    Paulie Malignaggi would probably stop any UFC fighter at his weight class with 4oz gloves on. Also, a fighter as elusive as Floyd will be even harder to hit with the smaller gloves on, and will obviously cause more damage when he lands one of his own counters on you. Floyd would MAYBE be able to counter a takedown fairly well with his fists and footwork alone.

    Floyd would be easier to hit with the smaller gloves. A lot of his moves rely on his opponent's shots sliding off his gloves. Smaller gloves means much more room to find a way past the defence for a solid connection.

    That's fair enough i guess. I noticed how McGregor at one point in, the second round i believe it was, tried using the shoulder roll lol. McGregor highly admires Mayweather deep down I am sure, so unsure why so many Floyd fans get butthurt over Conor's comments to hype the fight.

    I don't understand why the hell fmj would want to fight McGregor....I mean, McGregor got beat up by an average, run of the mill fighter in diaz....maybe Floyd just wants to explore new territory, but seems kinda pointless to me. McGregor is a non-entity and a empty media creation without the talent or record to back up his hype.

    A non-entity. :rofl

    In the last 12 months, McGregor has headlined four different million-plus-selling PPVs against three different opponents.

    In the last 18 months, how many million-selling PPVs has boxing in its entirety had? I'll give you a clue. Zero.

    Potential matchups for McGregor that draw mainstream interest and casual fight fans are hyped for: Khabib, Woodley, Ferguson, Diaz 3.

    Potential matchups in boxing that draw mainstream interest and that casual fans are hyped for: Mayweather vs McGregor.


    Guy sells more PPVs this year than the entire sport of boxing (and not by a little bit either) and you call him a non-entity. :rofl

    And he doesn't have the record to back up his hype. :rofl Two-division champion mate. Actual champion, not a paper beltholder. Only two other guys have ever held more than one UFC belt in their careers, and they are both first-ballot HOF legends. But yeah..... all hype. :rofl

    15,000 people turned up to watch the non-entity's last weigh-in.

    Not the fight.

    The fucking weigh-in. :rofl

    What a non-entity indeed. :lol:

    wtf..this dude is special because he holds two titles? even you know how bogus that argument is...look i'm not even gonna argue this nonsense. i've seen connor mcgregor...seen him get destroyed by nick diaz then fight a blood and guts war with diaz in the rematch and diaz aint shit. the last dude he fought was supposed to be in a higher weight class, but dude was actually smaller and shorter...looked like he was two divisions smaller than mcgregor. mcgregor don't deserve a fight with floyd...i think floyd is just testing the marketability of the fight to see how many people would actually buy it....and maybe just finding ways to keep his name in the spotlight for his promotional ventures.

    yes

    It's bogus to a boxing fan, because boxing championship belts mean absolutely nothing. To an MMA fan, it is virtually unprecedented and is an achievement that by itself makes him AN MMA ATG. (Not THE MMA ATG)

    You want to argue about MMA and you don't know the difference between Nick and Nate Diaz? LOL.

    And yep, McGregor lost to Nate first time round. Nate is enormous next to McGregor, and Conor fought a dumb fight. Dumb as hell. He tried to KO1 a savvy veteran with one of the most legendary chins in the sport. In the rematch he prepared better, fought smarter, and won a classic fight where he looked like a midget in the cage next to his opponent.

    And yeah, Diaz isn't shit. He just has the most submission wins of anyone in UFC history, is all. Nobody in MMA respected Nate before he beat Conor. :lol:

    Alvarez is a fucking tank and a career 155 pounder. McGregor's natural weight class is 155. They are the same sized guy. McGregor is longer, Alvarez is stronger.

    Seeings as McGregor's last three fights have each sold about 3x as many PPVs as Floyd's retirement fight did, maybe it's Floyd who doesn't deserve equal billing with Conor. :yep

    I think Floyd is just speaking McGregor's name because he knows who is The Man in combat sports right now, and he wants to try to keep himself relevant by leeching some of McGregor's shine. :lol:

    aight dude, you're obviously a true believer in the mcgregor hype....all i'm saying is, there is absolutely nothing for floyd to gain. in fact, i would consider it to be beneath his dignity to even seriously entertain a mcgregor fight...obviously floyd feels the same way because he's not showing any real interest. mcgregor is insignificant....he's significant to you. but he's insignificant in the larger scheme of things.

