Conor McGregor Still Open To Floyd Mayweather Boxing Match

Conor McGregor Still Open To Floyd Mayweather Boxing Match

When Chad Mendes took a fight with McGregor on short notice back at UFC 189 last July, he gassed early and was knocked out in the second round.

"I got a great laugh when someone put my name in for it", said McGregor. I could still fight these guys who are identical but I seek challenges.

When McGregor was reminded that fighters who move up in weight often lose their power punching, he answered, "I have insane power ... my training partners have been welterweights (170-pounders) my whole career so it's not a odd feeling to me".

'It would be nice to make that fight if the fans were interested and wanted to see it'. Diaz isn't expected to win by most experts, but the odds are so much in McGregor's favor that the betting public is backing the underdog. No, I took the (Dennis) Siver fight.

"I'm at the top right now, I guess", Diaz said. Just as UFC president Dana White hoped, the bombastic personalities and fight styles of McGregor and Diaz made the fight must-see, big-money TV, despite no title on the line. I love competition, I love fighting.

New Zealand begins final vote on whether to change its flag
Others criticise the design's aesthetics, with actor Sam Neill saying: "This ugly beach towel is no alternative". Mr Key said Parliament would have to amend the Flags, Emblems and Names Protection Act if the new design won.


"They're like taking him on like, 'Go ahead, keep talking, '" Diaz said.

McGregor insisted that while he would love to see the hastily arranged headline bout of UFC 196 take some time to develop, he isn't confident that his opponent has the resolve to make that happen. But the UFC featherweight champion already has big plans after his UFC 196 fight.

Conor however, feels that he could beat Lawler because he is "too fast". I see a bunch of complainers, whiners. When have I ever waited?

"After (Dustin) Poirier, did I wait?" "I didn't have a fight camp but it's all good". That's what generates interest.

The 27-year-old appeared at an open training session at a packed Jaberwockeez Theatre at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Wednesday afternoon looking trim, toned and ready to face Nate Diaz on Saturday. Who cares about words?
