    dunno if people are serious or not.

    Fighters like Nam Phan and Dennis Siver would beat Floyd lol

    Hell, even Ray Borg might sub him

    Why do you bold/color your text? I have a hunch that this website means a lot more to you than it should. All of your posts scream ‘insecure’.

    The boxing fight was a lame spectacle. An MMA fight would be even more silly. So yeah, book the garbage, people will pay top dollars to watch it...

    Conor would only need a kick or 2 to end it. Even if Conor gets rocked he could easily panic wrestle and finish Floyd on the ground. Plus Floyd doesn't have 1 punch KO power. Anyone that thinks Floyd has a chance in an MMA match is fucking retarded. The match would last as long as Conor wished it to.

    Lmao
    Conor will kick his little leg off.
    Also, he would definitely outbox him with 4oz gloves. No covering up for Floyd’s manlet ass.

    Let's not turn the ignorance the other way around. Let's not be like the people who believed Conor could beat Floyd in boxing. Floyd is a boxer, not a MMA fighter. And that's ok. Would he beat Conor in MMA? Logic says no. But still, none of us know how much Floyd could learn at his age. What if he picked up TDD really, really quick? It's not impossible. We can't really weigh on the outcome of a fight without knowing how much Floyd could learn.

    No. Floyd was not allowed to put a bet on himself on a specific round since that would be fixing the fight. He was only allowed to bet on whether he wins or loses.
    And ur a fuckin moron if u think McGregor made it to the 10th because of his skills.
    I've watched every Mayweather fight and anyone who watches boxing could tell Floyd was carrying him. Floyd went 33% for the first half of the fight, if that.

    The only reason that McGregor was allowed to box was because Floyd told Dana that he wouldn't massacre him and keep it interesting. Little did Dana know that Floyd just killed MMA.
    No one watches it anymore

    Conor wins in the cage but you are of course wrong , Floyd does not have 1 punch KO power in 8oz gloves but as you could clearly see McG which has such attribute in MMA was not even close to have any impact on Floyd in 8oz , if Floyd hits Conor clean with 4Oz Connor is going bye bye and thats all there is to it , he knows how to hit clean and sharp , If conor plans to box floyd in a cage he will lose and lose badly.

    Floyd's only chance would be if Conor's ego made him stand and box. I think Conor would soften up with leg kicks and get the take down and TKO him, Probably in the first three minutes.

    Ahhhh hemmm....ahhh, I hate to be the voice of reason here, but Mayweather got a fucking boxing clinic put on him for the first time in his life and then McGregor gassed. That is what the fight was: a bizarre boxing clinic by an MMA fighter on the greatest known boxer ever, followed by said MMA fighter gassing and not even a knock down. Big George has been speaking the truth on this, but so many on this forum are so emotionally invested that they can not admit, nor see, that CMac was beating Floyd at his game - in fact, he has been the only 'boxer' to ever do so and we all thought Conor out boxing Floyd would be the least likely out come.

    you do know the longer the fight went the more Pay Per View buys they would get? Kinda makes sense to go toward the last rounds. dont be a fool and believe Conor did shit. He had no business being in the ring with floyd and we saw that by floyd not boxing..walking him down the whole fight. no faints..no sparring in training..no running..zero defense. even then he was throwing punches just for amusement untilt he later rounds when all of a sudden his punches had alittle more pop on them. fight was for fun..take it for what it was.

    Floyd should take the fight at 145. He smashes conor.

    He could theoretically be taught enough in a short amount of time to stall and negate Conor's ground game long enough to get stood up. That's basically what he did in the Pac fight, right?

    And he probably would throw hard elbows in the clinch since his hands are fragile, and the gloves are small. If you know how to deliver force in a short distance punch, learning an elbow isn't that hard.

    I dunno. Never say never.
