It’s official. Both Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather have confirmed that a fight between the two will take place in Las Vegas on August 26. Here’s a bunch of tweets saying or inferring that it would never happen…
Remember all the talk about Rousey fighting Mayweather.. not we have to deal with this "McGregor open to box Mayweather"

a McGregor vs. Mayweather fight will never happen and they both know it, BUT, don't rule out the WWE doing a stunt with them at wrestlemania

@JoshuaCaudill85 def not gonna happen. McGregor's just bating UFC for control and a stake, because he can

This fight will happen before Mayweather/McGregor does… and this is fake news too. https://t.co/OhFSnFlxlL

BTW Unless McGregor leaves the UFC or Dana White hits his head the Floyd Conor fight will NEVER happen!

Floyd Mayweather knows he's not really fighting Conor McGregor. But he also knows saying it's close or not close is news and he loves that.

Mayweather vs. McGregor is never going to happen. Been a news-making stunt the whole time and media can’t help but bite every time.

not this, but the Mayweather-McGregor fight is certainly fake news