    I've picked against him in 4 of his last 5 fights. :lol:

    1) The fight is not going to happen.

    2) If it DID happen, it would be HUGE in terms of sales and mainstream interest. WAAAAY bigger than anything else open to Floyd.

    3) McGregor is not insignificant. He is undeniably the #1 star in all of combat sports right now, and it's not close. When's the last time you saw 15,000 people turn up for a fucking weigh-in? And that's not a one-off - every time he competes, he draws crowds of 10,000+ to watch him step on a scale. More people show up to watch this guy weigh in, than showed up to the arena to watch boxing's Fight of the Year last weekend. But yeah..... he's insignificant, a non-entity. :lol:

    the butt is hurt defending an idol who doesn't know he exists

    mate, fucking x factor and celebrity jungle and candy crush are probably multi multi million selling, just means the majority of people are fucking idiots imo. the majority of people I know have been fooled into believing debt is wealth, still doesn't make them rich, just clowns with a load of debt. just because there are millions who agree with them doesn't make them right, it makes them weak minded

    I dont' have an opinion on this macregor guy as have not ever watched any UFC (yet) but to use fiat money and television buys to counter the posters point that this guy is an empty media creation was a big own goal. think about what you just did there... laughable really and even more so that you probably still don't see it

    Mcgregor brags about being the 4 billion dollar man, but his purses for the fights aren't even probably a million, his main income is from sponsers etc.. so basically he's bragging about getting ripped off by ufc

    We know it would be a boxing fight. That's a given.

    I think you have to look at the narrative they would use to sell this fight. The narrative wouldn't be "Can Floyd beat Connor?" We know Connor can be stunned and beaten and we know Floyd is a master technician. The narrative is going to be "Can Connor beat Floyd?" That itself tells you who is the more respected fighter and who is seen as the dominant entity.

    It won't happen now, sounds like Mayweather wanted an 80-20 split or more knowing him, Pac had to settle for what? 60/40? Or less even? McGregor isn't taking a 20% split to get his ass kicked even if it would treble his highest purse. Imagine the build up though, McGregor for the most part is really funny and straight talking, he would verbally tear Mayweather to shreds.

    This boxing vs MMA scrap really is boring.Enjoy both worlds people.

    As for this-if it's boxing Floyd wins if it's MMA Conor wins.

    Which would happen in most cases.

    He's not my idol mate. He's an exciting fighter who has provided several awesome, action-packed fights and iconic moments in a sport that I really enjoy following.

    Yeah, what kind of an idiot fight fan would enjoy supporting a guy who:

    * Fights anyone, any time

    * Always challenges himself and goes for the toughest available fight

    * Works the mic like prime Ric Flair

    * Gets in the cage and fights - always looking for the finish, and who has gone to decision twice in 24 career fights

    * Attracts a level of support and generates electricity in the crowd like few fighters I've ever seen

    * Has a fighting style like a fucking Street Fighter character

    * And whose weigh-ins have a bigger crowd and better atmosphere than most champion's fights do

    What kind of combat-sports fan would support that? :lol:

    The guy said that McGregor was "a non-entity" and "an empty media creation without the talent or record to back up his hype."

    Well, over 10,000 people show up to watch every time he weighs in. So there goes the "non-entity" thing, right out the window.

    As far as talent and record? He has an iconic KO1 victory over the greatest MMA FW champion ever, a man who was undefeated for 10 years before McGregor iced him in seconds in the biggest fight of either man's career. This alone is a legendary win in MMA history.

    And not only that, he absolutely decimated the LW champion as well, handing him by FAR the most one-sided defeat of his career. In fact, McGregor has handed out two of the most noncompetitive title-fight KOs in MMA history. There are three men on this planet who can claim to have been a UFC champion in more than one division, and McGregor is one of them. So much for the "he doesn't have the talent or achievements to justify his hype."

    I'll take your money if that happens. McGregor would kick the shit out of him and turn Mayweather's legs into raw hamburger inside a round, and there would be nothing Mayweather could do to stop him. Floyd would need to be carried back to his corner like Faber was against Aldo.

    That looks so painful, leg kicks must be even worse than they look.
