    Since he moved to welter his power has had less effect and he has knocked out less people at that higher weight, he`s getting on now and started as a feather.

    Sounded like Dana White wants to put together a fight with Magomededov. Big money I guess.

    Could it possibly be, I mean I know it's not likely, but is it just a teeny bit possible he's off the juice now compared to his heyday when he avoided all testing?

    Since being called our on it he has not looked ir fought the same.

    Coincidence?

    Horn isn't hard to hurt. He's hard to stop. I think McGregor could buzz him but it's less likely he stops him. Although he's one of the highest profile active fighters at 154-160 that I'd give McGregor a decent shot at beating. Horn is a domestic level fighter not a world level operator. McGregor may not be a well schooled boxer but he's a talented guy. Far less talented combat sports athletes have made the jump and had some degree of success.

    McEgger did not look that powerful against Mayweathet. I was surprised. His striking, which looks awesome in MMA did not seem to translate in boxing power.

    I'd give him a chance to beat Horn though as that fight would be more of a mauling, brawling affair than a boxing match.

    A question mark though with McEgger is his boxing gas tank. Horn can definitely maul for 10-12 rounds. Can McEgger?

    You're right. But it was always his first match and one fighting a completely different style. The closest comparison I could see in boxing to how he fought is Troyanovsky. I think cardio might be an issue later on but it could also be for Horn who won't be used to dealing with someone who will foul and wrestle back.

    Conor is trash at boxing. He's not beating anyone the top 20.

    He would get carved up by world champions from 147-168, same fate with almost all of the contenders due to their superior form and gas tank.

    That`s a solid point.

    I see amateurs every week that would hammer the life out of McGregor at my local gym Mark

    Bob Arum: "Crawford will do McGregor in the Octagon and three months later in the ring. Octagon would be first, I don't want them to think we're playing around… I wouldn't be surprised if Crawford pins McGregor in an MMA fight. Crawford's a better wrestler than McGregor."
