According to UFC president Dana White, the fight will be at 154 lbs, a division that is not new to both Mayweather and McGregor, who competed at that weight. Only Brock Lesnar's fight against Frank Mir in 2009 is sandwiched between those two. This is McGregor's first pro boxing bout and instincts are not easily abandoned. "It's just ridiculous to me", Lewis went on to say. He was named the greatest pound-for-pound fighter of the last 25 years by ESPN, and was BoxRec's number 1 fighter and greatest welterweight of all time.
With Roddy training and fine tuning McGregor's boxing skills, the fellow Irishman revealed as much as he could on how the 28-year-old will be able to knockout Mayweather.
Mayweather will look to extend his undefeated professional record to 50-0, while McGregor, the reigning UFC lightweight champion, will make his professional boxing debut.
Unless of course Mayweather loses, then everything becomes very, very bad. We need to see what Mayweather is gonna be coming with.
In fact, the only thing he's better at than promoting is actually fighting, so you know the undercard of the upcoming superfight between "Money" and Conor McGregor will have to live up to the hype the main event is creating.
Russian Federation cuts communications with USA in Syria, threatens to target coalition jets
In a statement, the defence ministry said that starting today it will track all jets and drones from the coalition in the area. The U.S. shot down the Syrian regime aircraft Sunday after repeated warnings to stop engaging U.S. -backed anti-ISIS fighters.
"I can't take it serious", Lewis said.
McGregor and Mayweather will face off in a 154-pound bout on August 26. More recently, the fighter's boxing coach, Owen Roddy, appeared on the latest "MMA Hour".
"I don't know what the outcome or the answer is when this thing's over, but what the hell, we're going to give it a shot and see what happens". MMA is his passion so I would think he'd go back to that but he has the option.

Attar added that McGregor could potentially work with another apparel brand such as Nike and that's what he would wear inside the ring to face Mayweather, although that wouldn't extend to his fights in the UFC. Could Conor do something to get in Floyd's head and upset him to the point where Floyd does something illegal and is disqualified?
