McGregor: Next Time, Mayweather's Head Goes Into The Bleachers

UFC superstar Conor McGregor is still hoping to get his hands on Floyd Mayweather in a rematch.

The two fighters collided in a major cross-sport boxing match back in 2017, with Mayweather stopping McGregor in the tenth round at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Afterwards, McGregor blamed his loss on a lack of preparation.

He claimed Mayweather, who usually fights defense, switched up his entire style and fought overly offense.

After their bout, Mayweather announced his retirement from the sport.

Their has a major financial success, with 4.3 million pay-per-view purchases - the second highest buyrate in history. And the event had a live gate of over $50 million.

McGregor fully expects Mayweather to return to the ring, because he believes the unbeaten boxer spends way too much money.

“He gets his money and then it comes right back down, he must step back into the ring so I’ll be here ready for him. I’ll be here ready and confident," McGregor stated during a question and answer session in Chicago.

“Floyd fought great. Usually he fights defensive against the ropes. Against me, he changed it up. The boxing world had not seen Floyd compete like that, that Mexican style, hands up over his eyebrows, marching forward. In my preparation when I was sparring, all my sparring partners were on the back foot, with the shoulder roll against the ropes, the way he usually would fight.

“When he came and switched that up, I wasn’t prepared. His experience showed through and he got the win. You can’t do nothing but respect that because that takes 50 pro fights to gain that experience and be able to switch through the gears like that. I prepared for the style he originally came out with, and I was whooping his ass when he came out that way because I was prepared for it. When he switched up to a different style I wasn’t prepared for, he ended up getting the win, so much respect.

“Next camp, and I do believe it should happen, I mean, why not? Why not? If I have sparring partners in my camp that march forward, trust me when I tell you, I’ll send his head into the bleachers.”

This would be a better alternative than the Pacquiao fight for Floyd. If he's serious, then Floyd would take this fight in a heartbeat.

[QUOTE=spenz;19610919]The only rematch Mcgregor should pursue is Khabib. That guy took everything away from him. He is not the same Mcgregor as long as Khabib has his soul.[/QUOTE] exactly. I only wish a real active boxer could get his hands…

No Thanks.. Floyd minions will buy it though. Floyds disciples will give up their lunch money to see Floyd fight Rhonda Rousey..

So McGregor has quit any notion of being the best in his sport and needs Floyd to bail him out again.
