    It's very mainstream and the UFC should love it. Technically Conor is promoting his fight with Khabib just by tweeting about Floyd.

    Of course, there was zero chance of losing + guaranteed 300 mil paycheck.

    Easy rebuttal to those who said he could've rematched Pacquiao or Canelo for the same amount.

    #1 Those rematches wouldn't have sold as much as Conor - Floyd
    #2 Pacquiao had a 25% chance of beating a 41 year old Floyd and Canelo II would've been a pick em' fight. Why risk those plebs erasing a perfect legacy for less money than beating a mediocre MMA fighter?

    Of course they both do. As soon as the fight was done they were all but making out at the press conference. Conor has always said he looked up to Floyd but when the opportunity arouse, his modus operandi changed. Dont buy wolf tix.

    This is the first time that Floyds had an opponent that could match him in mainstream media popularity and in the gift of gab and he appreciated that very much
    Floyd didnt have to do 100% of the promotion work for this fight like he usually does, he could just sit back, relax and let Conor do Conor things and still sell 4 million PPVs
    I'd be grateful too

    Of course he was grateful. He was broke and needed to find a way to fleece a bunch of idiots out of 90 bucks. Also your name is spelled wrong.

    Grateful for sure.

    A guy with a huge clueless following that could be exploited for hundreds of millions of dollars and you're in no danger because conor is an absolute bum in boxing and you're an all time great.

    Let a bum talk, bring his bum fans, no have to train hard or take the fight seriously and make 300 to beat up a scrub.

    Sounds good.

    It's my dogs name, I originally had it spelled with a C but the Vet kept calling him Crisis. After that it was easier to switch to a K than to continue correcting others. My other dog is named Gannicus.
