I was hoping that conor would win but oh well. He lasted 10 rounds against one of the best boxing champs so I'm happy with that. I'm sure that mayweather realizes that he wouldn't survive 1 round in MMA.

He wouldn't survive ten seconds lol.

He was after the purse. He didnt care if he couldnt beat Floyd. Anyone who took Conor seriously and didnt see his real intent deserved to be laughed at. Those two are probably going to hawaii to enjoy some drinks after this. Ask any man on the street if he would take a beating for 100 million dollars. I dont think you would be surprised by the result. Theres a reason why they call him money mayweather. Fighting him will make you rich.

Just read on SB nation that Conor only gets $30 million of his purse.

He would last more.

It would all be part of the contract scripted lol.

Mayweather would ensure he get somthing out of it before he sign the dotted line.  

These guys are more entertainers than true sportsmen. They smart enough to reliase money comes first for them before the too old and takig unnecassary risks.  Entertainment brings bums to seats also, so need to put on a show o the punters spend money.

So, in other words McGregor lasting ten rounds was all part of the script. Glad I'm not a fan of either of these sports.

That's just his guaranteed cut.  Doesn't include the split from tickets and pay per view.  He will probably get close to 100 million once those are factored in.  Floyd was guaranteed 100 million but should make closer to 300 million.

Disregard



Didn't watch the fight due to the ridiculously high price of $100, but I just watched a highlight video and I have to say Connor didn't fight smart from what I saw. All of the experts were saying that he needed to save his energy as much as possible, hang back and look for openings to throw body shots with his longer reach, which would pay dividends later in the fight by sapping Mayweather's stamina. Instead he came out much too aggressive, throwing combos at Mayweather's head, hoping to get a lucky knockout I guess, but Mayweather is a very defensive fighter and blocked all of the significant shots, so all Connor did with that strategy was tire himself out much too early. Meanwhile Mayweather was smart and just defended those early rounds, which saved plenty of energy for those later rounds where he just dominated Connor.

Ultimately I'm not surprised by the outcome, I said yesterday that Mayweather would likely win and I was right. Freddie Roach said it would take 3 years of training for Connor to beat Mayweather, but he only had about a year and a few months of training. To make matters worse, he didn't train with Freddie, instead he opted to train with his MMA striking coaches. His inexperience as a boxer shown through with his overly aggressive strategy.

Well no the sport on it's own are good as general two trained in the field are fighting.

The difference here is they both from different sports and both want money.  Fllyod come out of retirement for this fight. He wouldn't have unless he had a lot to gain.



 

 

Well, now that he has the sole record of 50-0, I think he'll be done for good.



This poll shows how much a lot of people don't know about fighting and especially boxing all together and what shows it even more is people think he lasted 10 rounds good on him um yeah Maywheather was in control that whole fight. Honestly peoples reactions were more entertaining than the fight haha either way good on them they made their money people got a show can't really hate on it.
