McGregor is only a 4-1 longshot, so it seems he is being given a good enough chance by the guys who know best $$$$.

Rocky was about the same odds against Ivan Drago.

Not the way it works, Misty.    The odds depend completely on how many are betting on each one.    Vegas adjusts the odds so the same number of people bet on each.    4-1 simply means quite a few people are betting on McG.

 

I heard 40-1.   Sounds like it was adjusted, maybe?   


My doctor told me to start killing people.   Well, not  in those exact words.   He said I had to reduce the stress in my life.    Same thing, really.

Fight has been delayed.   Problems w/ some streaming, I think.

Embarrassment for Boxong to allow McGregor to look that good. Mayweather would be in the hospital in less than a round in the octagon. Sad.

Apples to Oranges man. If the fight wasn't stopped he would have gotten embarrassed and knocked out. 

I will say Conner put up a solid fight and he certainly deserves credit for the fight he put up. 

McGregor isn't a boxer and Mayweather isn't a MMA fighter

Fight was better than I expected. I knew Connor would tire out and get beat if it went past 6 rounds.

If MayW wanted - he could take him out in a NY minute....

 

 I'm figuring he'll carry McG for a few. 

 

  Its crazy people are really paying money for this.  

 

Nostradamus right here.  A short fight would benefit no one.

What's crazy is people bet on McGreggor.  Emotion overruling judgment yet again.  Vegas says thanks.

Exactly. Conor wasn't able to keep up the pace, he needed to score an early KO. He sounded happy with his lo$$.

Mayweather has NO shot at looking as good as Conor did if the roles were reversed.

Totally agree but it doesn't matter. Conor needs to work on stamina. If he boxed someone his size (GGG or Canelo) he gets embarrassed though.

Obviously not. It's not even debateable. But a world class boxer just demonstrated that an MMA fighter cannot out box him. And, McGregor came out of it with a huge amount of respect. If the fight wasn't stopped, I highly doubt anyone would even try to say Conner had a shot. Another round and he would have been destroyed. It was perfect how it ended.

I think outlast is a better description. Conor outoboxed him early and was clearly winning the boxing match against the best ever. Stamina was the difference here.

But that's boxing. Especially Mayweather. He's one of the best defensive boxers in history. Yet he was forced to be more aggressive. McGregor brought it. But had the fight not been stopped, Mayweather would have wore him out to the point he would have gotten knocked out. That's the difference between a boxer vs. MMA in a boxing setting. All that matters is the end.

One thing is clear. An MMA boxer can compete agianst the best ever in boxing. Mayweather should have embarrassed him but didn't. A fight in the octagon couldn't sell at this point. If Conor could hold his own for 10 rounds in boxing, Floyd has not shot at surviving any MMA rules.

Uh oh.  Did you bet on McGreggor?  Lol.  Again, a short fight would have benefited no one.  This was the best possible scenario for all involved.  Floyd gets his 50-0 record via knockout to boot, and another $100M to retire with.  McGreggor gets enough respect to possibly get another big money boxing match (Pacquiao?).  I'm not one to claim conspiracy but I bet they'll both have brunch together tomorrow laughing about all the money they robbed from the public.  The hype of them hating each other plus playing on the racial hatred of today was pre-fight emotional drama to get people to open their wallets.  I think it worked.

I saw the fight, for free.  It was surprisingly entertaining. 

 

McGregor  put on a good show, that's for sure.  But if you listen to the interview with Mayweather after the fight, all went as planned. In the first 3 rounds Mayweather didn't do much other than study him and let Conor tire himself out.  Mayweather then turned up the gas, burrowed in and was relentless.   Mayweather was landing  power punch after power punch, Conor was gassed and finished by the end.  Some of the so called boxing experts said Mayweather would do this. He's no fool. 

 

Good fight though. Both men put on a show.

With an MMA fight neither one would make half as much is the boxing match. The money was the motivating factor. Let Connor fight Canelo and he'll get embarrassed. He wasn't coming forward most of the fight like I thought the bigger guy would.

Uh oh. Did you bet on McGreggor? Lol. Again, a short fight would have benefited no one. This was the best possible scenario for all involved. Floyd gets his 50-0 record via knockout to boot, and another $100M to retire with. McGreggor gets enough respect to possibly get another big money boxing match (Pacquiao?).

Floyd is making about $300M and Connor about $100M.
