Check out the fighter reactions to the boxing showdown between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather.

Conor McGregor has a way of manifesting dreams into reality.

The latest dream to come true for the ex-Irish plumbing apprentice is a mega-money boxing bout against none other than Floyd Mayweather Jr.

After months of negotiations, both men came to an agreement and the fight was officially announced on Wednesday.

This could be the biggest spectacle in combat sports history, and McGregor’s fellow MMA fighters shared their excitement on social media.

UFC fan favorite Nate Diaz also had his say on Instagram.

It’s gonna be a good fight for that #2 spot.

“It’s gonna be a good fight for that #2 spot.”

McGregor, 28, is the current UFC lightweight champion and former UFC featherweight champion. Despite his boxing skills and killer left hand, ‘The Notorious’ has never laced up the gloves in the boxing ring. McGregor is the one of the fastest rising stars in the world and became the UFC’s first ever simultaneous champ at UFC 205.

Mayweather, 40, is quite possibly the greatest defensive boxer of all time and is undefeated at 49-0. ‘Money’ will look to extend his career resume to a perfect 50-0 with a win over Dublin’s local hero.

Mayweather vs. McGregor is set to take place on August 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
