Jorge recalled the fight saying, “When he [Floyd Mayweather] fought Diego ‘Chico’ Corrales which is one of my favorite fights. There was nothing Diego could hit.” Jorge also said, “That’s the Mayweather that I think nobody could possibly beat.”
Joe then talks about how ‘unfortunate’ it is that the fans won’t get a prime Mayweather fighting prime Manny Pacquiao and how their fight went with Pacquiao’s shoulder injury. To which, Masvidal says “I just wish the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight would have taken place many years before.” To that, Joe agreed and said “Well, it also took place when Manny went into the fight with a f***ed up shoulder“
Rogan also touches on how ‘smart’ Floyd is by saying “He[Floyd] has these MMA guys lined up. He goes over and fights these exhibitions, it’s amazing.” Jorge also talks about Floyd’s disciplined lifestyle, he said “I heard he lives a very disciplined life, doesn’t drink, doesn’t smoke. He’ll wake up and train and it hasn’t left his system.”
