It’s been a circus, but why shouldn’t it? McGregor is making a career-high payday – what would you do for an estimated $70m?

When you really break it down, this fight ultimately has two potential outcomes:

A 40-year-old retired boxer beating a 29-year-old mixed martial artist in his prime, who is the face of the UFC, or, a 29-year-old mixed martial artist conquering a 40-year-old retired boxer.

The excitement exists for a reason though, these theoretical match ups rarely happen but are always the topic of conversation – Who doesn’t remember Rocky Balboa or all the talk of “what if Bruce Lee fought Muhammad Ali?”

There is plenty that could be talked about and has been talked about. Have the UFC lost their biggest star to boxing? Will Mayweather’s age affect the result? Are the skills of UFC transferable to the boxing world?

In the end, none of it matters, and the time for talk is officially done. Instead, it’s time to find out who wins this battle of Floyd Mayweather versus Conor McGregor.
