McGregor takes subtle approach to trolling Mayweather

U.S. television network Showtime holds the broadcast rights to the PPV fight and so McGregor will fight under a separate promotion form the UFC, meaning he will not be beholden to the UFC's exclusive apparel deal with the brand, which sees all its athletes wear Reebok apparel during competition. "And in my opinion, that's going to yield a different result". "He'll drop the hands and Floyd will beat him up so badly, they'll stop the fight". For me being from South Africa, in America, I needed a way to get my name out over here.

However, there have been many times where the "Notorious" has been told he could not do something - dethroning Jose Aldo, defeating Nate Diaz and becoming a two-weight world champion are just some examples. "I think he's gonna KO him".

Speculation persists that the August 26 fight between Miguel Cotto and Yoshihiro Kamegai in California could be rescheduled to avoid a clash with Mayweather-McGregor. I think it's going to be a very entertaining fight.

His boxing licence was granted by the California State Athletic Commission in December, allowing him to box in the U.S. state.

"I love Bruce Lee and the other disciplines and when he fought against other fighters, you wanted to see the differences, so I can see the appeal", Lewis said. "And I know my phone is about to explode, I'm sure".

"I don't really want to get into details on what we're looking to do", he explained.

Furthermore, under boxing rules, McGregor would likely lose by immediate disqualification if he kicked Mayweather.

On how he thinks the fight will go: "Whatever Conor has learned in boxing over the a year ago, the moment Mayweather starts tagging him, he is going forget all of that, and Floyd will make him pay".

"Floyd is going to hit him and Floyd is going to catch him over and over and over". McGregor will be competing in his first sanctioned boxing match against a boxer widely regarded as the best of his era, and arguably the sport's greatest-ever defensive fighter. "Mayweather will just keep punishing him and then put Conor on his back".
