plz remember that it was ~ME~ who told you that everything you like is actually really not good, because I knew all along.

It is a stunning development given that Mayweather, the greatest boxer of his era, had said he was retired after compiling a 49-0 pro record from 1996 through 2015. But with a fight which could pay each man in excess of $100 million, he reconsidered.

uh welp at anyone who thinks Conor's ever setting foot in the UFC again if he's legit making $100 mil off this

The PPV will be Showtime PPV, and the main card will be all boxing.

Early line in Vegas

Mayweather -1000
McGregor +650

The odds should probably be longer than that, but they want gamblers to look at it and think its possible.

Is that for real? Both guys are getting $100 million?

No wonder Conor wanted this fight so badly.

Is tonight the greatest moment in Dominick Cruz's life?

No.

The greatest moment in my life was realizing that I didn't need a belt to be happy.


I'm happy Conor McGregor is going to make more money in 1 night than all the UFC champions ever made in their entire careers combined. it's good. boxing is alive ufc is dead.

worth noting that i've seen odds kind of all over the place right now, but bovada has conor at +500 and floyd at -800

This could really hurt the GGG-Conelo PPV, this freakshow is only 3 weeks before.

In September, casual fans might be thinking "man, gently caress boxing, I got ripped off by that Mayweather-McGregor fight, I'm not paying for that."

I goddamn hate Mayweather, but McGregor has a worse chance to win his fight than CM Punk did against Gall, right? Like, we're going to see McGregor get loving slaughtered.

Also, will there be other fights on the card before this one? I definitely want to throw or attend a party for this, but people are gonna be loving pissed if there isn't at least one competitive fight on the card.

Canelo vs GGG will be fine. It's UFC PPVs that are extremely hosed.

There will probably be like 2-3 undercard bouts, but nobody gives a poo poo about boxing undercards so it's probably safe to skip.

conor mcgregor is an accomplished combat sports athlete guy who is in his prime going up against an older defensive-minded boxer. Conor won't win a round but he will look fine out there. CM Punk didn't drink beer for 35 years before putting on a gi for the first time and then he stepped into the cage with a young animal.

Boxing is not doing well. They occasionally spike a crazy number on a single PPV, but for the most part the UFC has done better than boxing the last few years. From 2014-2016 Boxing had one PPV with >1 million buys. The UFC had 5.
