The gimmick labored as soon as with Mayweather and would possibly work once more. However it’s nonetheless simply one other gimmick. Is that what McGregor needs to cut back his profession to?
If he needs to field, he would possibly as effectively make it fascinating and tackle Mike Tyson or one thing. Now that PPV occasion that might set information.
