So who is even watching? Interested? Going as far as purchasing the PPV event?

Mayweather has been boxing his whole life and is called a defensive genius. He is 12 time champ and has a 49-0 fighting record.

Conor McGregor has been fighting is whole life, but ended up eventually going the MMA route and then to the UFC. He fights jiu-jitsu. was also a champ in 2 classes in his former league. His record is 24-3 - but has never boxed before - but in the MMA he KO's many while standing because he's got awesome standing/punching skills.

Mayweather is a HUGE favorite for the fight, obviously. I still think McGregor makes a bit of a fight of it though. I'm not sure Mayweather can KO him, as Conor is a tough SOB. But I don't think Conor can do anything either, and Mayweather outpoints him easily.

I 'think' if we do so any type of KO it will be Conor getting lucky. Or maybe a TKO of some sort because Conor gets flustered and then kicks Floyd in his face! :laugh:

I won't be watching it. I'll wait to hear the news like I always do. Wish I could watch it. Conor needs to SHUT Mayweather's Pie Hole. I'm tired of listening to both of them...MAKING MONEY, and pulling the wool over everybody's eyes.

I think it has been pre-planned already for the RE-MATCH, where they will both make MILLIONS MORE, while they laugh at how foolish all of the Betting crowd has become.

I'll say...CONOR...KO's May weather with a KICK, or one PUNCH.

Since he does MMA, I assume he can box some. The sporting verson of jiu-jitso is ju-do, and a grappling art.

I'd let Mayweather kick my ass for that payday. He can always then saw it was a boxing match so he can keep his street creds.

If Conor uses ANY mma moves - the fight is over and he's instantly DQ'd, and will lose a LOT of his money, and up to losing it ALL depending on what he does. He had better NOT do anything but box! LOL

McGregor is damn good at standup boxing, but he's never been in a boxing ring!!!

But I understand he has a chance to make approximately $100 million - win or lose!

JIM. Honestly. I wasn't aware of that. I haven't really paid any attention to what rules they would be using. All I've heard, a few times, was a discussion about the Gloves.

I think I'll stick with Conor anyway. I just can't stand Mayweather's big mouth.

LOLIt's NOT hard to slip up. Something as simple as going from a match where you can kick to the legs and one where you can't. Or throwing a backfist instead of a jab. That will up McGregor's stress level for sure. Only takes one second to slip, especially if you get in trouble.

Agreed. He brought in a world class boxing referee, and went overboard in training to ensure he did everything even possible to prepare to enter the ring, and know 100% of the rules, and understand all the limitations.

But agreed, a quick elbow, quick kick to the calf, or the worst would be a head kick. But I think he knows that the title is on the line - aka $$$.

That's a strike that takes some thought. Elbow or backfist, or if he is going down, kicking out at Mayweather's legs as he does. Those are more typical knee-jerk responses.

I am however, less invested in the fight than AT. I don't even care who wins. This is a show. I'm surprised the WWE isn't running it. If they go out and actually fight, I don't think it will last long unless McGregor can take a better than good beating. McGregor's all mouth, but he's like a pro wrestler. He's putting on a show because it works. I doubt he's as big a jerk in real life as he portrays himself.

Mayweather seems more to me like a Larry Holmes. Good in his own right but no real competition.

I hear Vegas is in an uproar about it because if McGregor wins, they won't be able to cover bets.

My prediction is a rematch. The only reason this fight is happening is money and what pays better than one fight? Two fights. To justify a rematch Mayweather will have to suffer an injury; he can claim he hurt his hand because of the lighter gloves or maybe he gets an "accidental" headbutt from McGregor when the referee "isn't looking" and a cut opens that hampers his vision but with out a Mayweather injury no one will believe McGregor kept the fight close enough to justify a rematch.

This I have been hearing a lot! But here's why I disagree with everyone:

If Mayweather wins: folks will say that Conor is not a boxer and never should have been near a ring. They will never order a PPV of them 2 again and will then know it's solely about money. I'm also not sure Floyd would want yet another with the dough that man has, he doesn't NEED to fight anymore, and he'll then own the best record of all time at 50-0.

If Conor wins: I don't see this happening, as Floyd loses his shot at immortality. But if the miracle happens, then there's a slight possibility of a rematch. And even then, only happens if its like a KO and the peeps believe it. If it's a boring fight and he outpoints him, I think people see it as a money grab and the 2nd has little interest in comparison and will look like a scam.

I just heard an interview with Jackie Kallen and she said the same thing you did; Mayweather already has hundreds of millions of dollars and once he gets #50 he won't risk fighting anymore.

I don't care who's the better fighter......Mayweather is a local guy and I hope he wins......I remember seeing him on the local news when he was still in the Golden Gloves.....
