Shouldn't they fight twice to make it fair?

Once under boxing rules and again under MMA rules?

I mean, seems unfair. One has spent a career as a boxer and the other I don't think has ever boxed.


Floyd would get wrecked in MMA...he wants no part of that.


Yeah, but MacGregor is going to get destroyed in a boxing game esp against a technical fighter like Mayweather no?

I kind of feel like it is pitting a speed skater against a figure skater in a figure skating competition.


If by "destroyed" you mean "glove-tapped periodically while mostly avoided" then yes, probably.

Take the fight going the distance if you're going to put money down. Floyd by a boring decision.

"B-b-b-but Conor never boxed". Chin is a chin. That is an absolute. Conor's been smashed with a 4 oz glove. A 10 oz glove on a 40 year old with hand problems?

I think it goes the distance. Floyd clowns him. Conor's never in danger. Ever. EVER. We snooze. But we stay for the after show press conferences...

$300 millions for 12rd x 3 minutes = 36 minutes

That's like $8.3 million/min aka $138888 per SECOND

LOL. Exactly what I was thinking. Go a few rounds, get some shots in... then back up and bust a flying knee Mayweather in the chops. Lights out!


I'd pay to watch that lol


They'd definitely have stipulations int he contract that would cost McG dearly if he did that.

What I think he CAN try to get away with is when Floyd inevitably grabs him...I'd just do a subtle hip toss and put him on his ass. Knowing Conor he'd do a "what, who me?" type of look and pretend like it was an accent (albeit, knowing Conor he'll give that knowing smile). He's gotta do something crazy but subtle to get Floyd thinking.


Dana was asked about this during last night's conference call. Conor won't do anything egregious for fear of a massive lawsuit. However, I agree that I wouldn't put it past Conor to play mind games with Floyd if they ever get tied up.

It's a joke, it's a circus, but so what? Should be fun as hell. These are two of the best (bleep) talkers of this generation. Hopefully, they have many press conferences.


Conor's next level (bleep) talker. Brutal cuts but makes everyone laugh with him all the same. That's final form type of (bleep) talking. Rest of it is amateur hour.


Yup. This is one area where Conor wins hands down.

I figure about 9 rounds of getting out boxed before McGregor kicks him in the head.

No

Why does everyone keep asking this?

This fight has nothing to do with who is the better boxer or fighter. Just about the $$$

This is so fake as a professional event, right up there with man vs horse 100 yard dash.

That was a farce. James Bolt was past him prime, only won silver in the Olympics. Not saying he'd win but suppose the man had been Usain Bolt in his prime?

I bet there's some kind of handshake agreement where Mayweather is not to try to completely humiliate Connor.

Bolt would have to run on horse racing turf.

He gets no boxing cred for beating what amounts to an amateur

I see McGregor going Victor Ortiz on Floyd, except he'll land the headbutt heavily, clinch, throw knees and elbows, and try to get in as many illegal blows in before the ref can step in...

This ish is such a crock. No way I'm buying.

I don't see why Mayweather can't knock him out since this should be the least experienced boxer he has fought in his 49 fights. The guys he beat on boring decisions were far more experienced boxers and sometimes were even world champions.

Nobody would have ever done this against Tyson 20-30 years ago. They would have been worried that Tyson would literally kill them.
