Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather have both made statements suggesting their fight will happen.
First Mayweather -- who's been at times dismissive of the idea --declared a boxing match against the UFC champion "can happen" and is something that would "give the fans what they want to see."
In interview with Ariel Helwani, McGregor expressed even more confidence in the fight happening.
"My and Floyd got to get together and figure it out. Just like he and Manny figured it out. Once we come to a set number that he's happy with, I'm happy with, then we got to the customers. The promoters, the buyers. Then we get it done. That's next. "I'll go to Vegas, I'll handle the commission or we'll figure the situation out, and then we'll come to a dotted line and then we'll go. But this is happening."A big obstacle to the fight could be McGregor's contract with the UFC. McGregor told Helwani he believes he could go forward without the UFC, but would prefer to bring Dana White and company along as a partner of sorts.
