Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion Conor McGregor will make his boxing debut against undefeated pugilist Floyd Mayweather Jr. at the upcoming “Money Fight” on Sat., Aug. 26, 2017 inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Pretty sure you knew that already.
To help get fight fans amped for this weekend’s foray into the “sweet science,” the world’s largest mixed martial arts (MMA) organization and Mayweather vs. McGregor co-promoter is rolling out a series of “Embedded” video blogs.
From the official YouTube description:
On Episode 2 of Mayweather vs. McGregor Embedded, UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor signs a fan's cast before enjoying another hard sparring session in the boxing ring. McGregor's performance draws praise from both coach John Kavanagh and referee Joe Cortez, who was part of the Irishman's camp. Twelve-time boxing champion Floyd Mayweather courts his fans at a Mayweather vs. McGregor pop-up shop and reviews some possible high-style mouthpieces for Saturday night. McGregor brings his baby to work with him at the UFC Performance Institute, where he checks out the made-for-adults nap room. Then Vegas local Mayweather makes his weekly trip to a skating rink to unwind. Mayweather vs. McGregor Embedded is an all-access, behind-the-scenes video blog leading up to the blockbuster Mayweather vs. McGregor super welterweight fight taking place Saturday, August 26, live on Pay-Per-View.

Mayweather and McGregor are scheduled to compete for 12 rounds in 8oz gloves at 154 pounds with no championship titles on the line; however, a loss for the former would devastate the boxing community while a defeat for the latter will probably get the UFC lightweight title picture sorted out sooner, rather than later.
