The difference here is Conor claimed he could beat the best in boxing in a boxing ring. I don't remember Floyd ever saying he could beat the best in MMA in an MMA ring. No boxer thinks he can beat an MMA fighter in an octagon, and if he does he's as delusional as the aikido nuts.

Not sure why you're so salty, your boy walked away with 9 figures and at no point was ever really hurt. Conor seems happier about his loss than you are.

And let's not forget he KO'd the big show in a wrestling ring, so boxing beats grappling.

The fight would have never existed without those claims.

He called him out, sold the fight and is now $125 mill richer. Job done.

Not salty and no boxing doesn't beat grappling. Street fight you don't stop and make up the rules before hand you win how ever you can ie octagon so that's a no go for you. The point is connor can step into floyds world and do okay, floyd can't go the other way and not wind up crippled.

Connor sold an idea of him being able to win so he could collect 100 million. People wouldn't watch if he said I can't win but I want some dough.

I think you missed my WWE joke. I don't actually think boxing beats wrestling.

HOWEVER, in a situation against multiple attackers, which is commonplace where I'm from, wrestling is useless.

I was agreeing with you about mma being more similar to true combat, and I'm pretty sure I said the same thing about Floyd not standing a chance in MMA in my post. I don't think anyone has actually argued against you about that.

Have this same discussion with my nephew all the time and always have to remind him that UFC certainly does have rules. No nut stuff, no biting, head butts, small joint manipulation, point of elbows, kneeing or kicking grounded opponents, hair pulling, eye gouging, etc. Lots of things can be employed against a UFC guy in a street fight that they aren't ready for either.

sucker punch mid-sentence and run is probably most effective.

Can't believe people thought this fight was great. Go on ESPN, FS1.... "It was a great fight." Horrible fight. Mayweather took his uppercut and he was "smiling." First time ever, Mayweather came at him instead of being a defensive fighter because he knew McGregor had no real power behind his punches. Some of the stuff that Mayweather did like turning his back would have been knocked out easily by a real boxer like GGG. Then weak rabbit punches, weird open stance etc. Good for him making all that money but this was just a sad spectacle to watch especially if you shelled out $100 for the PPV. And Mayweather could have gone another 10 rounds.

Like I said above Conor is no boxer . But Floyds blood would flow in the cage in round 1 .
