy Botter

June 16, 2017


On Wednesday, the impossible dream, the flight of fancy, the ridiculous notion became reality: Floyd Mayweather, owner of all sporting pay-per-view records of note, will exit a two-year retirement for the August 26 boxing match against Conor McGregor, the brightest star mixed martial arts has ever seen.

McGregor is the highest-paid Ultimate Fighting Championship athlete ever, but the leap he is about to make is an extraordinary one. He says he'll go from his comparatively low estimated paydays to over $100 million in one night.

And then, according to UFC President Dana White, he'll come back to the UFC for a lightweight title defense in December, where he will presumably go back to making $3 million guaranteed for his fights. From $100 million to $3 million, for the same amount of work.

Sure he will.

Conor has size, good pop, and youth in his corner. Matters not. Champ goes 50-0.

Here's why...
