McGregor, the reigning UFC lightweight champion, has been pursuing a bout with 'Money' Mayweather for the last few months.
With an impressive 49-0 win record, the former welterweight champion will definitely be aiming to bow out in style with a victory against the MMA star. I'm telling you, there's something about that dude. I beat him and I became the A-side.
FloCombat reports that the fight could take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, as the 20,000-capacity arena has been reserved specifically for a Mayweather-versus-McGregor event on Saturday, June 10.
Watch Mayweather's full statement on McGregor below.
But why focus on that crap when we can instead regurgitate another "story" about Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather?
The battle over that top spot appears to be the stumbling block to making a fight with McGregor go from rumor to reality, but Mayweather says his track record is proven so it's the Irishman who needs to concede to take a lower portion of the proceeds for a potential pay-per-view. "I don't wanna hear any more excuses about the money".
McGregor has contended that Mayweather's drawing power isn't what it once was, especially when considering the paltry numbers he got for his retirement fight in 2015. "If Conor McGregor really wants the fight to happen, stop blowing smoke up everybody's ass and sign the paper".
In a video posted to FightHype, Mayweather was candid about when he wanted the fight to happen.
"He would land those leg kicks, and then the shot would come from there, but in terms of his hands, he doesn't have, I mean he has power, of course he does, but nowhere near the power that I have, I promise you that", he said. I'm exhausted of all this crying about money and talking about you want to fight. There's still no sign a deal to fight each other is imminent, though.
By the way, Conor's bid to fight Floyd Mayweather is of similar magnitude to what Mayweather was reimbursed with after he fought Manny Pacquiao in May 2015.
But, the only concrete offer of $25 million has come from UFC president, Dana White.
