UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor is finally going to face off with Floyd Mayweather but he better stick to just punching if he doesn’t want to get sued by the Mayweather team. During yesterday’s fight announcents, UFC president Dana White said it’s clear that McGregor would face serious financial sanctions if he kicked Mayweather during the fight.

“That [kicking] will not happen; it’s in the contract. This is a boxing match under the Nevada commission under the rules of boxing. We talk about a guy of Floyd Mayweather’s value in the sport—the lawsuit if that ever happened…Conor loves money and he would lose a lot of money if that happened.”
With no kicking or MMA moves allowed during this match, there’s a big reason why Mayweather is currently a huge -1000 favorite to beat Conor in their fight.
