Floyd Mayweather’s trainer worried Conor McGregor might go crazy, do something stupid to get disqualified on Aug. 26

There’s a major UFC event this weekend, roughly 24 hours after Bellator MMA fires off one of the best fight cards in its entire history. Unfortunately, nobody is clicking on those posts, so I’m forced to revert back to the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor hype.

You have no one to blame but yourselves.

This latest angle comes from Mayweather’s assistant trainer Nate Jones, who is convinced “Money” will defeat the “Notorious” interloper when they collide this August, assuming McGregor doesn’t go crazy and do something stupid.

From his conversation with Submission Radio:

“One way I can see the fight ending is Floyd outboxing him, beating the crap out of him. Another way I’m gonna be concerned about is when Floyd gets to a point where he frustrates him too much, McGregor’s gonna do something crazy. That’s the only thing I’m worried about. He’s 40 years old, McGregor has crazy weird power and he’s got weird shots from weird angles. I’m worried about that. But for my prediction in the fight, is Floyd either confusing him and frustrating him and stopping him in the later rounds or Floyd outboxing him or he doing something stupid and losing the fight. That’s my prediction.”

Blame Joe Rogan for planting that seed.

McGregor, one of the best mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters on the planet, is contractually obligated to keep this bout strictly boxing. That means elbow, knees in the clinch, and other punishing moves from his world of cage fighting are barred.

According to this guy, he may not even need them.
