    I think it's got to be mayweather in a straight boxing fight but McGregor is tough as **** so it'll last a lot/all the rounds?

    Why can't we all get along? Why do we always have to fight?
    Stupidity angers me.

    My thoughts are Mayweather wins on points if it goes all rounds. McGregor wins by knockout if it doesn't. As you said, McGregor is tough as ****. And has great knockout power.

    It will be interesting to see how this fight plays out.

    My only wish is that it would go the other way. MMA is so much more interesting a sport than boxing. But now even local hero Stipe is calling out Anthony Joshua for a boxing match.

    As for this McGregor vs. Mayweather, MMA makes for a more well-rounded fighter BUT when you remove the need to wrestle and kick, the training becomes so different. I wonder if the small window of rules that boxing allows will be McGregor's doom.

    Mayweather is a dancer, he is great at not fighting, so I think he will dance around the ring and win. I would love to see McGregor win though.

    Not doing any grappling moves will be easy. Kicking is the hard thing to break oneself from doing because it's trained into the various combinations. McGregor has hopefully been training solely boxing to break the habit of kicking.

    Shawn, I'm hoping McGregor can corner Mayweather and keep his dancing around to a minimum.

    I hope Mayweather but I'm worried about his age to be honest.

    I feel like Mayweather will try and outlast him by not fighting, exactly as Shawn said. To make it a more interesting fight I wish they would have had boxing rules for 3 rounds then switch to MMA rules for at least 1. I think then Mayweather would feel the need to at least dance less, I don't think he would want to be in the ring when MMA rules apply.
