Looks like McGregor and Mayweather will fight again. By strange rules
“In the Octagon, I will do with it what I want. But if he really comes to MMA, then I respect him. I said I would fight with him in boxing, and did. Now it's his turn. ”
In March, Mayweather confirmed for the first time that he was preparing to debut in MMA. Floyd appreciated his struggle and said how much time he needed to prepare.
“We corresponded with Woodley (UFC champion - Sports.ru), and decided that we would soon get down to work. Perhaps I need not much time - three months. Even if it takes me 6-8 months, the most important thing is to properly prepare. I know how to fight. My skills in this regard are not so bad - seven-points on a ten-point system. I think you can raise to nine. And my boxing is all one hundred on a ten-point scale. Kickboxing? Approximately foursome. Something needs to be done. ”
After Mayweather’s Las Vegas casinos, Westgate started taking bets on Conor and Floyd's MMA fight.The Irishman opened the favorite: his victory was given a meager odds of 1.1, for Mayweather's victory - 7.5. But these bets were taken exactly on the fight by the rules of MMA, and not on some kind of hybrid sport.
Floyd planned to play in the featherweight category (up to 66 kg), but in the end the fight could go easy - the Conor weight advantage would be. But the special rules will cut the Irish arsenal: in fact it will be the same box, only in the octagon.
After the fight with Floyd, MacGregor said: “The next fight will be real. What is a real fight? Fight in MMA.
It doesn’t seem to give a real fight to Conor - the money for Mayweather’s performance is more important.
