The wait is almost over for Conor McGregor fans - the Dubliner has signed a deal with the UFC which will allow him to fight Floyd Mayweather.
Over the past year there has been a lot of speculation as to whether the fight would happen or not because the Notorious is still contracted to the UFC. It was rumored that president of the organisation Dana White was against the idea of any sort of "super-fight".
However, last night McGregor confirmed that he had reached a deal with his management and the UFC that will allow him to take part in the bout.
In a statement to MACLife, Conor said "It is an honour to sign this record breaking deal alongside my partners Zuffa LLC, The Ultimate Fighting Championship and Paradigm Sports Management,
The first, and most important part of this historic contract has now officially been signed off on. Congratulations to all parties involved. We now await Al Haymon and his boxer’s signature in the coming days."
