UFC lightweight champion Conor Mcgregor said he would destroy the Floyd Mayweather if he gets a rematch with him.
“The Notorious” lost his record-breaking boxing bout in the tenth round against legendary Floyd Mayweather in August.
Since then he took a much needed time off from sports, partying in Ibiza and creates ‘Mac Land’ for son’s christening. Currently, he’s testing the waters for a UFC return.
Recently he took part in Q&A evening in Glasgow, hosted by Kong Events & Goldstar Promotions.
During the event, Mcgregor challenges Mayweather for a cage fight, calls his sparring partner Paulie Malignaggi “a rat of a thing.” as well mentioned other opponents for his UFC comeback, Diaz trilogy fight and unification bout with Newly Interim Tony Ferguson.
Mcgregor stated, he is confident if he gets a chance, I will get that win:
“What sickens me is that the little motherf***** is retired now. If I had another go with him, under boxing rules, I’d get that win. He had to change his whole approach. With those lessons I learned, with another go around, I’d get it. He’s 50-0 and getting on, I’m not calling him out. I’ll sit back. We’ll see how he gets on with this round of money. Maybe I’ll get another call. Originally he was saying an MMA bout next. That’s what he said before the fight.
He did say an MMA fight. So if he wants to, lets f****** do it. There’s not a hope in hell… I’d like to see him come over to our side and have a knock. I earned their respect and put myself out there. Style over to my side and earn our respect now.”
Not only Mayweather, but he wants to settle unfinished business with former sparring partner Paulie Malignaggi.
“Paulie is talking enough s***, he’s stuck for money, and looking for a fight,” McGregor said. “He’s talking about b****, bringing b****, well bring your b**** and fight in a real fight. That’s where we’re at… I’d like one of them to come over on our side.
He’s a f****** rat of a thing. If he wants, look, f***… I’ve got the UFC title to defend. But if that little fool is stuck for money, maybe we could get him in for an MMA bout.”
Mcgregor also mentioned other potential opponents for UFC comeback. Newly Interim champion Tony Ferguson who scored the victory in the third round submission against Kevin Lee on October 7. Even UFC president Dana White showed his interest for super fight to unify the lightweight championships.
Watch the full interview:
“The Notorious” also interested in that match as it “could legitimise” his lightweight belt. A belt which he yet has to defend won in a show-stopping fashion against Eddie Alvarez in 2016.
Alternatively, Coach John Kavanagh wants to see Diaz trilogy fight for Conor. White shoot down the rumors said he is not looking to book their fight.
