If Conor McGregor has any designs on violation out MMA moves opposite Floyd Mayweather Jr. on Aug. 26, UFC boss Dana White did his best to inhibit him Thursday.

When asked about a probability of McGregor going over a manners of boxing, White done it transparent that it won’t be tolerated, according to Zach Braziller of the New York Post: “He would have a lawsuit opposite him that would destroy Conor’s life, and Mayweather would win. It positively can't happen. He would be sued over faith if he does anything though strike Floyd Mayweather with his hands to a conduct and body.”

McGregor responded, “We’ll see on a night,” when a theme of pulling from his MMA credentials came up.

Both White and Showtime Sports executive clamp boss Stephen Espinoza pronounced that denunciation in a quarrel agreement would retaliate McGregor significantly if he pulled any such stunt.

In further to McGregor removing disqualified, Mayweather would mount to be in line for an even bigger payday than he already is due to a intensity lawsuit.

The hitch with Mayweather will symbol McGregor’s initial veteran fighting match, while a 40-year-old Mayweather is a ideal 49-0.

McGregor is 21-3 in MMA and is a reigning UFC lightweight champion, though that fact isn’t expected to do him most good in a fighting realm.

Despite his miss of fighting experience, McGregor guaranteed an early knockout of Mayweather during Tuesday’s press conference, per Brian Campbell of CBS Sports.

Mayweather has never been knocked out in his veteran career, and he has 26 knockout wins to his credit.
