A week from now we’re all going to be breathing a sigh of relief that it’s all over. All the endless hype, all the nonsensical analysis from talking heads who know nothing, it will have come to an abrupt end once Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor stepped into the boxing ring, and shown us once and for all what the greatest MMA fighter of our time can do to the greatest boxer of our time.
(Hint: probably not much.)
Which isn’t to say that McGregor doesn’t have great hands. He does… when it comes to an MMA fight. But Mayweather has never had to worry about getting kicked, or getting taken down, he’s only ever had to be concerned with big padded gloves coming at him, so he’s going to be so much better at the Irish superstar at boxing.
Anyway, here’s McGregor’s fight in Cage Wars which earned him a shot in the UFC.
