    ... if no take-downs were permitted - just stand-up fighting. But with UFC gloves, and kicking - including leg kicks - and elbows permitted.

    Mayweather doesn't know how to fight like that. He would get fucked up badly.

    McGregor so long as he utilise the rules/situation/advantage

    Make a tiny mistake and Mayweather can easily cause large problems for him

    Anything other than straight up boxing has to favour Conor.

    I don't think the gloves make a difference as floyd is a master at avoiding taking the blunt of a punch. He can avoid the elbows as well.

    I am less convinced he could quickly learn to adapt to kicks, but I wouldn't be surprised.

    I don't think he could learn to defend takedowns or the groundgame at this point. Those aren't really Conor's strong suits, but he'd have a huge advantage.

    So, full mma it's all Conor. Kickboxing... it's a toss up but favors Conor. Boxing Floyd kills him.
