LAS VE­GAS — Conor Mc­Gre­gor has come to an agree­ment with the UFC that moves a pro­posed fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. closer to re­al­ity.

UFC pres­i­dent Dana White said he reached a deal with Mc­Gre­gor, MMA’s big­gest star and light­weight cham­pion, and will now start ne­go­ti­a­tions on a mega fight with the re­tired Mayweather that could be worth US$1 bil­lion.

Mayweather said this week he would end his nearly two-year re­tire­ment for what could be the rich­est pay­day in fight his­tory.
