Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather, Jon Jones

Connor McGregor a.k.a. Mystic Mac, due to his ability to predict how he will defeat his opponents, is predicting that he will knock Mayweather out inside of 4 rounds. Can he really beat Floyd Mayweather, the fighter who calls himself the best ever? Well, he will always have a puncher’s chance, specially because Mayweather has said that he will be more aggressive in this fight for the fans because he feels that he owes the fans an exciting fight.

Some people may say that Floyd Mayweather won’t fight aggressively against Conor McGregor, but Mayweather certainly has the ability to walk a fighter down. Take his fight against Zab Judah for example, Mayweather appeared to be behind in the first 4 rounds of the fight, but was then told by his trainer and uncle, Roger Mayweather, to walk Judah down. Mayweather then proceeded to tuck his elbows in and began to Jab Super Judah down and ultimately won the fight.  Mayweather has also beaten some big punchers in the past 5 years, Miguel Cotto, Canelo Alvarez, Marcos Maidana, and the great Manny Pacquiao.

Fortunately, we won’t have wait long to see whether McGregor can deliver a Mayweather knockout. The fight is on in three days on Saturday August 26th.

Below is a video posted by Fight Hub TV of Paulie Malignagi confronting McGregor and his manager regarding the recent controversy between the two during the McGregor training camp.

It has just been revealed that Jon Jones failed a drug test ahead of his recent bout with Daniel Cormier. Jones tested positive for the anabolic steroid turinabol and due to his previous positive drug tests he potentially faces a suspension doubled in length, which would mean that he would get back into the UFC at 32-33 years old. During the post fight interview for his recent fight with Daniel Cormier, Jones spoke about the long road to get back to the UFC and how much he admired Daniel Cormier for being model champion and that he aspired to be like him. I liked everything I heard from Jon Jones that night and was glad that he was able to mature and get back to the UFC, but Jon Jones has proven that his words were just pure lip service. With that said, I do hope that he can find his way back to the UFC legitimately because I believe that he is the greatest fighter to have ever fought in the UFC, unfortunately that distinction will forever be tainted by all of his failed drug tests.
