Conor McGregor plans to rule fight game with 'iron fist'

Conor McGregor plans to rule fight game with 'iron fist'

The least expensive ticket listed on reseller StubHub is going for an eye-watering $1675 with two weeks to go until the August 26 fight which pits undefeated boxer Mayweather against the UFC's lightweight champion in a 12-round super welterweight matchup. He also said McGregor booked a 12-round session one day after Malignaggi flew across the country, in order to catch him while he was jet-lagged.

UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor has been training hard for his upcoming boxing match against Floyd Mayweather Jr., and there's footage to prove it.

UFC president Dana White released several videos on Friday of McGregor sparring with Paulie Malignaggi.

Malignaggi, 36, denied McGregor knocked him down with a punch, telling ESPN he was "shoved down". "And I'll rule over both (boxing and MMA) with an iron fist - an iron left fist", he told reporters. He was certainly badly concussed. Malignaggi felt the picture was a misleading representation of a sparring session and called McGregor "one of the biggest scumbags I've ever met".




"Sparring partners who were [staying] in the house with him were anxious about him". The sparring partners were actually telling us when he was dropped back at the home that he was stumbling out of the vehicle after the 12-rounder. Multiple times, the ropes kept him on his feet.

"If you look at all of Floyd's past opponents, they have all feared him, they have all given him respect". Now he's retired, I mean, I don't know what he expected coming in here after speaking what he was speaking, I mean the things he was saying. It didn't go well for him.

One seller on the Vivid Seats website has listed a pair of ringside seats for the contest at a staggering $164,043 each, but Papp says that prices in secondary markets are likely to come down closer to the event. "It presented itself and he dived all over it".
