That was a really intense fight. Also, boxing is a fucking pussy sport and all those announcers were condescending assholes. Mayweather would get murdered in the UFC.


Boxing is a gentlemen's sport. UFC is just animal behavior.

It's a very different set of skills and rules. I was mostly just frustrated by how disruptive and limiting the rules were in this match. UFC rules makes sense to me; they let a fighter's skills shine. Boxing makes it easy to almost semi-cheat your way to victory.

Thanks, Coach. That thread is kind of a mess now, but I found a good one by digging around in it.


Yeah, I had them all opened up very early on and one lasted until the end of the main event.

I thought it was a very entertaining fight. Much better than the boxing experts claimed it would be. Saw this stat on Twitter:

Punches landed against Mayweather:

Canelo: 117
McGregor: 111
Pacquiao: 81

You should go watch some tapes from the 80s, Sugar Ray, Hagler, Hearns, Duran.

I think both MMA and Boxing are sports. Both are also entertainment, too.

That was a decent fight. Think the ref stopped it a little early, but still got a deserved winner.

Still better than what the boxing experts predicted. Some felt the fight should not have been sanctioned, fearing for the safety of McGregor.

People comparing the Alvarez-Golovkin decision to Pac-Bradley I are idiots.

The Pac decision was about 1,000 times worse.
