Rogan said in that interview it is very possible McGregor vs Mayweather goes 12 rounds and backs it up by saying Mayweather does not have murderous power. Its not selective reading, it is what he said.
You can have the opinion that Mayweather would destroy McGregor, knock him out, or whatever you want. I don't really give a shit. You can make all the attacks on my knowledge you want. It just furthers my point that you can't except others opinion unless you agree with it. I am not sure why you think people will just change their opinion because some internet wannabe know-it-all thinks otherwise. I have my opinion, you have your opinion. I am not changing mine because you act like a whiney bitch and tell me you know more than me.
I agree with Nuke - although I really wouldn't give Connor anything more than a punchers chance (a really low one at that), I also really don't see Floyd "destroying" him in the sense of a KO/TKO, but rather doing so on points. He'd most likely win every round via hit, stick and move and it would be boring as hell. The ONLY winners in this scenario would be Connor, Floyd and the promoters as they'd cash in pretty big. The rest of us would be better off watching a ballet on broadway.....
I'd like to see Connor fight an amateur boxer first or an average/below average pro boxer, someone like Chris Algieri. My money would be on Algieri.
Again, boxing and MMA are two COMPLETELY different sports. Just because you can throw a punch in your own sport doesn't mean you're a good boxer.
McGregor is completely delusional. Mayweather would eat him alive. I stand by with what I said, I don't think McGregor would last a round against Floyd. And yes, I know Floyd is not a KO artist.
wont waste a dime to watch it.
I agree with Andrew on this. It's pretty laughable.
CM could end FM in one punch.
Problem is he'll never land one.
There are very few people in the history of sports to transfer from one professional league to another and have any level of success. I can't imagine Boxing being any different.
Tears streaming down my cheeks, just take me to Lansdowne Street...
To be fair, essentially the only disagreement has been in regards to the manner in which MacGregor would lose - early KO vs death by a thousand mosquito bites. I also have a feeling that even if Floyd was able to KO Connor early, I'm not convinced that he would as I think that he'd rather toy with him and make him look as foolish as possible while exerting as little effort as possible.
An uninformed opinion perhaps...but I don't know if McGregor can even last a full 12...don't think he has the stamina to go that long...he has never had to in UFC whose matches are much shorter. Forget how tiring it's going to be for him to repeatedly miss his punches (basically shadow boxing)
Its not like McGregor has never boxed before. He trained as a boxer at a young age, and was a pretty good youth boxer (from internet accounts).
The reason that McGregor would have a chance to go into later rounds is because of the opponents style. that's it. it would be dangerous for Floyd to change his style against someone who can punch like McGregor.
The analogy is more like a PGA pro (FM) going against a long drive champion (CM). The PGA pro is likely going to win a match play event over 18, but if he tries to match him drive for drive there will probably be a few penalty strokes that could cost him.
