    What about putting him in the boxing ring w/ another MMA fighter looking to make the transition? Or would that just expose his lack of technique even in a case of a victory?
    Nothing is gonna prepare his chin, which has already been tested.. or prepare him for actually beating thru lets just say a bunch of dudes Mayweather's already handled with ease..

    Shawn Porter (26-2-1) who fights an in your face, rush you type of style would just overwhelm him, he'd grab all the momentum and destroy his entire rhythm.. (Highly recommend catching the replay of him vs the aforementioned Keith Thurman thatwas the FOTY in 2016 IMO)

    He can't ready himself for that type of onslaught.. simply out of his depth.. You can't stand like that and beat these guys!!!


    He doesn't have a chance in hell vs Kell Brook(36-1-0 25ko's), he'd get PUMMELED.. BULLDOZED.. beaten from rope to rope.. Some of these guys I'mtalking about here if were at 155lbs aregonna look much bigger than Connor.. Brook's only loss is to Golovkin.. He walks around at 170lbs...

    Paulie Malignaggi, whos the best TV analyst in any sport right now IMO had this to say;

    "While that is a paycut for Floyd Mayweather, it's definitely not a paycut for me...I would take even $5 million and Conor can take $45 and after I beat his ass, I'll take the upper hand on the rematch...that is a free money," stated former world champion Paulie Malignaggi, who shared his thoughts Dana White's offer to Floyd Mayweather.

    Pretty sure Floyd tweeted this was false, but I'm not sure when this came out/when he tweeted.

    I read that Connor is under contract for 4 more fights with the ufc before he can even think about getting his ass kicked against floyd.
    Gobert is eating souls out there

    Snyder’s resting facial expression resembles that of a shiv-wielding prisoner

    Quinn will let the team eat tonight now

    Quinn snyder has definitely killed multiple hookers right?

    There will be an audience for it either way, if its MMA or boxing one or the other will get their arse kicked. I'm sure there is a huge audience out there who would enjoy watching Mayweather cop a flogging.

    I agree but my point was that the fight can't/won't happen until Connor fights 4 more fights in the ufc. That will probably take a few years. By then floyd will be really old so I'm thinking the fight never happens.

    Though floyd will probably be broke by that time with the way he spends money so maybe he will still take the fight even if he is too old.

    For an event like this contracts can be renegotiated.

    Yep. Dana wants his pound of flesh. So would I, if I were in his position. And it'll be a big pound.

    Is it 4 or 6 months between fights in UFC? he could fight 4 time in 18 months. That said, a buyout is more likely, still don't think the fight will happen. Mayweather is at the end of his career and is looking for another payday and you can't blame him for that. (He's a fairly horrible human being so if your looking for something to blame him for, look no further.) But why would McGregor be that interested? He's probably got another 5 or 6 years left in him why is he chasing a payday instead of establishing a legacy.

    Kovalev has killed people in the ring. I really think he'd brutally beat McGreggor in a fist fight, quickly and decisively..

    His power is multitudes higher than anyone who beat McGreggor in the UFC.

    Kov's only loss on record was a sham too. Clearly beat Ward.

    I give it to Mayweather easy, if I was mcgregor you have to go for the knockout and mayweather will make him pay when he does. Connor needs to play mayweathers game imho make him chase connor around and prove hes a not a boring fighter( which he is) then in the 12th go for the knockout or get knocked out. If it goes to decision lord knows connor will lose... but does he even care? Prolly not but if he really wants to win do much of nothing until the late rounds and hope age gives connor a tired mayweather. The $100 for the mayweather/paqi fight was money thrown away, id love to see mayweather lose tho!

    Mcgregor got nothing to lose. If he lose, he can say if it were mma fight he would've won. He will collect lots of money anyhow
