White did add that Showtime and Mayweather Promotions will be handling the event and most of the build, but the UFC is planning to promote McGregor, the reigning UFC lightweight champion, as much as possible. "Conor also believes with all his heart he will knock Mayweather out". Conor McGregor boxing match is finally official.
