Conor McGregor trolls Floyd Mayweather ahead of super-fight in August

Conor McGregor trolls Floyd Mayweather ahead of super-fight in August”

"This is a fight that Floyd is taking very, very seriously, because we all do know all it takes in boxing is one shot and he don't have to be a clean shot", Ellerbe said, according to MMAFighting.com. As a bonus, McGregor's caption read: "Call me CJ Watson!" in a biting reference to the former National Basketball Association guard who had a relationship with Josie Harris, the mother of Mayweather's children.

Mayweather's 2015 fight against Manny Pacquiao cost between $90 and $100 to watch on pay-per-view and drew an estimated 4.4 million viewers.

Also, if Mayweather wins against Conor McGregor, he'll be the first boxer to have a ideal 50-0 record.

"THE FIGHT IS ON", McGregor tweeted minutes before Mayweather's post.

Others feel that McGregor is holding the lightweight division hostage, having not defended his title since winning it at UFC 205 in November 2016 and being likely to not defend this year either unless he decides to fight twice in 2017. The fight will be at light middleweight (154lbs) and held in Las Vegas on 26 August. It would be the result the entire world expected, and fans would quickly move on to the next big fight.

"I talked to Conor McGregor this morning", White said.

"Let's just put it this way - all sides involved are pretty happy with their deals!"

"(McGregor) is absolutely 100 per cent positive that he wins this fight, and I stopped doubting Conor McGregor a long time ago", he insisted.

It wins with regard to the number of eyes that will be on McGregor; the UFC and MMA will be in the limelight as it has never been before and may never be again. Whenever Conor hits people, they fall. "I'm like, Man, he better not graze Floyd with one of them shots". "The reason he's such a superstar is this guy will fight anyone, anywhere, at any time".

Mayweather will try to make the 50-th victory in the professional ring. "Really we haven't seen anything in modern history that resembles it, it's impossible to predict how many sales this will do".
