    22 year old Floyd already had a hall of fame resume.

    Conor is still the closest thing:
    - biggest MMA name
    - networth 200 - 300 million dollars

    but he lacks the resume.

    Conor is the Floyd Mayweather of MMA ... not Jones, not Khabib or Daniel Cormier.

    You made this thread to bait Khabib dick riders over the obvious undefeated similarities. I'm sure it will work. You ass.

    Don't you have to be undefeated to be Floyd Mayweather Jr?

    Nah, Floyd is the opposite of entertaining.

    Sure. There's some similarities, but a lot of differences as well. Floyd is undefeated and a very defensive fighter, while Conor has losses and an aggressive fighting style.

    Nobody in MMA is exactly like Floyd Mayweather. Whenever someone says that "someone is the someone of something else", it's objectively pointless.

    Conor is a bigger draw than Floyd EVER was though.

    He did 4.6 with Floyd and 2.4 with Khabib before Khabib was even a big star like he has become. He apparently just did 2 million with Cowboy who was never any kind of PPV draw. He did 1.5 with Eddie who was never a PPV draw.

    Floyd only did crazy numbers with De La Hoya, Pac, and Conor, other massive PPV stars in their own right. Against Berto he did 300k. Conor would do more than 300k against Roxanne Modafferi.

    Not really. Mayweather is undefeated, arguably one of the best in the sport ever, and actually fought contenders and champions.

    Conor is not, and does not.

    Mayweather is a one of kind freak of nature. When he was in his prime it was like watching a fish swim or a bird fly. Near perfect in every aspect of the fight game. No one will replicate what he was able to do. Conor ain't Mayweather's asshole.

    Conor is a bigger draw than Floyd. Not nearly as good though.

    Yeah he did 2m -3m vs Cowboy, but the average boxing fan is smarter, so thats why they didnt buy the Floyd vs Berto fight and we both know why.

    Floyd is black, had a boring style and no UFC marketing machine ... that shit deserves respect.

    Floyd sold 4-5 million PPVs as a defensive fighter

    offensive Floyd aka Pretty Boy Floyd would have sold 10 million ppvs

    two completely different fighters

    Khabib is closer. Undefeated. Dominant. His stock has gone up tremendously since his fight with Conor, like how Floyd became the king of boxing after defeating ODLH.

    Conor has the money, the popularity but he lacks the resume.

    Khabib lacks the money and popularity AND resume.

    canelo fight was huge for floyd. notbody bought the berto fight cause it was a can fight that was to get him to 48-0 before fighting pacman.

    did conor put in a 500 million in the bank like floyd did vs pacman?
