    Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor

    All rumors are pointing to Conor McGregor to do a boxing match with Floyd Mayweather as his next fight…wtf.

    Personally I do not get the point of it as these are different sports and as much as I love MMA and Conor, I highly doubt he would win a boxing match against Floyd (MMA match would be different).

    Yet, I have to admit I’d watch this for sure

    Would you?



    In the aftermath of UFC 202, many pundits have once again suggested that a super-fight between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather could be on the cards.

    Some people call it a sideshow, a circus that would be an insult to both sports. However, whichever way you look at it, Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather would undoubtedly be one of the highest grossing pay-per-view events of all time. In fact, there’s every possibility that it would take the number one spot.
    In the midst of McGregor’s fall out with the UFC in the build up to UFC 200, rumours began to circulate that Floyd Mayweather was interested in facing the ‘Notorious’ Irishman. The reports were initially scoffed at with most purists claiming that a McGregor/Mayweather fight would simply be a farce. In an MMA fight, McGregor would destroy Mayweather. In a boxing contest, Floyd would simply pick Conor apart.
    However, the rumours became far more than that when both fighters started to openly speak about the contest, frequently encouraging the story in interviews and on social media.
    In fact, speaking about McGregor, Mayweather stated that he absolutely believed that a fight with the UFC champion was going to happen and that the Irishman was, at that point in time, the only fight he would consider.

    I have a friend that is in with Mayweather and he has said that this is very likely to happen and they are just working out the details.

    My inside MMA sources tell me the same....I didn't believe it at first, but it looks like it is going to happen....was stalled over money, but think Conor agreed to like 50 million!

    Still not sure why, other than money....but I'll watch it for sure

    It's all about the money, nothing more nothing less.

    According to http://www.espn.com/boxing/story/_/i...conor-mcgregor it's not going to happen. It was a strange idea to begin with, not terribly surprised.

    Darn that sucks....guess they couldn't come to an agreement on the millions they wanted....greedy bastards

    This statement by Floyd bugs me: ""I feel honored to be the biggest name in MMA and in boxing, and I don't even compete no more."" Biggest name in MMA!!! What a joke...he may be one of the greatest boxers, but he is fooling himself if he think he could beat any UFC fighter in a MMA match. If he could last one round with Conor in a MMA match I'd be amazed.... So big deal, a guy with no pro boxing fights would get beat by the guy who has been pro boxing all his life.

    Newest rumor is that Conor will now fight Eddie Alverez for the 155 title...although today I see Dana denied that and says title shot goes to Khabib. We will see, but I bet the power of money will make Conor be the pick.....few care or know who Khalib is or even Eddie for that matter.

    Re: Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor

    I paid more than $10 to watch the Alien Covenant, and it was a complete pile of garbage... I'd donate a few bucks to the cause to watch this circus.


    Do not put off living the life you dream of. Next year may never come. If we are always waiting for something to change...
    Retirement, the kids to leave home, the weather or the economy, that's not living. That's waiting!
    Waiting will only leaves us with unrealized dreams and empty wishes.

    Re: Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor

    I had never seen any of the originals, but I got roped into paying $18.00 for that freakin' movie!

    I'll post up about the goings-on for the "boxing match" as the date gets closer.

    Re: Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor

    On one hand Conor is a lot younger, probably has better conditioning etc currently, and according to most hits hard. On the other hand, this is a straight boxing match where Mayweather has an experience advantage. I don't think Conor has much to lose, Mayweather more, but they both stand to make a rather large amount of money.

    The best part of this fight is all the trash talking proceeding it. Let's get our popcorn early!
    I think Conor has an advantage there-funny with accent

    Re: Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor

    Who can blame them....circus show or whatever, we'd all do it for +40 million.

    After the boxing match, they should meet on the street and see who would win there.....I'd give Mayweather 30 seconds before a MMA fighter like Conor showed him that boxing is more a sport than an actual dominate fighting style; one dimensional and most fights go to the ground.... should I even mention the 50% more tools....hence legs.

    So yeah even if Mayweather wins, I'd still consider Conor the tougher guy! When a boxer comes into MMA and dominates MMA fighters with pure boxing skills then I will take it back......doubt it will ever happen though.

    I'm with Barn and bet you will be there with us watching this

    Even though it is a long shot I do hope Conor shocks the world and can pull off a win. One thing about this guy is he has shocked us over and over again, so don't discount him too fast.......
