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.

Conor McGregor

Conor McGregor

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.

Floyd Mayweather vs. Ronda Rousey

In a rather surprising (and a little bit sad) turn in the war of words between boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. and mixed martial artist Ronda Rousey, Floyd has begun trotting out the ol’ “I make more money than you” line to argue he’s awesome.

Of course, Mayweather still has to fight his full fights. Rousey just finishes hers in 30 seconds.

Ronda Rousey

UFC fighter Ronda Rousey used the ESPY Awards to unleash a cuttingly perfect burn on monied boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. and his predisposition towards domestic violence.

It was, apparently, a burn Rousey had been waiting to unleash for a year.

Mayweather vs. Pacquiao

You may think this weekend’s superfight of the centuryforevermillennium is between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, but it isn’t. Not really.

It’s really about their competing musical surrogates Justin Bieber and Dan Hill.

Floyd Mayweather

When Floyd Mayweather Jr. fights Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas on May 2 the people lucky enough to watch the bout in person will have paid a handsome sum to be there.

We’re talking minimum $1,500 US per ticket-level handsome.

Fifteen hundred dollars is a lot of money a person could spend on other, less ephemeral things.

Sarah contemplated purchasing some of those other things in a piece for Fightland.
