I wonder if jujitsu and Gracie ruined mma. Then again the UFC is doing damn well so I guess Gracie didn't ruin mma.

That press conference was such a circus. Just fight. I hope this fight doesn't turn into the one like Ali vs thr Japanese wrestler. Co or is stupid for thinking he can go one dimensional and beat Mayweather. I think Conor can kill Mayweather in the Octagon but not in a boxing ring.
One thing I learned early in life: In any sort of competition, you don't play the other man's game.

I wouldn't pay $100 to watch any athletic event. Both the combatants seem like such obnoxious men that I am quite indifferent to the outcome. Since Mayweather is heavily favored, I have a natural tendency to root for the underdog, but then I ordinarily would favor a boxer over a mixed martial artist, so that kind of balances things out. Although all the smart money seems to be on Mayweather, McGregor does have a substantial advantage in size and youth. I think the latter may have a "puncher's chance."

That's all he's got...

Well, I see Mayweather stopped McGregor in the 10th. The latter was never knocked off his feet. I am inclined to think referees are much more hasty about stopping fights these days. I supposed that's for the better. At least McGregor made a real fight of it in the early rounds, and it wasn't the one-sided slaughter that many pundits had predicted.

Should I bother watching it? Was it better than Ali and the Asian guy? Is Mayweather still saying he's the greatest of all time?

McGregor performed better than I thought he would, but he tired very quickly in the last 3rd..

It appears he is leaning towards embodying the title of this thread - as long as someone pays him to do either sport, win or lose.

wait, you thought an undefeated fighter who drew with Wilder in his previous fight was washed up?

Plus his new trainer is a disciple of Emanuel Steward(his nephew) and had him focused on their aggressive fight plan. Wilder can't fight moving backwards.

All of that was pretty moot once Wilder got hit with that right on the ear. He never recovered.

I remember him doing coke and the tabloid photographs of him being fat. I don't recall his father was terribly positive on him at that time.

exactly. Fury could always box. His new trainers taught him to punch with power. He upped his weight on purpose to support that more aggressive plan.

completely defeated Wilder’s one-gun-will-overcome-everyone approach.
