    Conor McGregor would get pinned in UFC and knocked out in a boxing ring by Terence Crawford, according to promoter Bob Arum.

    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p lang="en" dir="ltr"> Bob Arum: &quot;Crawford will do McGregor in the Octagon and three months later in the ring. Octagon would be first, I don&#39;t want them to think we&#39;re playing around… I wouldn&#39;t be surprised if Crawford pins McGregor in an MMA fight. Crawford&#39;s a better wrestler than McGregor.&quot;</p>&mdash; Michael Benson (@MichaelBensonn) <a href="">January 26, 2020</a></blockquote> <script async src="

    Does Crawford have any grappling experience?

    I doubt it, McGregor makes him look silly in the cage, Crawford makes him look silly in the ring. Two elite athletes, two very different sports.

    Just some desperate PR from Bob to generate hype for Crawford who isn't making him the kind of money that he'd like.

    Yeah. Crawford has a wrestling background. Not surprising being from Nebraska and all.

    Bob would still find a way to cling to life, recover and come back to screw up this sport even if McGregor cold ****ed him as hard as he could.

    Still, I have regional level Judo experience. I'd get trashed trying to grapple an average MMA fighter.

    The two sports require very different skillsets. There's a reason Floyd would never set foot in the octagon. You can't box on your back.

    The professional boxer wins the boxing match. The professional MMA fighter wins the MMA match.

    Some say Arum stays young by sucking the life out of talented boxer's careers.

    This sickens me. Two different sports and I do not care about MMA. Crawford needs to box, forget about this MMA nonsense. Connor or any reasonably competent MMA fighter at the weight destroys Crawford in the cage under MMA rules. Crawford sparks any MMA fighter who wants to try the sweet science. It’s that simple.

    I don’t want to see a top talent in boxing deal with these distractions. Retired guys or those on the way down can deal with it. Crawford is elite and should only be concerned with top boxers in eye boxing ring. If Conor wants a beating in the ring, that’s fine I guess. It taints Crawford’s legacy in my eyes but I get it, the money might be too big to pass up. These sideshow events are a waste of time. I hate them but the casual fans eat them up.

    How long before Tank fights an MMA guy? Probably more likely than him fighting a top five LW.

    Didn't you accuse Arum of being in on corruption of Pacquios loss to Horn with your reason being his biggest cash cow Pacquio on downward spiral on his way out LOL?
    With you somehow believing Arum wanted the belt on Crawford for that reason as his next big star despite him never being close to a draw or being able to create anywhere what Pacquio could per fight,even with Crawford being 1 of the top3 p4p fighters in the world.

    I hate these silly boxing v mma threads and discussions now that top fighters from each sport,especially since the big money conor v floyd fight, keep talk about fighting other top fighters in the other sport.
    it's pretty simple really because without proper training the fact is,outside of a fluke shot a MMA fighter beats Boxer in mma fight and boxer beats mma fighter in boxing match every time.

    Yes and no. I said during my handling of you last night that Arum may or may have not been involved with the shenanigans that took place that night but he definitely didn't take much issue with it as.he used the opportunity to put an easy belt on the star he was trying to build.

    Arum clearly isn't satisfied with where Crawford's at popularity wise. He wants him to be a bigger draw obviously.
