    Because they are so. Much. Better. Than. Conor. McGregor.

    Fucking Nate Diaz basically TKO'ed McGregor, you'd best believe Mayweather miiiight find a way to do so as well.
    Diaz vs Mayweather would be funny to watch. 12 rounds of Diaz getting punched in the face while laughing that it has no effect.

    So wouldn't it look like every match GSP has fought?? Basically pattycake.

    GSP is a smart fucking fighter too. The crowd boos because they're idiots. And also because the best fighting isn't always the most exciting fighting. That's why you have the UFC putting two shitty fighters together, standing toe to toe like morons punching each other in the face until somebody falls down. And then they call if fight of the year or some ****. Smart fighters try not to get punched in the face. Imagine that.

Why would he take this one at this point in his career?
    Money, dude. BIG money. $100 million maybe, depending on how the purses are structured. This would almost certainly be the biggest grossing prize fight of all time.

    100% agree. With all the hype the purse would be epic.

    I guess I wasn't thinking on that scale...McGregor has been getting big purses for MMA, but nothing like what his piece of a $100 million event would be. I'd take a pretty good beating for that kind of money to...

    No dude. That could be his cut. Mayweather vs. Pacquiao grossed $400M. The purse was $300M. Floyd got $180M. Manny got $120M. This would almost certainly be bigger.

    Holy Crap! I don't usually pay much attention to the payouts for fights, I had no idea an individual fighter could make that much just as his piece of the pie. Okay, forget what I said before, McGregor should be trying to get this fight yesterday!

    Right. And if I remember correctly, I think Mayweather promotes his own fights so he gets paid off the profit on the remaining revenue as well. And we haven't even started talking about sponsor money.
