- He didn’t truly understand the game of boxing. In MMA the game is totally different.
- He played right into Mayweather’s strategy from the very beginning. Another words the fight started months before they actually stepped into the ring. Looking back on all the events that took place, you can see Mayweather giving the impression that McGregor is going to railroad him.
