Conor McGregor sued for role at UFC 202 presser

Mayweather vs. McGregor Breaks UK PPV Buys Record

Mayweather vs. McGregor Breaks UK PPV Buys Record

Floyd Mayweather Jr has beaten Conor McGregor after their so-called "superfight" in Las Vegas.

"That's because I wasn't counter-punching and boxing", Mayweather told FightHype.com of McGregor outlanding Pacquiao, Cotto and Mosley with 111 punches. While many in the boxing community dismissed the bout as merely theatrical, McGregor insisted that there may be a future for him in the ring.

In comments that will need to be taken with a heavy pinch of salt, Mayweather Snr. revealed his son had come into the fight completely underdone. But McGregor's camp isn't in favor of a bout against the Ferguson-Lee victor for the Irishman's next fight. He got lucky in the fight with Conor (1st one), and he got the win, but Diaz ain't shit.

Diaz owns a marginal record as a professional fighter but his rivalry with McGregor keeps him in the spotlight.

There were many things that happened during that McGregor-Diaz presser, so it will be interesting if Pegg's insinuations will prosper. No one will mistake Mayweather McGregor for the "rumble in the jungle" but it certainly was worth the price of admission.

McGregor's in demand among his peers in the sport not just because of the lightweight belt he holds, but also because of his ability to draw at the gate, on television and at the betting window. Referee Robert Byrd stopped the fight after noticing McGregor was in danger after a flurry of Mayweather combinations on top of McGregor's already wobbly legs.This fight was billed to be the fight of the century. "When he fought [Nate] Diaz in the rematch, that drew pretty good, equal action on both sides".

He has earned so much money that, particularly with the minimum £78million he is reportedly guaranteed from defeating McGregor, he should never need to fight again.

Just days removed from the biggest fight of his young career, UFC champion Conor McGregor is headed to another battle.

As fight fans know, that presser became infamous when Diaz stormed out and the two began throwing water bottles at each other.

He believes the contact made by the can was level in terms of damage to those inflicted by Diaz during the pair's fight.
