Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion Conor “Notorious” McGregor is gearing up to take on undefeated boxing phenom Floyd Mayweather Jr. for the potential payday of his career. Now, fighters and fans are voicing their thoughts on the epic cross-promotional match up. Among them, UFC commentating veteran Joe Rogan has come forward with his opinion on the match up.
On his podcast Joe Rogan Experience, Joe Rogan stated “Maybe he’s going to go full Bernard Hopkins and just (expletive) clinch and hit him in the clinch and tie him up and rough him up. Maybe that’s the plan. Lean on his neck, just fight dirty. Let them take points away, who gives a (expletive) as long as you don’t get disqualified.”
Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather Jr. will meet inside the boxing ring on Aug. 26 in the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
