5 Lessons We Can Learn From Mayweather-McGregor

Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor

Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor

The superfight of the supercentury — a boxing match between noted boxer Floyd Mayweather and noted martial arts and far less noted boxer, Conor McGregor — ended reasonably predictably.

(Mayweather waited around for a little while, then decided to start beating up McGregor, then won in the tenth round by TKO.)

There was tons of money made all around.

But were there any lessons learned? Sarah found five of them, which she articulated for Asian World Of Martial Arts.

Floyd Mayweather And Conor McGregor Set To Fight

Floyd Mayweather versus Conor McGregor

Floyd Mayweather versus Conor McGregor

In what will likely be the most lopsided inter-disciplinary fight since mixed martial artist Randy Couture erased boxer James Toney in an MMA fight in 2010, martial arts loudmouth Conor McGregor is going to take on detestable human/very elite pugilist Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match.

The only good things to come out of this fight are the following:

a) It will help identify which friends of yours are suckers who’d willing pay money to watch this.

b) One of these two — McGregor — is going to get well beaten up.

5 Style Clash Fights That Pre-Date McGregor-Mayweather

Very good boxer and self-promoter Floyd Mayweather and very good mixed martial artist and self-promoter Conor McGregor have been talking big about staging a fight between the two combat specialists for a number of months now.

Boxing vs MMA is one of the great “who would win?” questions in combat sports.

There are, however, other fighting disciplines that have been tested against each other in the past.

Cyborg Is Fighting In The UFC And It’s (Partially) Conor’s Fault

Cris “Cyborg” Justino, the most dominant female MMA fighter outside of the UFC will now be fighting inside the UFC.

Cyborg is too heavy to compete in UFC’s current female weight classes, but the recent success ($$) of Conor McGregor’s catchweight fight has encouraged the promotion to do more non-weight class-based fights.

Hence, Cyborg vs. Leslie Smith at UFC 198.

Conor McGregor is very good at inspiring fifth generation Irish descendants to be really irritating in sports bars on fight nights.

Now, the notorious one can also say he inspired Batman.

Specifically, the fighting style used by Ben Affleck’s Batman in Batman v Superman.
