Conor McGregor: “If I Fought Floyd Mayweather, I’d Kill Him In Less Than 30 Seconds”

“The Notorious” Conor McGregor continues to make headlines for his outlandish statements, the latest of which was directed at boxing’s pound-for-pound king, Floyd Mayweather.

In a recent interview, McGregor explained why he feels Mayweather couldn’t last 30 seconds in a fight with him.

“I don’t look at a man who’s expert in one area as a specialist,” McGregor told Esquire. “I look at him as a rookie in ten other areas.”

“If you can box, what happens if I grab hold of your legs? If you put me face-to-face with Floyd Mayweather-pound-for-pound boxing’s best-if I fought Floyd, I would kill him in less than thirty seconds.”

McGregor continued, “I would take me less than thirty seconds to wrap around him like a boa constrictor and strangle him.”

McGregor challenges UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo for the UFC Featherweight Championship at UFC 189 on Saturday, July 11, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
