It would be borderline criminal for the UFC not to consider a fight in Ireland for a McGregor fight.
White also revealed that the Mayweather Vs McGregor event is already breaking record and is trending towards being the biggest pay-per-view in combat sports history.
McGregor will be in a boxing ring for the first time as a pro when he takes on Mayweather, who is coming out of retirement for a fight that will make him tens of millions of dollars.
Burt Clements and Dave Moretti, both of the U.S., are the other two scoring the fight at Las Vegas' T-Mobile Arena.
McGregor is set for less, but his earnings are set to be in nine figures if the fight brings in as much as predicted. If you look at most boxers who've crossed over to MMA, they get beaten on the ground. However, most people don't understand that this fight isn't just a freak show. All he has to do is touch you. So I don't mind putting my 49-0 on the line.
March 8, 2017 - While in London to promote a fight between his protege Gervonta Davis and Britain's Liam Walsh, Mayweather tells McGregor via ESPN: "Sign the paper".
If you fancy it, you can still get a ticket on StubHub, although the fact that the tickets range in price from $1,299.99 to $100,250 (approximately €1,105 - €85,350) might just put you off.
How many fights inside the octagon could generate enough money to afford the rising price of the Irishman? "He's going to slip your offensive head shots and counter back to the body and to the head", Cruz said.
Ultimately, Cruz feels like McGregor's ability to counter off of Mayweather's offense is his best path to victory.
The exemption will allow the bout to go ahead with smaller, 8oz gloves in lieu of the 10oz pair they would have otherwise needed to fight in.
"His best bet is countering".
However, he said, he would not be attending unless he was made a financial offer he could not refuse.
When it comes to this fight's promotion we've seen trash talking, racist undertones, sparring stories and glove controversy.
"We saw it with Eddie Alvarez and we saw it with Jose Aldo".
