Conor McGregor cannot be accused of lacking self-confidence, not even after he got smacked real badly by Nate Diaz at UFC 196. Now McGregor says Floyd Mayweather is out looking for money to make plans of their match to come to fruition.
He believes Floyd Mayweather is now in talks with Showtime, and that their fight is still possible as long as the money is right.
According to Boxing Scene, McGregor said, “If you want to fight me we can fight. If you need a safety net of rules, we can do that as long as you have my money. I don’t need no rules to protect me. That’s my thoughts on all that. Why dominate in one world when you can dominate two?”
Conor McGregor’s behavior recently gives one an impression that he’s lining up all comers, and he’s willing to take all of them down one by one. That doesn’t only mean fighting and eliminating his competition in the UFC or in boxing, but even slamming the WWE by calling them messed up p*ssies.
Promoting his fight is one thing, but talking trash to practically anyone not named Conor McGregor is another.
The Irishman responded to Ric Flair for calling him out for copying his gimmick.
According to a report by MMA Fighting McGregor said, “This ain’t no gimmick. This is the real sh*t. I’ve gotta get in and fight a man for real. With no script, with no nothing. He was talking about bringing some other wrestler guys out to challenge me. Come bring it, then.
“This is the real shit over here. You know you want to come over, we can fight no problem. A few of them are talking about the street and all. If they want to do that, come at me and see what happens.”
Floyd Mayweather has not made any comments regarding McGregor’s statement, but nobody believes an inkling about the UFC fighter’s chances of beating him in boxing.
In fact, there’s a real good chance Nate Diaz will beat him again at UFC 202.
Conor McGregor is said to have spent an extravagant amount of around $300k for his training against Diaz, but says he’s not worried about the money.
It looks like his mouthing is working wonders for him and that he’ll probably be fighting for a long time with all the enemies he’s making in the UFC, boxing and WWE, with probably more to come.
