    Fight starts at about 6:50 in.. You can get a good look at the power of that left that Conner has.
    If Floyd decides to fight him and not run around like a little girl then we can finally get a look at what Mayweather can take. At 40 years old though he should probably stick to the running around and trying to avoid getting hit.

    Rematch would be worth 350 for both of them.. They are estimating that PPV numbers will be around 50 mil.. Thats 5 bil just in PPV money for showtime. You can bet they would love to see this run twice. :).

    This is also huge money for a UFC fighter. UFC you take a beating and get paid shit. If Conner can make a good showing here he can leave the UFC behind and make some serious cash. I'd get in the ring with either of them for 25 mil. Wouldn't be much of a fight though. :fighting:

    Thank you for that link mispillion. I really respected Archie a lot, a good man also quite unlike the others in the boxing game in that era. I was rooting hard for him against Sugar Ray, but like what was said in the article, Sugar Ray was too fast, and Archie a bit too old. Again thanks.

    I don't think mcgregor would be in this position if he weren't a douche bag. This event is a reflection of our society.

    It works great for him financially, but man, being a douchebag isn't what MMA is about, its the opposite.

    This must drive Dana White insane. He has no control over this crap. Not sure if he has a piece of McGregor or not. Dana bought the UFC for a million or two, and it's worth a thousand times that now. More fighters are going to try this, after seeing how much money Floyd makes. This thing has the possibility of changing all kinds of sports. I guess we are headed to a place similar to Rome. Gladiator fights. Bring on the Lions, and the chariots with razors on the wheels.

    There's an interesting article online, about Mayweather, and HBO. Alot of this is Floyd putting the screws to HBO, for ripping him off early in his career. This fight has overshadowed a coupl of HBO's marquis matchups, in a few weeks. He cut this deal with Showtime to rub salt in the wound.

    post 41, 8 minutes in and you can see what that left of Conners can do. Alvarez was world champion and didn't stand a chance against that left. That thing is lightning fast. Conner also prefers to punch in the UFC. He has good counters against the wrestling but he prefers to hit hard with that left. Probably because of his reach advantage too so I dont see boxing as being a tough transition for him. That cartoon is a pretty accurate description of how this could go down. I'm pretty sure Floyd doesn't want to exchange blows with Conner. Conner has to go after him the way Pacquiao did and if he does then this is over in less than 6 rounds. If he doesn't than he's just going to be chasing him around the ring all night. My money is going on Conner tonight.

    Floyd is smart, first and foremost. All about defense. I actually found someone willing to bet on Conor, so I will be watching live. The looser is the pay per view crowd, if you don't have money on it.

    Floyd protects his head with his gloves and his body with his quick elbows and his booty with Jewish Bankers.

    Can't touch this.....

    HAMMER TIME.

    Keef's pic: Yeah, Conor will look promising first few rounds? Just to make Floyd looks even BETTER when he drops de hammer. Both fighters laugh all the way to the ATM.​

    In the last couple years he hasnt had any fights except with his wife. If he wins this fight then she can divorce him and take a lot of that.

    Those not giving Conner a chance aren't considering his power

    Maywether asked for 8 oz gloves to be macho.

    Ok he's faster but Conner only has to hit him once. Conner has the power - we'll see

    I'd like see Conner fake some takedowns elbows and leg kicks just to out the thought in Fkoyds head.

    I stand corrected. They state that Dana was a business partner of Lorenzo and Frank, and owned 9% of the UFC. He has been president of the organization for quite awhile, and I would imagine the Architect of the company's sucess. 9% of a 4 billion dollar sale price is not bad at all. New owners kept him on as President, which was a smart move. Big egos can ruin any business in short order.

    If this doesnt go conners way I hope he kicks Floyd in the head and knocks him out. LOL. Although I think someone posted that if he does that he loses 90% of his payday..
    So other than 8 oz gloves are there any other modifications to this fight to accomodate Conner?

    Dana was a jazzerboxing/dance workout "gym" owner and the Paul Bearer of mma (tito/chuck manager, they made crumbs back then). No way he could afford to buy the UFC. He heard it was up for sale and presented the opportunity to the Fertittas. Right place, right time, right friends.

    [​IMG]

    That piece of shit has made more money off the UFC than every fighter in it's history combined. ....

    and people wonder why they're still attracting peasant level athletes to the "sport"

    Ill give Dana some credit for the innovations. He recognized they'd never go big without state athletic sanction and that meant adding a few reasonable rules

    Then his deal with Spike Tv brought them into the big leagues

    You grow it and it's you who grows wealthy

    If it goes the distance Floyd earns about 10 mil a minute. Not to shabby.

    Round 8. The can looked gassed after 3. Throwing hammer fists. Lol. So much for not going backwards, Caner. Floyd walking him down the whole time just like he said he would.

    Mayweather on the juice. :fighting::couple: Hard to imagine a 40 yr old with more stamina than a 29 yr old.. If that was all natural then my hats off to him. I didnt see the fight though so hard to say for sure.

    I'm not even sure if Floyd trained. In those all access vids, mayweather was doing nothing but jet setting, hanging in strip clubs, roller skating etc, while caner was grinding his ass off in every clip.

    Only problem with that theory is Conner won the first three rounds and started to slow after the 4th round and yet Floyd could only get the win in the 10th round. ... I would have also given the eighth round to McGregor!

    It was not as lopsided as you claim!

    Yea I guess Conner was looking kinda tired by rnd 5. Threw a lot of wasted punches early on.. Floyd did look good for 40.

    Floyd had to walk away from one fight because of the juicing rules. MMA is very strict on the juicing.
