McGregor vs Mayweather in a Street Fight The Dan Patrick Show Discusses
Right, so first things first, this isn’t a wind-up! At least one of these guys aka McLovin. Believe’s that Floyd Mayweather would have a chance against the UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor in a street fight. And he’s not joking either!
McLovin says the conventional wisdom being that Conor gets Floyd to the ground and ends the fight there. But what if he doesn’t? His argument is that Floyd may get the opportunity to pop off 20 shots and perhaps KO McGregor. Dan Patrick however, is having none of it.
This is a street fight, no boxing rules apply here. You have punches, kicks, grappling, jiu jitsu. So forget this idea that two men are going to stand toe to toe and follow the Marquess of Queensbury rule set. Patrick says that for one, Floyd is not in fact the greatest boxer of all time. He’s a great marketer. He’s done an amazing job building his persona. But he’s not the greatest boxer,
“give me Sugar Ray Leonard any day.”
One of the co hosts starts to talk about bar fight etiquette. What in the hell is that? Hey, no throwing of stools over 5kg, what? Bar fights are a melee of drunken people swinging for the fences and kicking a man when he is down. So where is this bar fight etiquette thing coming from? That somehow before MMA became popular the rules were different. Anyway..
Dan Patrick goes on to say that the fight would not even be a contest. While another co host pipes up and says that
“it’s tough to win by decision in a street fight. You can dance around only for so long. McGregor is significantly younger. So McGregor will eventually chase him down between a couple of cars.”
You can run but you can’t hide. It’s funny that anything outside of the strict rule set of boxing where a Mayweather win could even be discussed. For anyone who knows the two sports well, knows the vast gulf in the range of skills and body type required for each discipline.
We hope that Floyd doesn’t bump into Conor anytime soon in those dark Las Vegas alleyways. If his boys are at the juice bar while the boss man goes walkies. He might have some big problems.
