On the most recent Fight Companion episode of the Joe Rogan Experience, host Joe Rogan delved into the topic of a possible Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor boxing mega fight – a mega fight that is looking more possible by the day.
In this segment, Rogan began by referring to this much discussed Mayweather-McGregor fight as the biggest fight ever.
His words (via MMAFighting.com):
“It’s the biggest fight ever. Because it brings in two worlds. It brings in the UFC world and this one guy who’s unquestionably the biggest star in the UFC – unquestionably, by a long shot – and then you bring in a guy who has been one of the biggest money makers in the history of boxing, the only guy to go 49-0 other than Rocky Marciano. He’s right there and he’d love to break Rocky Marciano’s record.”
Rogan then weighed in on McGregor’s chances of victory, saying such a thing is possible despite the Irishman’s underdog status.
“There’s something about [Conor McGregor]. I’m telling you, there’s something about that dude. He’s got something going on. He’s got a little something extra special but he would need everything to line up.”
“Mayweather would have to dismiss him as a threat. He’d have to not train hard enough, he’d have to not seriously consider the possibility that Conor connects on him and knocks him out. And then Conor would have to do some roughhousing. He’d have to hold him in the clinch. He’d have to hold him and hit him. He’d have to try and get off as many shots and bully him around and wear him out. It’s a possibility. He’s a much bigger man. He’s a much bigger man. If you compare the two of them frame-wise, if they ever do do it, and they’re standing right at each other, looking down at each other doing eye-to-eye, you’re gonna go ‘oh, s**t.’ [Conor]’s a big f**k. He can make that 145-pound cut when he’s on death’s door, but Mayweather makes it easy.”
