The Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor show just added more star power to the festivities.

Pop music sensation Demi Lovato will perform the national anthem ahead of the main event of Mayweather-McGregor on Saturday at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev.

This will be Lovato’s first time singing the anthem at a boxing match, though she is no stranger to combat sports events. The 25-year-old singer is a noted MMA fan and she’s been spotted attending UFC and Bellator shows. She’s also posted videos on social media of her own martial arts training in the past:

Thank you @officialdaniellemartin for letting me kick your butt

One of Lovato’s recent hits is titled “Sorry Not Sorry”, which is fitting given McGregor’s unapologetic approach to his rivals and critics.
