Saturation.  In the u.s., there are boxing matches on tv probably 4-5 times a week. ufc is on way less and on crappy ass channels no one knows about.  so, the fans are so hungry for fights, they

i rather save my money and watch choco gonzalez vs sor whateverhisnameis and cuadras vs gallo estrada on the undercard the week after.

free on hbo or at any pub or pizza joint across the country.

 

of course, all four of them suck because they weigh less than 147.

well the speculations are over, I guess they are going to be fighting. 50 and 0 it is then.

 

Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. and MMA superstar Conor McGregor announced they would be fighting on Aug. 26 in what promises to be one of the most intriguing matchups in fight history.

Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports first reported the fight had been agreed to by both Mayweather and McGregor. Mayweather then confirmed on Instagram.

Dana White said on Instagram that the fight will be at 154 pounds and take place at T-Mobile Arena, per MMAFighting.com.

Mayweather, 40, retired from boxing in Sept. 2015 after defeating Andre Berto and moving to 49-0 in his professional fighting career. But he continued to hint at a possible return to the ring and told FightHype.com in May 2016 that he was considering a bout against an MMA fighter.

That fighter ultimately ended up being McGregor, 28, the UFC lightweight champion. McGregor is 21-3 in his professional fighting career (9-1 in the UFC) and has ascended to superstardom in the sport.

The two fighters engaged in a long, often-public negotiation over the ensuing months. McGregor's contract with the UFC and Mayweather's lofty expectations for his payout made putting together this superfight particularly complicated.  

Now, however, McGregor will face Mayweather in what could be the most lucrative fight for both superstars in their respective careers.

man, i really wish that connor would wipe the fucking floor with floyd because i can't stand his ass.

 

unfortunately, if that happens, we'll never hear the end of it by mmgay fans so floyd has to win.

Conor doesn't stand a chance, but Floyd stands even less of a chance in an MMA cage. What has Conor got to lose? He loses, gets a fat ass pay cheque yet walks away knowing in a real fight he beats this man down with ease. He is brilliant...

You think this goes 12?

the probability that mcgregor gasses and falls out face first is mostly likely so doubt it , but floyd wearing pillows on his pillows will be its best to help mcgregor

One of the dumbest posts I have ever seen.

 

Do you recall MMA making boxing and James Toney look ridiculous? The fact remains a high school wrestling squad beats 99 percent of the top 10 boxers in the world in their weight class. If we are talking a fight (which boxing is not) there is no discussion here. Floyd Mayweather had to design a very very specific contract for McGregor to make sure he doesn't get paid if he tries anything that doesn't suit his gameplan. MMA walked up to boxing, took a chunk of money and has nothing to lose. Its like one guy telling another, the only way you can fight me is if you blind fold me, tie one hand behind your back so we can even the fight. McGregor will walk away smiling, rich and still knowing he can beat his ass. lol

your cute post has nothing to do with what i said, though.  your mma pals said boxing was dead.  it obviously isn't if your number one superstar has to go and bend over and get anally raped by floyd and all his stipulations and just take it.

had floyd gone over to mma and got on his knees and blown dana white the way connor did floyd, then i'd have to hear what you have to say.

not everyone is meant to be a ppv star.

as a matter of fact, the less there are,the better.

i couldn't give a rats ass if freckles sold 2 ppvs.  how does that help me?

i rather see crawford vs anyone on hbo.   

i know spike tv isn't ppv so why are most ufc cards on that channel?  you rather pay to see them?
