Conor McGregor is prohibited from kicking or elbowing his rival Floyd Mayweather in a highly anticipated boxing match on Aug. 26.

Ultimate Fighting Championship star McGregor won’t be able to “go rogue” against Mr. Mayweather. “There is no way that will happen. That is absolutely in the contract, No.1,” UFC President Dana White said told a news conference on Wednesday.

The lucrative match, scheduled in the ring at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena, is expected to be longer and more entertaining than a match between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao back in 2015.
