You and I follow MMA, so we know how good Conor McGregor is in the cage. He’s damn good. One of the best. But we’re not idiots – we know that when McGregor faces Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match in August, the Irishman will be taking on the world’s best boxer in boxing, not MMA, and McGregor is in for some serious hurting.
But this impending fight has a ridiculous amount of mainstream appeal, and there are people out there who don’t know combat sports like we do.
Take for instance the cat who just plunked down an unhealthy amount of change on McGregor winning. Do you think this guy just threw his money away?
Welcome to the summer of May/Mac. The crazies are out.
A bettor in Nevada placed $150,000 today on Conor McGregor to beat Floyd at a @WilliamHillUS sports book. If Conor wins, he’ll net $662,500.
