Former UFC champion Michael Bisping thinks Conor McGregor would “destroy” Floyd Mayweather in the octagon if the two ever agreed to an MMA fight.
Mayweather has been dropping hints online which suggest that he would be willing to face McGregor in the UFC, although no deal has been announced yet.
Speaking on his podcast, Believe You Me. Bisping said that he thinks Mayweather has no intention of getting into an MMA fight and that he’s just looking for attention. He said:
I think [Floyd] is probably trolling people. I honestly can’t see Floyd Mayweather fighting mixed martial arts and certainly [not one] in the UFC.
Despite his thoughts that Mayweather wouldn’t get in the octagon, Bisping said that he’d be out of his depth.
If he does fight in the UFC it’s going to be against Conor McGregor and Conor McGregor in an MMA fight will ******* destroy Floyd Mayweather like he’s never seen. I don’t know what he’s doing, he’s maybe trying to stay relevant, maybe he’s trying to hype he’s next boxing match, maybe he’s trying to get a rematch with Conor McGregor in the boxing world, I don’t know what he’s doing.
There are rumours that the fight could be worth up to a billion dollars, hence the attraction and Bisping admitted that he would tune in to watch it
Who wouldn’t watch if? – I’d watch it – of course I would.
