Leave it to the NBA on TNT guys to break news in the boxing world of all places, as UFC president Dana White told the fellas that the Conor McGregor side of the Floyd Mayweather fight is done.
Now all that’s left is to get Mayweather’s side to sign off and this much-anticipated spectacle that’s been a half-decade in the making will actually happen.

But during his tour of Europe, Mayweather offered a much-less optimistic version of the fight coming to fruition, almost dismissing the idea that it’s in his hands at this point.
So, whether or not this is just more salesmanship on Mayweather’s part is unknown, but it seems like this bout is far from a done deal at this point.
