UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor will look to once again silence his doubters tonight in Las Vegas when he squares off against undefeated boxing legend Floyd Mayweather at T-Mobile Arena.
The bout will serve as Conor McGregor’s professional boxing debut, which has many fans and analysts believing that “Mystic Mac” is in over his head.
Yesterday, the ceremonial weigh ins for Mayweather and McGregor went down, with Conor weighing in at 153 pounds and Floyd coming in at a lean 149.5 pounds.
The staredown that followed was nothing short of intense, as McGregor got right in the face of Mayweather delivering a barrage of verbal insults.

McGregor’s weigh in attire caught the eyes of many individuals, including former Strikeforce welterweight champion Nick Diaz.
“I see no reason to face off in your drawers Especially when you’re opponent had time to get dressed after he was the second one out” – Nick Diaz
Both fighters, Mayweather and McGregor, will be receiving massive guaranteed pay days from tomorrow’s event. “Mystic Mac” is guaranteed $100 million, while “Money” will rake in at least $300 million.
