As much as the world is undoubtedly salivating for a super fight between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather, the odds of it actually happening are probably somewhere between extremely unlikely and no way in hell.
Of course, that doesn’t mean much of anything to a guy like McGregor, whose braggadocio is only barely outdone by his fighting skill.
Mayweather added fuel to the fire, dissing McGregor to TMZ by saying that comparing him to McGregor was “disrespectful,” and proceeded to refer to McGregor as an “ant.”
Naturally, a war of words ensued. On Tuesday night, McGregor hijacked the microphone at NYC night spot Club 1 Oak and laid out his terms for the dream matchup at NYC club 1 Oak—a cool $100 million.
“Floyd’s not ready for this,” McGregor said. “Much respect Floyd…But as far as far as real fighting…as far as true unarmed combat…Floyd don’t want none of this. He wants a boxing match. He doesn’t want a fight. I want a $100 million cash to fight him under boxing rules…He’s afraid of a real fight.”
Them’s fightin’ words.
And we can only hope this actually happens.
