Video: Conor McGregor Gets Owned Sparring With A Boxer


All the talk about a possible fight between UFC sensation Conor McGregor and boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr has rekindled. All because the lightweight champion of the UFC received his boxing license from the State of California this week.

We all know it’s illogical for the fight to take place as MMA and boxing are still worlds apart. Regardless of what all the new fans of the UFC may think, their idol Conor McGregor would be destroyed in a boxing match. Not only a bout against Mayweather, but essentially with any professional boxer with a decent record.

And no, we are not ripping on McGregor just to bust your chops. Imagine a tennis player like Roger Federer trying to defeat a ping pong champion in a ping pong match. No matter how good Federer is at tennis, he just wouldn’t be able to use all his skills.

Here you can see the edited footage McGregor shared on his YouTube channel:

Looks pretty cool, right? Well, boxer Chris Van Heerden was not happy with the edited version shared by the Irish. So he shared one full unedited round from their session which paints a more accurate portrait of McGregor’s boxing skills against a boxer.

But, since we know you won’t just take our word for it, you can see it for yourself.
