The details haven’t been revealed, but expect Conor McGregor to face a ‘heavy fine’ if he throws a kick or any other mixed martial arts technique in his 12-round boxing showdown against Floyd Mayweather Jr. on Aug. 26.

Mayweather and McGregor will compete under Queensberry boxing rules at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, and ‘Money’ says the Irishman would ‘probably’ lose 90 percent of his purse if he decides to fight dirty.

“That’s a fine, that’s a huge fine,” Mayweather told Jimmy Kimmel after being asked what would happen if McGregor kicked him in the head. “I don’t think he’d want to lose, probably 90 percent of his money or even more.

“I don’t know what it’s gonna be, but it’s gonna be a heavy fine.”

Although it’s highly unlikely that McGregor will throw a kick, many expect the UFC lightweight champion to use unorthodox movement techniques to throw ‘The Best Ever’ off guard.

During the May-Mac media world tour, Mayweather said he would be game to fight ‘The Notorious’ in the Octagon, and the 40-year-old boxing great didn’t rule out the possibility when asked by Kimmel on Tuesday night.

“As of right now, we gotta get past August 26,” Mayweather said. “Once we get past August 26, then we can talk about other things.”

McGregor, 29, plans to rule boxing and MMA with an ‘iron left fist’ after shocking the world against Mayweather.

The boxing spectacle takes place later this month, Aug. 26, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
