    I thought I'd make a thread about this as the promotional world tour for the fight recently started. The fight will be held in Las Vegas later this year, it'll be a boxing match and not a MMA match.

    Anyone care about this, if so what do you think is going to happen? My money is on May-weather, while McGregor is a great MMA fighter he's going toe to toe with one of the best boxers we've seen in decades in a boxing match. I'd love to see McGregor win the bout, but I just don't see it happening.

    Edit: Why the hell is May-weather blocked?

    Edit 2: I tried posting a link but for some reason the forum refuses to repost it accurately, even after attempting to edit the censored name.

    I'm just gonna shorten his name to MW since it's blocked lol.

    This one I'm going to go with McGregor but it will not be an easy fight for him. Here are some factors that benefit both.

    MW Good
    -Has been in the ring for years
    -Disciplined
    -Smaller but fast
    MW Bad
    -He's older
    -Been retired and out of his normal training for a couple of years now

    McGregor good
    -In a lot better shape
    -Fast but hits hard
    McGregor Bad
    -Ruthless, but this is not his discipline. He's a mixed martial artist, not a boxer. So a lot of his strengths like leg work and holds he can't do.
    -This is part of his character himself, but he is very cocky. I'm afraid if he gets too cocky, MW is gonna take advantage of that.

    If MW is gonna do his thing this fight is gonna be full fledged 13 rounds of cardio for both of them.

    My money is on MW simply because its boxing rules. Yeah MW might be out of the system for a long time but its like riding a bicycle, you never really forget.

    MW is gonna make it a long, drawn-out, exhausting fight.

    EDIT: MW is censored? lol.

    This is what sells MW for me, I think a lot of people underestimate just how good of a boxer the guy is. He's not the most popular of people but as far as talent goes we've not seen his like since the likes of Muhammad Ali.

    Yeah, no idea what that's about.

    I don't know if there is once it's made mate, maybe one of the mods can fix it? I really didn't think about it at the time. Good catch!

    May-weathers faster, has better footwork, and the advantage of having him inside a boxing ring. One of the best defensive fighters ever seen. McGregor hasn't got the years of experience for the type of training a boxer undergoes. Like most people are saying, it's a completely different game to UFC.

    No disrespect to McGregor he's a great fighter, i'm just skeptical he'll be able to out class his opponent. Infact... it's almost a suicide match.

    I know MW is 40, but still cant see any way McG wins this.

    McG looks great when against people who can't box, and most MMA fighters can't.

    The press conference stuff has been awful and embarrassing though, I thought the WWF stuff with Sonnen was bad, but it's a new level with McGregor.

    This is pure marketing for Moneyweather and McGimme. This is a no brainer. The rules 100% favor MoneyWeather. The end.

    What does the election have to do with it? There is zero comparison. Last thing we need is Trumpism clown car politics infecting another thread.

    Airbud, I respect you as a fellow forum goer so I'm going to politely ask you to keep politics out of this thread. The same stands for everyone else.

    Floyd is master at wearing fighters down, He'll play the long game as always. He's a boxer, he's going to win. This is just a money grab for both of them.
