Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather: Dana White defends super fight

"The guy has done wonderful things". He would pick rounds that he was going to finish guys who were legends in the sport and world champions.
"In any boxing match, if a guy throws a roundhouse kick to the head, there's going to be a penalty", Attar said.
"If I had to tell you right here, right now, do I think Conor's coming back this year?"
This could be the biggest spectacle in combat sports history, and McGregor's fellow MMA fighters shared their excitement on social media. Not only will it break the records here in the United States but we think it is going to break the records globally. It is absolutely remarkable that Conor McGregor, in a relatively short amount of time, became the biggest money fight for Floyd Mayweather. It's certainly possible. After all, Mayweather is one of the greatest defensive fighters in boxing history, and he's about to face a man with no pro-boxing bouts under his belt. "Shut up. Step up and fight like Conor McGregor fights".
"Floyd's 40 and hasn't fought in nearly (two) years", White said. Floyd is 40. Floyd always had problems with southpaws, Conor is a southpaw and Conor hits hard. McGregor boxed when he was younger but is largely expected to be overpowered come August.
"I just feel that these are two separate sports and you have McGregor who is the best at what he does, and you have Mayweather who is the best at what he does". Conor believes it, I believe it and Ireland believes it. "So I think he has to really keep his end strong for this fight".
For UFC star McGregor in particular, the earnings, which could top $50 million for him and nine figures for Mayweather, will be unlike anything he has sampled in mixed martial arts.
While terms are still unknown, it's been reported that Mayweather would get the larger purse, potentially as high as $100 million, according to White, likely the motivation in luring him out of retirement and risking his flawless 49-0 career record. No, but the kid, first of all, is a southpaw and people can argue one way or the other but Floyd, traditionally, if you want to say there's ever been a kink in the armor with that kid, it's with southpaws.
