Floyd Mayweather gives update on potential Conor McGregor fight

Alyssa BaileyMar 03, 2017

McGregor will meet Nate Diaz in a welterweight rematch on August 20, 2016, at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

UFC lightweight Conor McGregor has underlined his star power after being photographed with renowned fight fan and Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney. So I can't imagine him not fighting the victor.

While Diaz might be the top choice for Kavanagh, he admits that it's hard to imagine a scenario where McGregor returns and doesn't end up facing the victor of the fight between Nurmagomedov and Ferguson at UFC 209.

ADPH investigating 3 student cases of mumps at the University of Alabama
The Medicine Hat Tigers of the Western Hockey League have confirmed that about a half-dozen players and a coach have the mumps. In the United States, 2016 saw the largest number of mumps cases in the past 10 years.

Nurmagomedov is hoping to show off for the world at Saturday's UFC 209 what he can do when put in the cage against Tony Ferguson. People know because it was good for business and it was a money fight, this is why we get this fight.

"I do not think about him". He catch [Eddie Alvarez] a couple times, he go down, Eddie Alvarez.

Chasing what would be the biggest payday in his career with a fight against Mayweather, McGregor will have options when he returns, but it will be up to the UFC to decide which one to give him.

"I can't really say if the McGregor is going to happen", he told BBC Sport.

Boxing may not be McGregor's first love, but Kavanagh seems to like his chances in a matchup with Mayweather and he applauds the creative matchmaking that might pit the biggest superstar in mixed martial arts history against arguably one of the greatest boxers of all time.

Nurmagomedov fights this weekend for the interim iteration of McGregor's 155lbs crown, which he claimed by knocking out Alvarez in comprehensive fashion last November, and he's not buying the ease with which "The Notorious" got past the belt's previous incumbent. "I think Khabib will be the victor, so Khabib will be the match up out of that".

YouTube's streaming TV service is called YouTube TV, costs $35 per month
That's why it will launch in "limited USA markets, where it has full coverage", according to Recode's Peter Kafka . Obviously the library of TV networks will make or break YouTube TV , but Google is off to a pretty good start.

As with most high profile UFC cards, the promotion releases videos for each day building up to the fight and in the first of the week, we see Tony Ferguson in an ice bath "testing his mental strength". I don't like this guy too much, to be honest, but we have to give him respect for his game.
