Final Mayweather-McGregor press conference more subdued than fans might expect

"I've had my nutritionist practically living with me throughout camp".

"Listening to him saying that about MMA is what woke me up", he said. I will keep my word. "You've got to trust and believe me, he's going to knock this mother f****r out". Behind the scenes, he wants to be a shrewd businessman.

McIlroy went on to explain that he's met the Irishman before and that the "showman" you see during press conferences is not an accurate representation of McGregor. Are you anxious about that? "I have adapted perfectly to boxing, I am very pleased and ready".

Rebney says MMA fighters, particularly the biggest draws, will be following Saturday's numbers closely and asking UFC a lot more questions about their earnings in the future.

It seems in keeping with the astronomical figures cited ahead of the fight, with both fighters standing to earn over $150 million, that this belt is just as ridiculous. He messed up with the eight-ounce gloves.

FM: I'm not anxious about that.

He also said he would "crumble" Mayweather, who is unbeaten in 49 professional contests.

"No one lured me (out of retirement)", Mayweather said.

Floyd Mayweather is no stranger to taking home some impressive luxury belts. Experience tilts towards me period. And it will be a world event, as McGregor's Irish roots have continued to be hyped heading into the fight.

"I'm calm and cool, same as I am in every fight". He is not even a quarter of the man I am.

M: Is your 50th straight win victory really at stake?

"I'm gonna f*** this boy up".

They made No. 14 play under 300 yards on Friday and even played No. 8 to just 346 yards (McIlroy almost drove the green). He went without a bogey in his second round and had four straight birdies at one point.

Taffet said that while an average of 5-6 people normally watches a pay-per-view, he wouldn't be surprised if the fight averages 10 people a household. Unlike when he's fighting under the UFC banner, McGregor is permitted to sport corporate logos on his shorts and robe against Mayweather, a lucrative revenue stream not available to UFC fighters. My legacy, my record, everything is at stake.

"You can extrapolate off the numbers this produces", he said.

Conor McGregor had heated confrontations with both Floyd Mayweather and Paulie Malignaggi at the fighters' grand arrivals for Saturday's fight in Las Vegas. The lack of respect for my abilities is disappointing, but it motivates me. "The thing looks like a crack den, and that's no disrespect to the people that are in there". We have a lot of respect and passion for each other. "Just me and the guy I'm competing against".

"I was a young kid listening to him talking down about the sport I was dedicated to for my entire life. Then if anyone wants to challenge me they can do it in my octagon".

Would you expect anything less for such a big fight? Why take a chance on making $30 million when you can make $300 million?

Eric Castillo, general manager at the Buffalo Wild Wings at 6320 19th St., said the restaurant does not always charge a cover fee for pay-per-view events. I guarantee it. I believe in myself so much.

Conor McGregor speaks during a media workout at the UFC Performance Institute on August 11. (Mayweather is actually 49-0 with 26 knockouts.) It's incredible. There have been many articles, many stories around me but I think they are fine.

"I'm telling everybody it won't be the seventh round".

The Mayweather-McGregor fight is also available through cable providers and online streaming for $99.95. In UFC, we usually do five 5 minute rounds, that is, 25 minutes, now it's 36. "I was born a fighter, I will die a fighter".

"I'm intrigued. He talks a good game".

It's up to McGregor, 29, quickly establishing himself as one of the best MMA stars to have lived, to prove the transition between the two crafts isn't as hard as some would suggest-at least not for one of his skill level.
