Randy Couture at The Herd (Vía youtube)

UFC legend Randy Couture, who was a boxer in the Navy, has given UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor a 10-percent chance of winning against Floyd Mayweather on August 26.

We are less than two weeks away from the most anticipated fight in combat sports history and the predictions are coming thick and fast. “The Natural” featured on “The Herd with Colin Cowherd” and expressed his opinion about the sparring video where the Irishman allegedly knocked down Paulie Malignaggi during a sparring session.

“I definitely see two guys sparring,” Couture said on The Herd with Colin Cowherd. “[But] I’m kind of questioning why there’s an official referee in his uniform there. That’s not a usual thing for a sparring workout.”

Regardless of whether the knockdown of Malignaggi was legitimate or not, Couture believes that McGregor has almost no chance of winning the fight.

“I give Conor a one in ten chance of winning this fight,” Couture said. “He’s unorthodox, he’s a southpaw, he’s not gonna throw things that Floyd’s used to seeing, he’s younger, and he’s a little bigger. Those are all positives for Conor, but at the end of the day, he’s still competing in a pure boxing match against one of the pound-for-pound best technical, best defensive fighters that we’ve seen in a long, long time.”

Couture is no stranger to boxing and MMA crossover fights.

On August 28 in 2010, Couture faced off against the three-time world champion boxer James Toney, marking the second time a professional boxer competed in MMA (the first was Art Jamison).

Couture dispatched Toney in the very first round via arm triangle that gave him not only the victory but also his black belt in submission wrestling.
