It is on: Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor will fight August 26

McGregor has very little to lose by agreeing to this fight, so it makes sense to assert that the UFC's brand wouldn't be damaged much, if at all, if its marquee star were to be knocked out.

And in another preview of what everyone should expect during their summer of promotion, McGregor's post included his photo opposite Floyd Mayweather Sr., the boxer's 64-year-old father, with a straight-faced caption: "THE FIGHT IS ON".

The ambitious McGregor is 11-plus years younger than Mayweather and has won UFC titles at featherweight (145) and lightweight (155), but he has never participated in a professional boxing match.

Mayweather will take on UFC king McGregor at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on August 26.

In the first quarter 2017, the overall tablet shipments were 36.2 million for each IDC with a year-over-year, 8.5% decline. Apple's brand new 10.5-inch iPad Pro and just updated 12.9-inch model are now available in the company's retail stores.

In what will arguably the most anticipated fights of all-time, the world's greatest MMA fighter will go up against the world's greatest, and until now retired, boxer in the ring.

UFC president Dana White said that the fight would be at the boxing junior middleweight weight limit of 154 pounds.

Mayweather v McGregor has been announced for 26 August in Las Vegas. "The impossible deal is now done".

After months of back-and-forth insults and rumours that the fight was on and off, it has now been made official with both fighters confirming it on social media. As a bonus, McGregor's caption read: "Call me CJ Watson!" in a biting reference to the former National Basketball Association guard who had a relationship with Josie Harris, the mother of Mayweather's children.

"I talked to Conor McGregor this morning".

"Conor McGregor is a guy who's done a lot of good things over here for the sport and this company and he wanted this and the fans wanted it too". It has also intrigued some in boxing, though most dismiss McGregor's chances under boxing rules against one of the greatest defensive fighters in history. Whenever Conor hits people, they fall.

"I stopped calling it 24/7 and called it the Floyd Mayweather show".

"He is absolutely 100 percent positive that he wins this fight", White said (h/t)
