Training partner of MMA fighter Conor Mcgregor, Aisling Daly has revealed that Mcgregor has always been a fan of his fighting rival Floyd Mayweather.
In an interview with the media, as their purported fight draws closer, she revealed;
“It was a tumultuous one. At the end of that first session our coach John Kavanagh took him and put manners on him. He was arrogant, the same way he is now with the swagger, probably thinking this MMA stuff was easy.
“So John took him down to the mat straight away and controlled all the positions on the ground. He just incapacitated him, landing a few stingy shots. Conor had respect after that round.
“He’s always been a massive Mayweather fan,” says Daly with a smile. “He’d be coaching, showing us punch combinations and videos and he showed us the Mayweather pull-counter.
“Now he’s in a position where one of his idols is his rival. Knowing Conor, he will believe he is his equal.”
Aisling Daly who is a former MMA fighter, has been Conor’s training partner since his early career days.
