So apparently Connor has requested to fight Khabib in Russia as his return fight to MMA.

​​​​​​​Are we fools if we think this fight actually happens?

Some really sweet form and technique there, exactly the kind you need to be competitive against a 49-0 boxer.

If someone does that in the ring with no helmet on, it is very likely they will be knocked unconscious. He's not even looking at his opponent's right hand.

Pacquiao's left hand is in Floyd's path of vision and not in great punching position, he could avoid it. Much like Conor, you don't have to worry about Pacquiao's right hook very much at this stage of his career.

If Pacquiao's left wasn't in that position, that's not a jab anyone should be throwing.

Floyd can get away with things that normal boxers can't because his reflexes are so fast.  I know that sounds like a cop out, but it's true.  Same with McGregor, Silva, Jones, etc. in UFC.

Floyd has also gotten tagged doing stuff like that before. Mosley nearly lifted him off his feet with a looping right hand that he sent around a lazy jab. Another difference is that Floyd is a master punisher of people who have bad habits. His recent record doesn't show that because he's fought against guys who don't have many of them.

It's too bad Floyd didn't come back against somebody like Crawford. I am reasonably certain that Crawford would stop him.

Now if you want to make a real comparable, Floyd vs. Judah is a good one. Floyd throws out a lazy jab and Judah rocks him with a right hook.

These are both worth listening to. There's a bit of an awkward minute from 1:10-2:10 in the second video when they're watching Conor's amateur sparring video that's not being shown, but Parillo's insight is great.

He's a legit trainer but didn't realize that he knocked out a few cans.

Day 4 of Mayweather-McGregor ticket sales winding down. Still more than 3000+ seats, TM changed limits from 2 to 6 to try to move tickets.

That's surprising because all the social media and internet interest indicates this to be one of the biggest events of the year. I think it will still pop a big buyrate but this makes things interesting.

Those pics above.  It's always risky throwing a lead hand, to be successful you have to be lightning quick and catch your opponent off guard.  The biggest difference in the pics that jumps out is that Floyd is within range of Pac's face and is not lunging forward with the punch.  He is squared up and prepared for a counter attack.  Contrast that with Connor who is lunging his entire body forward to try and connect with the lead right.

That is the kind of punch Connor likely thinks he can get away with because his range is a few inches bigger, but if Floyd is prepared with a counter punch, Connor will get his bell rung.

As far as Paulie-Mags goes.  I don't think he thought Team MAC was there to paint him in a positive light, maybe just not skew things at all. Keep them private.

People seem to still be falling for this circus routine even though they're all sharing a plane together during this bullshit tour.

Not like I was in before, but after learning that, that's when I was all the way out.

This is what it's supposed to look like when a southpaw throws a jab.

Yep. A jab is supposed to be stiff and deliberate.  What I mean to say in my break down is that it is risky to throw a jab....like a lead hand.

That just made me so much more excited for the fight. I believed Paulies story and it made me feel like Mcgregor was so dead going into the Mayweather fight. He still might be but not nearly as bad as if what Paulie was saying turned out to be true.

I think it'll be a few good rounds of boxing, followed by Floyd then just taunting the winded Conor for the rest of the fight and letting it go to the cards just because he's like "fuck you, I'm going to make this an embarrassment".

It is either that, or Floyd fucks up and eats a really bad punch for a KO by Conor.

Paulie had zero head movement in those vids.  No wonder Conor tagged him.  If people somehow think Floyd is gonna do the same thing, they areally sadly mistaken.

I'm saying Floyd by KO in 5 only because he lets it go that long. Conor won't land anything of consequence.

Here's another fun game- what are the highest cover charges bars in your area are putting up to get in to see the ppv? Top one I've seen in Toronto is $50.

$40 to watch it at the movie theater is about tops in Sacramento area.

I am going to be in Monterrey for my 10th anniversary during this weekend.  The original plan was to split the PPV three ways with a couple friends.  I am going and try to catch a stream online if we are back at the hotel during the main event.  If not, my phone will be buzzing with live alerts.

Do you guys think there is any chance that the fight hits around the 9-10th round and McGregor is so gassed and marked up that he doesn't answer the bell?  I am just wondering in my head if he is severely gassed and is self conscious that coming off that bench means getting KO/TKO'd. I suppose that is better for pride than merely not answering the bell.

I'm intrigued how this works because our local BW3's is real shitty about cover and entrance/exit to family area/bar area. A Fox and Hound about 5 miles from me has the best set up for PPV's so I bet they do it but I haven't seen what they are charging.

My GF wants to watch it, but unless I can get a couple people to throw down or if she wants to put down $50, I don't think I can justify it. I am a mark for spectacle, but I just don't want to invest money into what is clearly a mismatch, no matter how much lipstick they put on Conor.

My BWW was charging $10. Twin Peaks was charging $25 and a local bar/restaurant was charging $40!

It's Mamaramu's birthday and she wanted to see the fight. So we're ordering it at the parent's home, some friends are coming and we're having Mexican food catered from a local restaurant. It'll probably still be cheaper than a bar after all is said and done.
I watched RAW. I thought it sucked. The usual problems and such.

That's always been my thing about going to bars for boxing/MMA. Unless you're content to nurse beers (and I'm not) then between cover, drinks, and potential taxi/Uber home it's not always the best deal. On top of that, it usually brings out the stereotypical meathead fans, and while that atmosphere can be fun, it also can be awkward with how over the top some people get into it.

There is a place one block from my apartment that I usually go to for PPV's.  I typically eat before I leave and then I meet up with a couple of friends for the prelims and get a good seat.  No cover.  Usually drink about six or seven cheap beers and come out with about a 25 dollar tab.

Unless you find a place with fight night deals up here, a beer will run you 5-7 dollars easy. Have 6-7 (plus tip), 10-20 dollar cover, 20-30 dollar Uber home and goodnight Irene. Not saying you couldn't find places here with no cover and cheaper drinks but they are few and far between.

Here in Dubai, the fight starts at 8 AM and almost every bar is sold out (with most opening doors at 6 AM). Most are offering a breakfast buffet with unlimited non-alcoholic drinks plus the fight for about $35 to $50. Alcohol is extra everywhere.

I'm saying Floyd by TKO in 6. First round or two will be wild Conor flurries and Floyd starting slow, before Floyd gets it together and just batters Conor til the refs stop it.

Do places in the U.S have to pay extra fees for showing ppvs? In Canada the charge to legally broadcast a show is pretty expensive, around a couple thousand which is why you see very few bars showing UFC and WWE events these days unless they're really big ones.

I'm sure they do. My local BWW stopped showing UFC cards. The manager told me they had to pay $5,000 a year to air the ppvs.

I wish!  It's actually a pretty large restaurant with two seating areas (one with a projector screen) and an area with games and pool tables and such.  It also has one of those punch-strength measuring machines which has led to many (good natured) drunken challenges with country boys!

This sounds like a place where you can tell a story that beings with "So Dolph Lundgren walks into a bar..."

My prediction is shenanigans that just piss off most paying people that wanted to see an actual fight.  If it's a straight up fight where Conor is happy to be getting paid his worth and it's all on the level, he sees that he's entirely out of element after five minutes and walks himself into a KO.  If it goes much longer than that, it's stopped between rounds after Conor lands 3% of his punches to Floyd's 70%.

Here's the way I think it will play out, since I don't think I've given my opinion on it yet:

Conor comes up pretty aggressive and Floyd isn't necessarily confrontational leading the rubes to believe Conor is winning the first round and a half.  Floyd then starts to go to work and gets the finish between rounds 4-6, earlier if Conor is reckless in his early aggressiveness.
