Rogan Feels Confident That McGregor Will Shock Mayweather

CONOR MCGREGOR’s chances of beating Floyd Mayweather have been written off by combat sports fans.

Mayweather and McGregor, two of the biggest names in the sporting world, will face each other in a multi-million-pound boxing match on August 26.

The most talked about fight on the planet, which has divided opinion in the boxing world, takes place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.


McGregor, the first fighter in UFC history to hold two titles simultaneously, is confident he can shock the world and hand 40-year-old Mayweather his first professional loss, despite having never boxed professionally.

Many of the Irishman’s critics, as well as some of his fans, have dismissed his chances of making good on his promise, claiming he faces a nigh-on impossible task to land a noteworthy punch on the elusive Mayweather.

UFC commentator Joe Rogan agrees with that notion but is refusing to rule out The Notorious' chances of coming out of 'The Billion Dollar Fight' victorious.

"(Mayweather) is just a wizard when it comes to boxing, the thing is Conor's a way bigger guy, he's younger, he's way stronger," he said during a recent instalment of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast.

"I mean physically stronger, not just in terms of punching power, he's way stronger with punching power but he's also stronger physically, if he gets a hold of Floyd and starts manipulating him.

"He (McGregor) can cover distance very quickly, and he can do so in a weird way.

"He can do so in a way where he might stun you. He might stun you, and he might catch you early, and he hits really f***ing hard."

The title of the article has no relation with what I actually read regarding the Rogan quotes. Actually, Rogan is not crazy about what he said. We know what Conor is capable of. The only difference is, will he capitalize…

Something about Honda Housey being a one in a life time fighter and throwing crisp clean punches that are not Leonard Garica fast ball wingers. Joe Hogan is [email protected] level delusional. You never go full retard. Did I forget to…

You know, I see Joe at the Comedy Store sometimes in LA and he's never this stupid. He's saving a$$. He knows coming from a kickboxing background what a 0-0 boxer brings to a 49-0 boxer. Little disappointed. Rather him…
