Conor McGregor Still Considers Himself a Double UFC Champion

Posted August 18, 2017

While the world awaits this month's keenly anticipated clash between boxing great Mayweather and UFC superstar McGregor, two other cross-discipline rivals have tried to muscle in on the limelight.

The showdown will be kicking off in the cinema as 11.45pm, with tickets costing €20 - not bad at all at all.

After the fight, Mayweather says he plans to focus exclusively on building out his multiple business ventures that include several clothing lines, training gear, makeup and even a new Las Vegas strip club called Girl Collection, which opened earlier this year. McGregor was a +500 underdog when the fight was announced on July 14.

McGregor got back in the spotlight by bringing up lighter gloves. "So I believe I will paint pictures in there that he has never seen or the boxing community has never seen before and that will cause him big trouble", said the Irishman.
