Conor McGregor is set to challenge Jose Aldo for the Featherweight title at UFC 189, but he made a very bold statement in a recent interview with Esquire. He said that he would ‘kill Floyd Mayweather in less than thirty seconds.’ Ouch.
“I don’t look at a man who’s expert in one area as a specialist … I look at him as a rookie in ten other areas. If you can box, what happens if I grab hold of your legs?”
“If you put me face-to-face with Floyd Mayweather – pound-for-pound boxing’s best — if I fought Floyd, I would kill him in less than thirty seconds.”
“It would take me less than thirty seconds to wrap around him like a boa constrictor and strangle him.”
UFC 189 takes place on July 11, 2015 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
This event will be shown on pay-per-view, Fox Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.
