Chael Sonnen is reporting that Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor will happen.
Chael Sonnen took to twitter a week ago to say that the proposed boxing match between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather will happen. The fighter and MMA analyst has since doubled up his statements, saying that he is “reporting” that it will indeed push through.
Connor vs Floyd is ON!

Sonnen says it wasn’t just both Floyd and Conor saying that the fight will happen, he also cites a source he has from the ticketing company.
“For some reason, both of these fighters have said they’re fighting, but no reporter has announced it. Now I have information from someone higher than that, which is a guy at a ticketing company where the ‘build’ was sent in,” Sonnen said on his You’re Welcome podcast.
“To tell you what that means, it’s called a ‘build’. In that industry, that’s when you submit to the ticketing company, what you want, what your card is, what your date is — essentially, your schematics, this is what the arena layout is going to look like. That’s called the build, that’s the first step to lining up your tickets,” he said. “The build was submitted, and I got it right from the ticketing guy.
“Whether that information is accurate or not, I believe it is. I believe it is enough that I reported it, I tweeted it. I will tell you again, I don’t know how to use any clearer language, Conor and Floyd are going to fight.”
