The wheels are in motion and it feels so sweet. Of course, we’re talking about UFC champion Conor McGregor’s upcoming superfight with undefeated pugilist Floyd Mayweather on Aug. 26 live on Showtime pay-per-view (PPV) from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. With just over one month to go, the fighters are settled into their camps and exhausting all options to further help their chances of winning the biggest fight in combat sports history.
In preparation for the massive showdown this August, Showtime released the official fight poster earlier today (Fri., July 21, 2017) via Twitter:

Not too shabby. It doesn’t seem overly creative, but seeing these two on a poster side-by-side is going to look insane either way you piece it together.
This obviously a huge step up in competition for McGregor considering he’ll be making his boxing debut against one of the best defensive boxers of all time, but he’s as important as Mayweather is when it comes to promoting this unworldly encounter and creating lasting buzz. Both fighters have done their part up to this point and this poster is a nice addition as we drawer closer to fight night.
