    Conor McGregor in eight ounce gloves = Paulie Malignaggi knockoff

    Conor McGregor in four ounce gloves = touch of death extraordinaire

    He wouldn’t get very far in a golden gloves tournament. I’d bet serious money on that. Middleweight and below the amateurs are a shark tank and he’d get eaten alive.

    Google golden gloves Zab Judah. Conor would get wiped out by him and that's just one example.

    Your paranoia and insecurity has made your respond in a way that is completely irrelevant to my post. It's like you read my post, misunderstood it in every way and wasted your time and effort preparing your above response. Sorry for you.

    Yup, I definitely misunderstood your interpretation of MMA striking. Oh wait, pretty sure I actually didn't.

    Try harder to spin it next time honey.

    floyd's strat was to play it safe early, wait for Conor to expend his energy, attack the body and sap his cardio then turn It up In the later rounds when Conor was no longer any sort of threat. Seems pretty clear.

    Floyd Isn't the type of fighter to allow himself to take punches. Conor did present some threat, especially In those first few rounds..which Is where floyd stayed In his shell and sniped the body. At some point, Conor's Cardio went which allowed Floyd to walk forward with no fear.

    Not giving him any credit for taking on one of the best boxers of all time / greatest defensive boxer of all time Is a little ridiculous. Almost all the pro boxers In attendance, all the analysts and anyone giving an unbiased opinion gave him respect and showed him some love. Including Floyd.

    He didn't really give a terrible account of himself relative to what realistic expectations should have been (it was a terrible account relative to betting market expectations and the general outlook of people who don't know anything about boxing, but that's beside the point, I guess). That doesn't mean that he deserves adulation for making north of $50 million for what was a farcical fight.

    Goes to show how far boxing is from fighting.

    There you go again misinterpreting because of your lack of knowledge of basic English.

    My use of the term "MMA bums" does not mean all MMA fighters are bums. It means that I am directing my comments to those MMA fighters who are bums.

    For example, if I said "I went to Spain and had my wallet stolen by Spanish thieves" does not mean that all Spanish people are thieves. It simply means that thieves, who happened to be Spanish, stole my wallet.

    You are welcome for the education in not just fight school, but also English.

    Lol you're so full of shit. You specifically called Aldo, Mendes, Holloway, Alvarez, Poirier and Diaz bums. If those guys are all 'MMA bums', then who on earth isn't?

    You're welcome for the education in how to correctly read between the lines. A step up from your understanding of basic English.

    Of course those guys were MMA bums in their fights with McGregor. They exhibited no intelligence whatsoever, even though there was plenty of video of McGregor for them to watch and understand the way he fights.

    In every one of those fights, except for Holloway, the rest all bum rushed McGregor. Bum rushing bums.

    btw just watched the Ngannou vs Stipe fight and I'll tell you Stipe is a fighter I admire. He is everything that McGregor isn't. He has cardio while McGregor doesn't, and he's defended his belt 3 times while McGregor hasn't defended either of his 2 belts even a single time.

    McGregor is Dana's little baby gorilla. Not a gorilla because he's powerful like a gorilla, but because he's a protected species.

    You don't even realize how utterly insane you sound trying to discredit Conor. Everything is exagerrated to the point of insanity.

    Conor may not be a champ level boxer, but he's boxed his whole life. He did pretty well against the best boxer of all time, when he should have gotten steam rolled.

    He drops and KOs seasoned MMA guys who very rarely get dropped. In every single MMA fight he's ever had, bar the two losses earlier in his career.

    I can see why people think his power is overrated, and that there's holes on his game, ect....but his boxing is so bad that it's hilarious?

    You've got wires crossed in your brain or something. You come out with the most ridiculous observations.
