The consensus is that Floyd Mayweather will move his record to 50-0 when he boxes Conor McGregor next month, but Demetrious Johnson believes his fellow UFC champ will prevail August 26th. "I don't have to knock 'em out, this is a attractive art and people wanna pay to see it". I'm not saying the fighters are on steroids, I'm saying the method of production and hype is juiced up beyond belief. You know what I mean, in a insane place like Russian Federation.
After the constant tension and aggression between him and Conor McGregor on their promotional tour, Floyd Mayweather is back in friendly territory. After reading all of the predictions and seeing all the online bs that's going on and getting a glimpse of their first press conference, I think McGregor is the real deal. While Mayweather is now 40-years-old and McGregor is relatively young at 28, only a handful of boxers have come close to defeating Mayweather.
"Obviously there's a lot of UFC fans and McGregor fans". I've been here before, but he's tough. McGregor wanted this fight.

The Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao fight took place on May 2, 2015, in Las Vegas. Mayweather won a 12-round unanimous decision.
The racially charged language angered Mayweather so much that he stopped shadowboxing and started to walk toward McGregor, who quickly reworded his comments.
Bringing the microphone to his mouth, he said: "Dance for me, boy!". "I don't need a fighter to motivate me, but we have to give the people what they want to see, and that's what the people want to see".
