If its 6.5 , praise to both TBE and King Conor. TBE brought the history recorrd and pedigree, King Conor brought the mouth and the intrigue. Conor is the new PPV King with Floyd retired, no doubting that.

I really like it. It will give motivation to the other athletes who want to give it a shot. I heard Mikey Garcia and Max Holloway are gonna have some kind of exhibition boxing match.

Lets be real here, both sports have dwindled a bit. Suffering from low numbers, lack of good fights, and pullouts. At the very least, for the sake of business, there is always boxing vs MMA potential.

Sure its tougher for a boxer to suddenly embrace non boxing skills, but the boxer will always have the Ace in the hole with their boxing, because we well no, pro boxing skills are light years more advanced than MMA striking. There will be more, the incentive is there.

Two quick strikes, Austin aint even out of bed yet. :smile81:

The real laugh is that Canelo GGG got completely dwarfed. Virtually no one has talked about it, and even after the fact ppl just shrug their shoulders n say, should be a good scrap.. pick em

Oscar, canelo, ggg cant generate fight interest worth shit!!

If dick shaeffer was running the show....

I feel like this only works with MMA fighters coming into boxing, not the other way around.

True. Boxers have it too nice to be trying to roll around on the ground in underwear with sweaty men.

Plus, if we are being real, MMA fighters train "some" boxing, while a boxer would be starting from scratch. Plus boxing is where the $$ is.

The "Some" boxing is a mockery at that. They've fooled MMA fans into believing that its close to the real thing, threw the word "dirty" in front of boxing. Thats why they really thought Conor was going to beat Floyd.

These mofos have nowhere near the stamina, nowhere near the footwork, none of them punch hardened, and virtually all of them arm punch. Shit, even Conor arm punches, but he's strong and has good timing, so he catches all those weak chinned fools. And he goes life and death with Nate, big deal, Nate would be a regular KO victim in pro boxing....and would be slurring even more than he does now.

Dana white full of shit. Apparently the numbers are closer to MayPac, it may or may not break that record. If it does, it won't be by much, SHO's executive Espinoza said they are trending in the "mid-to-high" 4 million range

Exactly. they overplayed the hand, and the market didn't respond.

Who knows though, maybe if they drop the prices, the get more people but less total money.

No reason that place should not have been at capacity, or close.
