I don’t like to be too dramatic about things that already get a lot of media attention (except Game of Thrones) but MMA/Boxing fans all around the world have been cock teased long enough with what is being dubbed, “the fight of the century.”
At least GOT fans KNEW winter was coming, maybe a bit later than we all liked, but a guarantee. For the past 6-7 months “the fight of the century” has been dangled in front of us accompanied by a ton of ‘maybe’ ‘maybe not’’s. Of course I am referring to the match up boxing fight between MMA lightweight champion Conor McGregor and undefeated boxing legend, Floyd Mayweather.
Well, fighting world fans, it seems our days of drooling over this fight are over because the contracts have been finalized and the fight is officially on. Both parties have signed the contracts and it’s happening a lot sooner than you’d think.
