UFC star Conor McGregor is confident that in a rematch with Floyd Mayweather Jr., he’d have enough stamina to do the job on him to hand him his first loss of his career.

McGregor notes that he was doing well earlier in the fight by showing Mayweather things that he’d never seen before during his career. After he gassed out, the Mayweather took over and got the victory.

Mayweather stopped McGregor in the 10th round in their fight on August 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Mayweather-McGregor fight was televised on Showtime pay-per-view at a price of $100 per household.

While some boxing fans and MMA fans thought the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight was exciting and worth the money they spent on it, many other fans felt it was a dull affair with fighting at one-quarter speed, walking around at a slow pace to keep McGregor in the fight long enough to make it somewhat entertaining.

McGregor says he’s not going to start calling out the 40-year-old Mayweather for a rematch. Instead of doing that, McGregor says he’ll wait and see how Mayweather manages his fortune.

McGregor believes that Mayweather only chose to fight him due to him having money problems. If Mayweather burns through his fortune with wild spending and bad investments, he could wind up asking for a rematch with McGregor.

“I know if I went another go with him under boxing rules I’d get that win,” said McGregor via the ”Honestly, I feel with just a little change in certain areas of the prep, we could have built the engine for 12 full rounds under stress, and got the better result on the night,” said McGregor on his Instagram.
