Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

It's just crazy it's actually happening, but in reality Conor would be lucky to land anything, Floyd's just that slick defensively.

IF somehow, though very unlikely, Conor does KO Mayweather it would be a big blow to boxing imo. Having one of the greatest boxers of all time lose to an MMA fighter would be devastating and give MMA a lot more credibility. Honestly I think May will embarrass Conor, tire him and knock him out in the mid-late rounds. He actually has power but chooses to box and pot shot.

I'm actually interested in seeing what it does to the UFC if Conor's embarrassed or if it'll have any effect at all. Personally I haven't purchased a UFC ppv in a long time as some fighters stalling for decisions(lay n pray, holding against the cage for minutes) and long time in between fights with only decently stacked cards have pretty much killed my interest. Then I've heard that Mousasi left to join Belator for example it just seems like they're heading in the wrong direction. And if Conor takes his money and runs there's not a lot of huge stars to generate ppv buys.
Yeah, good point. It would be a blow to boxing, but Mayweather has the "I'm 40" argument to fall back on. So, I don't think it would be too bad in the long run. Conor's expected to lose and has the "see me in the octagon and see what happens" talk to fall back on. I think MMA would be fine...he is limited to his fists after all. If he leaves, though, and calls it quits...that would be a big blow to the UFC. Should be interesting.

Ain't nobody getting knocked out in this.
This is just a money making show. Just like the one with Manny they have that closed door deal to get money.

I hope so. He's the last hope to give this arrogant ass clown a loss. Cannot stand Mayweather but smart money says another snooze fest decision in Floyds favor. I really hope you’re right.

I think they'll put on a Rocky III-type spectacle at the end. Gloves come off and they go at it just like in the Thunderlips match.

mayweather will run circles around Mcgregor. Boxing gloves weight makes a huge difference. It's just not the same as MMA gloves.
