McGregor takes subtle approach to trolling Mayweather

After months of speculation, the Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor superfight is finally happening. Only Brock Lesnar's fight against Frank Mir in 2009 is sandwiched between those two.

Regardless of some dismissing it as a mismatch, Mayweather-McGregor is expected to do record business for a boxing fight and may eclipse Golovkin-Alvarez in revenue and television viewers. Every time he fights he's doubted, people are like, 'You cant do this, you cant do that.' We know what Conor is capable of.

One of the most interesting prop bets on Mayweather vs. McGregor is +5000 if Floyd is disqualified.

Last year, Sony surprised everyone by starting their E3 2016 presser with a gameplay demo of an all-new take on God of War . Who looks awesome , I definitely thought he was going to eat them, but apparently he was speaking to them.

Conor McGregor is not the type of athlete who needs constant reinforcement or motivation. "If he says he's gonna go in and knock him out, I think he's gonna go in and knock him out". I think it's going to be a very entertaining fight.

McGregor is also well known for his ability to trash talk an opponent into a full on frenzy, but for now Mayweather is all smiles as he prepares for the fight in August at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

"I can't take it serious", Lewis said.

It's great to hear HHH talking about a mainstream fight like this, and if Floyd's history with the company tells us anything, it's that there is always the potential for someone like McGregor to cross over into our universe.

Initially the market average listed Mayweather as a -1000 betting favorite, with the take-back on McGregor at +700.

"[If McGregor kicked Mayweather], that would be fucked up", Rogan said on his podcast, via MMA Fighting. "He'll drop the hands and Floyd will beat him up so badly, they'll stop the fight".
