    All the signs are there. Kavanagh (McConor's coach) was on Joe Rogans show after the Khabib fight talking the potential fight up and he also mentioned that they will be releasing a Netflix documentary showing more of the sparring footage.

    Paulie's commentating on the Matchroom/DAZN show last night and then all of a sudden McConor turns up midway "to watch Katie Taylor". I can buy that but to me he was killing two birds with one stone last night. He's had many chances to attend a Taylor fight previously. I believe he went there to speak with Paulie and possibly Hearn about this fight and it's going to happen.

    It's going to generate a **** ton of money for both fighters and McConor probably sees it as a winnable fight. If he was to win, then boom the Mayweather rematch is there for the casuals to buy into.

    Tbh, I actually want to see it. The trash talk is great and I want to see it. 100% this fight will take place and it will do big numbers. I reckon it will be on DAZN.

    I don't see it. Conor will probably fight Nate Diaz at 155 lbs next in MMA. I don't think he will box again.

    It's possible, but it's more like a last ditch effort for McGregor. McGregor can make more money in MMA than he can against Malignaggi. If there comes a time that isn't the case, McGregor may be willing to cash out againt Paulie.

    Malignaggi is powder puff. Even if he completely outlands McGregor I can’t see him hurting him. It’s low risk in that sense.

    Personally I think Paulie got beaten up in those sessions. Otherwise he'd be over it by now.

    Sparring footage is going live on Netflix soon.

    Surely Paulie has enough to outpoint McGregor over 12. Conor is a major gas tank imagine the embarrassment if Paulie took him out late.

    No it won’t. They promising it for long time ago. Against Mayweather we saw that he can’t box at all.

    Different sport.

    They are releasing the footage in a documentary on Netflix about the McGregor fight.

    Did you read the bit where I said Paulie outpoints him?

    They are going to release a cut version with Conor McQuitter’s best moments.

    Yes I red it and I agree but everyone knows it who knows boxing and MMA.

    It'll be heavilly edited and manipulated. It won't just be a load of footage left to run.

    If Paulie took Conor out late, he would never allow Conor to hear the end of it. :lol:

    He doesn't need to outland or even hurt McGregor though; all Paulie needs to do is carry Conor past the 4th round and then gradually turn up the pressure and put it on a gassed Conor.
