Be it is his fight against one of the greatest boxers of all time in Floyd Mayweather or his very first fight in the UFC, ‘Mystic Mac’ has always predicted how the fight would unfold according to him. 

While in most cases results have gone his way, which makes him seem untouchable. It is in the fights that don’t go his way that the bold predictions are then made fun of.
