Went as expected. Pretty weak TKO stoppage. 

Yeah, everyone at the party I was at were pissed about that. It seemed like the fight was just getting exciting and the ref stopped it.

You guys really think stopping it wasn't in McGregor's best interest? LOL He was getting destroyed and was clearly exhausted and couldn't defend himself. The ref did him a huge favor and took his safety into account, 5 more seconds and he'd have been face flat on the canvas. 

 

Mayweather had the perfect gameplan, and if you've watched any of his fights in the past you could see early on exactly what he was doing. Sadly though the MMA fans viewed it as Conner "holding his own" when in fact he was being set up to be slowly picked apart. If Floyd trained hard for this fight and took it as serious as he would for a guy like Canelo or Maidana, etc. He could've easily handled business in a much more impressive fashion, but he knew he didn't need to to beat this guy. The fans would have also been pissed to see it end early, his plan at least made it to where people got some worth for their money like he said. He didn't look old to me, he just looked liken a guy that knew he needed to do the bare minimum. Going on offense the way he did after 4 rounds also made him look even more un Floyd-like, but again, it kept the people happy. He couldn't stand in there and box tactically with a first time fighter, that's like trying to play smart, patient poker with a novice who has no concept of hand values and shoves his chips in on every hand. Kellerman said Floyd would carry him for several rounds before ending it and that's exactly why happened. 

 

Connor's prediction of inside 2-4 rounds was a pipe dream and he knew it.

Exactly, the guy couldn't even protect himself or hold his gloves up. He was taking straight shots to the face.

 

More so McGregor was saved from a punishing knockout stoppage that would have hurt his rep more.

Not sure why people are bitching about the fight being stopped early. Mayweather just destroyed him in the ninth and up until stoppage. The question should not be "why was the fight stopped too soon?" The question should be "Why was McGregor even allowed in the ring with Mayweather?" Clearly outmatched in a sport he doesn't even participate in. It truly looked like an amateur fighting the world champion.

 

Boxing McGregor equals Rhonda Rousey hype with same result.

Mayweather deserves an asterisk just like Roger Maris got in '61.

As far as I'm concerned, he's still tied with Marciano at 49-0. His 50-0 record is tainted, IMHO.

I'd guess Marciano had some creampuffs in there

But so did Mayweather. I doubt RM fought anyway that was known for being something other than a boxer.

 

Connor did better than most thought he would but he was never a real challenge for Floyd.

 

I think it goes to show how  much people really don't respect records and such anymore.

 

They let a known and obvious steroid user hold the HR title and the boxing association just let Mayweather take hold of what should be considered an extremely prestigious record by fighting someone who is a amateur in the sport of boxing.

 

They are ok with people cheating or making their road easier in order to achieve a great record.

 

Sports themselves are diminishing the significance of records in their respective sport.

 

I'm really surprised the boxing association isn't getting blasted for allowing it to happen. Everyone was and still is just so caught up in the theatre of it more than the meaning and sifnificance of Floyds record right now.

 

I think by the end of the week or next week we will hear more about the record and how most people will take it.

But even the shots Mayweather was landing werent rocking Mcgregor. He was gassed. I get the stoppage but Id rather Mayweather put him on the canvas.

How about Floyd trying to place a $400k bet on himself to win by KO in under 9.5 rounds (which he did) and getting denied LOL

 

https://www.cbssports.com/boxing/news/mayweather-tried-to-bet-400000-on-the-mcgregor-fight-but-was-denied/

Lmao. No he didn't. 

 

And he was making millions win or lose and he only wanted to bet 400k? 

 

What confidence lol.

I would have preferred a knockdown as well and was a little upset in the heat of the moment. But no doubt it was the call the should have been made.

 

But it was very possible McGregor didn't get knocked down. 

 

Floyd had already landed serious blows, but as you said, still couldn't put him down. When the fight was stopped McGregor was on the ropes. It is very possible that McGregor leaned on the ropes while Mayweather pummeled him as opposed to falling through them or to the ground.  It that was the case it would have been really bad. And the UFC would have raised hell.

 

I have a feeling if they were in the middle of the ring, it doesn't get stopped and Mayweather makes him fall.
