CONOR MCGREGOR shared a photo on Instagram landing a “peach” of an uppercut as his mega-fight against Floyd Mayweather edges closer.
And former UFC team-mate Brendan Schaub is bucking the trend of most who give him no chance by backing him for £78,500.
But before you choke on your coffee, it isn’t to win the fight. Schaub thinks McGregor can win a round.
Schaub was a special guest on talkshow the Big Brown Takedown, where the highly-anticipated showdown was the main talk of the time.
Schaub admitted he had “bet $100,000” with boxing commentator Max Kellerman that The Notorious could “win a round”.
On the talkshow he said: “I bet Max Kellerman $100,000 that Conor McGregor wins a round and will touch him. Obviously, the touch him one’s a joke, but he will win a round, people will be surprised.
“He’s going to be so much longer, his jab’s going to land early on, from so many different angles.
“I’m not saying he’s going to out-jab the f*** out of him. He’s going to land some jabs. Floyd is going to adjust quick.
“Floyd’s going to be like, ‘Oh f***, I didn’t realise he was going to be that quick!’
“He’s going to bully him the way [Marcos] Maidana did. He’s going to bully him for a little bit.”
SunSport reported late last night how tickets have gone on sale for Mayweather vs McGregor – and it could set you back nearly £13,500.
After a year of speculation and trash talking, the billion dollar fight finally got the go ahead on Wednesday.
Both fighters have been flirting with the idea of the match up for months before in first for combat sports that would bring the biggest name in boxing vs the largest name in MMA.
