Conor McGregor makes headlines again.
Last week, Conor McGregor sat down for a meeting with Tony Robbins where he discussed his recent events, such as the Floyd Mayweather fight. To no one’s surprise, McGregor said Floyd did not beat him as much as he did outwit him, but should a rematch happen, he would win and would be better prepared this time.
McGregor claimed he was winning the early rounds and only upon Floyd’s shift to a more aggressive strategy, one that he had never adopted in his entire career, did that catch McGregor off guard? He also stated that he was not suffering from the damage Mayweather was dishing out but was instead tired and that he would have caught a second wind to win the fight had the referee let the match continue. He ends by saying that he would win in the rematch.
While McGregor did have more success than many of Floyd’s other opponents, to say he won is a stretch. Mayweather took charge of the match and ended up stopping McGregor in the tenth round, securing his 50th consecutive win.
But Floyd and his staff have never had much incentive to generate money, and with the possibility of a lucrative rematch on the table, Mayweather CEO Leonard Ellerbe reacted to McGregor’s remarks, saying his boss could be happy to give Conor another opportunity.
