Joe Rogan reveals how the ‘much bigger’ Conor McGregor starches Floyd Mayweather in a UFC vs boxing super fight

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is just two days removed from its UFC Fight Night 106 mixed martial arts (MMA) event (results), which took place last Saturday night on FOX Sports 1 in Brazil.

It featured a breakout performance from ex-welterweight contender Kelvin Gastelum (see it), as well as another blistering knockout from PRIDE legend and former UFC 205-pound titleholder Mauricio Rua (video).

But why focus on that crap when we can instead regurgitate another “story” about Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather? We can’t and we won’t, which is why I turn the mic over to UFC color commentator Joe Rogan, helpfully transcribed by MMA Fighting.

He can make that 145-pound cut when he’s on death’s door, but Mayweather makes it easy.”

The case for Mayweather can be found here.

UFC President Dana White, who previously made a “real offer” to both camps, has long since rescinded his proposition and now insists McGregor will fight Tony Ferguson once “Notorious” returns from his self-imposed hiatus.
