The Hint

The UFC lightweight champion McGregor and the boxing legend Mayweather recently kicked off a world press tour. Their second stop in Toronto, Canada instantly became even more insane than their first stop.

Somewhere along the line, however, McGregor hinted that the fans may not expect what he plans to bring to the ring on August 26th.

Speaking to a group of media, he hinted at the use of a Karate stance or a Capoeira stance. That is definitely interesting and something worth taking note of.

While a lot of McGregor’s usual Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)-the only type of strikes is banned from boxing, the Irishman still has leeway in his movement and style of fighting.

Possible Advantage

McGregor won’t be able to use his elbows, his knees, or kicks in the upcoming match. But he could adopt a swaying stance like that seen in Capoeira or a narrow Karate-style stance.

That would be something Mayweather may have never seen that sort of movement before in a match. Nor he may be prepared for it.

This isn’t far out of the imagination. And it certainly is legal, although exceptionally unorthodox.

After all, Conor is NOT a boxer, but a martial artist; and while we’re at it, one of the best to ever do it.

McGregor Continues Roasting Mayweather

On top of all this, McGregor continued his roast of Mayweather on stage.

Below are some of his best bits:

“I’m 28 years old and I’m getting fight cheques and promoter cheques. When Floyd was 28 he was on Oscar de la Hoya’s under card. Floyd is an old, weak b****. He’s never fought a day in his life; he’s a runner, he’s boxing’s biggest b****.”
