McGregor was TKO’d in the tenth round after a spirited showing in the first few frames. In fact, McGregor took the first two to three rounds, landing a nasty counter lead uppercut in the first.

For an 0-0 professional boxer going against an undefeated legend in the sport, Team SBG has plenty to be proud of in how their teammate acquitted himself in the ring when he usually does his work in the octagon.

How do you feel about McGregor’s performance against Mayweather on Saturday night?

The most talked about topic over the last year has been the crossover fight that will see boxing legend Floyd Mayweather taking on UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor. Now, the date is set (August 26th) and everyone can look forward to it.

The fight, which both has haters and supporters, is currently being projected to break the pay-per-view record for sales, surpassing Mayweather’s fight with Manny Pacquiao which pulled in an estimated 4.4 million buys. It won’t be an easy task, but a task that is doable. Although this will be a mega payday for McGregor, there is some concern about his future in the UFC.

The discussion has been based in part on previous statements by McGregor as well as pure speculation, that McGregor will walk away from the fight game after this boxing match. If he does, then the UFC is going to hurt big time as McGregor is their top draw. According to UFC President Dana White, he isn’t worried about it because he’s “pretty confident” McGregor will return to defend his title later this year.

McGregor’s good friend and training partner, Dillon Danis, recently did an interview with TMZ Sports and during the interview, he stated that he thinks that McGregor will have plenty of options after August. He also thinks that McGregor won’t be retiring from MMA because the sport is his passion.

“He can do what he wants. He’s the one that they’re all trying to get a fight with, in boxing and in MMA. So he has his options. MMA is his passion so I would think he’d go back to that but he has the option. . . At the end of the day, we’re all competitors. But whatever he wants to do, he has options.”

Danis, who recently signed a deal with Bellator MMA, is a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt and former world champion at the brown belt level. However, his skills won’t help McGregor for this training camp as he has no striking experience. Danis is confident not only in McGregor’s ability to compete with a great boxer but to dominate him.

“I don’t think he’ll hang with him, I think he knocks [Mayweather] out. 100 percent. I believe in him, Danis said (transcript courtesy of MMA Fighting). I think it [will be] a little more dragged out [than the Jose Aldo first-round knockout]. Mayweather’s a little bit better at avoiding the shots, so I think maybe under six [rounds].”

Quote: Conor McGregor Will 100-Percent KO Floyd Mayweather

After months and months of speculation, it was finally announced last week that former pound-for-pound king and former five division world champion Floyd “Money” Mayweather would be coming out of retirement to take on reigning UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor on August 26, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The bout will be 12 rounds and […]

After months and months of speculation, it was finally announced last week that former pound-for-pound king and former five division world champion Floyd “Money” Mayweather would be coming out of retirement to take on reigning UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor on August 26, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The bout will be 12 rounds and it will be contested at 154 pounds.

In the Octagon, McGregor is most known for his striking, and to be more specific, the power in which he possesses in his hands. Due to the fact that he has never competed in a professional boxing match, however, many are giving McGregor a slim chance against Mayweather, a man many consider to be the best boxer of his generation. In fact, some have argued that McGregor will have difficulty even landing on “Money”, a defensive genius.

One man, however, is convinced that the Irishman will knockout Mayweather. Recently speaking on the topic, Brazilian jiu-jitsu ace and McGregor teammate Dillon Danis, who has quickly become one of the most outspoken voices in combat sports, said that McGregor will ‘100-percent’ finish Mayweather:

“I don’t think he’ll hang with him, I think he will knock him out, 100-percent. It will be a bit more dragged out (than one round), Mayweather is a bit more better at avoiding the shots (than Jose Aldo), so I think maybe under six,” Danis told TMZ Sports.

This is certainly a bold claim, as Mayweather possesses a perfect 49-0 professional record. Not only has he never been defeated or knocked out, but “Money” has never been knocked down, nor has he ever seriously been hurt inside the squared circle, so it’d be hard to imagine a fighter making his professional debut knocking him out.

Anything can happen in a fight, however, and McGregor, as always, is highly confident in his chances. The “Notorious” one hasn’t competed since last November when he brutally knocked out Eddie Alvarez in the main event of UFC 205 from the famed Madison Square Garden in New York City to become the promotion’s lightweight champion. Since then, he has been out of action due to the birth of his first child, but he has also spent much of his time over the last few months campaigning for this fight against Mayweather.

“Money”, on the other hand, hasn’t stepped into the ring since Sept. 2015 when he scored a dominant one-sided decision victory over Andre Berto. He announced his retirement after the bout, but made it clear earlier this year that he would be willing to come out of retirement, but only to fight McGregor.

What do you make of Danis’ comments?
