McGregor may have gotten off to a slow start on the Mayweather vs. McGregor world tour but he came out the blocks for the second leg like a champion.
The duo met for the first time yesterday at the Staples Center in Las Vegas with both involved in heated exchanges.
McGregor wore a white Gucci mink coat and raised a steel chair high over his head during a press conference at Madison Square Garden in November to promote his last UFC fight. It's also in 2016 when McGregor called Nick Diaz "cholo gangster from the hood".
"He's 40 years of age carrying a schoolbag on stage".
McFaul, a McGregor fan, said he'll watch the fight with friends to split the $99.95 bill for the high-definition pay-per-view. "I've known you for 21 years". One shot is all it takes me.
He said: "I would agree with some of the online scores, I'd say 10-9 for Floyd in round one".More news: Donald Trump Is Being Sued For Blocking His Critics On Twitter

The tension between boxing legend Floyd Mayweather and UFC superstar Conor McGregor boiled over into Toronto on Wednesday as the global stars continued their blockbuster World Tour to announce their August 26 showdown on SHOWTIME PPV from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
When Mayweather finally joined him on stage, there was a face off more intense and verbal than anything we saw in Los Angeles. Social media immediately went into an uproar about it. The 28-year-old was clearly basking in the moment as McGregor was suited and booted when he hit the stage. Mayweather continued bringing money into play, telling his opponent, "If you believe in yourself like you say you believe in yourself, bet your whole fight check you b--".
The much awaited battle between McGregor and Mayweather is all set to take place on August 26. "I agree that Mayweather-Pacquiao was a very big fight".
"My jiu-jitsu coach Fabio (Prado) always says, 'Enjoy life, '" Calvillo said.
Mayweather fired right back and grabbed an Irish Tricolour from the crowd.
And while the combo of Mayweather and McGregor are younger, more agile and quantifiably more handsome than Jagger and Richards, the guarantee of entertainment complete with the potential for a backstage boxing match is always on the table.
