    MAYWEATHER VS MCGREGOR: After fight analysis. It was a better fight than first expected. McGregor handled himself well and only broke the rules moderately and occasionally. Connor boxed an aged and ill conditioned Mayweather. Not saying Mayweather was not in shape. Floyd is a gym rat even in retirement. Floyd was however coming off a two year retirement from competing in the ring. Floyd is 40 and Connor is 29. That is a huge age difference. The real surprise was that Floyd did not do his usual stick and move. He stood his ground, took punches to land punches. He even pursued Connor at times. He wore Connor down and then stopped him. Totally out of character for Floyd. He made this fight harder for himself then he needed to. Was it because as he said, "I wanted to give the fans what they wanted to see and to make up for the Pacquiao fight." Or was it because at his present age and conditioning, that was all he could do? I watched the entire fight on youtube. It was uploaded within minutes of the fights end. It was a fun fight to watch but the end was inevitable after the 4th round.

    McGregor would make quick work of Marciano.

    I think people and specially MMA fans are reachimg at straws. Yes Floyd lost rounds but from the start of the fight just seeing the size difference had me in awe. McGregor looked at least 15 pounds bigger yet he couldnt hurt Mayweather and got Knocked out. This is a prime MMa champion vs a retired boxer. If it had been a legit boxing match he wouldve fought Golovkin or Canelo who are more his size and in the best years of their careers. How do you think that would have gone? Arm punches would not ha e scared either of them and im pretty sure two good jabs fr either would have Mcgregor scared and ready to go im 2-3 rounds tops. But for those MMA fans saying boxers cant do anything in an octogon just look at what Ray Mercer did

    Holm is a mma fighter not a boxer, by the time she fought ronda she was a bjj purple belt, trained full time mma, and had a decorated kickboxing background.
    Completely different than a 0-0 going against mayweather in a different sport

    It was both the two year absence BUT a different kind of fighter anthat Mayweathjer really would have had to fight like that bc he lost all first 4 rnds and 5 by me. In the end McGregor proved a formidable opponet and MUCH bigger which was a HUGE factor here . Had McGregor had at least one fioght under him in pro boxing ,well? he might win this one IF Floyd fights the same way,however McGregor for a 0 and 0 guy showed a rematch mioght not be in Floyds best interest.Personally i will bet McGregor,and advised all to take the over 7 in this one.

    McGregor can develope better snap strikes in his style ...but thats up to him .If hes an actual martial artist you take in what CREDIBLE ppl tell you....he SHOULD have won this fight and he was missing something/someone in his camp......................................................................................................................." he SELF admitted that" but theres to many know it alls given advice to him so...........................................

    What did ray mercer do? His mma record is terrible with submission loss to kimbo slice.
    He beat a shot time slyvia.

    All this talk about mayweather being 40, randy couture was almost 50 when he stopped james toney in the first round.
    Look at butterbean as well he got wrecked in the cage, they are different sports, a top boxer wouldn't be a favorite over any mma fighter in the cage and vice versa.

    Casuals paid $100 for an electrifying fight between 2 larger than life personalities and they delivered. 4-5 million PPV buys. The aftertaste from casual fans is 100x better tonight than after May-Pac. More people will be talking about Canelo-GGG in 3 weeks.

    Good god are you assholes blind mayweather stood right in front of him and threw almost nothing and came out completely unscathed and with a tko win where the ref literally saved McGregors life. Mayweather gave away rounds because he literally had zero respect for mcgregors power and knew there was no way he would be functional after 6 or 7 rounds. If you can't see this then you have no clue what you are looking at
