UFC’s Brendan Schaub Bets ‘D–k Pic’ On Mayweather vs. McGregor Fight (VIDEO)
In less than a month, UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor will make his pro boxing debut against undefeated boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. In the MMA world, McGregor is a tremendously talented mixed martial artist, but not many are giving him much of a shot when he’ll be forced to use nothing but his hands.
Former UFC heavyweight Brendan Schaub is so confident in McGregor that he boldly predicted the Irishman will win a few rounds and the fight will go the distance. If not, Schaub promised to do something very unusual.
“[McGregor]’s gonna land multiple punches,” Schaub said (h/t MMAFighting.com). I guarantee it. So this isn’t like a Skip Bayless take, I’m just trying to honeyd*ck people – oh, give me views. I know what I’m talking about. I boxed for 15 years, fought professionally for 10 years in mixed martial arts. I know boxing, I know mixed martial arts, and I know when I got in there with professional boxers, it took them about a round to feel me out and the way I do stand up is traditional. It’s boxing. I don’t have this weird, awkward style. Conor does.”
“With Conor, it’s a matter of time on how long does it take Floyd Mayweather to get used to this weird, awkward style,” Schaub continued. “So Mayweather has to download McGregor’s movement, everything that he’s never seen before. He’s gonna do it, it’s just gonna be how long? These old boxing heads, they know boxing and they hope Floyd doesn’t lose so they trash mixed martial arts but they don’t actually know what they’re talking about.”
“[McGregor will win] at least one [round]. I wouldn’t be surprised if he wins two to three [rounds] early on. . . I will send you guys a dick pic if it doesn’t go all 12 rounds. . . I immediately regret saying that. It’s gonna be a good pic though. I’m gonna hire glamour shots.”
