Conor McGregor Considering Going Full Rocky For Next UFC Fight

"You got fighters in boxing 'oh my god, 33 fights, I got 33 knockouts.' Guess what?" It's probably just a matter of logistics since the Mayweather-McGregor war is scheduled on August 26, 2017, and both fighters are in the middle of their training, not to mention the promotional tour.

"I have a very high fight IQ", he said.

"Nobody knows that squared circle like me", Mayweather told reporters. Then he said the stripper thing - you've (Mayweather) got 50 strippers on your pay roll.

He brushed off the tax debt in comments to reporters on Tuesday at the start of his tour to promote an August 26 boxing match against Irish MMA star Conor McGregor.

Additionally, during an interview with Guillermo of "Jimmy Kimmel Live," McGregor was asked if he could beat Rocky Balboa in "Rocky III". While McGregor faces a steep uphill battle against Mayweather in a boxing-only fight, Mayweather would face an even tougher obstacle in a UFC fight, as, to our knowledge, he's not an expert in any other disciplines. "I don't have to knock 'em out, this is a handsome art and people wanna pay to see it".

The unbeaten American maintains that this will be his final fight, while also shrugging off concerns that such a mismatch will harm his legacy.

Earlier this week, McGregor said that he had already agreed to fight before the end of 2017. "I believe I'll come out of this [Mayweather] fight without a scratch". Why should I take it seriously? It was an eventful fight with the Big Show getting nailed by one of Mayweather's henchmen before the boxer repeatedly bashed the Big Show's head with the chair for the KO win.
