MCGREGOR SIGNS DEAL TO FIGHT MAYWEATHER – 18/05/2017
By Kevin Moran
After months of speculation and hype, it looks like Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather is actually going to happen. The UFC star announced he had officially signed his half of the deal last night.
The 28-year-old Irishman told his production company, The Mac Life: “It is an honour to sign this record breaking deal alongside my partners Zuffa LLC, The Ultimate Fighting Championship and Paradigm Sports Management,
“The first, and most important part of this historic contract has now officially been signed off on. Congratulations to all parties involved. We now await Al Haymon and his boxer’s signature in the coming days.”
Mayweather officially retired from boxing in 2015 having equaled Rock Marciano’s unbeaten record of 49-0 after beating Andre Berto in a unanimous decision.
UFC president, Dana White has become a key part of the negotiations and told TNT the final deal was very close.
“The McGregor side is done,” White told the American broadcaster. “I’m starting to work on the Mayweather side now.
“I’m not saying the fight will happen, but I’ve got one side done, now it’s time to work on the other. If we can come to a deal with Haymon and Mayweather, the fight’s gonna happen.”
