McGregor will continue to be tested under the UFC’s drug program as well. The UFC Lightweight Champion has been tested five times by USADA in 2017.Since Mayweather’s official return to boxing, he has been tested twice under USADA. Mayweather did not have to undergo drug testing between his retirement in 2015 and his return a few months ago. When he was active in 2015, Mayweather was tested 34 times by USADA.Conor McGregor has criticized the system in the past. He spoke to MMAHEAT about USADA testing leading up to his UFC 194 fight with Jose Aldo.

“Even still, I think it’s a flawed system if I’m being honest. The UFC are taking great, great steps to clean the sport and it’s phenomenal what they’re doing. Still, it’s a flawed system,” McGregor saidMayweather had his own issues with USADA in 2015. The organization did not inform the Nevada Athletic Commission of a therapeutic use exemption for an IV used before his match against Manny Pacquiao in 2015.

The USADA spokesperson says that they will vigorously test both athletes leading up to their August 26th boxing match in Las Vegas.

Two of the biggest stars from combat sports will meet in the boxing ring under the Queensberry Rules at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.“Money” Mayweather has always been one to make the fight walkout a spectacle bringing in celebrity friends with him along for the trek from backstage to the ring. We’ve seen Justin Bieber, Lil Wayne, and even the Burger King make the walk alongside Mayweather.

Who can we expect to walk out with Mayweather this time? For this fight that many are predicting will break the current record for the richest fight in combat sports, which was Mayweather’s 2015 bout with Manny Pacquiao, ‘Love & Hip Hop’ star Jason Lee who is a close friend of Mayweather’s says he will be calling one of McGregor’s rivals for the walkout.Listen, I don’t know but I’m from Stockton, California and I was just with Floyd in London when the whole shit went down with Conor and I’m gonna make the call to Nate Diaz,” Lee said to TMZ. “I would love to see him walk out with Floyd. Oh yeah, that would be awesome for the town.

“He’s from Stockton. We’re from Stockton! Stockton people are almost on the level of a Ferrari. We gonna keep doing what it takes stay to stay relevant.”

When asked if Bieber would be walking out with Mayweather for this fight, Lee was quick to shoot it down.

“Naw,” said Lee. Bieber found Jesus and is somewhere prayed up.”

TMZ then asked if Bieber was no longer down with The Money Team and Lee said, “I don’t want to officially say that. I just want to say I don’t see Bieber walking out with Floyd.”Former two-division world titleholder Carl Frampton is a Conor McGregor fan and says he is not only revolutionizing mixed martial arts, but boxing too.

While some in the boxing world are dismissing McGregor's fight with Floyd Mayweather as a money-grabbing mismatch, Frampton is looking forward to it and will fly out from Northern Ireland to Las Vegas to watch the junior middleweight contest at the T-Mobile Arena on Aug. 26.Ireland's McGregor, the UFC lightweight champion who has never boxed professionally, will face American Mayweather in a fight that has divided opinion but could break the record [the Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao fight in 2015 generated $623.5 million in revenue] for being the richest in history.

McGregor, 29, from Dublin, will earn at least $100 million even though bookmakers have placed heavy odds on him being able to beat Mayweather (49-0, 26 KOs), a world titleholder in five different weight divisions and considered the best boxer of his generation.

But featherweight Frampton (23-1, 14 KOs), 30, from Belfast, has no problem with the fight or hype after a foul-mouthed, international media tour that visited four cities in as many days earlier this month.

Frampton is excited about the fight, even if he thinks it will not be much of a contest.

"I think Conor's brilliant," Frampton told ESPN. "He's a showman, he's mental and he's a maniac. I really like him and I'm going out to watch it with some of the others [fighters] from our gym, like Josh Taylor, Conrad Cummings and our wives. We're going out for a mad weekend."I don't think the fight is bad for boxing, it's an event, and I'm looking forward to it. As a boxing match, it's a mismatch but you have to give it to Conor McGregor. He's making his boxing debut and he's talked himself into a $100 million pay day. Good luck to him."For a prediction, Frampton is trying to be as polite as he can be."I hate saying who's going to win but it's hard to look past Mayweather, he's just too good.Boxing and MMA are two different sports, so if I'm being honest, if Conor lands a glove on Mayweather he will be doing very well.

