McGregor Will Be 'Sued Beyond Belief' Is He Uses Any MMA Moves In Mayweather Fight

Unless you've been living in some sort of media blackout in recent weeks, you'll probably know that Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather have a fight coming up.

I mean, if you managed to miss the initial announcement, there's been no escape in recent days as the pair have been promoting the 'Money Fight' by taking the piss out of each other on stage, and picking up a fair bit of controversy along the way.

Naturally, the biggest criticism of the fight, and the main reason people are backing a Mayweather win, is that McGregor isn't a boxer. While both men are excellent fighters in their respective disciplines, there's big difference between the two.

Come August 26, undefeated Mayweather will be fighting in his sport, whereas McGregor, who's used to being able to kick, grapple and carry out choke-holds, won't.

And, if those old instincts kicks in during the fight, McGregor will be hit where it hurts - right in the bank account.

At a press conference UFC president Dana White said: "He would get sued beyond belief if he does anything but hit Floyd Mayweather with his hands to the head and body.

"It would be very bad. That can't happen. That can't happen. There's actually language in the contract that that can't happen."

Both men are set to receive a stupid amount of money for the pay-per-view fight. With some sources reporting that McGregor will pick up at least $75 million (£57 million) for the fight.

"Forget about the contract," White said. "Mayweather would just sue McGregor. And it would destroy Conor's life because Mayweather would win.

"Conor is a bit of a wild man, but he likes money as much as Floyd does. If he wants Floyd to have all his money, that's the way to do it."

I'm sure the appeal of all that money will help him focus.
