    If Conor lost, would he still claim "it wasn't a real fight?"

    Conor would beat him easily. It is stupid to even argue, even dumber than the idea of him beating Floyd in a boxing match, really.

    Remember that uppercut he landed in the first round on little Floyd's head? Yeah, imagine taking that baby in 4 oz gloves. That overhand right Conor threw after probably also lands in smaller gloves, too. McGregor would probably then quickly take Mayweather to the mat and submit him, or he'd take a small step to the side and kick him right in his cranium. Fight's over just like that, folks.

    If Conor “carries” Floyd all u would hear around here is how Conor was actually losing to a boxer in a mma bout. That’s the double standard.

    Conor would literally kick the shit out of him. A few body kicks and thete would be stool in shorts. Shit kicked out. I would like to see Aldo vs Floyd in hopes it would look exactly like Aldo Faber

    Pretty sure Floyd can find a plan to counter that. Floyd is a master tactician and is faster and more agile. Also the boxing is so much in Floyds favor.

    True. But, as much we love to think Conor fights for Sherdog's honor/oppinion, I think he'd do it for dat extra $100 mill and carry Floyd till an UD, if needed.

    There are many times when a non kicker beat a kicker. Look at Johnson vs Barbosa and Johnson aint no Floyd.

    Think about it, if Floyd can some how defend the kicks, and use his speed, and head movement, he can tee off on Conor especially since Conor's stamina is shit.

    Anyone saying otherwise is a fool.

    Yeah but Johnson has been training against kickers for years

    If you didn't know he's an MMA fighter.

    Floyd would lose to MM in a kickboxing match too, it's not impressive and who gives a fuck?

    Conor should win unless Floyd could develop a decent kick defense game then sure it could be interesting. Floyd still has a massive speed, striking, footwork, and cardio advantage.

    Too many what ifs to be 100% about anything.

    And Like I said Floyd is a master Tactician. He's fight IQ is far beyond many fighter. If he were to set a strategy I am sure he would be able to pressure Connor into a boxing match. Im not saying Floyd would win but you guys think Floyd wouldnt be able to counter a kick..
