Oh yeah, and it'll close around, I'm thinking..mmmmm 300-400 to get a heap of more people betting money to cover in the event of an upset. Drunks, crazy people and red necks will take 3-1 on any damn thing.

McGregor won't be able to keep up. Mayweather is known for what he does and has the stamina to go round to round.

Guys, I think McGregor will win all the same. Of course, no one will say exactly, but it's still a show and something extraordinary must happen.

The footwork, angles etc are all completely different. McGregor has to battle all that and the best defensive fighter of this generation.

I personally don't think McGregor has any shot. Mayweather is going to keep his distance and win by decision.

They'll be fighting with 8oz gloves now instead of the standard 10oz.
I think McGregor is going to come out strong trying to connect big early. If he can't we're in for a snooze fest.

I'm not much of a follower of either boxing or MMA, but I do know I want to watch this fight. Of course it's all about the money, but it should be interesting as well.

I originally was going in unbiased and not caring who wins, but after watching the most recent press conference and seeing how McGregor spoke/acted, I'm not surprised people want to pay Mayweather so much to shut him up

Anyway, what is your thoughts and/or preferences on this bout?
The same thing! Haha! Hopefully, Money will shut his mouth up.

Floyd just has to make it past the second round, then the punchers chance will be over. Never play another mans game. Floyds game is boxing, Conners is not. If men who trained their entire life and become world champions can't beat Mayweather, Conner has less than a prayer.

I agree with most here. Connor should have no fear of being knocked out, so he SHOULD be all offense. I'll be watching it on a ppv that my step brother in law purchases so I'm not out any money, however this is the first mayweather fight I'm interested in watching, only because Connor is such a character. Without mentioning anything about his skill (which he is an extraordinary technical boxer), Mayweather is a 3rd grader who can't put together a simple sentence, who resorts to 2 word chants (read Hard Work! Hard Work! etc.) for smack talk.

Connor easily destroys him in the press conferences, and it's hilarious.

I'm ready for this Saturday.

Thank goodness it's NOT a spelling bee.

I`m kind of hoping that McGregor forgets that this is a boxing match with boxing rules and gives Mayweather a roundhouse kick to the head!

Unfortunately that would be extremely stupid of him to do so. A stipulation was added to the contract that if McGregor strikes Mayweather with kicks or other MMA moves, he gets a HUGE penalty on his portion of the purse.

Quote:
Under Nevada Athletic Commission rule 467.147, up to McGregor’s entire share of the purse could be immediately withheld until a final penalty, which could include the entire amount, is determined.

Ya I`m aware of that and it would be stupid but it still doesn`t stop me from hoping he does it just the same.
