It's ON: We Have A Date For The Mayweather Vs McGregor Fight

Save the date, guys, because we FINALLY have confirmation on when Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor will be going head-to-head in the fight of all fights.

The news comes weeks after Irish MMA champion McGregor challenged Mayweather to put his money where his mouth was and pick a time and a place - and pick a time and place he did.

In an Instagram video that has already racked up more than 1.5 million views in just five hours, "Money" revealed that he'll be coming out of retirement on Saturday August 26 in Las Vegas for what is sure to be a bout to remember.

McGregor quickly followed up with his own announcement which, in true McGregor style, bagged the shit out of his opponent; the post, captioned "The fight is on", was a photo of himself and Mayweather's father.

THE FIGHT IS ON.

It's not yet known if the MGM Grand Garden Arena will host the event, with the T-Mobile Arena also rumoured to have their hat in the ring.

Get it? In the ring?

Anyway, Saturday August 26. Jot it in your diary, add a giant red "X" to your calendar and set a reminder on your phone.

This is gonna be good.
