The pre-fight prattle will be like Ric Flair vs. The Rock dipped in Stone Cold Steve Austin. Mayweather’s mic work is tremendous, and McGregor’s is even better. McGregor can’t out-box Mayweather, but he can out-talk him.

McGregor, in fact, will be able to talk the citizens into thinking he’s got a chance. That's a key component to this fight.
