The very idea of this taking place anywhere except on a PlayStation game would be dismisssed, scorned and derided until very recently - but it appears it's actually happening. I have to confess I have mixed emotions about this. On one hand I am aghast at the ridiculous notion that a man who has never had a professional boxing match will be able to legitimately challenge one of the all-time greats. The ultimate triumph of style over substance? On the other. I can't help but admire McGregor's balls and ability to will things into being. He was on the dole less than 5 years ago FFS. It's all about the numbers, all about the money for at least two of the three parties (Mayweather & the UFC). Obviously McGregor is hugely motivated by money too but he apparently actually believes he can pull this off and is chasing glory too. If he wins he gains immortality. If he loses he gains $100 Million plus, wipes away the snot and goes back to UFC - or indeed walks away to spend the rest of his days showing off and counting his money (or maybe doing community work). He can't lose really. Nor can the UFC. Boxing can though. Badly. And so can Mayweather. In fact he is lose/lose in my book. WIn the fight and boxing people will say 'So what, you money-grubbing cunt'. Lose and he is forever a laughing stock. Views and predictions?
