Mayweather (49-0), considered to be one of the greatest boxers of all-time and undefeated as a professional, is a former five-division world champion. In 2016, ESPN named Mayweather the greatest pound-for-pound boxer of the last 25 years. Mayweather is one of the biggest pay-per-view draws in combat sports history and has topped the list of the world's highest-paid athletes several times in his career.
McGregor, the UFC lightweight champion, is the biggest draw in UFC® history and became the first fighter to hold championships in two weight classes simultaneously. McGregor's 13-second knockout to win the featherweight title in 2015 is the fastest victory in UFC championship history.
