40 to 1 odds in favour of Mayweather. Im putting 100 bucks on McGregor. Could be a nice pay day if he lands a lucky shot.
Almost. Looks like he had Money hurt with a body shot but than decided to follow it up by hugging instead of throwin bombs.. A bit early stoppage as well imo but im used to ufc refs and they tend to give a fighter a chance.
Yup. You win some you lose some.

I'm sure you're not going to lose sleep over the $100 and it gave you a rooting interest. It made the fight fun for you.  

As for me, I laid in bed and listened to an audio book.  2 hours in, I switched over and saw the unfortunate results.

As for "Money"...

He seems like a nice man.  He handled himself well and with class.  Well done.

It was "the night" for some "sports fans" who paid big bucks.  Oh my goodness!, hey, what can I say.  I hope they got what they wished for.  ;D

Pretty much went the way I thought - and thus didn't have to shell out the 100 shecks to see the abomination.

King Irish proved he's got a bigger and more vicious mouth than he's got punch and stamina.

Money toyed with the Fake King for 3 or 4 rounds and then went to work - as Jim Ross from WWE would say - he dissected him clinically - until King Mouthy's barskank conditioning proved his undoing - and he was basically a standing popeye with a sand base (remember those). Money probably could have knocked him out - but a gentleman's agreement ensued - a destroyed Conor would have little to no value in future UFC outings + despite their phoney/baloney acrimony in the pre-fight fakery, Conor & Money might want to do business together; either in future movies, talk-show appearances, Las Vegas acts, etc.

While I criticize the fight (and the entire game actually) I still think that next to Muhammad Ali - Conor McGregor might be the best talker in the history of the game. Great vitriol, superb insults, vulgar and loud. Ali was a bit more subtle (can't believe I just called Ali subtle) Conor could have a great future taking a couple more Dana White promoted "super-fights" in UFC, he could take on a couple more boxing encounters against lesser men than money or he could roll his canoe over to Vince McMahon's WWE - where he'd instantly be the top talker of all-time . . . . .and in the fake world of Vince, he'd never get gassed, he'd always have control, etc.

Another minor reason Money couldn't (or wouldn't) knock McGregor out - Money has bad hands - and punching hard enough to send Conor sprawling to the canvas might injure his hands!

I boxed a little when I was young and, to put it mildly, it is exhausting.  McGregor wasted all his energy early trying for the knockout - which was the smart move.  He didn't succeed and was spent by the middle of the fight.

I give the Irishman credit.  He got in the ring with the greatest fighter of his generation and didn't embarrass himself.  And he collected a cheque for $100M for his effort.  Not too bad for a kid from Ireland.

$100 mill for that fight?  For sure, no embarrassment whatsoever!  Wow, good on him!  Next time around with proper boxing training he'd even do better, would lose but one tough, and smart SOAB!

Mayweather in round 3 or earlier.
I say Mayweather in 5 or 6 - he will want to drag it out for everyone who paid big bucks to watch the fight.

I want the Irishman to win but, sadly, it won't happen.

I read somewhere that most of the bets placed were for McG, but most of the money bet was for Mayweather. The avg McG bet was something like $200 and the avg Mayweather bet was more than a grand.

I do indeed   I don't know if it's not having an off topic forum or that the cats suck making the cats board lame or a combo of the 2 that's the problem... but man I'm not feelin this MB anymore

Well 'nice man' would be a stretch if Mayweather's ten year old son's witness statement is to be believed in regards to Mayweather's track record of assaulting women.

One of the reasons I paid no attention to anything about this 'event'.

Didn't know he was a wife beater.  Obviously having lots of money isn't doing much for his mindset and personality.  Sad.

That's not good. They can stand to lose me as a poster but not you dawg.. 

I surf the giants forum from time to time but haven't participated on there in a very long time. Basically just getting my fix

So basically I'm a free agent forum member. Looking for a home

No worries Earl. Scott Mitchell of the Ticats has offered Money the services of Sailor Art Briles as his personal lifestyles coach!!!
