UFC’s Conor McGregor is training for a first time cross promotion fight between himself and undefeated Floyd Mayweather. Talks are progressing, but how fast.

The Nevada Athletic Commission has an agenda item on its Wednesday meeting calendar to consider a request by Mayweather Promotions for an Aug. 26 fight date at MGM Grand, which ignited talk that a Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Conor McGregor fight is imminent.

But just as news of the request was spreading, the executive director of the commission said Mayweather Promotions had verbally retracted the date request.

A fight could then be pushed to November.
