However; you cannot deny the rumor of a Mcgregor/Mayweather that has gracefully been spreaded faster then herpes during spring break all from a non-reputable tabloid news outlet has literally broke the internet for the last week.
It has not been shot down from Conor Mcgregor....
It has not been shot down from Floyd Mayweather Sr.....
And now, Joe Rogan looks to chime in on the fun and add his two cents to further the speculation.
“If Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather fight in MMA, Conor McGregor will f*** him up,” Rogan said. “He will f*** him up. Floyd will get the s*** kicked out of him. He will kick his body senseless. He will kick his legs. Floyd will be debilitated inside of one round, 100 per cent. And if Conor decides to take him to the ground, I guarantee you ... Floyd Mayweather cannot stop him from taking him to the ground. And if Conor gets him to the ground, he’s going to mount him and cave his f***ing face in, or choke him, or break his arm, or do whatever he wants to do.
“But, in a boxing match, I can’t imagine a world where Floyd Mayweather doesn’t f*** (McGregor) up. I think Floyd Mayweather is arguably the greatest boxer of all time. If you look at his accomplishments, who he’s been able to beat, how he shuts everyone’s offence down ...
“He’s just so much better. And if people don’t know, if you think you’re really good and then you get in there and box a guy like that, he will f***ing expose the s*** out of you. He will expose the s*** out of you. It’s a different animal, man.
“But I mean, who knows man? One of the things we know about Conor is he has a ridiculous belief in himself and he has unbelievable power. One of the things we know about Floyd is he’s 39. So when a guy turns 39, you never know. For every guy like Bernard Hopkins, there’s a bunch of guys who the wheels just fall off and all of a sudden they can’t take a punch anymore and they can’t fight anymore, they don’t move good anymore. But I can’t imagine a world where he’s not light years past Conor with boxing skill.”
“The only thing that makes me think Conor can survive is he’s a super dangerous puncher,” Rogan added. “Maybe if Conor went straight into boxing, he could have been a world-class boxer, he could have been a real Ricky Hatton-type challenger. Entirely possible. But even Ricky Hatton got f***ed up by Mayweather, man. When Ricky Hatton was Ricky Hatton. When he was in his prime.”
This is the point of the conversation where Mr. Rogan makes a fairly good point:
“You might say, look the amount of money that you can make with the Mayweather fight is off the charts. Off the charts. You’re talking about a three million pay-per-view buy or something crazy. So you do that, you move that up, you take that chance, and he gets boxed up by Mayweather and maybe he survives. If he survives and loses a f***ing decision and he goes back and he says ‘All respect to Mayweather. Back to MMA. I just didn’t understand his hands. It’s a learning experience.’ and he has this great press conference. If he can survive, he’s not diminished too much. And Mayweather’s not a murderous puncher. He’s not a Canelo Alvarez or Gennady Golovkin. Golovkin is a bad fight for him. Someone like that is a bad fight for him, a murderous puncher, because most likely they’re gonna take him out. But Mayweather, it’s very possible he is gonna get to the decision. If I was in his corner I would say, this can be done.”
This is the craziest rumor to ever hit combat sports, and from the looks of how the participating people who have the power to shoot down such a bold claim are behaving, it looks like this rumor isn't stopping anytime soon.
