Conor McGregor set for quite remarkable record but not everyone's impressed

Conor McGregor set for quite remarkable record but not everyone's impressed

Nevertheless, Mayweather kept his cool and methodically waited for McGregor to tire around the eighth round before unloading barrage after barrage of punches, causing referee Robert Byrd to stop the fight. Before his 2016 fight with Nate Diaz, Conor chose to sell himself as a major heel in the world of professional wrestling.

Although there is no official report to confirm Mayweather's net worth as of this writing, and despite speculations that his earnings from his recent fight was enough to earn him the "billionaire athlete" title, a new report claimed that was highly unlikely.

Previously unseen footage has emerged showing Conor McGregor's devastated reaction to losing his mega-fight with Floyd Mayweather.

It was widely believed that Mayweather would win the fight given McGregor's lack of boxing experience, with some critics saying McGregor would not land a single punch. He knew from the start he wasn't going to be troubled.

Continuing the fight would have put McGregor at risk for continued head trauma, risking a future of chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or at worst, repetitive damage leading to a severe traumatic brain injury such as a brain bleed.

Some would say "Yeah, he got the money", but his passion for winning is shown in this video.

In the first two fights, Nate Diaz made a disclosed payout of $2.5 million, which doesn't include fight night bonuses and sponsors. McGregor and Mayweather walked away with guaranteed $30 and $100 million purses respectively. McGregor retained his pride with a respectable performance, and Mayweather retired with 50-0 record.

"From everything that goes with it, I don't know if I'd be in agreement with it but there's no doubt he's an incredible athlete", he added.

"Will Conor McGregor end up in the WWE?".

Canelo is now preparing to challenge Gennady Golovkin for his IBF, IBO, WBA and WBC middleweight belts, in a fight that will headline an HBO pay-per-view event.

McGregor entered the bout, as one of mixed martial arts fastest rising stars, becoming the Ultimate Fighting Championship's first ever double champion. Following his 10 round loss to Floyd Mayweather on August 26th. If McGregor lost to Pacquiao he would still return to the UFC as a superstar....and if he somehow beats Manny, he'd make another fortune fighting a name boxer.

"I think making the switch from the octagon to the boxing ring was harder than he thought but he might stay there and fight Paulie Malignaggi".
