“He’s gonna throw some things around that Floyd’s not going to be used to."
Although every boxing expert and Vegas sportsbook has the 49-0 Floyd Mayweather as a heavy favorite over the UFC champ, that's not going to deter many people from purchasing the fight for $100 on PPV.
Still, there are some that aren't completely counting out McGregor. For instance, Idris Elba believes McGregor can give Floyd the first loss of his career.
Appearing on ESPN's First Take, Elba explained that he thinks McGregor is going to come at Floyd with some unconventional techniques that he has never seen before, which will allow him to land a punch and possibly pick up the unexpected victory.
“He’s gonna throw some things around that Floyd’s not going to be used to. If Floyd does what he does normally, which is just hold a tight fight, I think McGregor’s going to topple that, strike him. If he gets one on his chin, it could be over.”
We'll find out soon enough.
