    Like a MMA style movement? That's maybe because floyd fights boxers.
    I'll give mcgregor one thing, he absolutely knows how to play the media part, the loudmouth and quick one liners etc. He's very good at that. And he can put bums on seats. It's a win-win situation for him as far as I see it. If he wins he can shout his mouth off about it till his dying day. If he loses he has the excuses already made for him, it's not his arena, bigger gloves, weight blah blah blah. he can go on about how brave he was to take on Mayweather at his game so mayweather should do the same in return. All while pocketing an eye-popping amount of cash which was his ultimate intention IMO.
    As for the fight itself, I predict a borefest with mayweather making mcgregor chase him while picking him off with counter punches and combos. While mcgregor has power, floyds fought powerful guys before. Look at Saul Alvarez knocking out amir Khan. And he couldn't knock mayweather out. He has one of the best defences in boxing and I can't see mcgregor getting near him.
    Mcgregors brain is tuned and trained for a different style of fighting which his subconscious will need to fight all the time aswell, resist the temptation to kick, grapple etc.

    I like McGregor & hope he wins.
    But he won't.
    Anyone that thinks he will is an idiot.

    its more like WWE than boxing. which makes me dubious if they have agreed something between them about the outcome. they are both great business men after all.

    If it is a proper fight then McGregor is clearly skilled and an accomplished fighter. However 49 boxers have tried and failed against Mayweather so McGregor without experience you would think would have no chance. However he may just bring something to the party.

    Re: Mayweather vs McGregor - Official

    Im wondering how CMG will not use his elbows legs or knees , also wondering if he gets caught how the survival instinct & years of grappling & locking up etc wont just kick in automatically ..

    UFC fighters come to fight , one of the reasons its getting so popular . FM wont come to fight , he will come to win a fight his way

    Curious how it will pan out ,two of the great showmen . wouldnt pay for it tho

    It'll be in Conor's contract that if he elbows, kicks, chokes Floyd he'll lose his purse. Won't happen, as much as it'd be hilarious. In a real fight it'd be embarrassing for Floyd.

    Also, saw this earlier, Conor talks some trash and can be a bit flash, but there's no doubt in my mind that he's a sound guy. Can't say the same for Mr Mayweather.
