I'd put money on this being a one and done deal
Mayweather will NEVER step inside a cage for an mma fight.

I get that feeling too. I can't see Floyd ever stepping in the cage, but one can only hope.

There is always "conspiracy theory " that Conor will win so they can set up a 3 fight trilogy because it's huge money.

Why would Mayweather step into MMA? He can make 100x the money in boxing, fighting cupcakes. He'd be a fool to take a pay cut to fight in a style he doesn't know. The only upside is for Conor since he'd never make half this money in MMA in a lifetime of fighting. Conor wins either way, though his rep has taken a hit with all the race baiting. I'm sure he doesn't care atm but one day he might.

He hasn't taken a hit anymore than mayweather did for talking trash about white people in mma or Asian people before fighting manny.
That's ridiculous

Mayweather in an mma cage would pay just as much as Conor in a boxing ring.
Mayweather wouldn't do it because he knows he would get completely destroyed. Completely

Mayweather's rep was lost decades ago. He's maybe the most hated guy in sports. Everyone knows he's a jackass. Conor had a bit of charm but that's being whittled away. And there's no way on earth if this was under the UFC it would pull that purse. No way.

conor isnt hurting from any thing he has said. the only people hating on him are boxing fans. the rest of the world doesnt give 2 craps.

as for it not paying like this if it was the ufc...
who do you think put this all together. it certainly wasnt mayweather. its only in a boxing ring because mayweather knows conor would murder him in a cage.

Conor will be getting destroyed by nobodies in MMA in 2 years or less. His body will be so destroyed, he will get beat up by normal people on the street.

All that MMA training means nothing if you can barely move.

You clearly have zero idea who Conor is, or anything about mma.

Neither do you, but you'll see who he really is when he steps in against Floyd, and you're not gonna like it.

You sound like Joe Rogan and Dana White talking about Rousey, until she actually met someone that could box that destroyed her twice, no problem.

Greatest MMA fighter of all time.

Conner isn't some unbeatable god. He's just a man like anybody else.

Besides, Mayweather would be too small for McGregor. In real life, McGregor would be fight Canelo, GGG, and Jacobs, all three, bigger stronger men.
