In McGregor's last five fights, he's only been more than a -200 favorite once. and he lost that fight.
"Me and Floyd have got to get together and talk the same way him and Manny Pacquiao figured it out".
Revealing his excitement, Mayweather said: "Being surrounded by my family and friends for my birthday weekend reminds me to never take anything for granted in life".
Anyone who doubts the commercial appeal of a Mayweather vs. McGregor bout is fooling themselves.
"I don't think it's just all about money".
"But yeah, I don't see any way of Conor winning it".
"It's a joke for boxing if (Mayweather vs McGregor) happens", he said to Reuters. While very deadly in the octagon, McGregor fight with clipped wings when in boxing due to strikes limited to just punching, Daily Star noted.
For now, it's safe to say that Floyd Mayweather Jr.is one of the greatest pound-for-pound boxers that have ever lived and his birthday celebrations will surely be eventful. "Because (McGregor) throws, he throws hard and he's not afraid to throw". These two fighting [Mayweather and McGregor], like me and Silva fighting in a boxing match, will not diminish the UFC brand. He later blamed the difficulty of making it happen on Silva's UFC contract.
Jones Jr. of course has been on a rather impressive win streak despite nearing 50 years old, going 2-0 over the course of 2016 before then winning the vacant WBF cruiserweight title earlier this year when he TKOd Bobby Gunn.
Recently, Ferguson spoke to ESPN a Los Golpes about what the fans should expect from his upcoming UFC 209 co-main event showdown with Khabib.
Dana White has stated that he has not spoken to Conor McGregor since his explosive interview with Ariel Helwani. At this point it is not clear what 2017 hold for the UFC lightweight champion.
The biggest fight McGregor could compete in remains stepping into the ring with Floyd Mayweather, but a fight with the returning St. Pierre could have a serious financial advantage for UFC.
