"That's why I call him the unicorn". "I don't care about money. His belief in himself is unbelievable".

White attended a sparring session that took place August 1 at the UFC's Performance Institute in Las Vegas where McGregor has been preparing for Mayweather. And as far as White is concerned, he's not about to start picking against his fighter anytime soon.

"I will say the feud is genuine but then again when u [sic] get to know the guy it's pretty easy not to like him lol", he added.

It's been watch over 2.7 million times in the past few days - you can check it out here. "He was hilarious and fun to be around, and once he got in front of the public, we felt he could be a big star".

After both Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor suggested that they fight in lighter gloves than was initially planned, the unusual request will be voted on by the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC).

Despite whatever miscommunication there might have been between the two men, McGregor maintains that Malignaggi simply couldn't hang with him in the ring and left because of a hit to his ego. And when the deal was made, the world started watching, reading and listening to everything associated with the bout.

It's only two weeks to go until Conor McGregor's much-anticipated showdown with Floyd Mayweather.

"It means the world to have fans travelling from Ireland and all over the world for this fight".

When asked during a media scrum if he agrees McGregor, who has never boxed professionally before, will "win" in some ways if he's able to last 12 rounds with the all-time great, Mayweather quickly agreed. "But here we are".

"I don't know how many times they've labeled me a joke", McGregor said. I'll meet him maybe after the fight! This [challenging Floyd Mayweather] is gonna be a FIGHT! "If it goes the distance, it's a victory for him - in my eyes also".

McGregor isn't planning any back steps as he attempts once again to accomplish the impossible on August 26 vs. Mayweather at T-Mobile Arena. "We're doing insane numbers", Mayweather said.

"All of these record-breaking events and the numbers that are associated with that, all is because of Floyd Mayweather".
