Here we go again, this time it’s the English capital of London…
During the past three nights we’ve seen the best and worst of Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor. Thanks to a combination of poor production by Showtime, and some seriously questionable antics, the MayMac world tour has been hit and miss.
First off fans in Los Angeles and around the world got to wait an entire hour longer for the show to start. Once they’d finally got going, we had a mini-presser for the main presser to get through first.
Riddled with errors throughout, the LA show paled in comparison to the Toronto conference.
Toronto Was Good, New York Was…Eh…
Sparking huge debate online with his comments about being ‘half black,’ McGregor gave the tour a little bit more bad press. Was it intentional? Maybe, maybe not, but the two natural entertainers have the chance to end it all on a high note tonight.
Going down in the SSE Arena in London, England, the last stop is likely to summarise the tour with a bang. Let’s just hope Showtime can get their sh*t together for the final press conference.
Here’s the live Youtube stream courtesy of UFC, stream starts at 7 PM GMT, that’s 2 PM Eastern Time:
Some of the best quotes from LA, Toronto and New York:
“I just want to speak to all the boxing pu**ies, all the supposed experts,” McGregor said. “You’re f*cking crazy if you think this man stands a chance. His head is too small! One shot is all it takes me, check the facts, I bounce heads off the canvas and dribble that sh*t!”
“He tip-tap-toes to a decision. He has never even fought a day in his life. He’s a runner. He’s boxing’s biggest b*tch!”
“We not talkin’ about being at the top one year, two year, three, four years; motherfucker, 21 years. Yeah, and they said, ‘I’m the motherfucker that can’t read? Bitch, I do numbers. I make money. You know my middle name, bitch.”
“I do? Let me see the bag. Yeah, he was right, the bag got books, and we gonna show you what the books look like. If you believe in yourself like you say you believe in yourself, bet your whole fight check, you bitch.”
War of Words
FM: “We gonna get off in that ass. That’s what we gonna do. And guess what, I’m an old man. I’m not the same man I was 20 years ago, I’m not the same fighter I was 10 years ago, I’m not the same fighter I was five years ago, I’m not even the same fighter I was two years ago. But I got enough to beat you (McGregor).”
CM: “He was trying to say something about the gloves, he cried about the gloves. He was saying to me ‘UFC or MMA next.’ And he was just talking shite to me. I had fun, they cut my mic. They can do what they want, but August 26 they can do nothing to stop me.”
