UFC Fighters, Media Sound Off On Conor McGregor

The news that shook the world yesterday was the official announcement of the Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather fight.

The Straight Blast Gym head-coach tweeted "10 weeks #McGregorVsMayweather" alongside an image of himself and The Notorious One.

Yahoo! Sports reports that full terms were not available for their report, but that the fight will happen in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand or T-Mobile Arena.

Meanwhile, Conor McGregor is the best that MMA has to offer and the first fighter in the history of the UFC who won held two championship belts at the same time. He has been the UFC Featherweight Champion (145 pounds) and UFC Lightweight Champion (155 pounds). Showtime will air the Pay-Per-View which promises to be phenomenal. Conor McGregor is 27 and he is a southpaw. I want to watch the fight to see Mayweather get bloodied, so the vengeful part of me can rejoice for not just the women Mayweather's hit, but the countless women who haven't had recourse after being abused.

The fight has stirred a mixed response amongst both casual and hardcore boxing fans and will continue to do so right up until fight night.
