Default McGregor vs. Mayweather... what's your prediction?

So a boxing match between the two is definitely gonna happen... Mayweather has given every indication that he wants the fight. He'll never give you a straight answer... 1 because he's partially retarded, and 2 it's his way of being a "clever businessman"... so for him to come out and actually acknowledge the fans and say he believes the fight will happen... well, good for him. It's pretty much official.


How do you think a boxing match between the two will go? Floyd dominates every round? McGregor cracks Floyd multiple times and shocks the world?


I would obviously side with Floyd because I haven't seen Conor in a straight up boxing match. Ironically though... It would be more surprising to see Floyd knock out Conor as opposed to Conor knocking out Floyd.


Who would I root for? Conor because he's white



Your thoughts?

I also will be rooting for Conor because he is an Aryan brother

It will crumble the black community

Not just that but because it will destroy the boxing realm all together

What a dumb fight.

So, this is actually taking place in a boxing ring? With boxing rules, gloves, etc?

If so, why? Mayweather is about to turn 40 and is firmly established as an all-timer in boxing and the best of his era. Why does he need to box some MMA guy who has never competed in a professional boxing bout?

I understand why McGregor would do it. He may be a large draw for the UFC, but Mayweather is the biggest PPV draw in sports history. The money makes sense for McGregor, assuming there are still enough shills to pay for something like this.

But, I just don't see the point for Floyd. It could only diminish his legacy if McGregor somehow won ... and he is 40, so anything is possible. In all this time off, he could have fallen off the cliff.

Color me confused.

You would literally have to be an imbecile of epic proportions to think that Connor has a chance to beat him in a boxing match. Saying that, Connor winning would make waves and with his arrogance it would be hilarious to see.

But yeah, he's going to get bodied.

Because he will make an easy 100m+? His 100m is probably just to show up with tv deals and other incentives.

If Mayweather doesn't take it Pacman said he would. Even though May would beat Pac I think Pac would absolutely destroy McGregor more than May could. Stylistically speaking. Both would destroy though

there's almost no path to victory for conor. floyd has an enormous arsenal of tricks and techniques to dip in to should he ever feel threatened. i could see conor's ranginess and power giving floyd some trouble early on, but against a grandmaster professional like mayweather, you know floyd's seen it all before and knows exactly how to deal with it.

i see conor making a strong push in the early rounds, then getting worn down by the middle rounds. so, either a decision or a TKO depending on what shape floyd's in.

the fight is very much in the air, tho. conor's team is still trying to find a legal path to fight outside of his UFC contract. but even if the fight never happens, it still builds his brand and his drawing power. win-win for McG either way. he's talked about retiring young and has spoken recently about his nervousness concerning head trauma. when his sparring partner's opponent died after a fight last year, that really shook him up.

You can have Conor Mcgregor if you want. Just remember that the Bran family doesnt accept any Aryan brothers on this championship cruise

Mayweather wins an easy decision. McGregor would be lucky to land 20 total punches on Mayweather and I'm being completely serious.

I can't believe you're even asking the question. With Mayweather it always has and always will be about money.

It'll be entertaining. Those guys (Mayweather especially) will be making bank though. People have been eating this up because it's basically Mixed Martial Arts vs. Boxing and the 5-10 year debate on which is more entertaining, which is more skilled, etc. That's all it comes down to.
