Could This Have Been Predicted?
In the lead up to the fight, McGregor was all trash talk saying things to Mayweather such as “this old man is out” and “I’m in another league compared to Mayweather.”
In the last conference before the fight, McGregor looked nervous, while it was clear to see Mayweather was in total control.
Perhaps it was because it was Mayweather’s realm, and McGregor was out of place being from an MMA background.
Either way, it was Mayweather who was in complete control before the fight – maybe this had something to do with his sponsors? He’s not called ‘Money Mayweather‘ for no reason… right??
Ultimately, the UFC champion couldn’t beat the odds and win against the best defensive boxer of all-time.
