UFC president Dana White compared Mcgregor to the late legendary former heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali when it came to the mental game.
Coming out of retirement, he obviously invested a lot of time in preparing his body for the match, even if he publicly scoffs at McGregor’s skills and predicted a knockout.
Most boxing experts give Mayweather nearly every advantage and expect him to thrash McGregor and win the fight by a wide margin.
He’d injured his hand earlier in the bout and touched the canvas with his glove as the clock wound down in order to take the count and help more time to elapse.
If there is one prediction you can book confidently, it’s that win or lose, Conor Mcgregor won’t wilt under the bright lights in Las Vegas.
