The latest episode of Showtime’s All Access Mayweather vs. McGregor aired last night and you can watch it in its entirety below…
“If ever there’s a contest to be motivated by, this is it.”
Conor McGregor has long claimed that the doubts and nays of others provide him with added motivation. The above statement then, is indeed accurate.
McGregor may have had his doubters and detractors as he climbed the UFC featherweight ranks on the way to championship glory, or when he attempted to exact vengeance against Nate Diaz under unfavourable circumstances at UFC 202, or when he took on UFC lightweight kingpin Eddie Alvarez in an attempt to become the first man in the promotion’s history to simultaneously hold titles in two weight-classes, but never has he encountered a wave of derision like the one he faces ahead of August 26th and his boxing showdown with Floyd Mayweather Jr.
“‘Not a chance, not a hope, he’s not going to lay a glove, he’s going to get embarrassed, he’s going to get killed.’ My whole career I am always told I can’t do this, I can’t do that. I feel when someone tells you that you can’t do something, that’s when you must do something,” said ‘The Notorious’ one during episode 4 of All Access Mayweather vs. McGregor.
“Floyd, he’s sparring 135-pound kids. You think that I am a 135-pound kid? I am a 170-pound Irish gorilla and I’m going to rip his head off and play football with it,” he added emphatically.
“You’re seeing an animal coming in here and destroying the whole game.”
Following his decision victory over the aforementioned Diaz in a titanic five-round war last August, McGregor uttered one of his most famous lines.
“They all doubted me,” proclaimed McGregor. “Doubt me now.”
Will we here this line again on August 26th?
