Wow... what an entertaining fight. I will give Conor his due, but at the end of the day Floyd kicked his ass. I will start off by saying that this fight was a farce. Conor needed Floyd to make this kind of money. I think the most he'd previously made was 3 million in the second Diaz fight. Secondly, this was a copout for Floyd's 50th victory. Floyd was looking to make the most possible money with the least possible risk. Conor McGregor was just the guy for that. Finally, what made this fight profitable were the morons who actually thought Conor would defeat Floyd. It's one thing to back Conor and to cheer for him... it's another to actually think he would knock out Floyd... someone who's never even really been knocked down before! (If you don't count the Judah fight, or the Genaro Hernandez fight). At the end of the day this was a business fight, made only for the sole purpose of making money. Win, lose, draw, Conor won no matter what because he would have never made this kind of money fighting in the UFC. If he lost- he was supposed to. If he won- well, that'd definitely be the greatest upset in boxing history, catapulting Conor into Godlike status.
Anyway, this is my analysis of the fight. Mind you, this definitely wasn't Floyd's greatest showing, but Floyd showed the world that Conor did not belong in there with him. For the first few rounds, Floyd sat back, watched, and then downloaded all of Conor's data. He let Conor show him what he was working with. Conor's problem was that he blew his load too quickly. Conor had shown his problem with pacing in some of his fights. Floyd knew Conor had a history of doing so in the UFC. Conor blew his load early in the second round of the first Diaz fight, and midway the second fight as well. Floyd knew this problem, and would push this agenda over the duration of the fight.
After Conor began to gas, and drop his hands in the 4th, Floyd could see Conor opening his mouth pretty wide to catch his breath. Floyd acted like a volume control dial on a stereo, whereas in the first round he had the dial on the lowest volume. Round by round, Floyd turned up the volume, and by the 4th round he began to take over. By the 6th and 7th, the music was getting to be too much for Conor to handle. It's there Floyd began to reveal his true self and showed his class above Conor. By the 9th and 10th, the music got too loud for Conor and Floyd began teeing off on poor Conor who couldn't even keep his hands up. In the 10th, Floyd turned it up to max volume, and after 15-20 unanswered blows to the head, Floyd finally kicked Conor out of the party.
I don't mean to offend UFC fans by my analysis/analogy of the fight. I actually really like MMA, as I am a huge fan of the sport as well. I even really like Conor too, but I would have much rather seen somebody who could have given a real fight to Floyd, someone who would have actually posed a threat to him in his 50th bout. Anyway, the fight was very entertaining for me. Probably the most entertaining Floyd fight in a while, but at the end of the day, Floyd kicked Conor's ass- although it took longer than I had anticipated. I had figured by the 6th he would've got it done. I'm glad Floyd knocked him out, because boxing was on trial that. It took a while to reach a final verdict but Floyd was able to defend boxing's honour.

Only read the first two lines Tales, thank you for not being naive and gullible!! People can hype up McTapper, but he did get his ass whooped, he gassed after 2 or 3, no power, never hurt Mayweather, can't box, Mayweather, at 40, is nothing like the fighter he was against Pacquiao and Berto let alone Canelo or earlier, which is part of the reason why McGregor won 1-3 rounds, and landed some punches.

Hopefully Paulie Malignaggi vs Conor McGregor happens! So Paulie can give McGregor an ass whooping!

TBH, I'd love to see Paulie vs. Conor, but let's be honest... that fight wouldn't sell lol.

I have a fight recommendation for you, Stuart Hall vs Randy Cabalerro.

Floyd played the stamina game with Conor and beat him there. Conor blew his load after a few rounds and did not have a plan B or C. To beat Floyd you need a Plan A, B, C, and D. It was obvious Conor only came with a Plan A. Conor's team obviously did not study Floyd well because Floyd had shown in many of his fights, he is almost always the one who outlasts his opponents, never running out of stamina, and pacing himself perfectly during his bouts. Floyd was a guy who wouldn't lose too many late rounds in his bouts.
