Look for McGregor to be gassed after 5 rounds. Don't see him landing anything heavy though with Mayweather being 40 and 2 years removed from his last fight you never know.
I see this going to a decision mainly because Floyd doesnt finish, 9 of his last 10 fights have gone to decision, and he probably doesnt want to really dominate as a re-match could potentially generate in excess of $250 million
It's sounding like this was a bluff but I really just want the fight to happen ASAP so we can get it out of the way and get back to pure MMA. Conor vs the lightweight division's elite is more interesting for pretty much every combat sports fan than the PBF boxing match. I've said it before, but I'm mostly just interested in watching the clinch work. After watching Ward struggle against a superior clinch player, I'd love to see if Conor has responses for Floyd's clinch heavy style.
I have a really hard time seeing Connor fighting in the UFC ever again, unless the UFC are willing to pay him at least $50 million a fight. If they do pay him that amount I see Connor being showcased once a year as a must see PPV event. In addition, with McGregor Productions co-promoting the boxing match, I can see him pushing that as a stipulation for anything UFC related.
From what i read looks like Conner is getting $75 million with a cut of the PPV. It is believed of that $75 million Conner will see 20% with the remaining going to UFC/managers/training partners/taxes/commission. It will be interesting to see what his cut of the PPV will be.
Also I dont believe he has to be repped by Reebok during this fight so he could really cash in another $20-25 million in marketing endorsements for this 1 time match.
Should he come back I dont really see it clearing up the LW picture right away. I see his first fight being the trilogy vs Nate Diaz and then should GSP beat Bisping, I see GSP relinquishing the 185 pound belt and facing the winner of Maia vs Woodley for the WW belt.
Should GSP win the WW fight and Conner beat Diaz they will likely be off at the same time, which will lead to the super fight of all fights with GSP vs Conner at 170 with Conner going for a 3rd belt. If GSP beats Conner at 170 pounds I see a rematch between the 2 at 155 pounds with GSP now going for a 3rd belt
hence khabib and tony being screwed until 2019 at the earliest
