Technically that's a quote from the hit HBO series "Game of Thrones" as spoken by Jamie Lannister, but it could just as easily be attributed to UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor, who stands just six days away from the biggest fight of his career.

It has also been confirmed by the Nevada State Athletic Commission that the fighters will wear 8oz gloves for their non-title, super welterweight match-up. It's not a must-see fight, that's for sure. Few have been able to take it, and part of the intrigue of this fight is whether Mayweather will be able to survive the shot. In Amplify's Friday email newsletter, under the headline "Floyd Mayweather Telling Fans to Buy Tix to McGregor Fight from Scalper", he criticized the Instagram post, particularly the fact that so many tickets are still available on the primary market.

After much hype they are almost due to meet, with the pair taking to the ring in Las Vegas next Saturday night. "I want to be known as the guy who KO'd Dempsey". As a boxer and a student of the fine art I am compelled to believe Mayweather (despite his advancing age) beats McGregor any way he sees fit. I don't expect either one of them to get into any physical altercation. "The ref will be fair on both sides, I want him to be even". I think it's a farce to a certain degree.

Ali-Inoki offers many parallels to the highly lucrative Mayweather-McGregor affair. "There's so much money involved, I just don't see how it doesn't happen". So I'm very pleased, and obviously I fight in 4-ounce.

"I see no way outside of some sort of weird intervention, like Floyd falling and breaking his ankle, where this is a competitive fight", Hauser said. "I am in a league of my own, and I'll prove that August 26", McGregor said.

Anthony Joshua would be willing to box a mixed martial artist or accept a cage fight in the future. Some of the fighters Mayweather's fought would probably beat Conor McGregor as well; Conor can't really compete.

If the fight goes the distance-which seems likely given Mayweather's struggles to knock out his opponents in recent years-the American's superior boxing ability should shine through to a decision win.

But that may say more about America's appetite for reality TV and spectacle than it does about the two sports themselves.
