Nate Diaz Drops Perfect Message After Mayweather vs McGregor Announcement

Nate Diaz Drops Perfect Message After Mayweather vs McGregor Announcement

"It's official", Mayweather said on his Instagram account next to a video poster of both fighters.

Moments before Mayweather's announcement, McGregor sent out a simple four-word statement on Twitter, with a picture of Floyd Mayweather Sr. instead of Mayweather Jr. He also included photos of the pair.

The two fighters both announced the fight Wednesday, after months of speculation about whether Mayweather would come out of retirement at the age of 40 to face a mixed martial arts fighter who has never had a pro boxing match. With McGregor set to make more money in this fight than all of his UFC bouts put together, is he ever going to return to the Octagon?

Ireland's McGregor (21-3), a 28-year-old southpaw, is the first UFC fighter to simultaneously hold titles in two different divisions and one of the best MMA fighters in the world, but he will be making his professional boxing debut against Mayweather, one of the greatest boxers in history.

Going into the fight, Mayweather, who's been retired since September 15, is the favorite with an undefeated record of 49-0.

Despite having little or no boxing experience, White insists his MMA client McGregor is confident of victory. It takes a bet of $800 to win $100 while betting on Mayweather.

There will, of course, be no titles on the line, but it is an opportunity for both to cash in financially.

The fight will be televised on pay-per-view on Showtime and would likely gross tens of millions of dollars. Have we seen the last of McGregor in the UFC?
