For one, this is a fight between the world’s biggest MMA star and the best defensive boxer of all-time.
Secondly, it’s happening in a boxing ring in a sport the challenger has never competed in professionally. Thirdly, there was a world tour which was more like a Rolling Stones’ concert, than a rolling bones fight.
You get our point – this is like nothing we have never seen before, so therefore it is unsurprising that the betting involved is also like nothing we have ever seen before. There will be billions of dollars placed on this fight and at the moment, Floyd Mayweather is the heavy favourite against Conor McGregor.
Brendan Schaub Bet
One man who is backing McGregor is former UFC heavyweight, Brendan Schaub. Schaub, who also works for Showtime and will be covering the fight for them has even gone so far to make a spectacularly bizarre bet which should he lose may become as famous as the fight.
The ex-heavyweight has bet that he will McGregor will win at least one round – he has placed $100,000 on this, but that’s not the bizarre bit. The former UFC fighter has doubled down on the bet stating that if he loses, he will send a d*ck pic to the guys he is placing the bet with – HBO commentator Max Kellerman.
“His team, I don’t think, is going to take the bet,” he said. “They went, ‘Are you serious about it?” I said, “I will transfer the money directly into a joint account right now’,” Schaub told The Kicker.
“Because he’s saying Conor won’t land a punch or win a round. You’re crazy. [McGregor]’s gonna land multiple punches. I guarantee it.”
He added: “[McGregor will win] at least one [round]. I wouldn’t be surprised if he wins two to three [rounds], early on. If you’re going to bet on it, you look at the odds, you need to bet in the first two rounds that Conor knocks him out, if you’re trying to make bank, bro.
Brendan Schaub Dick Pic
“I will send you guys a d**k pic if it doesn’t go all 12 rounds.” So, there you have it – possibly the most interesting bet that is being placed on Conor McGregor v Floyd Mayweather.
In terms of faith, there aren’t too many who would do what Schaub is doing. It certainly shows he believes in McGregor… either that or he has a slight exhibitionist streak in him.
Either way, this is one of the most interesting bets out there at the moment. We don’t think our local bookie would take the bet – that’s for sure!
