Lowball offer. And no mention of what % of PPV buys. Expect a lowball on that too.

Floyd tried the same BS with Manny initially mean.gif

dana wants his cut of the money. If it's a boxing match though I dunno how much they can strong arm a boxing promotion. They'd get a small share of the ppv profit.

Ferguson lost a decision to Johnson and it was close to 5 years ago.

Correct and Ferguson is quite evolved from when he fought Johnson

If there's enough money to be made BY THE UFC, the ufc and dana will allow it.

All this talk about Conor getting 15 mil plus PPV points is worthless. The real question is, how much is the UFC getting? Then we can move onto Conor.

Ferguson broke his forearm in the 2nd round and continued throwing with that arm. Obviously Johnson contributed to the break so not taking anything away from him, but worth noting. Still fought to a close decision with the injury.

Didn't Conor go on record saying he wants 50/50 if he fights Floyd?

Conor said he wants 100 million

He also just referenced cj Watson on twitter welp

I don't follow boxing. Has canelo or ggg ever made 9 figures for a fight? I know Mexican fighters have the diehard fans who will buy up ppv's.
post #36163 of 40179
I think only Mayweather makes that kind of money

Hell no.

Canelo is also light years of GGG (in terms of revenue). I think Canelo made 5M for the Floyd fight.

Side note....is there a rhyme/reason to when they air UFC Tonight? It's Wed at 8pm EST when it's on but some weeks it's there and others it's not.

I thought karyn bryant said they were taking a few weeks off.
post #36167 of 40179
fergs boxing is solid...I wouldn't say say elite...he gets by, but he aint over whelming doods with the hands

His biggest strength is his creativity and ability to mix it up, it throws his opponents off and makes it hard for them to set up and go..

dood will throw 3's and 4's, fake the take down, level change with a spinning elbow then roll into a knee bar....

tony can wrestle too, I wouldn't be surprised if he tried to outwrestle khabib to prove a point.

Hes tall and long for the division, those guys can be hard to hold down sometimes and can be spider like when they grapple you

its worth noting too that Khabib has a freakishly short reach, thats why he's always lunging forward with those upper cuts and hooks

I like tony's odds in this fight, especially since its 5 rounds.

he seems to have the confidence and momentum too....could be a perfect storm like we saw with cody.

Rewatched Penn vs Hughes 1 today. Man the whole promo video before the fight had me in TEARS.

Washed or not, BJ ******* PENN returns this weekend. One of my favorite fighters ever man.
post #36170 of 40179

bj :Nthat one of top 3 favorite fighters of all time. the first fighter in mma that knew how utilize the jab. although he ended up losing, he wrecked GSP's face in their first fight with a beautiful display of jab work. it was a boxing clinic. he completely changed GSP as a fighter after that fight. GSP went back to the drawing board and realized he needed to master the jab.

 

 

 

the most under utilized punch in MMA. :{ 

post #36171 of 40179
It's such a waste when fighters with long reaches don't use jabs or their length to their advantage.
post #36172 of 40179

Why jab when you can poke your opponent in the eye?

post #36173 of 40179
Just hoping the Penn fight is entertaining, last time he looked good was first round of Nick Diaz fight.
post #36174 of 40179
BJ working with both Greg Jackson and Jason Pirillo

I say BJs path to victory is to get a takedown, pass his guard and submit him
post #36175 of 40179
If the fight were to happen.

Floyd is good at selling a fight. He will carry Connor throughout the fight keeping him in it. But ultimately Floyd is just too good and tactical and just win on all score cards.

He did this in the maidana fight so it could warrant a rematch having people buy up PPV's yet again.

It would be a mockery of combat sports. I mean, Conor's been embarrassed before but this will be something on a completely different level

 

Conor should just keep up with his "Floyd won't face me in a real fight". That's the honest truth that he can keep putting out there

I don't tink Conor minds Getting embarrassed for like 50 mil

Maybe he wouldn't. Going into the match it'd be a given he'd get destroyed so maybe that takes away the impact of the embarrassment to a degree 

post #36179 of 40179
I think Conor is okay with getting washed if he can maximize that payout sick.gif
post #36180 of 40179
conor has nothing to lose stepping into his world. he's experienced defeat before and at the end, it's all about the money
