White also incredibly claimed “Money” wouldn’t last three seconds if he were to face of the Irish MMA star in the Octagon
UFC president Dana White has compared Conor McGregor to Muhammad Ali… saying the Irishman has the confidence to take Floyd Mayweather out.
White incredibly believes the Irish star has the confidence of the famous US boxer, but also insists he has the skill to beat “Money”.
The UFC president said McGregor has the power to finish the fight with Mayweather, saying: “Conor hits like a truck.”
While appearing on Jimmy Kimmel’s talk show in the US, White added he is looking forward to the unconventional showdown.
He said: “Conor McGregor will be completely unorthodox in his fight with Floyd Mayweather and it’s what makes the fight so intriguing.”
Mayweather made a statement saying that he is prepared to face McGregor in the Octagon, but White laughed saying that would last just “seconds”.
He quipped: “Three seconds, that thing would be over real quick.”
Back to the task at hand, White added McGregor will be more than ready for his boxing bout, based on his UFC experience.
