Pettis sticks up for McGregor and disses Diaz

Pettis sticks up for McGregor and disses Diaz

Immediately after the fight, Money gave some insight into one of the reason he took it easy in training camp, and it was nothing to do with arrogance. McGregor's legal team responded, denying liability, per The Blast, on July 27.

At the age of just 31, the Jamaican is open to moving from athletics into another sport, but there's no point in McGregor rubbing his hands together in glee with dollar signs in his eyes over another potential cross-sport dust-up.

Maybe more hilarious than the lawsuit itself is how the plaintiff, William Pegg, calculated the $95,000 he feels he's owed: by counting the number of times McGregor was punched by Diaz. No one will mistake Mayweather McGregor for the "rumble in the jungle" but it certainly was worth the price of admission.

Thereafter, uncharacteristically he turned aggressor, attempting to walk his opponent down in a way he last regularly did while fighting at a far lighter weight. Regardless of what happened behind closed doors, I am a firm believer that Mayweather vs. McGregor was good for boxing as it revitalized a slipping fan base and displayed how boxing can still be entertaining.

While McGregor has long since paid his fine, it appears he's not out of the woods just yet.

"If he goes in there and gets knocked out, yeah MMA takes a hit".

Mayweather's record is now 50-0.

"It says how much better Floyd is than McGregor". "There's no excuses, he came out here and fought a hell of a fight", Mayweather said back then.

Davis, a fighter for Mayweather Promotions, was fortunate not to have been disqualified, but will likely imminently fight again to recover the vacant title. Floyd didn't put all of what Floyd could do in the McGregor fight. Me and Nate have had a lot of issues.
