The hype around Mayweather-Pacquiao and McGregor-Aldo is pretty wild. Imagine the hype for Mayweather-McGregor?

Two of the biggest fights of the year, in boxing and MMA respectively, are Floyd Mayweather v Manny Pacquiao in May and Conor McGregor v Jose Aldo in July. 

So, when McGregor sat down with Esquire for a chat, it was obvious that the subject of Money Mayweather would come up.

And, as we have learned to expect, McGregor didn't hold back in his views.

“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.”

Considering his profession is MIXED Martial Arts it should be no surprise that Notorious prides himself on multi-disciplinary ability but we would love to see him and Mayweather square off one day.
