If the Mayweather vs McGregor fight happens then MMA Super Star Conor McGregor will be up again some big odds if he desicides to fight Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match supposedly scheduled from June 10th 2017, but that doesn’t mean you should count him out.
McGregor has showed his fight skills during his career in the UFC but he’d certainly be fighting boxing mastermind going up against Mayweather, who is regarded as one of the greatest boxers in boxing history.
UFC well know commentator Joe Rogan knows that McGregor has skills to implement in aiding him in winning the fight if it happens, especially considering the kind of raw punching power the Irishman possesses.
“That’s what Conor McGregor is. He’s a freak athlete. There’s a guy named Firas Zahabi, who’s one of the best trainers in MMA, Georges St-Pierre’s trainer — he calls it the touch of death,” Rogan described on his latest podcast. “That’s the best way to describe it.
“He just zaps people. It’s extraordinary for sure.”
Like most analysts and experts in boxing and mixed martial arts world, Rogan believes Mayweather will more than likely win the fight, but that doesn’t mean he should go into the fight underestimating Conor McGregor’s ability to tag him with his long arm reach, power and the obvious huge size advantage.
Floyd Mayweather is definitely the better boxer. There’s no doubting that,” Rogan said. “He’s one of the greatest boxers, if not the greatest boxer that’s ever lived. Even though he’s smaller, you’re talking about a completely different level of skill. Mayweather has complete different understanding of the of boxing, but with that being said, Conor McGregor is still a very dangerous fighter.
“Floyd Mayweather is a much better boxer, but Conor McGregor is dangerous as f*** and he has a really deceptive ability to move in and move out. He can close the distance gap very quickly. He can do it in ways where he might freeze you. He might stun you and he might catch you early and he hits with tremendous punching power. If Floyd Mayweather can figure him out and start using his jab and using his movement. Floyd has traditionally had problems with southpaws, but he’s never lost to one.”
