Conor McGregor Says He’ll Make Floyd Mayweather Like Jose Aldo, “Nothing”
By FCF Staff
As Conor McGregor prepares to box Floyd Mayweather, the UFC lightweight champ is drawing parallels to one of his greatest victories to date, his knockout of Jose Aldo.
McGregor will face Mayweather on August 26th, in what many expect could be the highest grossing bout in combat sports history. Since McGregor has never fought in a professional boxing match, Mayweather is a heavy favorite to win the contest.
Despite that fact, McGregor has repeatedly said he’s going to KO the decorated boxer. More recently, at an open media workout, McGregor had this to say about the upcoming fight (quote via UFC.com):
“Wait until you see when (Mayweather) falls – how you all write him off after this and he becomes like Aldo,” McGregor said. “Aldo was him at one stage and he just becomes nothing.”
“I don’t know how many times they’ve labeled me a joke,” McGregor added. “‘He’s a joker. What weight is he moving; what weight is he hitting; what weight is this? He doesn’t stand a chance.’
McGregor knocked Aldo out in just 13 seconds at UFC 194 in 2015, which marked the first time in ten years that the Brazilian star had been defeated. Since then, Aldo has defeated Frankie Edgar, but most recently he was stopped by Max Holloway.
