Are you serious?

Mcgregor would last max 3 rounds at that pace, maybe 4? All he can do is go all out with everything he's got in hopes of a KO or Clown around for....how many rounds is it? 10?


I think with the clinch and body shots there is chance that Floyd will tire quickly too. For me body shots here will serve what leg kicks serve in MMA. Slowly they will slow down the opponent.

Conor trains to fight 25 minutes. That translates to about 8 rounds. He usually has only 4 minutes rest in between, here he will have 7 minutes rest.

Floyd is getting old. He hasn't fought in two years. It is unlikely that Conor will land a clean shot, it is more likely to land that shot if he can tire him out first.

But hey, I'm an MMA casual at best. Not sure how this would work in Boxing.

Yeeeaaaa I think you'r giving Connor a little much credit and Floyd a little less than you should.

Dude has almost 50 boxing fights under his belt....I would imagine someone has come up with the idea of trying to punch him in the body by now.

You also can't say Connor has much experience with 25 minute fights. The dude has gone 25 minutes ONCE in his whole career and never defended a belt. Floyd Mayweather is a decision machine.

I'd say its a good idea for Connor to throw some body shots in early to try to tire Floyd out but at best the dude still has a punchers chance imo.

Gameplan is to finish the fight by dragging him into a brawl, and I think he will do it and get the KO.

Can't argue with that. I did start the thread by saying McGregor is fucked and has almost zero chance. There is always a punchers chance so it's not zero chance, let's say he has 1% chance. Now what we are doing exploring game plans that will increase his chance, maybe to 2% or 5% or 10% or whatever.


To be honest I don't really care for McGregor and don't care if he wins or loses. But this is like playing coach and planning for seemingly insurmountable odds.

niice video.. I might watch some of that movie, again, now. (alternate ending).


I already said it once before and i'll say it again now. I think that Connor should copy Tyson's Furry approach, in his fight against Klitchko.


Wide Karate - stance. Unpredictable haymakers from any possible angle. Make him worry. He should not let Floyd get comfortable in there.

Spoiler:
Although klitchko is not that much of a running man,and Fury's approach,'becoming' a counterstriker, worked in that case.

I can tell you for sure how well one can counterstrike Floyd's jabs and solitary left str8s, with the occasional hook -body - body - head, or whatever.. but thats what I think that he needs to do.



Don't chase Floyd. That's Floyd's game.

If I was Mcnuggets, I'd assume the centre of the ring and keep a nice wide stance and swing whenever Floyd comes close. Swing to kill, but only when Floyd closes the distance. Mock him. Try to make him overcommit by proper taking the piss out of him.

Let's look at this. McDuck is not that fast. His whole style is based on timing and counter punching. Think Mayweather, but, like a wannabe busted ass version. His whole gameplan and almost throughout the whole conference, has been a hail mary scenario in which he thinks Floyd won't handle a solid left hand.

Can he even land a punch on a fighter who has made a living on shrinking the target by 50%?

Can he counter punch a faster fighter? Because let's face it, he hasn't faced an "athletic explosive" fighter since Brimmage and he was trash anyway.

Can he eliminate the holes in his game, in time for the fight?

Can he keep his composure, when Mayweather finds his rhythm, range, and timing?

I think McDuck's biggest issue, will be that he drops his right hand to throw the left, and he'll get caught with a left hook, or left liver shot. Aside from that, Nate is slow as fuck and was able to land a one two, straight up the middle. We don't even know if McDuck's power transfers to 10oz gloves, and at 154. Some of you are buying into this notion about Mayweather being old. Shit BHop fought up into his 50's. Mayweather was able to shut down Andre Berto, who is pretty fast to say the least. Listen to Berto on youtube break down what it's like to fight Mayweather.

The mma community has pumped everyone up to believe that McDuck is a god send. No, he is the sacrificial lamb. With Dana wearing the Zuffa boxing tee, it can only be speculated, that this is the next forray for Zuffa. This is the movie, The Great White Hype in real life. Mayweather may be echoing the sentiment of being an old man, but, believe me, it's for show. This man lives in the gym.

To believe he NEEDS, the money is just a way to create a false sense of necessity, and give McDuck a feeling of false hope. Floyd never needed this fight. He wanted this fight. Why? Because he's a smart man, and he only bets on sure things. Truth is McDuck needed Floyd. He called out Floyd for nearly two years. He wanted this payday. That's why he is so calm and smiling, cuz, really....its Floyd's world. All of it. The whole shit show.

I predict Floyd will knock McDuck out.

I predicted Ronda losing to Holm.
I predicted Nate beating McDuck the first fight.
I predicted Faydoor losing to Meathead.

This is going to be an epic fall from grace.

We all agree McGregor is getting smashed. You eloquently explained what we all already know.

So the question is, If Conor paid you lots of money to come up with the best game plan for this fight, what would it be?

That's hard to say honestly, because people have gone in there with all sorts of gameplans and watched it all fall apart. With him having very limited boxing experience, I don't think there is a game plan. The best boxers in the world have lost to him, and looked bad doing it. Just collect the check and go home.

Heres my counter argument for all that..
I rememberthe great Fedor losing to werdum after looking invincible for 10 years.
I remember the great anderson losing his aura to that bum weidman. The guy who on saturday will lose his 4th straight fight.
I remember the unstoppable dominick cruz getting his ass whooped at his own game against new kid on the block cody garbrandt.
I also remember josay aldo getting knocked out by mcgregor when everyone says it would be lopsided for the FW goat.

Shit happens when people get old and cocky against young confident dudes. Not saying mcgregor will win, but it is in the realm of possibility. Crazier shit has happened
