Two Lads Mimicking Conor McGregor On Street, And Conor McGregor Himself Rolls Up
Here we are in Dublin, Ireland, where Conor McGregor is somewhat revered, one might say. We're outside of a pub on Sunday night, where two guys are doing their best McGregor moves in a mock fight.
Then suddenly, a van pulls up ... and Conor McGregor himself is inside.
There's no bigger draw in MMA right now than McGregor, who's been making noise since May of a superfight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. It would be lucrative for sure, and that's what the two fighters are all about. In fact, McGregor has been issued a boxing licence in California, claiming that it's for a Mayweather bout. Mayweather says he is also game for this.
Of course it would be under boxing rules, because there's no way Mayweather would step into a UFC ring with anyone, let alone an insane brawler like McGregor. Mayweather likes his lotions, bath salts and comfy pillows -- MMA is not for him.
On the flip side, McGregor is a boxer in Mayweather's class like I'm a Certified Public Accountant -- against an expert, we'd both be utterly destroyed. While such a fight would be good for UFC in the long run, publicity-wise, it would be a huge mistake for McGregor.
But it's fun to talk about, so go ahead and keep talking, folks. It buoys both sports.
