what are the negative consequences of Dana White's mistake of allowing Conor McGregor to fight Mayweather? I think it makes MMA look bad due to the fact that Conor has bad cardio and got tired and couldn't continue. Dana White already knew this and still let him fight Floyd. Why? Because Dana made money from this this so he put himself over the UFC. The UFC isn't paying their fighters enough so some fighters have to try to find other ways to make more money.

I don't think it makes MMA look bad. McGregor gassed out, but he still went 10 rounds with the best boxer of his generation and never hit the mat. It was just Dana that made money off that, the UFC took home a handsome portion of McGregor's share.

It doesn't make MMA look bad any more than Boxing would look bad if Floyd took 300 million to fight McGregor in the UFC and got butchered inside the first round. Did Boxing look bad when James Toney got worked over by Randy Couture? The only person that might look bad is Conor for not being able to back up the smack he talked in the lead-up.

to be a boxer you need good cardio, Conor has one of the worst cardio in MMA, he gets tired all the time and then gives up, that alone should have been enough reason so Dana White didn't allow the fight to happen, he bragged about Conor's punching power but he landed on Mayweather with his a couple of his hardest punches he could land and it didn't hurt Mayweather at all. This means MMA fighters are lacking power in their punches if Dana though Conor has hard punching power and also the smaller gloves probably made it seem like this.
