Watch the final MayMac presser.
The final press conference featuring Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor is about to get started at the KA Theater at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. The pre-show started at 3:45pm EST and the actually presser was scheduled to begin at 4pm, but just like the four-stop international press tour we don't expect everything to get started right on time.
The two fighters arrived at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas yesterday for the "Grand Arrival" and of course, more words were exchanged. But it wasn't just Conor and Floyd who were jawing - former boxing champ, and McGregor's former sparring partner, Paulie Malignaggi also got into a spat with McGregor.

In the days leading up to the super welterweight bout, Conor has reiterated that he plans to knock Floyd out - the only thing that has changed is which round he predicts it will happen in. Most recently the UFC champ said Mayweather will be unconscious in the first round and at the very least, inside of two rounds.
Floyd, on the other hand, has said he plans on being aggressive and giving fans a show. According to the New York Post, at yesterday's Grand Arrival, Mayweather said he doesn't expect the fight to go the distance like many of his other highly anticipated fights.
Per the New York Post,
“I told you before that this isn’t going to go the distance,” Mayweather said. “So if you’re going to bet, bet that it won’t go.”
Tonight's press conference won't be the last time these two fighters come face to face before their fight. The weigh-in is scheduled for Friday, which will reportedly include musical performances beginning at 1:30pm EST and the actual weigh in around 4:30pm EST, according to Bleacher Report.
The actual fight will finally go down on Saturday, August 26th at the T-Mobile Arena. The PPV will cost $100. The current odds for the Mayweather and McGregor fight, as well as the undercard, are as follows, according to OddsShark.
Badou Jack (-350) Nathan Cleverly (+285), light heavyweight
