Boxer Jessie Vargas Says Conor McGregor Was Knocked Out Cold By Brandon Rios During Sparring Session (VIDEO)
While Conor McGregor was beaming with confidence during his world tour with Floyd Mayweather, former WBO welterweight champion and Olympic boxer Jessie Vargas has heard rumors about his training sessions and it spells impending doom for the UFC fighter.
During an interview with Villainfy Media, Vargas claimed he heard rumors that McGregor got knocked out cold during a sparring session with boxer Brandon Rios in preparation for his bout with Mayweather in August.
“He got knocked out cold. We hearing stories.
The boxing world is small, you hear these things. I heard they tried Brandon Rios but he knocked out Conor, so they had to push him away.”
Vargas was never too high on McGregor’s chances to begin with. He also claimed that he has about a one percent chance of defeating the undefeated Floyd Mayweather.
“I just got tired of it, but I’m looking forward to seeing Floyd get the victory by knockout. Conor is going to get knocked out. Floyd always lives up to the hype, I have no doubt about that, Floyd will get the victory. I actually wanna put some money on it, you know, Conor has like 1% chance of winning.”
