Conor McGregor Salutes Floyd Mayweather + Admits 12 Rounds Is A Challenge

Conor McGregor is saluting Floyd Mayweather for his big win last weekend in Las Vegas.

Mayweather continued his winning streak when he whooped McGregor’s behind in one of the biggest fights of the year. The 50-0 undefeated champ is now being praised by his opponent for being “methodical in his work.”

In a statement released via Instagram on Wednesday, the MMA fighter suggested that Floyd’s “experience, his patience and his endurance won him this fight hands down. I always told him he was not a fighter but a boxer. But sharing the ring with him he is certainly a solid fighter.”

The statement continued, “Strong in the clinch. Great understanding of frames and head position. He has some very strong tools he could bring into an MMA game for sure.”

He added, “Here is a toast of whiskey to everyone involved in this event and everyone who enjoyed it!”

As for why McGregor got weak and turned into a noodle by the 10th round, the athlete claims there just wasn’t enough training time. “We started slowly getting to the 12 and decreasing the stress in the rounds the closer it got to 12. I think for the time we had, 10 weeks in camp, it had to be done this way,” he explained in the statement.

“If I began with a loaded 12 rounds under much stress I would have only hit a brick wall and lost progress as a result and potentially not made the fight,” he wrote. “A little more time and we could have made the 12 cleanly, while under more stress, and made it thru the later rounds in the actual fight.”
