Video: Floyd Mayweather just revealed his wrestling game and now Conor McGregor fanboys are freaking out

Hey, remember all those smug Conor McGregor fanboys who were laughing at the idea of Floyd Mayweather Jr. making the transition to mixed martial arts (MMA)?

They won’t even crack a smile after this bombshell.

Turns out Mayweather will not be susceptible to the ground game as we initially thought, because the undefeated pugilist — gearing up for this rematch — is already a seven (out of ten) when it comes to the wrestling department.

“I can wrestle. My wrestling game is not that bad,” Mayweather told TMZ Sports. “On a scale from one to 10, I would say it’s probably a seven. We can take it up to a nine, if possible. Of course my hand game, on a scale of one to 10, it’s 100. The kicking game, on a scale from one to 10, it’s probably a four. We have to tweak a few things to take things to the next level.”

How did Mayweather suddenly become a great wrestler?

Probably all those notes he got from UFC welterweight champion and two-time Division-1 All-American Tyron Woodley, who is expected to train Mayweather for his in-cage debut later this year, or perhaps first-quarter 2019. And if he can get those kicks up to at least a six, then McGregor will probably get knocked out for a second time.

When that happens, all we can do is hope “Notorious” doesn’t get brain damage.
