Five Reasons Conor McGregor Will Beat Floyd Mayweather

Conor Floyd

There’s no longer a reason to doubt whether or not this fight is actually going to happen. It is clear that both fighters are on board, and Dana White has come out recently saying he would not stop the fight from taking place. Plus the latest reports point to a deal being very close to done for September (maybe?), which was basically confirmed by Conor at a boxing event not long ago.

This leaves money as the only obstacle, and because this will almost certainly be the biggest PPV event since Wrestlemania XIV… Wrestlemania XIV? The start of the Attitude Era? Boston Gardens? New Age Outlaws vs. Cactus Jack and Terry Funk in the first ever Dumpster match? The Undertaker does battle with his brother Kane for the first time ever? Stone Cold defeats Shawn Michaels to begin his reign as WWE champion? C’mon? You don’t know XIV? Anyways…

Bottom line is money will not be in short supply. There could, however, be some disagreements over who should get the larger piece of the pie or how that money should be split among promotions and organizations.  Keep in mind though, as of recently, McGregor is killing Mayweather in PPV sales. Apparently people are just now realizing how Floyd has managed to stay undefeated all these years – Never get hit, and counter effectively. Masterful boxing, but not very entertaining to the average fan.

On the other hand, Conor is a supernova of excitement both in and out of the ring. He is one of the finest trash talkers of our generation, and is able to back it up with knock outs and bloodbath performances. Still, no one seems to be giving him a shot in this match.  Some even ridicule the notion of it ever happening. Well I’m here to tell you, not only will this most certainly happen, but Conor is probably going to walk away with the victory as well. Here’s why…

Wrestlemania 32 Recap (sorta)

This might be pretty pathetic considering I don’t watch much wrestling, but if we are going to grade last night’s Wrestlemania with either a pass or fail, I’m giving it a pass.  They did just enough to keep me interested and even had a few intriguing matchups with some pretty interesting characters.

One guy who seems to move the needle is Dean Ambrose.  His match against Brock Lesnar was nothing short of average but at least there was a clear cut heel vs. hero scenario. In the end Lesnar won, but Ambrose will definitely benefit from the performance.

The only other match on the card that was worth seeing for me was Shane O Mac vs. The Undertaker.  Shane’s arrival to the WWE basically signaled my exit. However, I had always seen through years of internet boredom, that Shane went on to have an incredible career as a wrestler. He became known for doing some pretty impressive things that required both athleticism and guts. Shane would even gain the respect of just about every member of the locker room by going above and beyond to prove he belonged as proof of this video tribute to him (which I highly recommend watching).
