Arrow Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather (August 26th)

This is going to be lol but it's still going to be one of the biggest sporting events of all-time so it should have its own thread.

I expect and hope that this thread becomes as AIDS as the fight will be. Let's do it.


I'll be rooting for FLOYD to go 50-0 and cement his legacy as the GOAT for decades to come.

re: Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather (August 26th)

only -730/+526 right now

Would be one of the all time great upsets if McGregor wins.

-730 is nuts

yeah it might be rigged but hard to think rigged has 12% equity

otherwise CM has 0 chance

re: Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather (August 26th)

Floyd ain't rigging this.

He isn't going to give up the best perfect record in boxing to a person with no amateur boxing record fighting in his first pro boxing match.

re: Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather (August 26th)

yeah, I can't really think of why the line is so low but at that price you will see a lot of 6 figure bets on Floyd

re: Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather (August 26th)

The fight is in Las Vegas and has a ref and judges. You can never rule out riggage. I'd still need something like 50/1 to bet on Conor. Those odds are absurd

re: Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather (August 26th)

here are the real odds:

61% Conor does something illegal / gets the match stopped / this is how Floyd wins / ring ends up looking like Rucker Park
36% Floyd wins by decision
3% Conor wins by knockout

re: Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather (August 26th)

I heard that there is something in the contract that stipulates Conor forfeits his purse if he does anything illegal/MMA related. Not sure what the conditions are though.

Non zero chance CM just says **** it and starts going MMA on Money's ass at some point to get the fight stopped.

re: Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather (August 26th)

Well if he did anything like that there would possibly be criminal charges and the athletic commission would have his ass. But yeah probably get sued into oblivion too.

I do think he'll tease about doing that in the press conf to drive interest though "Maybe I'll just kick you in your fookin head Floyd"

re: Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather (August 26th)

Let's not forget that once Conor figured he couldn't win that first Diaz fight he essentially gave up, punched himself out, and got KTFO. Ricky Hatton essentially tried to fight Floyd this way and that was the result there as well. Anybody think Conor has a better shot than Hatton did at the time?

If Floyd wants to win by KO he will win by KO. I like Floyd to carry him for 4 or 5 rounds and then finish it whenever he wants to. It's not going to be satisfying if it goes 12, especially if Floyd looks like he could finish him at any time.

re: Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather (August 26th)

I would still love to see him fake a kick and mayweather dive out of the way, would be a great highlight. Rooting for a mcgregor miracle. Would also love if he lost via decision because he would talk like he won. Realistic hope is that hes not too hurt to fight in the ufc soon

re: Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather (August 26th)

This is so stupid that I feel like it has to be rigged somehow, even if it's just a tacit agreement that Mayweather will carry him 12 rounds but not **** him up too badly. The KO odds make no sense, it's a boxer versus a guy who's never boxed before, he'll be able to hit him as often as he wants to

Just saw a site with Mayweather -600.

That price is practically giving money away.

Like putting Phelps in a 100m dash against Bolt. Yeah, they are both GOATs but come on.

Back up to 1.2 (-500) on Betfair. Lots of money being matched. Really wild.
