How the contract is worded is going to be extremely important to how this fight goes. If there is no provision in there and you dont think McGregor might just say fuck it and go MMA on him after a few rounds then you are crazy. I have wondered to myself for a while now how hard it will be for someone trained in MMA to avoid instincts to throw a kick or take someone down in a pure boxing match. Even if not intentional dont be surprised if some illegal moves come out of McGregor.

how did i change the discussion? i never said mayweather would knock out mcgregor. i do think he has a good chance of knocking out mcgregor, simply because he isn't a trained boxer. you act like mayweather has never knocked anyone out before.

hell, i don't even think mcgregor will be able to land any clean punches. this is going to be a joke.

Correct but he is gonna lose anyways and since most people are only going to watch in hopes that he someone punches Mayweathers face in why not give the people what they want? haha

^^^it would not surprise me if Mayweather's camp puts it in the contract that any MMA fighting would result in McGregor forfeiting his payout to Mayweather.

So who would win if it was a "fight whichever way" fight?

In such a fight, Mayweather wouldn't hold back and would actively try to go for a KO while staying vigilant to Conor's attempts at kicking, grappling, etc.

Uh, of course, that's been discussed to death.

I am talking about a fight in which they can do whatever they want from any discipline/style.

I would win, by smoking near them, thus killing them with secondhand smoke.

(at my great question)

but but but... what if mayweather has had serious training in kickboxing?!!!

ok, he hasn't, but it would be great to pit a top kickboxer with a top mma or a top kungfu or taekwondo master. or a street fighter with a martial artist.

wasn't there some series like that on some channel?

no i mean a documentary-style series on either nat geo or discovery.

i remember seeing an episode on one of those channels where they were comparing fighters of two different styles.

never seen that one, sounds interesting!

ok so i dug around on youtube and remembered it is called Fight Science on discovery.

they don't really have people fight each other, but they have fighters from many disciplines perform their best hits on dummies made of ballistic rubber which mimics human flesh packed full of sensors and record the force, pressure, acceleration, and other data from the hits.

i recall now watching several episodes of it, great show! the kickboxer and taekwondo master always came out on top with kick strength, and the boxer with hand hit strength. they also evaluated the fighting styles of top mma practitioners and muay thai fighters, as well as jiujitsu. then they did a bunch of episodes on martial arts weapons, which was really interesting.

My point is... the Gracie's created the UFC to prove that BJj was the greatest fighting style. The first UFC's had King Fu artists and Mit Thai kickboxers etc as well as wrestlers and street brawlers. You don't need a nat geo special. There is literally a competition that does exactly what you asked

This may be a dumb question, but are you allowed to do any different types of punches(like a spinning back fist or a flying punch) in boxing?

Outside of seeing McGregor end it quick in the first, that wouldn't be interesting either.

y'all remember that beef 50cent and Mayweather had a few years back? Where 50 offered to donate $750K to a charity of Mayweather's choice if he could read a single page out of a Harry Potter book without stumbling?

What ever happened with that?

My guess it'll be a boring fight with Mayweather dancing around the entire time since McGregor won't be able to land a legal punch/hit.

The promo stuff is so cheesy though. Neither one of them gives a shit since they're both laughing all the way to the bank.

He'll land punches. That's just absurd to think he won't. What's going to happen is that McGregor will gas by round 4 or 5 because he's never fought this many rounds. Then it will just get ugly unless McGregor lands a lucky hit prior to that.

Mayweather is the best Hype man in the business, but his fights are all the same. He is a skilled boxer, but he doesn't really have knockout power anymore. He will use his speed and jab and win a decision unless McGregor gets DQed. I think McGregor will land some shots but Mayweather has made sure this fight is in his advantage. TMT controlled everything ring size, glove weight, wouldn't be surprised if he handpicked the ref and judges.

I may have to find a bar showing the fight or find a Filipino illegal feed.

""Floyd's stuff, I don't know," Alvarez said. "I don't think there's a lot of intelligence behind it."

Alvarez, who lost to McGregor via second-round TKO, said he plans to attend the fight on Aug. 26 in Las Vegas and believes McGregor is capable of handing Mayweather his first pro loss.

"Within [the first] four rounds, if you don't think Conor can knock this guy out, you're an idiot or you just don't know fighting," Alvarez said. "It can very well happen. If he doesn't get it done by then, then it could look very one-sided. The technical boxing of Mayweather is enough to make it look really one-sided.

"But Conor, there is a very real chance that he can put him away.""
