    It would be an incredible achievement to go along with being UFC's first ever 2 division champ. I think it is a fair question.

    IF he does that it would be hard to argue.

    I don't think he'll pull it off. He will get tooled and embarrassed if he ever boxes Floyd.

    Of course. And then he will just get into baseball and win the World Series.

    If Conor actually won. The internet would implode and Sherdog and other MMA sites would be shutdown for days.

    I'm from the future, and I can confirm that this is what MayMac looks like X100, minus the takedown attempt

    No unless he moved up 20 weight classes and beat Tyson Fury.

    No, its a boxing match so hes expected to win. If he were to beat Conor in MMA you could make the case

    no

    Rocky Marciano retired undefeated. Joe Louis had almost 70 wins in his career. Even in MMA there are many fighters with a lot of great fights and relevant wins through a bigger timespan. Fedor, Silva, GSP, Aldo, Dan Henderson, Big Nog, Werdum... speaking of Werdum, the guy is a multi BJJ champion and was HW champion. He also beat Fedor.

    Conor crushed Aldo and that was historic. other than that, he didn't do and won't do much to ever be considered something so insane as greatest of all time in all combat sports. There are many fighters everywhere who have more respect for their craft than Conor. He is a creature of his time, of money over honor and social media bullshit. He barely beat Nate Diaz and lost to him too. But he is gonna fight Floyd, so people forget about it. Maybe he throws a punch that connects and Floys gets knocked out, but so what. One fight doesn't make anyone the greatest ever. It's really shortsighted to think that.

    Rocky fought bums for that record. His best win is joe Louis who was old as hell. Job Louis would've murked rocky if he was younger when they fought.

    No. There's nothing cool about beating a 40 year old at anything

    Unless that 40 year old is Dan Kelly.

    no. mayweather is 40 year old and hasnt fought in 2 years. he isnt p4p anymore.
    ignorant mma fans like you think mayweather is the greatest boxer ever because you heard someone say it before and dont know anything else about boxing.
    but the most absurd thing about your thread is that you even see a possibility that mcgregor could ever beat a top50 boxer.

    If he wins I would say it's hard to argue that a champ coming from UFC (the premiere organization of the only combat sport that really matters), beating an all-time great in the most globally popular fighting sport at his own game, isn't the GOAT of combat sports.
