    Basically says that the only reason Conor landed more shots than Pacq/Cotto was because he was actually trying to counterpunch & "box" the boxers, whereas with Conor, he just walked him down without moving his head much.



    The final nail in the coffin for Conor fans

    Robin Black will still find a way to dispute this

    Floyd fought Conor MUCH more aggressively than he normally fights. He went after him and gave zero fux.

    He really made that entertaining for the fans.

    My understanding is that Floyd really didn't fight his usual style

    And how did Floyd do in his MMA match against Conor?

    Oh that's right, he doesn't want to compete against Conor in Conor's sport.

    "Conor's sport" paid him $3 mil + $5 mil in PPV points

    "Floyd's sport" paid him $30 mil + $70 mil in PPV points


    If Conor was good enough to be a full-time boxer, he'd be doing just that.

    Unfortunately ex-plumbers with D level athleticism must stick to MMA.

    What happens is that Mayweather is usually way more boring than the borefest we saw him fight against McGregor.

    Final nail in the coffin? That loss was a hell of a lot easier to accept as a fan than the loss to Nate Diaz.

    People are trying too hard to hurt Conor fans.

    Yes.. we know Floyd never lies or anything.. after all he said he wasn't going to take a step backwards which couldn't have been a bigger lie.

    Sounds like Nate - "I meant to get knocked down by Conor to bait him into going to the ground"

    Nate says he was in Cabo before the Conor fight.. Floyd said he didn't train at all before the Conor fight..

    Pauli has been biting all the other fighters BS versus Conor too...

    Nate said Conor "whimpered" from body shots.. then Pauli says the same thing..

    Pauli said he wasn't really knocked down by Conor.. also like Nate..

    Yea, because he doesn't need to. Conor was the B side chasing a huge pay day, not Floyd.

    Not really since Conor beat Nate when he took Nate seriously. Beat him easy actually other than cardio in the second fight. Just like Conor would beat Floyd easy in a shortened fight.

    No shit. Anyone who ever watched a Mayweather fight, and also has eyes, could tell that.
    I actually can't tell if hardcore Conor fans really literally DKSAB or if they are just blind huggers and know what happened, but are trolling?
    Like no, Conor did not do better than all Floyds recent opponents, he got stopped. How is that better than making it to the end of regulation, for a decision? Lol.
    The uppercut they keep saying was Conor's best punch, it wasn't. It was clearly the bodyshot Floyd tried to say was low, it was clean. Conor just was not smart enough to capitalize on it and again moved to take the back and hammerfist or whatever. The ref broke them up for that, not for low blow.
    Boxing is a huge part of MMA, fans can't be that clueless to what they're watching, can they? Also, is it just boxing they don't understand or do they watch MMA the same way? If so, it's no wonder we see such idiotic opinions on here, so much so, they seem like troll jobs. Is that what they actually see/think? Geezus I hope not.

    Mayweather shouldn't have to state the obvious, but unfortunately most of Conor's fans are actually that stupid

    He's not saying anything we didn't know, but the fact is, he still got hit a hell of a lot by an amateur. If you're saying anyone with no skills could hit Floyd if he walked forward, then you're basically saying boxing is a joke of a sport.

    Plus, you can tell Floyd was annoyed that Conor continues to get credit for doing well. He gets asked about it by every reporter. He probably wanted to embarrass MMA, and it backfired. He should have stuck to his original formula.
