Glad they got it worked out.

It's gonna be a massive payout for Conor, I just hope he will still be motivated to defend his UFC title and intend to be a formidable prospect for years to come. Or will he drift off with his pot of gold after this match and retire?

Conor may not live, so I doubt he's back to UFC. Looks like T-Mobile Arena. I figured MGM because Floyd has been there the last several times.

Mayweather is Great...but McGregor is ruthless and Great. This fight is being touted like the Rousey / Holmes fight was. Rousey was the favorite, but Holmes kicked butt. One thing about it...someone is going down...HARD. Unless, of course, both of them "make it" go the full rounds for a decision...and it comes out a draw.


It's all about the money...

Take Care...and, Stay Safe!

IMHO - Conners is a great MMA fighter, but I think when it comes to total standup, with no take downs, Mayweather is going to kick his ass!! It should still be a good pay-per-view, because Conners is tough enough to take a beating for a few rounds, but I don't think he has quick enough hands to connect with Mayweather much. I'm predicting Mayweather in the 5th round.

I agree with most except your prediction he would last 5. Iím thinking Connorís counting sheep by 2. Max. Mayweather has made a career of not getting hit and Connor is restricted from using most of his arsenal, i.e. grappling, floor game, kicks etc. Mayweather, as much as I canít stand the prick, will destroy him.

After all that, and as lame and corrupt as boxing has become who knows?

Well, I was trying to be a little forgiving for Connor,,, and also taking into account that Mayweather hasn't been in the ring for a while, and will take him a little bit to get back into his groove.

That's what I say (who knows). Is it fixed? Because if not, Conor cannot hit Floyd Mayweather. Can't even touch him. Maybe clip his shoulder or hit him in the hip, he'll be gone and returning fire when Conor tries to make contact. It will be bad. Canelo and Pac struggled to find him, so...
Not only that, but Mayweather is a master counter-puncher and will wreck Conor coming in.
Finally, Mayweather is 49-0 and every one of those 49 hits 10X as hard as Conor ever could and some of them did hit Floyd. He held them for a moment, pushed off, then proceeded to box them up again.


My guess is 2-3 rounds is about right, maybe 4 or 5 if Floyd carries him that far to avoid people being upset with paying $100 to see a 30-second beatdown. Point is, the "fight" (and Conor) lasts exactly as long as Mayweather wants it to.
