Retired UFC fighter Brendan Schaub has been a vocal supporter for UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor for quite some time now.
The former fighter believes in McGregor so much that he made quite the bet for the upcoming super fight against Floyd Mayweather.
“These old boxing heads, they know boxing and they hope Floyd doesn’t lose so they trash mixed martial arts but they don’t actually know what they’re talking about. [McGregor will win] at least one [round]. I wouldn’t be surprised if he wins two to three [rounds] early on. I will send you guys a dick pic if it doesn’t go all 12 rounds. I immediately regret saying that [laughs]. It’s gonna be a good pic though. I’m gonna hire glamour shots,” Schaub said on The Kicker.
McGregor is going to head into this fight with a true lack of professional boxing experience, because this fight is going to be his professional MMA debut.
Schaub would go as far as to say that if a knockout ends the fight, it’s going to be McGregor getting his hand raised.
“If anyone’s gonna get knocked out it’s Floyd. I promise you Conor will not get knocked out. If anyone gets finished that night, it’s Floyd,” says Schaub.
Conor McGregor versus Floyd Mayweather takes place on Saturday, August 26 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
