JNPO: Nine months of Mayweather vs. McGregor

Like it or not, it's finally here: Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather. All the talk, all the posturing, all the money: it all comes down to tonight over (maybe) 12 rounds.

To help commemorate this massive event, yours truly reviewed past interviews to get insight into how we arrived to this very day, giving us an interesting timeline and expert opinions.

We begin with ESPN's Brett Okamoto in December when McGregor first got his license. We then move to when the fight was announced with insight from Yahoo's Kevin Iole and Bleacher Report's Patrick Wyman

From there, we move to Newsday's Mark LaMonica who was in attendance at the ill-fated Brooklyn media tour stop and then to The Guardian's Josh Gross on the comparisions made between this fight and Inoki vs. Ali. 

We wrap with two recent chats with MMA Fighting's Esther Lin on her observations from the tour and Sherdog's Jack Encarnacao on final thoughts as we get to Saturday.

Your unofficial, but truly amazing, Mayweather vs. McGregor pre-show is here:
