I just can't get into two dumb toolbags knocking the crap out of each other for $185-or-whatever-million dollars. Makes me sick to think of what could be done with that money.

Full disclosure: In the spirit of the thread, I voted Mayweather because I think he's going to leave McGregor in a coma.

Different rules, different skills. They both know that. Sounds like a cash grab.

Agreed way to much cash at hand...

My prediction:
Mayweather wins by decision by dancing around the ring. But McGregor will get one good punch in that will be worth seeing. McGregor will win 2 rounds; both will be in the first 3-4 rounds of the fight.

I read that they won't walk to the ring till at least 11:15 pm eastern time

You need to visit more pinball shows and drink heavy. Maybe you'll get lucky.

I hope McGregor smashes his face in and shuts his big mouth! Win or lose though, McGregor is a ten times better fighter than Mayweather. UFC is where the real men fight and Mayweather wouldn't last 30 seconds in the octagon with McGregor.

#13 1 year ago

This should not even be called a fight. It's really a lotto win for McGregor and the safest way Mayweather can get to 50-0. This will be boring, and there is no way McGregor can win this. Anyone who pays anything to see this is wasting there money. Mayweather's hand speed and lateral movement will be like nothing he has ever seen making this a complete missmatch. McGregor may be tough, but the referee will not allow a one sided beating and step in for a TKO. If Mayweather wanted to impress he would come out of retirement to fight GGG. But that is too risky so will never happen. My advice, save your money and pay to see GGG vs Alvarez next month in stead.

dont know if this is one, there are many...some are fake, but there is a buzz on other sites.

Not responsible.

So apparently Mayweather stands to make $300 million and McGregor $100 million for this "fight". Ali made $20 million (adjusted) for the Thrilla In Manilla.

I kinda don't give a shit but I'm watching I think there is something wrong with me.

I agree but hate them both, I always have respect for a fighter that doesn't have to run his mouth.

I'm enjoying just watching the guy try to sort the audio problem before it starts.

#20 1 year ago

The moment the fight starts I'm sure Youtube will be flooded with live streams.

#21 1 year ago

Total Sham. McGregor has literally a negative change to win. He's not a boxer facing one of the best boxers of our time.
He's just going to eat jabs all night, dance around like he wants a fight, nothing will happen, decision easy to mayweather.
Drunk MMA vs. Drunk Boxing fans riot and tear the place down in the crowd.

#22 1 year ago

Oh McGregor wins even if he loses. Any other UFC fighter ever get $100 million for one fight?

#23 1 year ago

In a hotel with free, but slow wifi.

No fight for me.

#24 1 year ago

Tyson vs Mac, now that's a fight! Two animals with that "unknown " factor.

I'm planning on watching this tomorrow for free. I'm certain it will be all over the web.

I know nothing about UFC but read an article today that referred to it as "homosexual skinhead wrestling"...is that accurate?

From what I've read, both guys are real scumbags in general so I'd have trouble "rooting" for either. This event seems like a WWE type of thing but where they really give each other brain damage. Meh.

#26 1 year ago

Always pull for the woman beating, piece of crap to get knocked out. McGregor isn't perfect but he hasn't been accused of that multiple times.

I don;t know if McGregor is a scumbag but I don't think so. He's said a bunch of racist shit for this fight but that's to sell it and to feed the already racist overtones of the fight. Great white hype and all.

Metyweather is of course a total woman beating shitbag.

No that's not accurate at all. UFC fighters are the best athletes there are probably. They are in tip top shape and they are fighting machines. Step in the octagon with one and find out for yourself. Call McGregor a homosexual skinhead and see how that works out for you.

So a woman beater vs a racist...that is still a rough one....double knock out?

My prediction: fight will be a snooze, nobody goes down, winner awarded on points---loser says he was robbed, drama continues.

Give me 1/10 of what he's making for this fight and you can watch me do it on PPV.

Wow. Easy tough guy, just asking a question. No need for the testosterone challenges.

I would rather NOT have CTE when I'm not quite out of middle-age. So, no thanks, no "sport" that rattles my brain. I have enough problems.

Seems a waste to become the best athlete only to have your brain hammered so you miss out on 30 years of your life.

Lol yeah for sure! I'd take my chances for that kind of money also. We probably wouldn't live to enjoy it is the only problem.

Are you suggesting that a world champion boxer like Mayweather would be unable to assimilate to "street fighting", even if he wanted to? Puleeeese. We're talking a one in a billion athlete/fighter. And there are others. Just because some people choose to fight like animals doesn't mean other people - fighters/boxers - want to. Or can't do it. I'll opine right here and now that if Floyd Mayweather spent the last 20 years "in the Octagon" that he'd kick McGregor's head in. But why would he do that? When he can fight in a far more civilized, artful manner for far more $?

And McGregor's mouth has been pretty big lately too. Makes a good target.

You don't get it. This is what they enjoy doing. McGregor likes to fight as much as we like to play pinball.

Mayweather couldn't compete in the octagon with any of the UFC fighters. These guys are martial arts experts. Mayweather would have absolutely a zero percent chance. If a fighter wants to prove how much of a bad ass he is, the octagon is where you prove it at, not in a boxing ring.

I partied hard last night at El Rusho/Iron Diamond so home tonight with the girls. Mayweather ko by 4th round.

If I found out pinball caused serious brain damage I'm confident I would sell my games.

Still, I say nobody gets cold cocked and fans are disappointed. These things usually don't live up to the hype machine they are based on unfortunately.

That would be Mayweather's MO. But he wins fights early by facing cocky, arrogant (yes I know that's a synonym), overconfident fighters who don't know how to fight smart, and think being over-aggressive is the way to win. I don't know MMA that well, so maybe that works in the octagon. But it don't work against Mayweather. Plus, he punches REALLY hard

On the other hand, Mayweather has clearly not been taking things seriously; maybe we have a Buster Douglas situation on our hands.

Most likely no since Buster Douglas was an actual boxer

Being overly aggressive doesn't even work in MMA...and they only go 3 rounds in non title fights.

Oy vey... 10pm CDT and they're just starting another fight. Looking like midnight Eastern now.

You are delusional. Boxing is the sweet science. A science to fighting that has been honed for millennia. UFC is still in its infancy. Mayweathers skill is far superior to McGregors. With that said, I would love to see a miracle and McGregor knock him out. Kick boxing would be a better fight, though Mayweather would still win.

Yeah, but if that happened, then he'd be like, "Wait...I gotta do this boxing shit AGAIN???"

I'm interpreting that as "we didn't get enough buys to justify this ridiculous purse, so we are waiting in hopes another million buys comes through in the next couple minutes!"

Ski mask city?! Man he is WWE all the way...

You guys are funny. The average ranked MMA fighter is making more per fight than the average ranked boxer. The only reason this is so high in the pay scale is because it's Mayweather.

The average MMA fighter would also kick the crap out of the average boxer in the octagon.

I think Mayweather will win in a boxing ring...but it would be even more one sided in the Octogan (To McGregor's advantage obviously).
