    Usually dude is in control of his craft. Has real good control of his trash talk but Dude has been acting all kinds of weird when it comes to Conor. He's lost control. Offering his own money up to help clown on Conor. Making vids with Nate Diaz. Talkin about jumpin into the mma world. Giving Conor all kinds of free press while Conor sits back and has a baby.

    Conor trolled mayweather beautifully. Got money all kind of shook like he's never been before.

    If they were to fight boxing rules, shook mayweather would be ko'd in 7.

    Floyd has no business being talked about in the fight business. The guy is a pillow fisted point boxer

    As long as he's talking about Conor it's all good.

    Nah, Floyd is just bored and he knows in the end all he has to do is show his last paycheck and he'll shut Conor up.

    You must be new to this. Floyd has always been a clown, especially when he talks trash. He's a silly guy, you don't remember him wearing sombreros, riding a Segway around his mansion, roller skate dancing, etc?

    He's not shook, he's bored and having fun.

    Who cares. Floyd is a boring ass point fighter with a loud mouth. Isn't that asshole retired?

    Go away.
    PS. Nice "fight of the Century"

    Or maybe he's just trying to do anything he can to get under Conor's skin and make the fight happen. Floyd is clearly interested in it and isn't just talking for the sake of talking, he does want it to happen. Not in MMA of course, but boxing, which is something Conor said he's definitely open to.

    The issue isn't Conor not taking the fight, it's the fact he's under contract and Dana/UFC doesn't want to co-promote just like what happened with Randy/Fedor. Dana/UFC have no interest in co-promoting anything, especially if it's with M1 Global.

    There's no way Dana/UFC want anything to do with co-promoting Conor/Mayweather with Mayweather promotions. There's that, and again, Conor is under contract with the UFC, he can't fight anywhere unless it's with the UFC, no matter what (combat) sport it is.

    Floyd knows this, but that doesn't mean he can't have some fun for the time being. The shit talking will only hype it up even more if it does happen one day. May as well start as soon as possible to get people interested and build it up over a good stretch of time.

    Floyd isn't shook. He knows that it will be settled in the boxing ring, why would he be shook? He's on a completely different level than Conor in boxing, he would pick Conor apart very, very easily and he knows it, and so does Conor, Dana, literally everybody knows it.

    Honestly, Conor is just preparing to lose no matter what in terms of the fight, but will be paid very well so that's a win in itself. He'll lose the fight, but make some damn good money doing it. No shame in losing to one of the greatest boxers ever in boxing.

    For Floyd to speak out this much lately, it's obvious that he's very interested in making this shit happen.

    So McGregor lost a boxing style mma fight to Nate Diaz and decided to shoot for a mercy takedown but he would knock out the best boxer in the world while wearing boxing gloves which are bigger and softer than mma gloves.... Hmm ok I see your logic.

    Yeah he's shook by a guy who got outboxed by nate diaz, who is a terrible boxer.

    Makes sense to me.

    Yup, the most watched and highest paid prize fighter of all time should definitely not talk about fighting. If his punches are so soft, I wonder why opponents dont just charge in at him like Ricky Hatton did.... All Canelo Alvarez had to do is walked through those punches and knock him out... I'm sure Conor is better and bigger than Canelo Alvarez who only walks around at 170...

    Mayweather would take the fight if the money was right. He would take it because he knows he'd beat Conor's ass from pillar to post.

    Conor would take it because it would be a huge pay day with absolutely nothing to lose. Nobody expects him to be able to beat Mayweather in a boxing match.

    Dana will never allow it to happen for any amount of money because he needs to keep the image of mma fighters being the superior fighters intact. Seeing his cash cow, 2 division champ beat up by a 39 year old retired boxer isn't something he'll let happen.

    He brutalized Nate until he gassed at a weight he's never fought before. Then he fights him again and knocks down Nate 3 times. If you think mates got better stand up then Conor, you haven't been watching the sport long if at all.

    Lol, the fact is he got hit by Nate Diaz... And Floyd barely got touched by Manny Pacquiao. Obviously you haven't been watching much mma to think a guy who gasses after three rounds of no clinching and straight punching, the same guy who got rocked by two of the slowest punches known to man is going to knock out the best boxer in 7 rounds. The same guy who gassed so hard against Diaz and the second fight after knocking him down 3x that he had to run around the ring for 30 seconds at a time...

    You do realize Floyd been hit in every fight right? He's been hurt and almost dropped. And he's been beat before pro. Gassing in mma is very different then gassing in boxing and clearly you don't get that. You can do exclusively boxing and cardio to prepare. You can't do that in the UFC. Also Conor fought 8 rds plus 1 minute in boxing time. Dude get your head out your ass. The only reason I'm saying Conor beats Floyd is not because he's a better boxer (we all know they are worlds apart) it's because Floyd is shook, he's on the other side of 40, hast fought for awhile and will be the much much smaller man. All this can't be good for Floyd.
