Conor McGregor works out in throwback Warriors J-Rich jersey

Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather are set to square off in the ring on Aug. 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas for one of the biggest fights of all time.

To get ready for one of the most hyped up sporting events in years, McGregor needed a little motivation from the 'We Believe' Warriors to come out victorious in an upset.

In a YouTube video showing the highlights of McGregor during his world tour promoting the fight with Mayweather, McGregor rocked a throwback Jason Richardson Warriors jersey. You can see McGregor in the jersey at the 45-seconds mark.

Richardson averaged 18.3 points and 5.4 rebounds over six seasons with the Warriors. 

McGregor (21-3 in the UFC) is looking to give Mayweather (49-0) the first loss of his career.

Report: Lakers have shown interest in former Warriors guard

Report: Lakers have shown interest in former Warriors guard

Ian Clark is looking for his next basketball home.

And the Lakers have shown interest in the free agent guard, according to The Los Angeles Times' Brad Turner.

Over 77 regular season games with the Warriors last season, Clark averaged 6.8 points while shooting just under 49 percent from the field and over 37 percent from deep.

In 16 playoff games (he did not play in Game 5 of the NBA Finals), he averaged 6.8 points on 50.6 percent shooting overall, and 36 percent from 3-point territory.

Last week, he was asked if he would be back with the Warriors in 2017-18.

"It's not looking like it," Clark said while in Memphis. "Going through that situation right now. As much as I want to stay, it's a business. But we'll see. Anything could happen."

The Warriors do have an open roster spot, but it's quite possible they enter training camp and/or the season with just 14 players under contract.

Golden State can only offer Clark the minimum of $1,577,230.

The Lakers could give Clark up to $4.3 million -- the room mid-level exception.
