A year after Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor had their fight at the T-Mobile Arena, Mayweather wants to help McGregor prepare for his UFC return against Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Mayweather was asked by TMZ about their upcoming UFC 229 showdown on October 6th, and would pass a warning to the current UFC lightweight champion.
“Conor’s not gonna back down and he’s not a scared fighter at all, win, lose or draw,” Mayweather said at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City … “Conor gonna come to fight.”
“I know that UFC got a training facility but we’d like for him to work out at the Mayweather Boxing Club.”
When asked if who he’d pick to see walk out as lightweight champion on October 6th, it seemed that Mayweather was leaning towards his last opponent.
“I don’t really have a prediction because I’ve never seen the guy fight that’s facing Conor McGregor,” Mayweather told TMZ Cameras. “From what I know he’s a hell of a guy that’s on the ground — hell of a grappler — and he can wrestle.”
“But, the fans want to see you stand up and fight. That’s what the fans like to see. But, Conor McGregor, he’s a tough competitor, like I said before Conor McGregor’s not gonna back down from anyone, he’s not scared, he’s a warrior.”
