The Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor fight card at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday night is the talk of the sporting world and everyone is speaking their thoughts on how they believe the fight will play out.

Cincinnati Bengals defensive end Carlos Dunlap is in the Mayweather camp and says it’s a no brainer that the boxer who has won five different titles in five different divisions will win on Saturday night.

Dunlap also had an interesting comparison for why Mayweather will win, likening it to LeBron James attempting to play in the NFL.

“For me, I think it’s simply a no brainer,” Dunlap said. “I don’t care who it is. If you take the greatest person from whatever sport.... LeBron... whoever it is and ask him to come pass rush for the Cincinnati Bengals, I don’t think they can do it better than me. And this ain’t about LeBron because he’s one of the greatest to ever do it...

“Asking McGregor to step into the ring, not the octagon and win this fight, that’s crazy. And to win it in under four rounds like he said. That’s crazy.”

Fellow Bengals player, tight end Tyler Eifert is on the other side of the fence, and going with McGregor tonight:

So to Eifert and anyone bettering against Mayweather (and there are TONS of people betting against Mayweather), Dunlap thinks you’re crazy.
