That fight was a freaking joke. Conor talked all that shit and he got tired on the 4th round. This is the definition of a BS fight.

It's simple, Conner was not conditioned, because UFC fighters aren't trained to do 10 rounds so maybe he'll be better prepared if they do a rematch.

The fight was pretty impressive IMO. Connor did get tired but some of the later rounds were pretty close. Mayweather had better stamina since he's an expert so he lasted better in the later rounds. Overall the match was entertaining.

No the fight was not impressive at all. It went exactly per script for mayweather, Conor punched himself out doing no damage in early rounds and had nothing left in the tank to do anything from the 5th round onward and no none of the rounds after the 5th were close at all. Conor threw way too many nothing punches and lacked endurance.

Entertaining fight and mcgregor did himself proud. Made about 100m for the fight too. mayweather would have made close to 300m. Not bad for a guy on welfare 4 years ago. Congrats conor. Looking forward to your ufc return.

Has he paid the money back?

Of course. He pays taxes. Probably a hundred or a thousand times over.

I made money from a co-worker. Easiest bet ever. Fight went exactly as expected. Well, I thought it would end a little earlier, but not by much.

Cards were released. Two of the judges had McGregor only winning the first round.

That highlights one of the many real problems with boxing at the moment.

Apparently the 30 million is 10X more than he made in his last UFC fight - and that's for losing; Mayweather made more than triple for winning. Either it shows how much more popular boxing is, or it shows how disgustingly underpaid MMA fighters are in the UFC.

A little of both. The most modern form of professional boxing has been around for over 100 years. Professional MMA less than 30. Needless to say boxing has a way larger fanbase and more major sponsors making those paydays possible. 

Also UFC pays most of the guys pretty low. Most of them are lucky if they can make 50K on a fight. That's with performances bonuses. That's why so many guys make the move to Bellator. They pay their fighters better.

Not only that there are people who still view MMA as barbaric and dangerous. When it reality it's track record shows that it's safer than boxing.

So are some boxers, a fighter on the prelims made $3,500 on this card. It's just at the top end of boxing, pay is much, much higher. Mcgregor and Mayweather made almost 99% of the money paid out for this card.



 

The match was entertaining alright. Especially with Connor faking clinches then grab Floyd on the hips while trying to do some pussy punches. Or those hammer fists that just seems to slide off of Floyd's shiny bald head.

What we betted on was whether Connor will actually try to elbow, knee, takedown, or even do a spinning back fist. Needless to say, we were disappointed.



Disappointing.

Hey everyone, did anyone at least bleed?

Pretty much 50% of his earnings goes to the taxman. And being the legend he is he's chosen to pay them in ireland,  unlike bono and Co. He's done so much for this country.

Boxing is corrupt to the core.  Did you see what happened in the Olympics with the Russian boxers being handed victorys even in matches where they were destroyed!

boxing is certainly one of the easiest sports to corrupt and has a lot of issues, but I personally would not label the Olympics as a good exampe of that. I am assuming you are talking about the heavy weight gold fight, it was actually a very close fight, remember Olympics is purely a points based decision, it doesn't matter that Levit was doing the most damage and certainly would have beaten him had the fight gone longer, I personally I think the russian lost but not by much.
