McGregor has been talking a great fight in press conferences and predicts he'll put Mayweather on the canvas by the fourth round. "He's basically boxing a guy that is a UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) fighter and not a boxer". Is McGregor going to throw a kick because, obviously when he resorts to boxing and realises he is no match for Mayweather, what will he do? He got mauled. He got absolutely mauled in that fight.

Not many names - other than Paulie Malignaggi - have been mentioned as potential opponents for McGregor in the boxing ring, but he recently admitted that Manny Pacquiao is a name that could interest him down the line.

Brady said, "He believed in himself".

"I'm not like any other mixed martial artist".

If there's one obstacle that McGregor won't have to overcome as he prepares to face Mayweather, it's his own experience while performing under the brightest lights in the biggest events in the world.

He is the reigning UFC Lightweight champion, former Featherweight division champion and the first fighter in UFC history to hold two division titles simultaneously.

In the days leading up to the fight, McGregor has heard boxers, fellow MMA fighters and pundits from around the globe tell him that he has no shot to hand Mayweather his first professional loss.

The UFC man isn't best pleased by boxers, both past and present, writing off The Notorious this early, with most saying that an MMA background won't help him between the ropes.

In the special, we go to his roots in Dublin, Ireland. "Of my lifetime, of my team's lifetime", McGregor said.
