Looks like the rumors were true after all.
The expected September date for Floyd Mayweather versus Conor McGregor did carry legs at least until the ending of Saturday night’s main event. Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin announced their highly anticipated fight shortly after Canelo defeated Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.
“We just lost our date,” admitted UFC President Dana White on Saturday night. White has been actively denying rumors about a September date or contracts being signed but in actuality the target was September all along.
White was in attendance at Saturday’s big Cinco de Mayo fight between Alvarez and Chavez Jr. Unfortunately for the UFC President the ending caused a bit of a setback for his plans. The two parties behind Mayweather-McGregor have to look for a different date for their super fight since the original now belongs to ‘Triple G’ and Canelo.
