conor sparring match... was that a joke or was he trying to connect, his arm look its made of rubber and it was slow motion......

boxers shouldn't be allowed to do mma cuz they could kill someone with that thin glove....

The only discussion should be about how this shouldn't be a discussion... :ninja: lmao. *watches Coges get triggered to play devil's advocate* :)

Damitt! Here we go again lol.

Man I know Mayweather's going to win and do it easily. It's just disappointing if there'll be no contest. I hope McGregor at least puts up something decent.

I do think though if anyone's going to cross over CM is a pretty good choice.

pro boxers usually get taken down & submitted in MMA.

Maybe Nate Diaz would be a better choice, since he outboxed CM & basically KO'd him in their first fight ...  :trollface:

Honestly though, Nate & Nick Diaz would probably fare better against most boxers than CM even though they are way slower, IMHO.. Nick Diaz for example, is more of a pure boxer with superb condition & a granite chin, he actually has one pro boxing win also (1-0).

As slick as CM is in the Octagon, in boxing, if you can't get a guy out early with that slickness & you're known for fading, a good boxer will suck you into the middle/later rounds and when you're drowning, will try and destroy you. CM fits that mold IMHO.. Very impressive, fast, slick in the first few rounds - but when he faced Nate Diaz who is a slow, non stop, granite chin boxer, he got worn down in literally one round. By the second round he was getting caught easy, which resulted in him getting rocked & choked out.

I'd expect the Nate/Nick prototype to do better than most MMA fighters in pro boxing.. Not at all against elites, but against lesser opposition. Good technique (great jabs, throw punches while defending simultaneously, good movement), granite chins, superb conditioning, can withstand tons of punishment, and just keep coming.. They'd be the kind of guys you'd put up & comer boxers up against early on, to give the fans an exciting fight.

pC!

Why? Because MOST MMA guys realize how LETHAL a boxer is comparatively. They know the best option is gnp or submission.

Nate:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ruCNdNGIDWI" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ruCNdNGIDWI</a>

lmfao.. those Diaz bros are just so rugged. Disrespectful (not good) and rugged. They also seem partially brain dead.

Not nearly as impressive as CM offensively.. but just traditional boxing skills (jab-1, jab/straight-1/2, jab/straight/hook-1/2/3), being tough as nails, and never getting tired .. go a long way in a boxing match. He gets off balance a bit, he's goofy, but he has some serious length on those shots.

Khan says Nate did great against Fonfara (pro boxer) in sparring. Would be interesting to see video of it.

yup

that's why it's funny even contemplating the idea of an elite MMA fighter trying to stand with an elite boxer.. they wouldn't even do it in the octagon if it was an MMA fight.. hah.

Don't forget the weight difference. CM goes up two weight classes and probably gets in the cage 15 pounds lighter than Diaz who has superb conditioning, great boxing and even better jiu-jitsu.

what in the world? the public is betting more and more on mcgregor? do they know something we don't?

http://www.espn.com/chalk/story/_/id/19664207/sportsbooks-sees-flurry-square-bets-conor-mcgregor-fight-floyd-mayweather

but the big bettors are still on mayweather, but in total more $ is going for mcgregor

could this be a david vs goliath situation or bunny vs the tortoise?

Don't know the boxing v mma scene in the US but mma is definitely more popular here so there's probably a whole generation who aren't familiar with Floyd or are just that enamoured with Conor that they think he will win.

Then again, maybe he will win... :trollface:

I dont bet on anything im not involved in lol BUT IF I DID, I'd throw a little money on Conor. NOT because I think he'll win but on the off chance Floyd slips on the camvas and Conor rocks him perfectly... itd pay off lol

Maybe Floyd will bet his entire net worth against himself, right before the fight.. then take a dive, and become a trillionaire.  :trollface:

Lol bet his networth that Mcgregor will win by ko in the first 10 seconds and get like 10000- 1 odds ..... but if only he can find a bookie that will take that bet and be able to pay him out too if he wins....
