Conor McGregor, as the premier UFC fighter, knows how to win fights with elbows, knees and kicks, but if he employs those tactics in his August 26 boxing match with Mayweather, the penalties would be severe. McGregor is being given a money line of +550 to win this contest.

The fans have faith in the MMA guy. Now the Vegas odds for the fight stands at -1100 Mayweather, +700 McGregor.

UFC boss Dana White said McGregor would go after Mayweather and try to "knock him out".

How do the Vegas odds-makers feel?

"People telling me Mayweather will have his hands full trying to land on McGregor - STOP IT!" he wrote. "That's why I think they should put out the $100 price tag again and let Conor's mouth do the talking". Forget at fighting - I've seen it happen with guys in business. And so will your mother. "However, it's a boxing match and as fantastic as Conor has been, I'm taking Mayweather".

She captioned the picture: "With the boss Floyd Mayweather last night when he took his team to the premier of 'ALL EYEZ ON ME"'. Speculation has the two fighters earning approximately $175 million combined for the bout.

All of the rumors, all of the hints, and all of the trash talk that has been circulating for months has finally come together to create one of the biggest fights in the #History Of Boxing.

The South African pugilist was upset with McGregor's website, The Mac Life, accusing them of craftily editing their sparring session to make the UFC star look better.

The rules for the fight haven't yet been set, and according to reports, the venue for the fight hasn't been set yet either.
