It seems like every angle of the big August 26th boxing match between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather Jr. is being covered, so why not talk about the entrance gear? Both McGregor and Mayweather like fancy (or weird, depending on who you ask) clothes, and according to a recent Instagram post by McGregor, he’ll have a pretty snazzy boxing robe to wear to the ring when he comes out for the fight:

Thank you @donatella_versace for this amazing gift this morning

“Thank you @donatella_versace for this amazing gift this morning.”

McGregor, who is making his first foray into boxing for this matchup, conducted an open workout today to promote the fight after Mayweather did something similar yesterday.

The UFC lightweight champion is no stranger to wearing unique attire for this event already, sporting a stylish “f—k you” suit (which you can actually buy for yourself) early in the press tour and donning some other really odd stuff for later press tour dates.

Mayweather and McGregor will tangle in a 12-round, 154-pound bout on August 26th in the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
