Joe Rogan lays down some wild odds for Mayweather vs. McGregor…

Tired of hearing about Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather? Well, if you are, we’ve got some bad news-this fight is creeping closer to a reality everyday. Before, back in 2015 when this banter started, most dismissed the fight as attention grabbing.

Now, less than two years later, both men are poised to collide some time this year. Even UFC president Dana White is unable to shy away from the facts. Although the promotion has McGregor under contract, it was recently revealed the UFC would hunt 50% of McGregor’s purse to allow him to box Floyd.

What Are The Chances?

Having made a career out of proving people wrong, Conor McGregor is a hard man to bet against. In terms of boxing Mayweather, though, it’s a completely different ball game. Obviously there are many doubters in the Irishman’s chances against the boxing great.

Training footage leaked last month had boxing pundits in stitches, but one MMA face is not so convinced. Speaking during the Joe Rogan Experience, the UFC color commentator doesn’t feel this fight is completely black and white:

Rogan on McGregor’s Death Touch

“Mayweather is a way better boxer. There’s just no doubt about it,” Rogan said. “He’s one of the greatest boxers, if not the greatest boxer that has ever lived. And even though he’s smaller, you’re talking about a completely different level of skill, a completely different level of understanding of the subtle nuances of boxing. But that said, Conor McGregor is not incompetent. He’s very dangerous. In MMA it’d be 100 million to one against Mayweather.”

“Floyd Mayweather is a way better boxer, but Conor McGregor is dangerous as (expletive), and he has a really deceptive ability to move in and move out. He can cover distance very quickly, and he can do so in a weird way. He can do so in a way where he might stun you. He might stun you, and he might catch you early, and he hits really (expletive) hard. But if Floyd can figure him out and start using his jab and using his movement — see, Floyd has traditionally had problems with southpaws, but he’s never lost to one. And we’re talking about professional boxers. McGregor has that death touch, and when he touches you with it you are in trouble.”
