Developing: Connor McGregor Discusses 'Highly Anticipated" Fight With Floyd Mayweather

It looks like the Conor McGregor-Floyd Mayweather fight might actually happen as the Irishman is very serious about making the boxer his next opponent.

Recently Conor spoke with MMA journalist Ariel Helwani at a special event in Manchester ‘An Experience With Conor McGregor’

Me and Floyd have got to get together and figure it out, the same way Floyd and Manny figured it out,” McGregor told Ariel Helwani during an hour long interview in front of thousands of fans. “Once we come to a set number that I’m happy with, that he’s happy with. Then we go to the customers, we go to the promoters, the buyers. And then we get it done. That’s next. I’ll go to Vegas and I’ll handle the commission, we’ll figure that situation out. And we’ll come to a dotted line and then we’ll go. But this is happening.

“That fight was more than just being explored,” McGregor said. “That fight has been in the works for a while now. There’s a lot of steps to get the fight done. But it’s the fight to make. It’s the fight that people want. It’s the fight that I want. It’s the fight that I’m confident going in there. I’ve got the reach. I’ve got the youth. I’ve got the unpredictable style. You can’t prepare for a style like me. A guy said to me why conquer one world when you can conquer two? So I’m going to go conquer two worlds.”



When asked about whether the UFC would allow him to fight Floyd, Conor had this answer.
“I believe so, with the Ali act I believe I can,” he said, referring to a federal US law put in place to stop promoters from restricting boxers from competing. “But I think it’s smoother with all involved. I think we’re all about good business. I’ve done great business with the UFC, with Dana and everyone. But again, everyone’s gotta know their place. So we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.”

“If Manny and Floyd did half a billion, I believe this one, cross sports, never before seen, this is the first billion dollar fight. So peoples gotta pay for a billion dollar fight. So it’s getting there. We’ll see.”

I believe it will happen by the end of this year or early next year. I believe either side of that it will happen.”

New Issue of ‘Batman’ Will Explore His Catholic Upbringing & Why He’s Not a Christian Anymore

The recent run of Batman comics by red-hot comic book writer Tom King has really leaned into Batman’s human side, exploring his loneliness, mental health and doomed romantic life more profoundly than any in recent memory. And now, it appears, the series is going to tackle yet another of the Dark Knight’s all-too-human experiences: lost faith.In a preview of an upcoming issue illustrated by Lee Weeks and released to Inverse, Bruce Wayne reveals that his father raised him as a Christian. Wayne’s father, as you may be aware, is no longer in the picture, and when he died, he took Bruce’s fledgling faith with him. No word on whether or not Bruce is going to rediscover his faith as part of this story, but he’s not in a great place, generally. His bride-to-be, Catwoman, stood him up at the altar and he’s in trouble with the law for possibly botching a case. So, if ever there was a time for Batman to turn to a higher power, it might be now.You can read the full preview here.
