Is this a bit of silly promotion? Of course it is. But I’m assuming the loser’s money goes to charity as it allegedly did the first time around. If it weren’t, Wahlberg would be certifiably insane for picking McGregor in the first place. The Irishman’s odds to win the fight have actually slightly increased, yet he still finds himself as an unbelievable under-dog.
