Thoughts on Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather…

So this long awaited fight is finally happening. It’s happening for reals… UFC fighter Connor McGregor vs. pro boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. There’s a lot of mixed reactions toward this fight I’m noticing. Many are saying that this fight will be a typical Floyd Mayweather fight. You know how they all are… fights going through 12 rounds and Floyd refusing to get hit. That’s why people hate him so much.

I’ll have to disagree, though. I used to hate Floyd Mayweather myself but respect grew over the years and now I’m a fan. I just finally came to a realization that Floyd Jr. really is an amazing fighter. He is a true fighter, in my opinion. The whole point of boxing is avoiding to get “hit” and Floyd is the master at that. No boxer likes to get hit. So why would Floyd wanna get hit? It takes a lot of technique and skill to avoid punches by your opponent. You have to keep your eye on your opponent at all times and that’s what Floyd does. I think I’ve watched a few Floyd Mayweather fights but I can’t remember which ones. The man really is a boxing genius.

A lot of people are calling Floyd a pussy and a lot of people are calling McGregor a pussy. I don’t think either of them is a pussy. They both have balls for wanting to make this fight happen. A lot of people are saying that McGregor won’t be able to survive in a ring against Mayweather but I disagree. Boxing and MMA are both pretty much the same thing. In UFC, you do a lot of boxing even though it’s mostly mixed martial arts. I’m sure McGregor is capable enough of doing some jabbing and uppercuts quite well.

Could McGregor make history and beat Mayweather’s undefeated streak? If McGregor is the one that could do it, that would be amazing. You just never know how well McGregor can do ’cause he could surprise all of us. Maybe he could be the one to finally knock out Floyd Jr. Could be a possibility. A lot of people say that people in MMA don’t have what it takes to be a boxer but like I said above, UFC takes some boxing skills too. I’m sure McGregor got trained in boxing over the years in his life. It’ll be hard to knock out Floyd but could McGregor knock down Floyd even once? This is boxing, anything can happen so don’t assume that McGregor is gonna suck. McGregor could make Floyd Jr. look like a pussy this time around.

I think this fight is interesting ’cause it’s an MMA fighter vs. a boxer. This is a fight that could prove which one does better. Does an MMA fighter box better than an actual boxer? That’s why we gotta wait and see. It’s why it’s getting boxing fans and MMA fans curious. I’m curious about this fight too and I might actually watch it myself. I enjoy both boxing and MMA. It’s just that I can’t watch those PPV’s all the time ’cause they’re so expensive. Only once in a blue moon won’t hurt, ya know? Sometimes I’ll watch a UFC ppv only if I’m interested in the card. I don’t watch boxing ppvs that much but sometimes. Again, I might actually watch this one.

While I like Floyd Mayweather Jr. and respect him, I hope McGregor does well and kicks his ass ’cause it would be history making if McGregor can do it. Hopefully McGregor can so I’m actually rooting for McGregor to win. He could do it. Ya never know, y’all.
