Mayweather vs. McGregor: Sylvester Stallone Says Who He's Backing

The impending fight between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather has everyone talking. Even legendary actor, and Rocky star, Sylvester Stallone is weighing in.

TMZ caught up with Stallone and asked him who his bet is on.

He said that thinks Conor McGregor has good odds against Floyd Mayweather, and then went on to joke, "Then again, I live my life in fantasy."

Stallone is, as you can imagine, a huge boxing fan, but what you may not know is that he also is a minority owner in the UFC.

The 70-year-old actor added, "I always have the underdog."
