The Vegas arena for the Floyd Mayweather and Conor Mcgregor mega fight is unavailable, as the August 26 date has been booked for another event.

The venue for the fight, T-Mobile Arena, has already been booked for that date, and now none other than Ice Cube must be made whole if Mayweather and McGregor want to square off there.

After weeks of negotiating and trash talking between Mayweather and McGregor, terms for the bout were finally agreed upon last week. Fans were actually tipped to that announcement by earlier reports that Mayweather’s promotional company had gotten the go-ahead from Nevada authorities to stage a major boxing match in Las Vegas on Aug. 26.

But, The BIG3, the rapper/actor’s three-on-three basketball league which debuts Sunday, has already booked that arena for its championship game, to be held Aug. 26. The league even tweeted out a photo of the building Friday, and it noted that tickets were already available.

However, Ice Cube is willing to be pragmatic about things, and he said Monday that he could step aside for Mayweather-McGregor — as long as he came away “happy” from those negotiations. TMZ Sports reported Saturday that the BIG3 event may be moved to the nearby MGM Grand Garden Arena.

When asked on FS1’s “Undisputed” (via Fox Sports) if a financial arrangement between the BIG3 and the fight promoters could be reached, Ice Cube said, “Of course,” adding, “If they do what they’re supposed to do and make us happy, yeah, we’ll move.”
