Holloway says he wants to meet McGregor for a second time (he previously lost to McGregor in 2103) if he ever decides to return to 145-pounds one day. The thing I always get hit with. Talking about this being a fake belt and the real champion beat both of these guys. I always say forget past […]

Aldo says McGregor will not fight Mayweather, because of UFC contract rules. We have a contract with the UFC, every athlete does, and everything has to go through the UFC.

Boxing promoter Arum says the UFC is asking for half of McGregor’s fee to fight Mayweather.

Roach says that McGregor cannot beat Mayweather. I’d love to see it. He’s fun to watch. He’s a character. [But] he’s not that good of a fighter. He’ll let his hands go and so forth. He’s a little wild. He’s putting himself on a very high level. I think he’s more of a four-round fighter at […]

Duffy, who beat McGregor with a 38-second submission in 2010, says McGregor cannot beat Mayweather I think in combat sports, there’s always a puncher’s chance.
