    Is it fair to call those people stupid? Watching because you can afford it and think it's funny, like WWE, fair enough, but watching with interest?

    Agreed.
    Firstly, Floyd isn't capable of dishing out the kind of pain Conor is used to in MMA - secondly, Conor wouldn't mind anyway, he's hardly going to regret the fight given the money. And thirdly, I don't agree about him not being fit to lace Floyd's gloves. Floyd in a clever fight dodger (he wouldn't fight Manny in his prime) who has referees that protect his style, while Conor will fight anyone, and is very capable in his own sport.
    In his own sport, yes, very capable, and to be fair it would be a closer/different prospect if Floyd was to fight MMA rules. McGregor's MMA skills count for little in a boxing ring if he can't use them. Resilience to pain/punishment in the boxing ring just makes you a punch bag, (see Eubanks Jn last night). McGregor just does not have the hand skill and finely honed ring craft that he will need against one of the best boxers in the world. IMHO, unless Floyd dispatches him in the first couple of rounds it will be a case of MaGregor grabbing on dear for life and hoping for a lucky big one.
    Have you seen the Muppet Show........

      I bet the fight will be called off due to ring interference from Hulk Hogan.

      If it was an MMA fight it wouldn't last more than a minute. Also there is no danger of Mayweather knocking him out either.

      I'm going for McGregor to lose on a disqualification - he'll be so hyped up and then so frustrated that at some stage the MMA reflex will emerge.

      If McGregor does anything other than box within the rules, he's financially ruined for life.

      There must be something in his contract that says if he does anything other than box he loses his purse.

      Dana said that it's very clear in the contract that if CM does anything other than box, there are huge financial ramifications.
      Then you've got the potential lawsuits where FM will claim damages that amount to hundreds of millions of losses which he could have earned from future fights.

      It's literally career ending if CM does anything outside of the rules.

      Really? 49 fights with 26 KO's at top pro level?

      Mayweathers hands would break before he could do that kind of damage.
      1 KO in the last 18 years.
      4 KO's in his career.

      Wasn't the KO against someone who had dropped their hands also?
