In order to make sure that doesn't happen, UFC president Dana White confirmed late Wednesday on a media conference call that language was added to the contract, including the kind of financial penalties that are created to deter such practices. "The good thing about fighting is its unpredictability".

When interviewed by CNN's Rachel Nichols about the domestic violence in 2014, Mayweather said nothing has been proven, even though he served jail time for hitting the mother of his children.

"Floyd said '154 is no problem, I don't want a catchweight, '" Ellerbe said. The interest already generated by the fight is extraordinary and the crossing of the disciplines of fighting and MMA is forecasted to pull in a record number of views as well as live attendance. "So I think he has to really keep his end strong for this fight". Floyd is one of the greatest of all time in boxing.

Pakistan rout India for Champions Trophy title
India blew the chance to seal a clean sweep as victory would have made Kohli's team world No.1 in one-day and Test cricket . Complimented by contrasting styles, the conservative Azhar Ali and offensive Fakhar provide the ideal foil for each other.

"People telling me Mayweather will have his hands full trying to land on McGregor - STOP IT!" he wrote.

The bout will take place under normal boxing rules, despite Conor McGregor never having boxed as an amateur or professional. Mayweather walked into that fight 10 pounds lighter than his opponent. It's always going to be evolving. "Fights like this will only help the sport grow", said Holm. That means you'd have to bet $1200 on Mayweather to win $100 if he wins.

McGregor is the most accomplished and charismatic star on UFC's roster, holding a career record of 21-3.

Ed Gillespie narrowly wins GOP primary for Governor
The Virginia gubernatorial primary on Tuesday delivered good news for Democrats and an ominous warning for the Trump-ized GOP . Perriello's energetic campaign drew national attention and spurred Northam to adopt a similarly aggressive anti-Trump message.

UFC president Dana White described it as "the impossible deal is now done" after bringing the biggest names in boxing and UFC into the ring. "You have to understand, obviously, with Mayweather and Pacquiao - and Stephen [Espinoza] can attest on this - is that that was a fight that fans had talked about for years". The 12-round fight will be fought at 154 pounds and will mark a return to the ring for Mayweather after an nearly two-year layoff.

As for Conor McGregor and if he expected the Irish UFC champion to return to the Octagon, White seemed extremely confident.
