    I see a lot of Conor hate here of late RE: ducking and not defending, rightly so.

    Was thinking today, in his book, Jack Slack odes to McGregor having studied Mayweather, in terms of making big money.

    We all know that Floyd realised that if he plucked the most worthy contender of Mexican heritage and fought on Cinco De Mayo - it was guaranteed to do massive numbers.

    Is it inconcenivable to think that McGregor is trying to adopt this, in light of Kavanaghs "not until at least April" statement recently?

    Either Ferguson (Mexican Heritage, El Cucuy) or even Diaz to a point, if marketed correctly in the Latin-American demographic, represent a huge opportunity for Conor to piggyback off this winning formula.

    Dawned on me today, maybe I'm too baked but I think it has legs as a theory as to why the wait

    Nah, Mexicans like boxing so it works for boxing.

    Irish like Conor so doesn’t matter when he fights.

    Conor is very a big supporter of mexican culture, so I definitely could see him treating the mexican people to such a wondrous gift.

    Doubt it, the fight prob happens on superbowl weekend.

    That WOULD make sense though but It's too far away.

    Exactly, it doesn't matter who he fights the Irish will pay to watch, fighting a Mexican adds on a whole other market

    I think Cain blew the Mexican market getting KO’d in 60 seconds on the Fox debut
