Boxing: Mayweather vs McGregor Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Not since Egghead Jr. has a chicken heart been so popular.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion Conor McGregor earned a boatload of respect from most of the combat sports world, including opponent Floyd Mayweather Jr., despite losing by tenth-round technical knockout last Saturday night in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Watch the replay here.

But two fighters who refuse to give “Notorious” any props for taking on one of the best boxers of all time are Jose Aldo and Rafael dos Anjos. The former was starched by McGregor at UFC 194 while the latter was forced to withdraw from a scheduled showdown at UFC 196.

I’ll let them take it from here.

Not sure what fight Dos Anjos was watching but McGregor made it 10 rounds.

It’s unlikely “Notorious” will have to deal with either Brazilian when he eventually makes his return to mixed martial arts (MMA) later this year. In addition to the winner of Tony Ferguson vs. Kevin Lee or maybe even Khabib Nurmagmedov, McGregor still has unfinished business with Nate Diaz.

And perhaps even this champion.
