A POTENTIAL blockbuster fight between Floyd Mayweather and UFC star Conor McGregor has been given the green light by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC).

Though the feuding pair have not yet come to an agreement, NSAC chief Bob Bennett has said he would be “honoured” to have the fight happen in Las Vegas.

Given that McGregor would be making his professional boxing debut against one of the greatest boxers of all time, the potential bout has been met with some criticism but Bennett insists the Commission would sanction it.
