UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor has met Dana White's deadline to finalize his side of the terms for a mega boxing fight with Floyd Mayweather. With that deal done, White explained that he now will negotiate with Mayweather's team in order to get the second deal done that will see Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather step into the boxing ring against each other.

White and McGregor did not announce specifics of the deal.

"They are both very risky in their own elements, but this is only the element of one of the fighters", he said.

Should the two sides agree to what would be a lucrative fight, the most likely location for the bout is Las Vegas.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. Congratulations to all parties involved.

Negotiations with team Mayweather are ongoing, and it looks like this fight will nearly definitely go ahead, but with many details to be finalised it will most likely be late in the year.

Many have refused to give McGregor a chance against Mayweather and for good reason, as the "Notorious" one has never competed in a professional boxing match.

"[McGregor] can actually go and fight Mayweather and I've said it time and time again on this show, he will lose".

"If we can come to a deal with (Al) Haymon and (Floyd) Mayweather, the fight's going to happen". "I don't know what obstacles or hurdles they have to jump over". It appears that fight fans are now supportive of the match as both MMA and boxing promoters have acknowledged the continuing interest of the fans in the fight.

Mayweather was in London on Thursday to promote a bout involving one of his proteges, Gervonta Davis, and he did not want to discuss the possible fight against McGregor. He told the LA Times that he, as a fighter, would be unpredictable.

"The girl we just signed, she's the last person to beaten her, if I'm not mistaken".
