McGregor will be beaten to death in 3 rounds. Huge money amounts will be flying around. The rich get richer, fight is boring as with every Mayweather fight fucking ever, and basically, who cares. I'll still watch it. But I damn sure ain't paying for it.

Seriously though, McGregor is just being greedy and Mayweather just wants more money and fame. If Mayweather loses, the fight is rigged. Plain and simple.

Mayweather doesn't have the strength to KO anyone at this stage of his career, but he will absolutely control the fight with opportune hugs to coast his way to a unanimous victory. McGregor likely won't even try because he's getting the payday he wanted to retire on and go into movies.

Ehhh, if you want to be literal then Mayweather will control the fight with superior defense and counterpunch jabs so that McGregor never gets anything of not to connect while taking numerous point-deducting jabs that add up. Mayweather fights these days are so horrendously boring, though, that it's funnier to call them hugfests.

I would love, and I mean fucking LOVE to see Mayweather have his age catch up with him and at least lose to Mcgregor. That said, it's highly unlikely. You're talking about one of the greatest boxers of all time, vs. a guy who has a small boxing background whose primary skills are in kicking and elbows.

It's a cash grab, they're both millionaires and it's going to be huge because it's never been done in the world of boxing. I'll watch the shit out of it and piss off everyone who hates Mcgregor. That said, he's likely to lose. It's like having a lion against a cheetah in a contest of speed. Sure, one is powerful but obviously the cheetah is going to fucking win because it's a god damn cheetah.

Watching this fight is going to be the same reason I root for the Redsox. It's mainly Irish nationalism coupled with seeing highly unlikely events take place.

Nah, sadly Mayweather hasn't had KO power for like a decade, and the layoff from his retirement coupled with him aging further doesn't help matters. He's going to counterpunch his way to a unanimous point victory and McGregor is going to stop giving a shit after the second round and coast to his dream payday. Then at work on Monday your coworkers will wonder aloud why the fuck they sat through all 12 rounds of that shitfest.

I've €30 on Mayweather by decision, with a return of €112 if I'm right.

Mayweather has never KO'd anyone in his professional career save once, and it was more or less an illegal blow when it did happen.

They're both going to clinch the fuck out of each other for 12 rounds: Mayweather to try and keep his stamina, McGregor so that he doesn't get punched.

In Ireland, the vast majority of people seem to have made "cheeky" small bets on McGregor to win. In order to not be devastated in the event of McGregor some how winning, the bookies had to adjust the odds more in McGregor's favour.

Thus last weekend I was able to get really good odds on Mayweather by decision.

It wasn't until this week that some smart money came in here in Ireland on Mayweather.

The whole time I was watching this fight I was just thinking about how good it would feel to see Macgregor take Mayweather down into full guard and just start teeing off on his face.

Sure Mayweather wins in a 12 round boxing match, but I'm betting that Macgregor would win in an MMA fight within the first round.

A lot of people giving McGregor props, but he never hurt Mayweather, not once. He was too slow too often and too soft. He predicted RD 2 knockout yet from the outset looked like he was saving his big punched for later rounds. But Mayweather is a master of conditioning and pacing, and never getting tired. His shots were fast and strong.

McGregor should have just gone all out early on. Honestly his best efforts were avoiding some of those shots for 10 rounds.

Before I read any posts on this I'm going to give my thoughts.

>McGregor actually hugged as much as Mayweather. How that is possible I will never know.
>McGregor and his 9001 illegal moves and strikes.
>Mayweather literally didn't even start to fight until round 5 or 6.
>McGregor gave absolutely no defense the entire fight. Which with Mayweather just guarding the first half, leaving his chin hanging in the breeze meant fuck all.
>McGregor got gassed out by round 4 or 5. His biggest weakness would be limited strikes and a match that was more than 15 minutes. I'm sure this fact completely missed him and his trainers.... Suuuuure.
>In round 9 and 10, McGregor was literally so tired that he couldn't fight anymore. Yet what does he do? Cartoonishly stagger around all dramatic rather than back into a corner and hold his defenses.
>Mayweather. "10th round knockout power." HAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHA

This was all rigged from the start and is quite possibly the best example how fucking shitty boxing has become in the past 30 fucking years. What an absolute disgrace to fighting sports. Nobody in the ring cared. Nobody in the crowd cared. Nobody cared anything at all about this payday. Hype trains go off cliffs, not up mountains.

