Pierre on Conor McGregor: "He's the biggest"

Conor McGregor

Even UFC president Dana White, who once said he had a better chance of being Tom Brady's backup, now is on-board with the idea and optimistic the fight will happen. "If I had to guarantee [someone could get me that paycheck] it would have to be Conor McGregor". And while White has yet to confirm the UFC's own demands he admits that with talks still ongoing confirmation of the fight in some way off.

"I think it's progressing, but it's nowhere near being done", White said to TMZ Sports.

"However, let's say Mayweather doesn't want to do it, for whatever reason, then I could see us fighting in MMA by the end of the summer for the lightweight belt. We're not, we're not even close". I know Floyd will never fight Conor in a mixed martial arts fight, but Conor could fight Floyd in a boxing match.

Australia abolishes visa programme used largely by Indians
Marketing specialist was again the third-highest nomination occupation for primary 457 Visa holders over that period. He said that a new version of the visa programme will focus on recruiting only the "best and the brightest".

The first ever hint that McGregor and Mayweather could actually fight inside the boxing ring was in November of a year ago when the Irishman obtained his boxing license in California.

McGregor's status in global sport has been enhanced as much because of his ferocious knock-out record as his reputation in the media, where he taunts opponents with expletive-laden threats and insults. "I'd have to look out for his left hand and he's got some great kicks and he's got some power in his hands..." I think it's valid and I think it's normal. "I don't think he's going to win, I don't think he's going to win at all, but I think he wants to do it and he's going to make a lot of money out of it", he added. Why would I not try and produce a fight with (Michael) Bisping or Nick or Nate Diaz, Georges St-Pierre and Conor McGregor?

The next step for Irish fighting is going to be a fascinating one.

. "We have to go in and cuss and cuss out each other's moms but that's what brings in the money".
