    You don't understand it because it's complete bullshit.

    That happened when McGregor tapped to a guy who was on a beach just days before they fought. Not Khabib.

    I never believed he would ko him but I voted him on the poll here because I'm a fan (still am - sigh) and wanted him to win. I think a corrupt dec or fixed fight could have been a way.
    I did bet correctly on him taking one round and was glad for that lol.

    In hindsight it was crazy to think that, yes. But what about Logic vs Paulie? Did anyone give Lobov a chance at beating him? He did end up beating Paulie so taking that into account, thinking an elite MMA striker can beat a smaller boxer is not insane. This discussion is quite pathetic because before the fight there are always two sides that are 100% certain on the outcome and the side that was right will shame the others’ pick.

    Partially about sportsbooks trying to push the action the other way.

    There's very little value in betting Floyd at -1000 or whatever he opened at. A big bettor would have to bet like hundreds of thousands of millions for the book to even feel it.

    Because they were taking pretty much all the action on Conor (because he was priced so well), they lower the price to give incentive to Floyd bettors to attempt to make more money.

    I'm more concerned over people believing that Ronda Rousey would be able to beat Floyd Mayweather

    Paulie was shot to bits, has hands made of glass (predictably breaking one in the first round) and was fighting in a different sport. And still won in a lot of people's eyes.

    Nope, i fully understand Conor fans have more interest in Conor than they do in boxing or MMA.

    I guess I was one of the few apparently that knew Fliyd would beat the shite out of McGregor. Still, I did want to see McGoat flatten him of course...still didnt bet on Conor. Was too easy of a bet. I believe it was 0.02 for Flizzy as the Fave

    People don't realize that the size of gloves in a MMA vs. Boxing totally changes how you box in a match. In MMA you can't use your fists to block a lot of the punches which totally changes the game.

    Trump supporters are the reason.

    They don’t understand boxing and think all fighting is the same with different rules. Since they don’t understand the sport they don’t understand skill level. So they get hyped on a guy with a strong left hand.

    Plus the boxing gloves are more padded

    That is absolutely bonkers. From -2500 to -400, just wow. Proves how stupid ppl are, nevermind those that are still convinced the fight was competitive.

    It's sad an embarrassing that Mario Lopez has better insight on boxing than Schaub does.
