Originally A Charity Bout
When this fight was originally proposed by McGregor, it was billed as a charity boxing bout. Which the UFC would obviously want an involvement in, just like when McGregor boxed Mayweather.
Now UFC 257 has a headliner and it’s a rematch at lightweight. It’s not expected to be for an interim or vacant title, as Khabib’s official retirement plans remain undecided yet. The 29-0 champion, is now ranked #1 P4P in the UFC’s rankings.
Back when this fight was first pitched by McGregor, it was markeed as a martial arts spar exhibition. Which will obviously continue the fued ‘The Notorious’ one has with the UFC, which is ongoing.
It wasn’t long ago when McGregor announced plans to box Manny Pacquiao, where he opened as a huge betting underdog to PacMan.
So which is it – a boxing bout against one of the greatest boxers of the past generation in the middle east? Or a charity martial art spar in the fair city of Dublin. The list of charity’s for donation are expected to come. What we know is that Dustin Poirier’s charity The Good Fight is already on the fight poster.
