Conor McGregor is Confident He’d Beat That ‘Little Motherf*cker’ Floyd Mayweather in Boxing Rematch or MMA Bout

The chances of the world seeing a rematch between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather is highly unlikely. Mayweather already got the perfect 50-0 record along with perhaps the biggest payout of his career from their first fight.
But if that rematch were to happen in the future, McGregor is fairly confident he would come out victorious.
Back in August, McGregor looked good in the early rounds, but ran out of gas and ultimately lost by a 10th-round TKO in the most hyped boxing match in recent memory. The MMA Lightweight champ believes he saw enough of Mayweather in the first fight to make adjustments and destroy him in the second fight.
“What’s sickening me is that the little motherf**ker is retired now,” McGregor told Caroline Pearce at An Evening with Conor McGregor at Glasgow’s SEC Armadillo venue.
“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).”
McGregor says he won’t pursue a rematch, but he believes Mayweather’s outrageous spending might lead him to wanting to fight in the MMA for huge money.
“It’s a dangerous game we’re in. I’m not gonna start calling him out. I’ll sit back and wait and I’ll fight,” he said.
“Let’s see how he handles this round of money. I might get the phone call again and we may do it again. Originally, he said an MMA fight next. He was talking about an MMA fight next.
“That’s what he said before the fight. So, what’s he going to do? Does he want another fight? In my head I’m thinking, get one of these boxing guys to come over into my world now.”
“I’m thinking, the tax bill of this last fight, the tax bill off his previous bill, and then his good investments, I think I could be getting a call anytime soon to go again and I f**king want to.”
