    Why is the general consensus on here that Conor would easily beat Floyd in an MMA match as if Floyd would have no chance? Floyd knows how to box with or without boxing gloves judging from his non glove sparring footage.

    Not only that, but Conor's wrestling is average at best. Teach Floyd how to avoid takedown's and deal with kicks and he has a great chance.

    I would give the advantage to Conor because of familiarity but Floyd would be a challenge. Floyd is not some un-athletic fry cook like CM Punk. This guy is an athletic freak who would excel at any combat sport he chooses to do.

    Prime Floyd could beat Conor whether it's boxing or MMA. Floyd already toyed with Conor in boxing and allowed him to go past the 1st round. He could do it again in MMA.

    Floyd blessed Conor's bum life with Floyd money in boxing. No doubt Conor wants to be blessed again in the biggest UFC fight ever.

    Fighters train for year and years to defend takedowns and submissions and they still get taken down and subbed , i think that in the feet floyd could have beaten conor even in mma but conor would have couture'd him .

    To teach Floyd how to deal with kicks and grappling he would have to change his entire footwork and distance notion, what would wreck a mess in his ultra fine tuned game. Basically to learn good defense he would need to heavily sacrifice his offense.


    Just see how much Floyd relies on clinch stalling, just that would give any mma fighter plenty of opportunities.

    Floyd is a monster A Athlete. An athletic freak. It wouldn't take him long at at to figure anything out quickly in MMA. He's a natural talent.

    The chances of Floyd beating Conor in MMA are less than Conor beating Floyd in a boxing match

    This guy is clinically obsessed with Conor McGregor and makes threads about him non-stop. If the mods have a conscience they'll PM him some good mental health resources and revoke his thread-making privileges.

    "Teach floyd to avoid takedowns" so what we need a delorean to plan this fight?

    Yea Ima guess the bigger longer guy who outwrestled holloway and has been 1 on 1 with a no-gi world champ for over a year will have no problem taking down and submitting a 40yr old boxer with no wrestling/mma grappling experience.

    You catch that uppercut and overhand right that Conor landed on Floyd in Floyd's own sport in the very first round? Imagine feeling that with only 4 oz. gloves. It would have hurt Floyd and if it didn't knock him out, Conor probably would have taken him down and ground and pounded him afterwards.

    Conor would annihilate Mayweather in an MMA fight. Floyd has even less chance of winning in the cage than Conor did of winning inside a boxing ring.
