    Hmmm, no UFC logo on Floyd’s poster, just a glimpse of belt. I wanna know the promotion details! How far did Dana have to bend over? 😀

  • KungFuCow

    Fight of the century? Really? This is going to be a one sided humiliation.

  • Timothy Malone

    Would pay a max of $5 for this PPV

    • Yeah i bet the LGBT community would expect a deal.

    • Sir_Roy

      I’ll pay 30$ – 50$ in beer money on my local sports bar.

    The fight might be snoozville, but it should be 2 months of fun listening to the press conferences. “You aint nuttin”

  • Darin

    Good. Let’s get this sh*tshow over with. And when it’s all done, no matter how the fight goes, everyone will state how they knew that it would go just like that.

    Then we can get back to real fights and sports being sports. Maybe.

    • Murdock

      That’s because it’s not Mayweather Jr. That’s his father, Mayweather Sr.

      Far as I’m concerned, there are many a UFC / MMA event occurring from now till then and afterward. In no way shape or form does this exhibition match (which is what it is and has never been sold as anything other) interfere with my enjoyment of those events. Unless you feel the UFC, or god forbid MMA, revolves around Conor???

      Only the lightweight belt is in any way affected by this delay. And then, I blame Khabib as much as Conor for the lull in this division, as the only interesting fights involve Khabib, Conor and Ferguson in whichever order.

      Tony’s the real only player getting screwed here.

  • macarrech

    This is bull*#$. Who am I kidding? I’m going to be watching this.

    Well congrats to Conor for landing the biggest undeserved fight ever. He will earn 10 times more money in one night than most mma fighters in history. I am serious when I applaud his baiting and hell he is getting rich! I would happily fight Mayweather too for like 50K! This is not the fight of the century this is a circus and blah blah blah to the next few months of fighters chance talk bullshite. Anyone always has “a fighters chance” but this is a joke. The real joke is that Floyd ( a rich man beyond need) is willing to go down this road for $.
    Yes many will watch and eagerly comment for months but I for one have said my peace …. don’t care anymore and will not read another article until the one with the results. Have fun peeps with your debates…….joke!

    moron alert to dumb fans: This fake circus fight is a scripted event to rip off American fans
    How stupid are you fans that actually think this is a real fight?? You dumb clueless morons that think Floyd isn’t embarrassing the irish wee man Leprechaun clumsy Conor are idiotic. This will be a scripted event with Conor getting disqualified late in the fight after being frustrated and humiliated by Floyd the world’s best boxer.
    Each of these participants will make $100 million each laughing at all you numb nuts who buy this PPV diarrhea crap event.
    Millions will watch this fake boxing match and wonder why did I pay out $89 for a mental enema and a rectal mental exam
