Mayweather vs McGregor All Access Episode 4
Showtime releases the fourth episode of All Access, its behind-the-scenes series about the build up to the McGregor-Mayweather fight. Dana White:
From the first day I met him I knew he’d be a big star. I call him ‘The Unicorn’. He’s very, very smart. His comedic timing is perfect. He’s a very likable guy. There’s no persona with Conor McGregor. He is who he is. I asked his girlfriend one time, ‘Is he like this 24/7?’ and she said, ‘Y’know Dana, sometimes I wake up and he’s shadow boxing in his underwear at three in the morning. That’s who he is.’…If Conor McGregor wins this fight, and he knocks out Floyd Mayweather, it will be the greatest upset in the history of sports. It is literally all anyone will talk about for a year…He has the ability to make you believe.

I could snap him down, latch up his neck and sleep him in seconds. So, I don’t give a fuck about him, I don’t hold respect for him, I will not show him respect in the fight. I don’t think he lasts four rounds, that’s being honest. Not only do I think I will beat him, I think I will also make it look easy.

Mayweather: McGregor’s switch strategy won’t work
At his Media Scrum, Mayweather says he has been keeping a close eye on McGregor’s preparations for their fight, and says he already know McGregor’s game plan, and says it won’t work against him.
It’s about doing your homework. It’s not really just watching fight tapes. It’s knowing the person that you’re facing across the ring from you…That’s called doing your due diligence and your homework on your opponent. Not just watching film and fight tapes…Even right now. I know what Conor McGregor is down to. He’s down. I think he was a little bit heavy. I think he’s at 160 now, so he’s down. Yeah, I mean I know what’s going on.
McGregor, he’s going to come out, and he’s going to keep switching. I already know what he’s going to do. He’s going to come out southpaw, then he’s going to switch the other way. But when you keep switching, all you’re going to do is burn energy.

All Access: Episode 2

Mayweather. Conor McGregor has the swag and the aura. That’s why he’s in the position he’s in. But, you don’t have Mayweather’s way, so you can’t get Mayweather’s payday…If he feels he’s the best fighter on Earth, I feel like I’m the best fighter on any planet.
McGregor: I don’t fight like anyone else. You can’t prepare for me. Look at Floyd’s past opponents; they have all feared him. They have all given him respect. I don’t give a f— about him. I don’t respect him. I will not show him respect in the fight…I will be ruthless in there…I am not messing around here. This is a confident, hungry, young man that’s coming for an aging fighter. And that’s it.

So this was it… the moment when I’d finally get to fulfill the 4th thing that I wanted to do. Ask Conor whether he’s prefer to fight 20 duck-sized Mayweathers, or one Mayweather-sized duck.
