The Irishman went straight for the crowd and his fans loved it.

"McGregor in a landslide!" said David Huddleston from Arkansas.

"A lot of hype -- a lot of back and forth. I hope he brings it home!" said John Wolfe from Washington D.C.

Boxing experts see the UFC star as a longshot. McGregor doesn't see it that way.

"I believe he will be unconscious inside one round, yeah!" said McGregor.

Mayweather fan David Alvarez took a week off of work to enjoy Fight Week and says a McGregor victory is only a dream.

"I don't expect a competitive fight this weekend. I think it will be a landslide for Mayweather," said Alvarez.

"If you are going to bet, bet it won't go," said Mayweather.

McGregor is confident he and his countrymen from Ireland will reign supreme.

"Vegas is Ireland, we will rule Las Vegas!" said McGregor.
