That's if you call a poking jab a punch. How did the judges actually score that?

I really don't mean any offense but it's obvious you don't understand boxing. McGregor won the first round agreed. But the second round could go either way. Conor threw 4 times as many punches and didn't even land twice as many. Then third round he threw 3 times as many with out landing twice as many. While pushing the fight is great, accuracy and defense matter. The rest of the rounds Floyd landed more punches while throwing less in most rounds. He also landed almost as many punches in the final 4 rounds as conor did in the whole fight.

Floyd's game plan worked just like they expected. Let CM wear himself down and then slowly pick him apart. Winning the first few rounds wasn't his goal. CM had nothing left in the tank, it was a good stoppage by the ref. Spared him from being KO'd later.

It also was an unorthodoxed fighting style, which typically takes a few rds to figure out. It's not uncommon for southpaws to give right handed fighters problems.

Several people had unofficial had it 3-3 and I can't fault them. I also can't fault official cards that had it 1-5 based off the stats. Personally I had it 2-4

Yeah McGregor really disappointed me, and made MMA look bad, with his lack of power punching and lack of conditioning for the fight. He has a quick, sneaky jab that's accurate, but its not a hard punch at all - it would really be a good set-up punch for something else that comes in harder after it, but he apparently doesn't have those bullets.

I was hoping as the fight continued that he would get his range and start hitting harder, but he never did. I guess he gave what he had to give. I knew Mayweather would come on in later rounds unless he wanted to throw the fight.

I also didn't expect McGregor to drain out on energy like he did given he wasn't exerting himself a lot with heavy punching, and I always thought MMA fighters were far more conditioned than boxers. But then do they have 12-round MMA fights like in boxing? I know when MMA fighters take a hard punch that makes them seem dazed, the refs jump in quickly and stop the fight, never giving those fighters a chance to prove they can shake it off and continue. Perhaps MMA fighters are pussies compared to boxers.

I know Mayweather would'nt last long in the Octagon with - not a top MMA fighter like McGregor, but even 2nd and 3rd-tier MMA fighters, because of their skill sets. But MMA fighters do learn striking skills (punching), so a top striker from MMA I thought could handle himself better in a boxing match. But whenever Mayweather chose to turn it on in the later rounds, he pretty much dominated McGregor, then McGregor lost his stamina like turning the light switch off....

It was all about money for both. CM knew his chances of winning were slim to none, but for the money he didn't care. His trash talk building up to the fight was just to generate interest and bring more money in. They just milked it.

McGregor has often ran out of gas. This should be no surprise.
