    Conor cracks me up. But he kinda makes a point in terms that Floyd was using his name to muster up PR for whatever reason he wanted to. Whose picking Conor this weekend? I think he gets it right this time against Nate and finishes him.

    I heard that Floyd did and still wanted to fight him, but Dana White was blocking it.

    Floyd wasn't the one that needed Connor, Connor was the one trying to generate interest and delay the Diaz rematch.

    Didn't listen to the interview but if he's said what the title says, he's probably correct. I'm sure Floyd is trying to get Showtime to sign off to box an MMA fighter and get paid millions.. Easy win and easy millions... Thing is I don't see Dana allowing it... Connor would take it I'm sure, he gets millions and an excuse for the loss as he's not a real boxer.

    It would be probably the biggest mismatch in PPV history.

    They should just do it in the octagon. I'd rather not see it in the ring.

    I can not stand this guy. Not only is he just an egotistical cunt, but he really thinks he is the biggest thing in boxing, a sport he has never even fought in? And this guy was getting beat standing up by fucking Nate Diaz but he thinks he can beat Mayweather? But not only that, he thinks he is worth something in boxing and that mayweather is begging to fight him? That can't be true, and if it is, that is really bad on Mayweather's part. That fight is a joke and always has been.

    He calls Canelo and GGG cherry pickers also

    http://www.latimes.com/sports/sportsnow/la-sp-sn-ufc-conor-mcgregor-nate-diaz-202-las-vegas-20160815-snap-story.html

    “If you look at the history of the fight game, especially in this new era, it’s full of stars cherry picking their opponents,” McGregor told The Times. “When they hold a position of power, when they get a name, all of a sudden they pick weaker opponents. They look down their division. Nobody looks up a division. Nobody looks at true challenges.

    “Then, once in a blue moon, when that true challenge can’t be denied, like the [Floyd] Mayweather-[Manny] Pacquiao situation, it happens.

    “But when you look at this Canelo [Alvarez] situation,” who surrendered his middleweight belt to fight anonymous English 154-pound champion Liam Smith instead of unbeaten middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin, and Golovkin turning around to fight 147-pound champion Kell Brook for his next opponent, “it’s an era of cherry picking,” McGregor said.

    “It’s not like that with me. I’m here to challenge myself. I’m training to go up two divisions, and it’s going to be a great fight,” he said.

    People can dislike him all they want. But more often than not, he speaks the truth.

    100 million dollar pay checks arent cherry picks.

    100 million dollar easy ass fights are the very definition of cherry picks. McGregor is the ripest, juiciest, most lucrative cherry. :deal

    This in a nutshell. McGregor was getting hit by Diaz, who in my opinion is a decent striker by MMA standards but absolutely horrible as far as pure boxing is concerned. Mayweather would toy with this clown and check-hook him until he was knocked senseless.

    McGregor couldn't even win this fight if it was fought in the octagon under MMA rules since his ground game is crap to begin with. Just think how fast Floyd would KO him with those little bitty gloves they wear in MMA. McGregor has as much chance of beating Floyd as Rhonda Rousey has.

    I think he's quite funny tbh. I don't take anything he says serious, and I don't think he does either

    This is stupid.

    A guaranteed one hundred million dollar + pay check is not a cherry pick.

    Yes, it is. You have your definition completely backwards. Picking cherries is just grabbing for easy fights as opposed to fighting the top of the division. McGregor is an easy fight that comes with a big pay day. He's the greatest cherry pick of all time.
