    I know some people thought McGregor would have the advantage in the clinch, being better at grappling. But grappling trying to take down your opponent is different from clinch fighting in boxing where you're trying jockey for position to punch, although there are some definite similarities. GGG trains the clinch with wrestlers for a reason. But just because you know wrestling doesn't you mean know how to apply it in boxing. McGregor probably didn't know have anybody in his camp to tell him about all the nuances of infighting. Floyd is also one of the best infighters in the game.

    He got hit in the nuts. Even the most casual of fckin fans must realise it's an illegal blow. Was he hurt or was he waiting for the ref to speak with Connor. 2 of the 3 judges also scored round 9 as 10-8 cus your boy got smacked around the ring by some little old dude.

    Connor looked like shit after r1 and got embarrassed, yet fools are still making these laughable threads

    It was clearly a nut shot. Do you honestly believe 'Floyd was in trouble of getting finished' when he immediately started to beat the shit out of him like the Irishman owed him money?

    Just learn to deal with it and move on with your life man...

    I decided to do an on camera interview with Jeff today. It was spur of the moment and please don't mind the wrinkled shirt, fat stomach, thinning hair, stuttering, lack of proper posture and positioning.

    Here's a new angle.

    Time stamped. Pause it as soon as it starts. Clearly below the belt.

    If he hadn't gassed and if he had mastered the ways of boxing, he even might have won.

    You mean if he didn't quit ? Just like any punching bag , would've sustained serious damage

    Not sure why you want boxing to get a big black eye with the death of a famous mma fighter , dudes a family man this is not old gladiator days

    If you can't hack the pace then are you really a fighter?

    If he hadn't gassed? He fucking did gas. He was apparently in the best shape of his life according to Dan Hardy Joe Rogan Dana White and Stone Cold.

    Eating shots like gummy bears comes in handy in the gassing process.

    No more threads on this. There is a separate forum and a sticky here just for it.
