Dana White: How Conor McGregor Could Win Floyd Mayweather Fight

Despite the fact that Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather have finished their four public interviews before their battle at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on August 26th, the limited time visit proceeds. On Thursday, UFC president Dana White went on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to discuss "the greatest battle in battle sports history" and the wild press visit that arrived at its decision a week ago. 

As a matter of first importance, White assessed McGregor's odds against Mayweather. White has just addressed that inquiry a few times this month, however he multiplied down on the possibility that McGregor just needs one of his punches to associate for him to pull off the surprise. White additionally said that Mayweather has a past filled with battling against left-gave contenders, which actually plays into McGregor's hands. 

"Tune in, when you put two individuals together anyplace – here, anyplace – and they begin tossing punches, the sky is the limit. Floyd Mayweather will be 41 years of age this year. On the off chance that there is a crimp in that defensive layer, it has been with southpaws," White disclosed to Jimmy Kimmel. "Conor McGregor is a southpaw. He is 28 years of age and he hits like a truck. He has got 12 rounds to arrive that punch. When he hits individuals, they go. Also, in the event that he hits Floyd, I think he will hurt him. Also, when he harms individuals, he puts them away." 

White was then asked to what extent Mayweather would last on the off chance that he ventured into an Octagon with McGregor: "Three seconds," he said. "That thing would be over genuine speedy." 

"The thing is that tossing punches is a piece of what we do in the UFC, and Conor McGregor can toss some punches," White proceeded. "That child hits hard. The certainty this person has in himself is mind boggling. I haven't seen anything like this since Muhammad Ali. … Floyd would take several leg kicks and that would be the finish of that." 

McGregor, obviously, can't utilize any MMA strategies against Mayweather one month from now. White has made it clear that Mayweather would "demolish Conor's life" with a claim in the event that he endeavors to do anything outside of the guidelines of boxing. That still hasn't prevented some from thinking about how a battle would go down between them if there weren't any principles, however. 

At long last, White said that, after some theory, President Donald Trump won't see the battle face to face. White told journalists a week ago that Trump is "100 percent inspired by going to the occasion," yet doing as such would conceivably destroy it, given the required level of security. It's the reason Trump didn't go to UFC 205 at Madison Square Garden a year ago when McGregor turned into the UFC's lightweight champion by thumping Eddie Alvarez out in the second round.
