It would be. But not necessarily.
I think MacGregor is smart enough to know that in MMA there are just to many ways to lose, that its only a matter of time. People give it gripes
because there is almost a new champion every time there is a championship fight. But even in boxing at its beginning they fought with smaller gloves
on at first, and most fights did not leave the first round especially in the heavyweight division.
They only introduced those big 10 oz gloves. Not to protect the boxer, not even that they would suffer less physical or mental damage, or damage to
there hands, but purely for entertainment purposes. As with bigger gloves the matches would go on longer, and it would be more of a show, and more
spectacular. Its what people wanted to see, and what sold.
I heard today that Connor will not be defending his belt and the there will be some interim belt thing going on again. And also that he got a boxing
license, or whatever. So I take it that there is a chance that he will go box Mayweather. To tell the truth he could win against Mayweather.
All he has to do is not play his game, should be easy for Connor, dont get frustrated and dont engage in a constant chase down, and if Mayweather is
on the defensive and wont come in. Literally play a fool, call him a bitch so the whole crowd can hear, do a little piroet, take out a book from your
shorts and pretend that your reading while waiting for him to fight.
You know, something to get under his skin, and to get him to come to you and out of his game. His whole style is defensive and counter-fighting, even
if you have to just stand there and dont engage at all, literally for 7 rounds, once the crowd starts booing eventually he will have to quit playing
that game and come in. After that should not be that hard to knock him out or catch him even with those gloves on.
I dont know why other boxer never tried that before, or something similar. I mean everybody has heard of never fight your opponent at his strengths.
Which in this case would be counter boxing and getting under peoples skin, which is what from the 2 or 3 fights I seen oh him is Mayweathers
He frustrates people with his style more or less and wins on points, from what I seen, and is a great defensive and conterfighter, but its that
whole frustrating his opponents with the whole cant be touched nonesense which gets it to that point. So his counterfighting and defensive skills are
based on how much he can irritate his opponents during fights and get them to be single minded attacks which he is expecting, instead of doing all
kinds of attacks he is not expecting. The guy even has an attitude and face that makes you want to punch it. To bad an MMA match is out of the
question, a good shin kick to the face or elbow to the orbital bone, will clear that up right away.
But anyways. Now that MacGregor, is gonna go box, he may be better suited for boxing then MMA in some ways. That and no more 1 or 2 year hold up
and drama over belts. And the whole she said, he said. The # talking and posturing and melodrama build up before fights can stay, its actually
pretty entertaining, but that whole dragging on things forever should definitely go.
