CONOR MCGREGOR will come out of his fight with Floyd Mayweather victorious, according to his striking coach Owen Roddy.

McGregor, the reigning UFC lightweight champion, takes on 'Money' Mayweather in a multi-million dollar boxing match in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The contest, which will be McGregor's first professional boxing match, will take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, 'The Fight Capital of the World'.

Throughout the long build-up to 'The Billion Dollar Fight', McGregor, the first fighter in UFC history to hold two simultaneously, repeatedly vowed to shock the world and hand Mayweather his first loss as a professional.

Many in the combat sports world have ruled out McGregor making good on his promise, claiming he faces an almighty task to come close to landing a single shot on Mayweather.

Roddy admits 'The Notorious' faces a difficult challenge to defeat the most elusive boxer of all time but is certain Ireland's first UFC belt holder will shock the world on August 26.

“I have no doubt in my mind he’s gonna do it,” Owen Roddy told Ariel Helwani on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour. “I think it's gonna be one of the most insane nights ever.”

McGregor, 29, has won 18 of his 24 professional MMA fights by KO or TKO, and Roddy is predicting his fellow Irishman to add another stoppage victory to his resume when he fights Mayweather.

"I think he’s gonna put him away,” he added. “I think he’s gonna KO him. I think it’ll take a couple of rounds. And I know my phone is about to explode, I’m sure.

"I think it’ll take a couple of rounds. And I know my phone is about to explode, I’m sure.

"But look, Conor does these things. He does these exceptional things all the time.

"If he says he’s gonna go in and knock him out, I think he’s gonna go in and knock him out.”

Conor's only chance of a knockout is if Mayweather falls asleep because of boredom of breaks out in fits of laughter after tatooing Conor all night at will

[QUOTE=harwri008;17970591][B]I wish all of Mayweather's prior opponents were this confident.[/B] I think this all a delusional fantasy by Team McGregor. He would have to catch Mayweather flush, and hard enough him to concuss him. We've seen Mayweather buzzed before. Each…
