Watch: Somebody Made an Epic Mayweather-McGregor Hype Video
It’s happening. Floyd “Money” Mayweather is actually going to fight Conor McGregor. One of the best pound-for-pound boxers of all time versus the biggest mixed martial arts superstar on the planet.
Unfortunately, the actual fight will probably suck, because McGregor has never boxed before. But the actual fight isn’t really the point, is it? The novelty is what’s going to sell this thing. Maybe McGregor will get his ass handed to him. But what if he doesn’t? What if he actually hangs in long enough to get lucky and land one of his devastating left hooks? People are going to watch because of that tiny sliver of hope.
It’s like an episode of Animal Face-Off. You know the crocodile is probably going to beat the zebra. But what if the crocodile slips up, and the zebra kicks its hind legs at the right time and smashes the crocodile’s eye? That could happen, right?
In any case, even if Mayweather-McGregor proves to be a total snoozer, the lead-up to the fight will be entertaining as hell. Conor McGregor is one of the best trash-talkers in the history of sports, and Floyd Mayweather just never shuts up about how great he is. They’ve already given us so many amazing soundbites that somebody was able to make this epic Mayweather-McGregor hype video.
The video (which features lots of NSFW language) is a little long, but it’s also really good. In fact, it’s almost good enough to make you forget how lopsided this bout will be and buy into the excitement.
Take a look:
August 26 can’t come soon enough!
