McGregor applies for Nevada boxing license

McGregor had previously been ineligible for a boxing license due to a fine he incurred past year.

No tentative date has been set for a potential Mayweather-McGregor fight.

Now all there is left to work out is Floyd Mayweather's side. But his plan now is to try to lure Mayweather out retirement for a superfight with McGregor.

"It is an honor to sign this record-breaking deal alongside my partners Zuffa LLC, the Ultimate Fighting Championship and Paradigm Sports Management", McGregor said.

Most recently McGregor signed a "record breaking deal", and is now waiting on Mayweather to sign the paperwork.

Earlier this week, UFC President Dana White had indicated he agreed to the deal for McGregor and Mayweather also indicated he would like to get a deal done.

Just today, Mayweather shot down a question about his side of the deal while appearing at a press conference in London for a boxing match between Gervonta Davis and Liam Walsh.

We knew what we were playing for, we had to prepare well. "We had a game more to play, but today was very important". It was his 367th goal and no player has ever scored more in Europe's five major leagues.


Questions remain about how much money both fighters would get or when the fight would even take place.

That was not the case the last time McGregor applied for a boxing license in Nevada. Conor McGregor's just signed his end of the megabout's contract that is being negotiated by Al Haymon, Mayweather's manager and prominent boxing promoter.

However, that means McGregor vs. Mayweather would need to take in nearly double the $600 million the American's fight with Manny Pacquiao made - dubbed "the richest night in sports history". Congratulations to all parties involved.

The bout between two champions, one from mixed martial arts and the other from boxing, would be the first of its kind and it is definitely one fans would be eager to watch.

Many have refused to give McGregor a chance against Mayweather and for good reason, as the "Notorious" one has never competed in a professional boxing match.

Mayweather has repeatedly said that he won't come out of retirement, against anyone, for less than $100 million.
