Dana White very recently spoke with MMAJunkie.com and Dana theorized how Chuck Liddell would fair in a mega fight with a top level boxer like Conor McGregor has in Floyd Mayweather Jr. on August 26th.
It’s very much the same, except for the fact that Chuck was fighting in mixed martial arts. I think the different thing I was thinking about was the ring. They were fighting in a ring. But other than that, it was the same sport at least. He wasn’t going up against the greatest boxer of all time.
I’ve been saying this all along: For all the people who come out and say he doesn’t belong here, this fight’s ridiculous and everything else, when he knocks Floyd Mayweather out on Saturday, what are all these naysayers…They’re going to say Floyd was too old. It’s going to be a whole other set of excuses. Get ready. Remember I told you that. A whole other set of excuses when he knocks him out.
I’m nervous, but Conor’s the guy for this job. He really is the guy for this job. I call him ‘The Unicorn,’ man. I’ve never dealt with anybody like this guy. … Pressure? It’s almost like when he shines the most. When the most pressure is on him he shines the most. He’s a very unique, special individual, and I’m very much looking forward to it.
Dana truly believes that Conor is going to knockout Floyd Mayweather Jr. this Saturday. What do you think?
