Van Heerden Releases Sparring Footage With McGregor
Last year, Conor McGregor sparred welterweight boxer Chris van Heerden as the UFC champion was preparing for a rematch against Nate Diaz. The footage of the sparring session did not look good for McGregor, and now van Heerden has released more video evidence that McGregor’s boxing skills aren’t so impressive when he’s facing a real boxer.
When the news broke that Conor McGregor would be facing Floyd Mayweather in August, van Heerden took to Twitter with a clip from their sparring session.
"People telling me Mayweather will have his hands full trying to land on McGregor -STOP IT! I respect McGregor BUT i ain’t Floyd and i landed," the pro welterweight wrote.
