UFC superstar and lightweight champion Conor McGregor is at it again. His highly anticipated boxing match with Floyd Mayweather Jr. is close to being a done deal. It’s as close as it has been for what seems like a dozen times before it. Every time it’s reported that the deal is done we are back at square one and the rumors start again.
McGregor made the following comments recently to IFL.tv that sure make it sound legit.
