Again Mayweather doesn't have the ability to man up.

Watched more boxing than MMA and neutral to Floyd, but give McGregor his due for stepping up

Yeah, i think a lot of men would really struggle to 'step up' for 100 million dollars LOL!

Yeah give all the credit in the world to McGregor for accepting this 100 million dollar paycheck.

Very tough position to be in for him.

Mayweather getting in the octagon is not the same as McGregor getting in the boxing ring. If the roles were reversed and Mayweather had the MMA skills, McGregor would not get the octagon either. Even though McGregor knows he may get owned he also knows that boxing is not as brutal as MMA. Only so many ways to get hurt in boxing while in MMA there are a multitude of ways. Boxing is safer and bigger payday.

Umm...

Yeah no.

There's one main reason boxing is significantly more dangerous and drastically more likely to cause permanent brain injury, especially over time.

The standing 8 count and 3 knock down rule means you have a fighter that, more often than not (taking out slips and what not), has already taken a significant injury to the brain. The repeated nature of boxing, which allows a fighter to continue fighting, is what make it much more dangerous.

Sorry, but this is one of the most uneducated posts I've seen on here. MMA is not more dangerous than boxing.

But I will agree that it is 100% a bigger payday.

I thought it went without saying but apparently that's not the case!

I think he was referring to a one time deal in this case.

Long term, boxing is a very brutal and taxing sport. See: Muhammad Ali.


But for Connor to take a single fight for 100 mill...I think that's a lot easier than for Floyd to do the same except in a UFC ring. The chances of Floyd sustaining a serious face, leg or arm injury (perhaps even snapping or breaking bones) I'd think is much higher than Connor sustaining some freak head injury off 12 or less rounds of sanctioned boxing with padded gloves.

Kickboxing? Different story.



It's amazing the trajectory Connor's career took in such little time. Basically went from being homeless with just a little under $500 to his name to being on the verge of having a net worth within 9 digits in the course of 4 years.

Padded gloves are the reason boxing is more dangerous. No matter which way you spin it, boxing is the more dangerous sport.

I dint know McGregor was going to stay in boxing permanently?? I'm talking about a 1 fight deal. I understand the longevity of boxing and would could happen. Remember This isn't like Connor is fighting a heavy handed fighter. This is Mayweather we are talking about.

It this was Canelo or Triple G, heck even PAC man then I would kinda agree with you but as I said before he is fighting a show man not a knock out artist.

How would you like to get punched in the head by Mike Tyson in his prime? I don't think it would feel very good...but then again i probably wouldn't feel it until i woke up.

Rofl, someone who cleary doesnt have any clue about boxing. Mayweather is arguably the best ever! You understand what boxing is? Knock out artists do boxers the favor of not being incredibly injured. Its the fighters like Mayweather that dont knock you out but repeatedly hit you that do damage.

Yep, not worth it. Too many ways to see it for free.

If I was McGregor, I would at some point in this fight fake like I was going to kick to try to score a cheap knockout.

The fighters Floyd has ''struggled'' with were pressure fighters, people who could and would bang on the inside, like Castillo, like Maidana.
