Not everyone over at the UFC is behind the champ-champ Conor McGregor. In fact, one of the new shareholders of the company believes Conor will lost to Floyd come fight night.
Mark Wahlberg, one of the celebrity owners of the UFC, doesn’t think UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor will do well in his professional boxing debut.
In a recent interview, Wahlberg said McGregor will struggle in the ring against Floyd “Money” Mayweather.
Last week, Mayweather and McGregor agreed to compete in a 12-round boxing match. The two will fight at 154 pounds.
Mayweather vs. McGregor will take place Aug. 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Mayweather will be ending his brief two-year retirement to fight the UFC champion. Mayweather is currently undefeated with 49 wins, while McGregor has never fought in a professional boxing match. However, McGregor is on a two-fight win streak in the UFC.
Wahlberg is among a long list of celebrities to be partial owners of the UFC. The list includes Conan O’Brien, Tom Brady, Ben Affleck, Guy Fieri, Jimmy Kimmel, Adam Levine, Sylvester Stallone, and LL Cool J.