"If Mayweather makes fighters like Manny Pacquiao and Canelo [Alvarez] look ordinary, what can Conor McGregor do? But it's unfair because you are talking about two different sports."

McGregor, who calls himself The Notorious, sent Frampton a good luck message before the McGregor vs Mayweather Live  Northern Irishman lost his WBA world featherweight title to Mexican Leo Santa Cruz in Las Vegas in January.

Frampton, who fights Andres Gutierrez at the SSE Arena in his home city of Belfast on Saturday, has yet to meet McGregor but says appearing on the same bill as his fellow Irish fighter is now a possibility.

"It's going to break pay-per-view records, this could be the start of something new. In 10 years' time this could be the norm with guys fighting from UFC fighting boxers," Frampton told ESPN.

"Conor said it's great working with Mayweather and Al Haymon, so maybe something could be done in the future with UFC guys on the same bill as boxers.

"I've not met Conor yet. He's sent me a few messages wishing me good luck before fights and I would love to meet him. I would love to [go] on a night out with him. It would be mad."Frampton's fellow Belfast boxer Michael Conlan (3-0, 3 KOs) was accompanied to the ring by McGregor when he made his professional debut as the main event at Madison Square Garden Theater in New York on March 17.

Bantamweight Conlan, who asked his friend McGregor about appearing on the undercard on Aug 26, is also struggling to see how the UFC star can beat Mayweather.

"Conor's Irish, and I back Conor 100 percent," Conlan told the Belfast Telegraph.

"It's almost an impossible task. It has been an impossible task so far, so you can't really go out on a limb and say Conor's going to win 100 percent."

But another Irish boxer, Donegal middleweight Jason Quigley (13-0, 10 KOs), is backing McGregor to knock out Mayweather, who is looking to extend his unbeaten record to 50-0.

"People will think I'm crazy and people will go mad about this, but mark my words, Conor McGregor is going to knock Floyd Mayweather out cold," Quigley told Sky Sports.

"Floyd is moving on in his career, he's getting past it a little bit now. He keeps himself well, don't get me wrong, but Floyd Mayweather won't hurt or won't damage Conor McGregor.

"In the UFC, the stuff they go through on the ground with knees and elbows, everything, I think Conor McGregor is definitely going to open a lot of eyes. He's going to make history and be the first man to knock Mayweather out cold."British broadcasters are battling it out for the right to show the Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor super fight later this month, with some predicting it could shatter pay-per-view (PPV) records.Matchroom Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn, who looks after fighters like Anthony Joshua, speculated on Tuesday that Sky Sports, BT Sport/Box Nation, and ITV want to air the Las Vegas showdown on August 26.Business Insider contacted IMG, which own the rights to the fight, to ask whether a bidding war had broken out. "There has been active widespread interest and we are in advanced stages of discussions with several parties," a spokesman told us.

Hearn, who has an exclusive arrangement to show and promote his fights on Sky Sports, said IMG should wrap up a deal as early this week so that the winning broadcaster can get on with promoting the fight.

"I have had conversations with IMG and I would think Sky have bid, BT Sport/Box Nation have bid, and ITV have bid," Hearn told IFL TV on Tuesday. "All the broadcasters have put their bids in but there's been no decision yet."

BI contacted ITV Box Office and Box Nation for comment, but has yet to get a response.The fight attracted so much global publicity that it was also a PPV success in other territories, particularly the UK. Despite a 5 a.m start, Sky Sports managed to sell the event to 1 million households.

This means that, because the event carried a £19.95 price point, the PPV would have generated approximately £20 million from consumers alone (advertisement slots and event sponsorship would have brought in even more revenue).

Hearn thinks Mayweather v McGregor will top this. "It is a huge event, it will create a huge revenue and it is going to break box office records," he told GQ last month.Fight tickets went on sale at 6pm UK time on Monday, but the first batch of tickets quickly became unavailable just minutes after being released on Ticketmaster.The cheapest ticket for the event on the website started at £385, while a premium front row seat retailed at £7706, but those prices were far cheaper than the Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather charges on second-hand websites such as Viagogo, Stubhub and Vivid Seats.
