UFC champion responds to Mayweather's octagon fight taunt

Share

As for the manipulated photo, Mayweather put the caption "Certified Killa vs Certified B***h" in it, taunting McGregor and implying that even he as a boxer could defeat MMA fighter McGregor in a UFC match.

As you might know already, Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor happened a year ago and was the second most bought PPV of all time behind Mayweather vs Pacquiao. Now I'm going to be honest, I'm practicing Irish dancing and I'm getting nervous about that.

"In all seriousness, it's a insane world we live in". The fight that could never happen happened. And now this is a fight that can never happen, and it seems to be getting, I don't know, there seems to be something forming there. "I would absolutely love it".

McGregor recently lost to Mayweather in the boxing ring.

He'd clearly be a massive underdog to UFC lightweight champion McGregor, just like "The Notorious" was to him heading into their first match in the boxing ring a year ago (although it wasn't as much as you would have thought), but "Money" is already a sizable dog to a much less touted UFC fighter now as well. Mayweather vs. McGregor would likely be a one-sided beatdown, but fans - and haters - of both fighters would reach for their wallets if it was booked, and in the world of combat sports, if it makes dollars, it makes sense.

"Now, let's be realistic here".

Conor McGregor likes to knock people out, I like to knock people out... and we are two savages.

"In all seriousness, it's a insane world we live in, the fight that could nver happen happened and this is a fight that can never happen and it seems to be getting..." He needs to be in the mount slapping [Mayweather] about a little bit. "So it would be, I think, such a straight, easy fight that we could train realistically for it and then do a competitive MMA fight on the backend of it", Kavanagh said.

"I'm thinking about buying an National Basketball Association team". I know that probably comes across a certain way, but I can only say what I'm thinking, I can only say what I feel.

He captioned the snap: "A real elbow in a real fight".

While speaking with MMA Fighting in a recent interview, UFC Lightweight Dustin Poirier made a very bold prediction regarding his adversary Conor McGregor and his UFC future, by claiming that "The Notorious One" will be stripped off the Lightweight Championship before the upcoming UFC 223 pay-per-view.
