McGregor Blasts Mayweather Fight As 'The Rules Of A Circus'

"He knew, like everyone at the gym said, that it would be very hard (for McGregor to win) - very, very hard". It sells fights, it sells the Conor McGregor brand, and it attracts people to the sport.

He believed it would have been a closer fight had he prepared a little differently, after losing via technical knockout in the 10th round. She likened the mismatch to "having a dance partner who's on a different rhythm to you", with the thought being that this could throw off Mayweather. He had won every round from the fourth on, on all cards. Mayweather was closed up, just waiting for the time to pounce.

McGregor entered the bout, as one of mixed martial arts fastest rising stars, becoming the Ultimate Fighting Championship's first ever double champion.

He also feels that though the Conor-Floyd fight was a "setup", impeccable marketing has helped MMA grow more - "Conor, in just a matter of about five years in MMA, managed to secure a $100 million fight against Floyd - this is no joke".

As I was driving home from Columbus last Saturday I received a phone call from my wife. "What are you doing right now, you should be selling this fight with Conor".

Richard Perez, Diaz' boxing coach, has named the American's price to fight McGregor. He has a flawless 50-0 (27 KOs) record over a career of more than 20 years.

The Grand Rapids, Mich., native has a worthy claim to GOAT - Greatest of All Time. White was led out by his bodyguard out via the tunnel near Studio 6. That totaled more than $410 million in domestic revenue. On Monday's edition of The MMA Hour, however, Malignaggi made it clear that a boxing match is all he's interested in and that he has no intention of stepping into the octagon to face McGregor under MMA rules. So, it didn't surprise me that Mayweather was kinda letting McGregor do his thing. Shields went on to say she felt the only chance McGregor had of winning was if "he lands a lucky punch in the first two rounds".

By the fourth round, the momentum switched.

Can Ind recover from late blows on day 1?
They were all out for 28.2 overs against Pakistan in Kandy in 1994 and in 34.2 overs against Australia in Pallekele a year ago . Now Sri-Lanka is set to take the reins to chase down a challenging score target as the second innings of the match begins.

Like Mayweather, McGregor enjoys flaunting the luxury he now finds himself in.

By the ninth round, Mayweather clearly had become the hunter and McGregor the game.

To his credit, McGregor wasn't cut and never went down or seemed to stagger. "It's not like he was out on his feet or about to get knocked out, or something like that". Mayweather, for once in his life, looked sluggish, out of focus, out of shape and dangerously unmotivated for most of the bout.

Is he telling all?

McGregor said that fighting for 30 minutes had been a challenge as MMA fights last a maximum of 25 minutes. The current record is reportedly 4.6m for Mayweather vs. Pacquaio in 2014 and that could yet be left in the shade.

The failed transaction was reported by ESPN's David Purdum.

"I'm like 'yo Nate, what about that fight, you're next, biggest fight in UFC history brother". A characteristic that justifies the nickname "Money".
