    It'll be a nice payday for McGregor. Just show up, get beat up and get paid. Hopefully no permanent damage in the process.

    I haven't seen the terms... gotta think McGregor's getting at least 40 Million.

    It'll be interesting to see if Mayweather treats this like every other fight and lays back to counter punch or if he just goes in for the kill. McGregor needs to make this a dirty fight, stay tight.... yeah, his only chance is to land the punch heard round the world.

    Didn't Floyd say he'd guarantee him 15? I bet McGregor doesn't get more than 20 at the absolute max. And why wouldn't Floyd treat it like any other fight? He'll technically destroy him. There's no reason for him to take any risk.

    I hope so.. sometimes overconfidence can deter the best laid plans... even the best.

    I really hope that this fight takes place at the end of the year. A full year of pressers with these two beaking off... oh man. That'll be the best part.

    Let's get ready to rumble...

    Two of the best smack talkers go head to head in what I expect will be a boxing match that certainly favours Mayweather. I'm not giving him the fight, but unless they modify the regular rules of boxing, I can't see how MacGregor can beat him.

    Like this V



    I think McGregor does hold 1 advantage that some are overlooking; he's been trained to face punches from fists covered in UFC gloves as well as KICKS to the body; both of those hits tend to hurt more than a boxing glove punch.

    Excited to see how this will play out

    It’s not like McGregor will be totally lost, but I think his endurance will be his undoing, not his technique.


    It’ll be like that UFC fight yrs ago, GSP vs someone where GSP just jabbed him to death.

    This just shows a lack of understanding of boxing TBH. Not to mention Floyd doesn't win with power. He wins with defensive boxing and scores points to win in a decision. He's not ever going to try and win with a knockout. He'll play defense the whole fight, never take any risks, doesn't matter how much he hurts McGregor, and will win by decision, like he does in all of his fights.

    If this goes 12 rounds.... win or lose, McGregor will never shut his mouth about taking the best in boxing the distance.

    I can see McGregor standing in the middle of the ring yelling insults to Floyd telling him to stop running.
