Unless you’ve been living on another planet – you know that the McGregor v Mayweather fight is now official for the 26th August in Las Vegas. Yes, that’s right flights to Vegas at that time just got a whole lot more expensive…by a long shot.

Before you start packing up your goods to sell on Facebook buy and sell groups to try and make what is a historic night in combat sports, take a second and enjoy the reactions from some fighters on Twitter.

First up, we got the announcement from the man of the hour, Conor McGregor.

Mayweather also confirmed by releasing this video on his Instagram

Straight after this, his team mate James Gallagher was pretty quick to pile on with a healthy dollop of abuse for Mayweather.

The wife beating obviously being tied to the murky past of Mayweather whom I personally find to be a scumbag.

Conor followed up with this to Dana White as reported by Ariel Helwani.

Angela Hill wasn’t a fan of that though…

It started to get a little bit ridiculous and Forest Griffin chimed in with his own tired take on the whole affair.

Scottish UFC star Steven Ray gave his opinion on the fight feels McGregor has a better chance than people think.

However, things got pretty interesting as Stipe Miocic, the UFC Heavyweight Champion threw down the gauntlet to Anthony Joshua and offered a fight on the card as co-main. Could we see Stipe take on Joshua?
