Hi guys. I'm sure nearly everyone knows about the upcoming August 26th fight so I wanted to see peoples opinions on the topic and how you think the fight will go down. Sorry if there is already a thread on this.
I wish UFC was like it was when it first started, there wasn't any weight divisions and you had guys fighting 3-4 fights tournament style in the same evening, plus head butting was legal. That's when I started watching. A big huge wrestler guy, going against a little guy who did karate, it was like bloodsport in a way.They should do something they haven't each done like sumo wrestling.
And Federer beats them both at Tennis, which is about as relevant as the hypothetical MMA fight.If it's a boxing match, Mayweather wins.
If it's an MMA match, McGregor wins.
I used to pay attention to martial arts & boxing but don't anymore. I'm still in touch with people who are involved at various levels including some who's living it is.I'm still debating about whether or not to buy the fight. I rather like boxing, but I'm not sure how good this match will even be. Mayweather is a defensive fighter, so it'll be Floyd jumping around the ring while Colin swings at the air.
I agree it'll likely be a farce but McGregor does have a couple of things going for him. He could come into the fight 15-20 lbs heavier than Floyd and Floyd might be beyond the point where he can knock anyone out. If he works his way inside and takes a few shots along the way, he might just get lucky and land a good one. It's all ego at that point. The money is already in the bank it's a question of how much punishment he is willing to absorb to have a shot at winning.Possibly the best pound-for-pound boxer in history vs someone who has never boxed professionally. It’s a farce and going to be a whitewash. I’d be surprised if McG lasts to the second round.
That said, with odds of 40 or 50-1 on McG in some places, I might stick £20 on him just in case he gets a lucky punch in!
I don't have a link handy but I'm sure I read a couple of days ago that the betting in Vegas was 23 - 1 in favour of McGregor. If he wins it'll be a huge loss for the bookies unless late money goes with Floyd.I'm expecting a McGregor win followed by it being revealed that the only person that bet on him winning was Mayweather.
