UFC star Conor McGregor is a very confident man. He believes that August 26 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas will be the night he shocks the world. McGregor is looking to become the first man to beat Floyd Mayweather(49-0, 26 KOs). Can he do it? I doubt it, but anything is possible.
Here is what McGregor said on Tuesday during Grand Arrivals in Las Vegas:
“Floyd can talk about whatever he wants to talk about. He can talk any kind of trash he wants, because he’s talking to the new God of boxing, McGregor said. “I like the move from five to three minute rounds. I feel like I’ve built a solid engine that is going to last me through the rest of my career and help me in the fight. We’ve put in the work. I’ve fought many 12-rounders.
“The Irish are rolling in and whenever we roll in, we take over. It was amazing to see all the Irish fans out today. It’s going to be a great spectacle.
“If people are overlooking my size, power and youth, they shouldn’t be. I’m very confident in those attributes. I believe I’ll knock him out early.
“If you look at the way I fight, I am a fast starter. I come out and bang people right away. With eight ounce gloves, I don’t see him lasting more than one or two rounds.
“I am my own man and I feel I am superior to Floyd. When it comes to Saturday night, he will not be prepared for me.
“I cannot wait to get in the on Saturday night and perform in front of my fans and take my place at the top of this sport.”
