I know I am in the minority here, but I'm rooting for the minority here. I just think Conor McGregor's incessant, over the top trash talk is going to get pretty fucking old as this "fight" grows closer. I love senseless bickering and unsubstantiated machismo as much as the next guy, but it packs a much bigger punch (pun intended) when there's higher than a snow ball's chance in hell that it gets validated. I get that most people are on the side of the self absorbed loudmouth that stands just north of virtually no shot whatso-fucking-ever of beating the wealthier, more accomplished self absorbed loudmouth. I just really don't know if I can take two months worth of potshots seriously when they come from a guy whose dream sequence of a mural could come to fruition and he would still probably lose.
Honestly, Conor McGregor could catch Floyd Mayweather clean across the jaw (as pictured) and it would probably go down as nothing more than one punch landed on the scorecard that was immediately responded to with a quick 20 jab combo that had it's recipient looking like he took a full bottle of Jameson off the forehead. All due respect to the artist, but it's for that reason - and that reason only - that I am having a tough time keeping my eyes from traveling up into my head and right back down in response to thee most lifelike portrayal of a chin check that is more than more than likely never going to take place. I don't need (or want, for that matter) athletes in combats sports to turn humble because then this fight would offer almost nothing in terms of entertainment, but the grossness with which the wall of that training facility misrepresents the upcoming fight is almost too egregious to laugh at. Plus, I'm pretty sure 'Benjamin Moore' would have donated those cans of paint to literally any respectable cause if they knew they were going to be wasted on something that needed to be quickly coated over come August 27th.
