Is that basically the greatest moral victory in the history of fighting per se? Has anyone else had a loss, yet became an instant legend the same night?

Within the context of a loss McGregor seems to have done better than anyone could have asked

For a rematch Mac will have to show he can go more than 25 minutes..... I like him because he went right after Mayweather and made him fight.

They need to fight again, I think McGregor was winning on the scorecards until the ref stopped it



Floyd was just adjusting in the early rounds. Rematch would be the same or much worse unless Floyd dramatically age. Credits to Connor for making Floyd work though.

You think McGregor just peaked as a boxer?

Ok. Now let's see Mayweather go fight MMA with McGregor.

Then they can do karate or something for the tie breaker

Hearing Mayweather is just going to retire. Kinda sad. Although he has made a billion dollars so there's that

Too intriguing. The only thing better than gimmick is super gimmick.

Because it's fixed.

It's boxing, not the NBA

Great point.

 Boxing actually put the X in fixed.

I really don't care about fighting/boxing, but this has to be a blemish on boxing in general, right? It's like if Rondo said he wanted to be a QB and went out and actually played well without ever having really played the sport before.

It was a good fight and Mayweather deserved to win, but I can't believe he didn't actually just smoke him in the first two rounds. In the UFC, McGregor would kill Mayweather.

Anyway, interesting fight and I am happy it lived up to expectations.

Great boxers gets smoke in the first few rounds then proceeds to cruise in the entire fight.

I dont think that metaphor is right. Its more like, if Rondo tried 100m dash.

Boxing is a part of MMA, no where is US football a component of basketball.
