    Oh and what's that on Dana's lip? Either that's an infection or baldy forgot to wipe the crumbs off his mouth again. :rolleyes:o_O



    "There's a lot of talk going on between Floyd and Conor right now. Even if they were to box, look at Manny Pacquiao-Floyd Mayweather. It was a fight that everyone wanted to see for years. It took almost 10 years to make that fight, and they are the same sport! There's no way this fight would ever happen."

    "If they really fought, it would be ugly. It would be ugly for Floyd. Conor has more weapons and tools than Floyd Mayweather does."

    “We’re focused very heavily on Russia right now. First of all, there’s tons of talent coming out of Russia, and a lot of fans. There’s a fighter named Khabib who’s from Russia, and he’s insanely popular."

    "The next fight could be Conor vs. Khabib.”

    dana is a promoter. not someone who tells the truth. he knows he's saying goofy crap. conor would have zero chance in a boxing match against floyd. but the fight will never happen. in the meantime, by talking about it a lot, it keeps both of them in the news and relevant.

    They're going to avoid Mayweather and I do not blame them. Just top MMA guys from now on and Nate is not one of them.

    "If they really fought, it would be ugly. It would be ugly for Floyd. Conor has more weapons and tools than Floyd Mayweather does."

    How does McGregor has more weapons in boxing than Floyd? I mean, if they ever fight it would be a boxing match obviously, does Dana really thinks Floyd would like to join the UFC when he was winning at least 50 million per fight in boxing?

    Mayweather in the Pacquiao fight (1 fucking fight): ~150 million in purse

    Conor in all his UFC fights: ~15 million in purses, and I'm being generous

    Boxing: Conor wins via only via fluke cut or DQ, looks more competitive then Floyd looks in MMA.
    MMA: Floyd wins occasionally via KO within the first 30 seconds unless Conor decides to stand with him then the wins become more frequent (Conor is still a heavy, heavy favorite). If Conor fights smart and takes the fight to the ground, Floyd would look worse at MMA then Conor does at boxing but due to the nature of MMA Floyd would win more if they had 10,000 fights of each.

    They may let Conor bring an actual weapon to the fight.

    MMA-rules: ugly for Floyd
    Boxing-rules: ugly for Conor

    If rankings matter Conor should fight Khabib next.

    Floyd has 22 or 23 knockouts but that was earlier in his career before he started to have a lot of trouble with his hands.

    Diaz is not a power puncher at all, he's more of a volume puncher who throws at less than 100% to conserve energy - one of the reasons he has great cardio. But the comparison is not relevant in the least.

    Floyd wins by UD, easily.
