    I'm wondering how a fight in the octagon between these two would look with the following rules in mind?

    "4 ounce gloves, no shoes, 5-five minute rounds in 155 division.

    No kicks, no take downs, no elbows, no knees. Certain things will be allowed like the clinch."

    Joe Rogan thinks Conor will dominate the fight with these rules, that he'll use the clinch to his advantage. How does that work, he can't elbow or throw knees, why would he dominate the clinch game against Floyd?

    Take a look-see at Floyd clinching with Cotto.....



    Why would Conor fare any better than Cotto in this type of situation?

    Never. I believe this is the first time such a thought provoking discussion has been attempted.

    Wow, 18 months and 8 posts. Guess I’ll let you slide. Generally, this topic is discussed every couple days, you just gotta go down a page or two depending on your settings to find the threads.

    Search function also works good.

    Can't see how cage boxing works to Conors favour. Mayweather would school him again under such rules if no kicks, takedowns etc

    In my defense, I did attempt to search for this specific fight, all I could find was discussions concerning them fight a boxing rematch with boxing rules or them fighting MMA with MMA rules. I didn't see anything that included the parameters set forth in my OP.

    So a boxing match with MMA gloves? Still essentially boxing. It gives Conor a slightly better puncher's chance, but Mayweather still wins easily 19 times out of 20.

    This wouldn't even be an MMA fight, it'd be a boxing match inside the cage.

    Retarded. Don't buy it for a second.

    The only way Conor wins is if Floyd breaks both of his hands because of the smaller gloves and can't continue.

    Rogan is right though. Ronda wasn't a once ever female athlete, but she sure as hell a once ever female prize fighter, if you take everything into account. There will be better athletes with better skills but none of them will ever create the hype, PPV sales, drama, depression and popcorn like Ronda did.

    I have a better idea. Conor v Khabib with normal MMA rules.

    Conor got outwrestled in their first bout

    With 6 months of MMA training Floyd would most likely submit Conor
