ESPN is reporting that a Las Vegas sportsbook has posted odds on a MMA bout between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather.

The Las Vegas Westgate Superbook early odds suggest that the bout will take place in the octagon with McGregor a 1/10 favourite and Mayweather an outsider at 13/2. 

The fight must be MMA only according to the bookmaker and must take place before September 1, 2019 for the bets to count with a limit of $2k on the bets.

Mayweather has stated in the past that he was seriously thinking about having a future in MMA and even told TMZ Sports that he had applied for a licence. 

"Everything takes time. Eventually, we're gonna apply for the license, and hopefully we can fight."

“I’m gonna start soon. We’ve [he and his possible trainer] been texting back and forth. We talked a couple times, so we gonna start working out real soon.

“Even if it takes six to eight months, whatever it takes, we want to make sure that everything is done correctly and everything is done the right way.”

Watch. This. Space.
