What happens if McGregor uses mixed martial arts tactics against Mayweather?
Well, he would be “sued beyond belief”, according to UFC President Dana White.
White said: “He would get sued beyond belief if he does anything but hit Floyd Mayweather with his hands to the head and body.
“It would be very bad. That can’t happen. That can’t happen. There’s actually language in the contract that that can’t happen.”
White added that Mayweather could just sue McGregor for damages.
He said: “When you go to court, any lawsuit is about damage. And the damages on Mayweather if something like that happened — that can’t happen.
