Earlier this week, Floyd Mayweather made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

One interesting thing that Kimmel asked Mayweather was "what happens if Conor kicks you in the head?"

Mayweather's response was: "That's a huge fine, he would lose 90% of his money or more."

"He wouldn't want that happening to him."

When the same question was put to Mayweather, whether he would kick McGregor, he replied saying: "There's no chance of that happening I stick to the Queen's rules."

There's no doubt this question was on many people's minds, including UFC commentator Joe Rogan, who claimed if McGregor kicked Mayweather in the head "he would be a god damn folk hero."

Many UFC fans would be ecstatic if midway through the fight McGregor said enough is enough and just abandoned all the rules of boxing by taking a swing to Mayweather's head with his foot.

Yet, fans of McGregor will know that, like Mayweather, he really loves his money and is not afraid of showing off.

Examples include his own private jet which he is keen to show off as much as possible.

As a result, Mayweather is probably correct in saying McGregor would be very unlikely to sacrifice 90% of his money with both men set to be earning well over $100 million in this record breaking fight.

The anticipated fight takes place next Saturday in Las Vegas, and fans all around the world, whether they be boxing or UFC fans, will be getting very excited as the dream fight draws ever closer.

Mayweather is predicted as the favourite by many bookmakers, yet McGregor has shown time and time again throughout his career that he is not to be underestimated and thrives in the underdog role.

However, one thing's for sure, Notorious won't be making any spinning kicks, and if he does, he can say bye bye to that lucrative payday.
