And like that *poof* it's gone? That's a confused retelling of the end of The Usual Suspects, for those of you wondering about the reference. Floyd Mayweather took to Twitter to address the reported signed sealed and delivered deal to fight Conor McGregor, and as everyone (somewhat) expected, it's not happening. Yet. It's not happening until it's happening. And where there's smoke, there's fire.
Check this out:
Interesting how Floyd never uses McGregor's name directly while directly addressing the situation that blew up the internet on Valentine's Day. He's truly a master at PR.
So what now?
We wait. As I said above, where there's smoke, there's fire. The initial report came from a source inside McGregor's camp (IT'S COMING FROM INSIDE THE CAMP), and while his camp could be as leaky as a Trump White House, and we have confirmation from the NSAC commissioner that a deal is in the works, we're probably not going to get an announcement unless it comes directly from Floyd, Conor or the UFC.
I have a feeling the negotiation process will involve fight announcement rights.
