"I think [my grandfather] would have liked it, especially when McGregor was in featherweight in the UFC, when he fought [Jose] Aldo, throughout his reign, he would have liked it, especially Connor's Crap talk," says Ali Walsh.

"Poppy started talking nonsense. That would have been very entertaining. I think she must have really liked the game."

Muhammad was also known for his razor-sharp tongue as well as his amazing skill in the square circle.

Connors may be a bit more obscene, but they are pretty much the same when it comes to getting into his opponent's head. Ali made Talking Trash cool.

Ali Walsh is a fighter just like his grandfather, but unlike his brother Nico, he chose mixed martial arts (MMA).

Biaggio is new to the sport and has an amateur record of 1-1. After losing his first bout, he returned to win via a first-round TKO.

On November 25, Ali-Walsh will make his Professional Fighters League debut, and fittingly, it will take place at Madison Square Garden.