Those dudes made a game plan beforehand. That fight came out way too much of what was expected round to round. It's boxing I guess. Did Conor even try a heavy left? Even that stoppage was a little questionable, not insanely questionable, but you didn't condition well enough to even make it through the tenth? Fuck outta here.

>McGregor actually hugged as much as Mayweather. How that is possible I will never know.

McGregor got gassed, and when boxers gas they clinch to try and rest.

>McGregor and his 9001 illegal moves and strikes.

It was pretty egregious how the ref let McGregor throw so many illegal punches, but McGregor lost anyways so I suppose it's water under the bridge.

>Mayweather literally didn't even start to fight until round 5 or 6.

It was basically an extreme version of Mayweather's defensive virtuoso style. Against professional boxers he counterpunches a lot more but Conor was fighting like a wild man so Mayweather saw that McGregor was going to gas fast so he focused almost entirely on defense, only going on the offense at the end of rounds, until the later rounds when McGregor was too tired to raise his arms, and that's when Mayweather began fighting on the offensive.

>McGregor gave absolutely no defense the entire fight. Which with Mayweather just guarding the first half, leaving his chin hanging in the breeze meant fuck all.

Yep, pretty much because McGregor isn't a professional boxer. He tried to fight this like a UFC fight that was strictly stand-up and didn't take the boxing aspect seriously (which requires an entirely different mindset).

>McGregor got gassed out by round 4 or 5. His biggest weakness would be limited strikes and a match that was more than 15 minutes. I'm sure this fact completely missed him and his trainers.... Suuuuure.

It's pretty incredible that Mayweather didn't even have to pepper McGregor's body with bodyshots to gas McGregor, instead he did all the work for Mayweather. But again, McGregor is clearly an amateur boxer.

>In round 9 and 10, McGregor was literally so tired that he couldn't fight anymore. Yet what does he do? Cartoonishly stagger around all dramatic rather than back into a corner and hold his defenses.

Another instance of McGregor treating this like a UFC fight, where you run away when you're in trouble or you take your opponent to the ground so you stop moving so much. Except a boxing ring is much smaller and that running around only tired McGregor further. He was in proverbial quicksand at this point and his strategy to get out was to keep struggling, basically.

>Mayweather. "10th round knockout power." HAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHA

Yeah, it's pretty incredible that 40 year-old Mayweather after a 2 year retirement won by TKO. McGregor is silly to say it was a premature stoppage because in boxing when you aren't raising your arms and you're letting your opponent tee off on your face it doesn't matter if you don't go down, you're what they consider "punch drunk" and the stoppage is to prevent your dumb ass from incurring brain damage since you won't take a knee to stop the onslaught.

>This was all rigged from the start

No, clearly it was not. This was literally a professional boxer that is considered one of the all-time greats fighting an amateur in a professional bout. It was a clown show and was always going to be a clown show. You saw an amateur get (rightfully) defeated by the professional.

>the best example how fucking shitty boxing has become in the past 30 fucking years.

While boxing isn't in its heyday anymore, it seems misguided to point to this freak show as its downfall. The Mayweather-Paquiao fight is a much better example, as it showed the greed and selfishness of modern boxers ruin what could have been an all-time great fight. On the other hand, Canelo Vs. GGG coming up this month could be a real banger so it's not quite time to consider boxing dead & buried yet. The great fights just come around at about the same rate as eclipses these days unfortunately.

Well, this is an interesting development. Apparently Mayweather badly wanted to bet $400k on himself to win either under 9.5 rounds or by KO, so much so that he tried to give the money to an accomplice to place the bet when he was denied from placing a prop bet on himself due to the murky legality. Maybe Mayweather could have ended the fight whenever he wanted to after all...

one thing no one is mentioning is the difference in stancework. in mma, takedowns are a big concern, so a deeper stance is almost mandatory at all times. mcgregor has drilled that stance into his lizard brain after thousands of hours of that type of stance under stress. the thigh muscles are the largest in the body, and maintaining a deep stance like that takes a lot more blood and nutrients than the shallower more casual stance mayweather had, comparatively. im not waving away the possibility of things being fixed, but i think it is a reasonable contributing factor to mcgregor tiring out (aside from him expending energy with far more punches than mw in the first 5 rounds or so), was using his leg muscles unnecessarily more than may

Mayweather is that fucking stupid to try and bet that he would take out McGregor at the predetermined time. Greedy retard.

