UFC commentator Joe Rogan recently discussed the highly anticipated boxing match between Floyd “Money” Mayweather and UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor.
On a recent episode of his podcast, Rogan agreed with UFC President Dana White on what will happen if McGregor somehow defeats Mayweather.
“If he knocks out Floyd Mayweather, he is the biggest athlete of all time,” Rogan said. “If he knocks out Floyd Mayweather he is probably the most popular athlete of all time. He might be at Muhammad Ali levels.”
White has also come out and said McGregor would become the most popular athlete in the universe if he defeats the all-time boxing great.
Earlier on his show, Rogan admitted Mayweather will most likely win the fight due to the fight taking place under boxing rules.
McGregor will be making his professional debut, while Mayweather will be putting his perfect 49-0 boxing record on the line against the UFC champion.
Mayweather vs. McGregor will take place Saturday, August 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
