Mayweather vs McGregor is Somewhat Analogous to Most "Style Clash" Rap Battles, BUT..
 


...the novelty in rap battles wore off a long time ago. Floyd vs Conor is exciting because it's new and has never been done before. Imagine if it happened several times a day every few weeks. It would get old super fast.

I would say this is more like that weird GZ Proud 2B Eh Battle MC event. Where guys that usually write and occasionally freestyle battle freestyle specialists.

Toronto 07-12-2017 09:59 AM

McGregor >>>

Profess 07-12-2017 10:22 AM

@6000GP how would you rate TheSaurus vs Clips as a style clash?

Abstrakt 07-12-2017 11:51 AM

Mayweather is gonna make dude look stupid

These guys' ability to sell a fight is the story here... hype hype hype... the actual fight itself? A joke.

Sure, mcgregor will come close to hitting mayweather and the crowd will go crazy but honestly, may is gonna play with dude

Battlehogg 07-12-2017 12:36 PM

Mayweather and McGregor are both douche bags. My money in on Money Mayweather but I have a feeling this might be a lot closer than people are anticipating. Jeff Horn just took a W over Pacman ffs.

ledge 07-12-2017 04:41 PM

if you are putting money on this fight and it's not on McGregor then you are a dunce

Yeah. Unless you're putting millions on it, a Floyd bet isn't going to have much return.

But then again we know McGregor will lose so even throwing a couple hundred down is just tossing money away. Might as well buy scratchers or play the slots for a better chance to make money.

Spacelab 07-12-2017 09:46 PM

Only way Mcgregor wins this is by knockout. Otherwise Mayweather's conservative point-getting will win.

So this means McGregor is going to go all-out for the knockout .

A lot of boxers fighting Mayweather have not. They know it's about points and engage Mayweather on that level, conscious how how many times they're being hit, etc.

But McGregor is going to stand in the rain, as it were, saying "punch me all you want, I am punching back" and knock him ouuuut

going to come in angrier than Philly Swain

I am LIL ILL 07-12-2017 10:07 PM

I remember Floyd vs Pacman being shitty cause Pacman went in to fight with a fucked up arm. No more excuses this time. I want to see blood.

r3flex 07-12-2017 10:18 PM

Without Malignaggi these press conferences would be garbage before the fighters take stage.

This is easy mode for Floyd. It wont even be close tbh.

Yes there is a chance for a magical knockout by Connor but that will not happen. Floyd is a professional. He knows how to win. Connor is a scrub in a different sport.

Spacelab 07-12-2017 11:11 PM

Mayweather as old as Head Ice though

r3flex 07-12-2017 11:51 PM

Conor murdered that press conference. Let's be completely honest, Floyd wins this. It's cool to hope for Conor and cheer for the upset but we all know the reality of this. However, these press conferences are going to be really good, like today.

peace 07-13-2017 12:07 AM

MMA is one of the few sports wherein legacies practically have no existence. if mcgregor makes this a fight worth watching, that might change.

the fight's exciting even though it's bullshit. i'll watch.

Wolfpac187 07-13-2017 02:15 AM

All Day 07-13-2017 03:02 AM

McGregor is doing a good job of making me believe HE THINKS he can win

im not saying he is gonna win, but UFC is my second favorite sport and im a big fan of Connor so im rooting for him. Not the best fighter ever by any means but he still can fight.

his best chance is knocking out Floyd in the first 5 rounds if not he gonna get too tired to do anything and Floyd is gonna win by decision, thats how i have the fight going. not going to live up to the hype and Floyd is just gonna clinch and run around for most of the fight.

if this was the octagon it would be a whole diff story...

I think mayweather would sue the judges if they tried to pull the bullshit that happened to pacquiao :funny:

Ya, I see it the same way

Two other exciting possibilities:

1) Notorious CMG getting tired after missing too many haymakers and Money May KO-ing him somewhere in rounds 8-10

2) CMG completely losing it and roundhouse kicking Mayweather in the head lol


But it'll most likely be a letdown

I love Conor but he's getting knocked the f-out, in his verbiage he's fooked.

On the mic Conor wins by a mile - Floyd is X-factor corny son, Conor make breakfast bowls out of 2 litre bottles and shit

but outside of his hands has taken little to no damage throughout his entire career. so people comparing him to pacman and horn are fucking retarded.

connor will be gassed the fuck out less than halfway through the fight, money may tko in 7th or 8th after connor gasses from hitting air and getting hit by may where he doesn't see it comin.

also, to everyone talking about how connor is ''owning'' him in the trashtalk? money may cares about one fucking thing in all of this $$$$$$$$$$$ and with this he doesn't even have to promote it, the guy getting paid less than half of what he'll clear is doing all the work for him.

if anything floyd is relieved that finally he has someone that can carry all the promotion shit for him.

Emancee 07-13-2017 01:00 PM

No way that Mayweather doesn't win this easily. The only problem is that Mayweather has more to lose than Connor, so I suspect he will play it safe and get the win through using spacing and landing point scoring punches. As a result, it will be a total disappointment to everyone except that friend that everyone has that is into the really technical aspects of fighting.

I liked the madflex/geechi gotti battle

The return on a KO within 4 rounds, which would be the only time McGregor would, if at all possible, KO Floyd, before he starts getting winded and pummeled is at 40/1.

I might toss $100 on that, which would return $4K....worth a crack

Yeah I think a $1000 bet on Floyd has you walking home with $1100.


There is always a sliver of chance so I might toss a couple hundred on some bets for it.

MrFujiwara 07-13-2017 07:20 PM

Mayweather will out class him, but Dana isn't going to throw his Ace to the wolves that easily.

Judging off of the nature of these press conferences; Conor will get in trouble and throw a kick to get disqualified and people will hit the ring for a pull apart.

Nah I dig that nh. I see it like Connor wont know how to box. Flat out. Floyd will dance around most likely sticking his arms up in the air getting the crowd involved while Connor mopes around all tired and out of breath.

Connor will be throwing hay makers first 3 rounds maby connecting 2 or 3 times.

Its such a strange fight no mater who you think will win.

iamHBY 07-14-2017 04:13 AM

There's only two ways this could turn out: Either as the Fingerpoke of Doom II where the fight's completely thrown, or the more realistic outcome where Floyd Mayweather avoids a lot of McGregor's punches, and wins via calculated defense.

its entirely possible Connor lands literally 0 punches.

I'm sure there are boxers on the planet McGregor could hold his own against....probably some pros he could even beat....but jumping in with the best defensive boxer in the history of earth? Gonna take a real lucky shot or something....and I'm not a Floyd fan at all but he is who he is

If Conor had a few decent boxing matches under his belt for experience, it'd be a different story, but this is skipping to boss mode on expert with a controller you've never even seen before. He's going to get CM Punk'd.

Abstrakt 07-14-2017 11:26 AM

After about 5 rounds, mcgregor will be gassed the fuck out after trying to knock may's head off

that'd be the smart thing for Conor after a couple of rounds or do something crazy in a clinch

haatley 07-14-2017 12:14 PM

This press tour is cornier than WWE. Pathetic.

Business-wise it's extremely smart to take advantage of Conor's charisma and shittalking ability especially considering the actual fight likely will be a disappointment.

magik 07-14-2017 05:31 PM

cloners ''rapping'' in new york (that bombed) will be the fodder for photoshops for years to come.
