Nevada State Athletic Commission Executive Director Bennett says he doesn’t anticipate any issues in regards to the sanctioning of the possible Mayweather-McGregor bout.
That’s certainly a fight that we would approve and have in Vegas. Who wouldn’t want to regulate the two best fighters at 150 pounds in their respective unarmed combat fields? Mayweather’s a phenomenal fighter, and so is McGregor. Sure, that’s a fight we would approve…[McGregor]’s a phenomenal athlete. He’s arguably one of the best strikers from the UFC. He’s in great shape; he’s hardcore, he trains hard, fights hard. Mayweather is arguably one of the best fighters of all time because he doesn’t believe in getting hit. But let’s not forget Floyd (will be) 40 and Conor is 28, so it’d make for a great fight.
