I've not followed the hype so far but can't avoid it at this point. I hate them both.

Hope it ends like this.

    Would that be considered a draw? We could do it again for twice the $$$

    Who's the good guy and who's the bad guy?
    That's how it worked in Rocky, right?
    There is no crisis that a good cigar can't cure.

    Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cigars and that's close enough.

    They're both idiots in my opinion. Won't watch it for that kind of money. I did find it funny that there is a prop bet on whether or not McGregor will get DQed for switching to MMA at some point in the fight. That's what I'd bet on.

    Conor lasted ten rounds, which is more than I would have predicted. I doubt Mayweather would last one round of MMA. I don't get these comments such as "I hate them both" and "They're both idiots" and such. It's show biz; not astrophysics. Nasty weigh-ins, lotsa yomamma, then best buds after the fight, is the way it's done.  
    “It has been a source of great pain to me to have met with so many among [my] opponents who had not the liberality to distinguish between political and social opposition; who transferred at once to the person, the hatred they bore to his political opinions.” —Thomas Jefferson (1808)



    Unmitigated risk aversion is the new Puritanism; complete with witch hunts funny outfits and humorless preachers thundering doom. The Deity is Safety; Satan is a Lawyer; but the object is the same: to suck the life out of life and tell you how to live it.

    Are you saying they hyped the fight? Gee wiz! Do they really do that?

    For a couple hundred million I suppose I would throw mama under the bus a couple times.

    The problem is Conor isn't good. Not even by basic standards. The only thing he has is aggression. Which anywhere that's not an MMA ring is gonna wind up getting his ass handed to him. Just like Mayweather did. MMA is about punching someone a few times then rolling around with them on the floor in their underwear. Take off the UFC stuff from channels put on Gay "P o r n" and I guarantee the fans won't know the difference. You find me an MMA guy who can actually "Fight" and I will show you a 3 legged unicorn that died saving the Earth from the might of Cthulu.

    I'm going to respectfully disagree with you Crisius. Guys and gals who practice mixed martial can "fight" a lot better than a person who studies only boxing. If Conor and Floyd had met in the octagon with full MMA rules then Conor would have won easily once he took Floyd down to the canvas and submitted him. Floyd knew that too.

    Maybe. Mayweather is built for the long game and has tons of stamina. Conor is used to exploding, since mma matches are meant to be very short. I've been doing martial arts for 20 years now. Started with TKD which I hold a 2nd degree black in, have practiced and sparred with many people over the years from Krav Maga, Kung Fu, Jeet Kune Do, and many others.

    Here I work security for the Cage matches and have had to throw out quite a few fighters who have gotten rowdy after matches because they are still pumped on adrenaline. And frankly no matter the level, professional or amateur, there is not a single MMA fighter out their worth their weight in piss. Could I beat all of them? Probably not. Am I better? Maybe, maybe not. But frankly I hate the entire sport, and McGregor is ALWAYS a blow hard. Not a lick of honor in the "man", and I'm loathe to call him a "man" to begin with.
