    We've all seen it happen, a MMA fighter gets rocked and reverts to his or her instincts and muscle memory and goes for the desperation takedown. They will even wrestle the ref on occasion. This fight could turn into a dangerous situation for Floyd if Conor, in a diminished capacity, were to panic wrestle with no one in the ring to pull him off. And you know those boxing refs won't know what to do. Even Queer Street Conor crushes Floyd in a grappling match and once he mounts, he will rain gnp or he might grab a rnc before he regains his senses. If Floyd was smart, he would insist on having a MMA ref or a boxing ref AND a MMA ref in the ring to maintain order in this likely scenario.

    Herb Dean would stop the fight after the first jab.

    The ref handled the Maidana takedown attempts fine, I don't think it will really be a problem. Pretty sure even a Boxing ref is smart enough to notice a takedown and pull the guy off, they aren't retarded.

    The thread title actually sounds like a good idea, then he goes all crazy talking about a dazed Conor going for a flying double armbar or something!

    Definitely need Big John to pull Conor off Floyd after he drops him and go for the ground and pound.

    Big John may have knocked out Aldo, but no one is saving Conor in this one.

    I think Conor fans are just hoping Big John would land an illegal knee to Floyd like he did to Aldo to help fuel the hype train. I still can't believe the Conor v Aldo fight wasn't declared a no contest after McCarthy pulled that bullshit cheap shot on Jose.

    I saw a lot of wrestling background on Floyd against Maidana, so I think he is going to be fine
