Już 26 sierpnia w Las Vegas w T-Mobile Arenie, Conor McGregor mistrz UFC zmierzy się, na zasadach bokserskich, z niepokonanym Floydem Mayweatherem.
„McGregor is going to get killed boxing. I got mad because I thought they were going to use MMA rules against boxing because that’s what it’s all about: Can the boxer beat the MMA guy? McConor [sic] put his dumba*** in a position where he’s gonna get knocked out because this guy’s been doing this all his life since he was a baby. McConor [sic] can’t kick and grab and stuff so he won’t stand much of a chance.”
