The UFC star went toe-to-toe with the unbeaten boxing legend in 2017, who many think about one of many biggest ever fighters to step within the ring.
McGregor had by no means competed in an expert boxing match till he took on Mayweather and was convincingly overwhelmed by the vastly skilled American.
The combat was a large money-maker and sparked a stop-start profession for McGregor in MMA.
The Irishman returns to motion this weekend at UFC 246 and within the newest ‘Embedded’ episode, he explains how he hates watching his punching methodology in that bout.
‘I actually look at the Mayweather [fight], the shots on the bag and the way I was punching and I actually can’t even watch that,’ McGregor mentioned.
‘I shiver when I see the way I was throwing my punches back then. I just wasn’t sitting proper on them, simply floating via the air.
‘Now I’m stepping into positions and sitting in. Got to undergo the whole lot to study, to actually study. Experience is the very best instructor of all.’
McGregor takes on Donald Cerrone in his comeback combat, in a conflict he is anticipated to win.
The 31-year-old has promised to finish his interval of inactivity and hopes to combat thrice in 2020.
Dana White has already confirmed McGregor is in line to win a rematch with light-weight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov if he can beat Cerrone.
‘Here’s the factor, realistically, Conor consider Khabib versus Tony Ferguson is not going to occur,’ White mentioned.
‘We’ve tried to try this combat many, many occasions. Conor believes it received’t occur.
‘Conor wanted to do this fight at 170 because he wants to turn right around and jump in and fight Khabib if that [Ferguson] fight doesn’t occur.
‘So again, we’ll see how this performs out. We’ll see what occurs after this. But Conor could be very targeted on that rematch with Khabib.’
