He has No Respect for Floyd Mayweather
Boxers, wrestlers, martial artists, kickboxers, and every other physical athlete under the sun always think that their sport is the best. They think they are tougher than the other guys. They think the other guys are overpaid, soft and useless. They think that if they fought the other guy, they would surely win, even if it was in his sport.
In this case however, McGregor may be right. McGregor’s beef is with the Floyd Mayweather, the former Welterweight Champion. Mayweather made hundreds of millions of dollars off of a pay-per-view fight with Manny Pacquiao. Mayweather danced around the ring for an hour, throwing a few punches here and there, but only when he had to.
McGregor is convinced that he would drop Mayweather like a bad habit in 30 seconds if Mayweather would just return the call. He has said that he would fight in boxing gloves, so Mayweather would have the advantage, and he still would smoke the former champ. It may never happen, but my money would be on the guy that won a kickboxing match with a torn up knee, not the sleepwalker who cashed everybody’s checks after he put them to sleep with his performance.
