While Diaz thinks the McGregor vs. Mayweather talk is all just a publicity stunt to build their respective fanbases, Diaz says he would beat down both McGregor and Mayweather on the same night.
“I’m the only one out of the three of us who can say that I’ll whoop both of their asses in one night,” Diaz said to Ariel Helwani on a special edition of the MMA Hour on Wednesday (transcribed by MMA Junkie). “Cause Conor can’t say that. Floyd definitely cannot say that, you know what I’m saying? You want a real fight you (expletive) put me in with one of them boxers then, I guarantee I could beat them in boxing, at boxing.”
While Diaz was likely referring to beating both stars up in one night under mixed martial arts rules, he tells his honest take and doesn’t claim that he would beat the undefeated Mayweather in a boxing match but would make for a good fight.
“Mayweather’s the best boxer that there is at winning fights,” he continued. “I ain’t been boxing. I ain’t been in high-level boxing matches with him like that. But guarantee I’d do better than McGregor would.”