Were we watching the same fight? McGregor was being a cheeky fuck locking up in the first 45 seconds. The entire fight he would grab Mayweather. It was literally like round 9 before he stopped that shit.

>McGregor and his 9001 illegal moves and strikes.
>It was pretty egregious how the ref let McGregor throw so many illegal punches, but McGregor lost anyways so I suppose it's water under the bridge.
More evidence it was rigged and no professionals cared about this shitshow. McGregor would have been DQ'd if this wasn't some 10k dollar ticket 100 dollar PPV shitfest. A decent ref would have called that shit by round 4.

>Mayweather literally didn't even start to fight until round 5 or 6.

Seems more like more evidence it was rigged. There was a good solid 4-5 second part in round 2 I think where McGregor literally put his arms behind his back and just mouthed shit while Mayweather just stood there and didn't throw a quick jab on his chin. Then I guess McGregor's handlers told him to fuck off doing that because it was clear Mayweather was holding back. Mayweather could have turned McGregor into paste by round 6. He didn't even start swinging until that point. As if to say, "Look patty, this shit has to go on for 8 rounds minimum. Chill the fuck out and phone it in you Irish fuck." Mayweathers defense is already good enough or rule bending enough to carry him without trouble. He didn't need to just stand there and take a ton of hits. And I find it really surprising you talk about Mayweathers defense when he literally didn't even do the chin tuck shit hardly any like he normally does. He just held his arms in front of his face and took body shot and hook a plenty. Mayweather wasn't even fighting like Mayweather.


>McGregor gave absolutely no defense the entire fight. Which with Mayweather just guarding the first half, leaving his chin hanging in the breeze meant fuck all.

Even if McGregor sucks at boxing, holding your arms out and low like you're going to grapple is just retarded. It was obvious nobody gave two shits and a flying fuck about this fight. They were all there for a payday.

I still don't see where McGregor would have been so tired after 25 minutes that he could only drunkenly stagger around when he is clearly able to go full on wrestling and grappling in a bigger ring for 15 minutes. At his lightest fighting weight, and after training to box? Come on dude. Him getting tired was all a farce. When you are give the fuck out, you hold the opponent or you back into a corner and bow your head and try and fend off blows. You don't just wobble around like you are about to trip for 5 minutes in a fight. And you don't go from bringing full power in round 6 and 7 to literally being unable to walk in round 9 right out of the gate.

I think your bullshit meter is broken. McGregor was a monkey teasing the gorilla. Mayweather could have literally ended this shit in 3-4 rounds. The Ref could have ended it in 2-3. Mayweather also isn't an all time great either. Like someone else said, he plays lawyer boxer and would get his shit kicked in if it weren't for all the rules in boxing. Maybe he is a great in that he knows how to bend the rules and play the game by not playing but that isn't comparing him to the boxers of the 60's and 70's. Back before this was all just a fancy way of money laundering. McGregor could have made for a far better fight but he didn't give a fuck, he just wanted his payday. And nothing more. Mayweather is clearly just a greedy fuck. As evidenced by him trying to bet that he would have the fight ended by round 10.

Boxing as a legitimate and competitive sport has been dead for decades. Too much money and politics is involved for it to be good. UFC is going the same way. Football went that way decades ago. Motocross was killed by the AMA's bullshit. etc. And still, why would anyone want to watch boxing when UFC and MMA exist? Too many rules to bend and play with in boxing. UFC fights are still often worth watching and you at least can have a decent time watching a group buy PPV with it. UF 2017 is like Boxing: 1987. Frank Mir, Anderson Silva (The "legends.") etc are gone but it is still decent with 2-3 people bring something new to the game.

Yeah Vegas is just a place to get tied up in legal battles and/or lose all your money now. There isn't even anything fun about it. It is just, "Give us your fucking money!" or this pile of police standing behind you will fuck your shit up for us. (PS: Don't forget to bring the kids too, Vegas is a family fun center now! :))
