It looks like all that betting money on Conor McGregor is justified after all. I apologize to McGregor and his entire team and family.
Because the final word has come in, and it's not exceptionally charitable to McGregor's opponent, boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. That's right. Justin Bieber has weighed in.
In a new video from TMZ Sports, Bieber is asked by a quote-hungry paparazzo whether Mayweather will score a knockout on the UFC champion, who is making his pro boxing debut.
"I don't think so," comes Bieber's reply, before trying to soften it with, "I think it'll be a good fight."
I see you, though, Justin. Pretty cold-blooded stuff, given that you've walked to the ring with Mayweather and The Money Team before. Is there more to the story? Did they break up? I hope TMZ Sports keeps an eye on this.
McGregor is currently a +350 underdog (bet $100 to win $350) in the fight, according to OddsShark. He faces Mayweather August 26 in Las Vegas.
