Conor McGregor Vs Floyd Mayweather Faceoff ● Final Showdown ► Analysis
Well, it’s the calm before the storm would usually best describe the faceoff. But in this instance with Conor McGregor and Floyd “Money” Mayweather, it’s a storm in and of itself. We go inside the mind of McGregor as he details his own approach to the mental aspect of the sport.
Conor uses his perceived analysis of the way his opponent is feeling. So in his game of mental warfare, Conor gives his opponent more of the same to feel that way even more.
“Whether you call it mind games or whatever, I’m just getting an edge over everyone in there” – Conor McGregor
Knowing what he feels, he uses that to gain a mental edge over his opponents. Floyd has one of the strongest mental games in all combat. It can be seen in this instance as Conor and Floyd did their final face-off. That toward the end of the process. Floyd began to flinch and seemed unable to find the words to fend off the aggressive Irishman.
Verbal warfare is something which has been used by many of the great fighters. It sometimes, however, does not work on certain people. Take the current Bantamweight Champion Cody Garbrandt. During his fight with the reigning Champion Dominic Cruz. Garbrandt seems unfazed by Cruz’s in-fight verbal onslaught.
“I’m the best at trash-talking, I’m also the best at backing it up” – Floyd Mayweather
However, we have never before seen Floyd under such an attack. Following their final faceoff. Mayweather showed just a glimpse of the inner emotions he was feeling. Something even the most talented of trash talkers finds hard to hide.
But who is to say how this will actually affect the fight itself? Floyd had been an undefeated fighter for his entire career. Now going into his final fight against an unknown quantity. Who will prevail?
