Conor McGregor isn’t calling Floyd Mayweather out, but still thinks he can beat him.

Hi. Hello. I’m sorry we’re doing this to you, but listen, or don’t: Conor McGregor is certain that if he got a boxing rules rematch with Floyd Mayweather, he’d win the second time around.

From MMA Fighting:

“What’s sickening me is that the little motherfucker is retired now. I know if I went another go with him, under boxing rules, I’d get that win. I know that. I know by the feeling of him in the first fight. He had to change his whole approach. He fought completely different than he ever fought. He couldn’t figure out what I was doing early on.

“With the lessons I learned from that first fight, if I had another go now, I’d get him. At the same time, he’s 50-0 and he’s getting on, I’m not gonna start calling him out. I’m happy to see a fighter (do well).”

I really have nothing to add to this. I don’t think he’d beat Mayweather in a rematch were it to happen any time soon. Maybe when Mayweather is 50, if his hip starts to go or something. I don’t know.

But it’s a story. Famous people, traffic, slow week, etc. Have fun.
