Conor McGregor Says Boxers Would Get Killed In A Real Fight

UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor has been coming apart at the seams as he tries to get the legendary Floyd Mayweather Jr. into the ring for a super fight.

The MMA superstar isn’t just taking shots at Mayweather Jr. anymore, but now he’s looking to take on the entire sport of boxing.

In a recent Instagram post, the UFC lightweight trailblazer says that boxers would get killed and dismantled in a real fight.


Myself and @sbgcharlestown have been working together on unrestricted, unarmed fighting, since we are kids. Not much will change when I fight under the famed, yet very limited, Queensbury rules. No disrespect to single discipline fighters, from boxing to kicking to grappling, just know that understanding one style of fighting is simply not enough. You are lying to yourself. You are easily dismantled in a true fight. A fight with no rules to protect you. In a straight fight, you do not possess enough tools to keep you alive. You will be dismantled and killed. Like the late, great Bruce Lee once said: "When you are talking about fighting, as it is, with no rules, well then baby, you'd better train every part of your body"

There has been no response from Mayweather Jr. on this recent video, but Mayweather Jr. once said that he was the face of MMA and this may have been the response from McGregor.

McGregor may not have an ounce of professional boxing experience, but he’s doing everything he can to get under the skin of those who are a part of the sport.
