The consensus is that Floyd Mayweather will move his record to 50-0 when he boxes Conor McGregor next month, but Demetrious Johnson believes his fellow UFC champ will prevail August 26th.
Recently TMZ caught up with the flyweight champ and asked Johnson for his thoughts on Mayweather – McGregor. The renowned fighter had this take on the all-star fight (quote via Bloody Elbow):
“I’m riding with Conor,” Johnson said. “I think Conor, he can probably get it done sooner if he goes out there being ferocious, but I’m going with Conor. I think Conor’s gonna get the job done.”
Johnson’s next bout, meanwhile, has yet to be confirmed, but it’s expected he’ll take on Ray Borg.
