I wonder if jujitsu and Gracie ruined mma. Then again the UFC is doing damn well so I guess Gracie didn't ruin mma.
One thing I learned early in life: In any sort of competition, you don't play the other man's game.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.
That's all he's got...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."
