Consumed virtually all the content there is to consume for this event. Lapped it up like no tomorrow. The richest fight in combat sports history deserves no less. And it looks highly likely they’ll both be gunning for a finish.
I expect to see TBE show up on his 50th and final professional bout and school a truly great martial artist in the sweet sweet science. If it goes as expected the MMA community will learn to respect the sport of Boxing the hard way when Floyd lights McGregor up. Pot shots, shoulder rolls, lightning speed. Floyd too quick and too slick. McGregor will be surprised by Floyd’s power and (if need be) his chin. It should be a clinic.
The one thing in Floyd’s way is the illustrious mind of a unique martial artist. McGregor is a living, breathing homage to the immortal Bruce Lee. At the right moment he has a talent for precision and timing. Conor has at most a round or two to shock Floyd with something special.
All in all I’m sad to see Floyd go. It’s styles and skillsets like his, Pernell Whittaker’s from the past and Vasyl Lomachenko today that don’t get anywhere near the appreciation they deserve. Guy’s a damn artist in between those ropes.
