With smaller gloves, McGregor sees quick win over Mayweather

The UFC stripped McGregor of his featherweight belt shortly after that fight when he announced he would be taking some time off after he and long-time partner Dee Devlin had their first baby in May.

"In the same way that I revolutionized the sport of boxing, I'm going to disrupt the fitness industry", he added.

UFC chief Dana White admits he first thought Conor McGregor's fight with Floyd Mayweather was a "crazy idea" that would never come to fruition. Not a hope in hell, in my opinion.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission approved a rule change on August 16 that will allow the fighters to use eight ounce gloves rather than the agreed 10 ounce gloves in the fight contract.

According to White, the estimate for total pay-per-view buys is around 4.9 million, which is 300,000 more buys than for the record-setting fight between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao in 2015.

"So I believe I will paint pictures in there that he has never seen or the boxing community has never seen before and that will cause him big trouble", said the Irishman.

"He's got everybody believing that he can beat the greatest fighter of our era".

"It would be the biggest sporting achievement of any sports ever if he manages to pull this off", he said.

But Manuwa - who knows about shock KOs after his loss to Volkan Oezemir after 48 seconds last time out - reckons Mystic Mac's spiteful left hand can shock the world. The bout which is all set for the 26th of August at the T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas is highly anticipated in positive and negative light's across the boxing spectrum. Both reps said neither fighter was concerned that it would be a risk. Conor's totally focused, he's a workaholic.

McGregor also said that Mayweather - a man he has repeatedly ridiculed over social media and at a number of different press conferences - would earn his respect if he ever chose to try his hand at MMA.
