    I'm assuming you didn't watch the pacquiao fight and don't know much about the fighters.

    Mayweather had a 5 inch reach advantage on pacquiao. Mayweather spent that whole fight using his reach adavantage to keep pacquiao away. Pacquiao had so much trouble as he had to come in so far to get a shot off and each time took a bunch of damage. On the other hand mcgregor had a 2 inch advantage over mayweather so he couldn't do that.

    Nothing to do with the power of the punches.... pacquiao was a way easier fight for him. I watched it and literally pacquiao couldn't get a single decent punch landed.
    Sorry, that was exaggerated, he obviously doesn't want to get hit; but rather I felt his plan or purpose was to draw more punches out of McGregor than his fight vs Pacquiao.

    I watched the Pacquiao fight, I still feel that fight McGregor fight was still such a breeze for him. You obviously know more about the fights and fighters than I do; I am just going by what my eyes saw.

    I called exactly the match, though I thought it would have ended in the 8th... so props to McGregor

    that said, knowing Floyd, watching him through the years against Cotto, Mosley, De La Hoya, Pac man... I knew that for the first 3 rounds he'd have to feel out his opponent and let him blow his wad early.

    From a boxers perspective, omg... the stance, the lack of effenciency, lack of defence and the awkwardness of trying to switch back and forth from southpaw... I thought from the first opening rounds, boy can McGregor keep this up.

    So lets say this... everyone is giving props to the fact that he landed 111 or so punches in under 10 rounds... whereas other haven't

    well this is why:

    1. Reach
    2. Its because he threw 430 punches in under 10 rounds!!!
    3. Reach and Floyd knew that he could only win in stoppage if he moved to the inside, which creates more exposure... and lets be honest, we've RARELY ever seen Flloyd move forward

    Why McGregor lost... is because he threw SOOO many punches, landing only 28%...
    Imagine that... basically hitting a heavy bag for 30 minutes, to the point of exhaustion that you can't even "react" to the faster fighter, nor even protect yourself to put your gloves up

    Props to McGregor, but lets be honest guys... he lost to "less than prime" (though the GOAT) that does in fact happen to have less reach and likely alot less weight. (gauranteed McGregor cut, and Mayweather didn't)


    I'd love to see McGregor acctually slug it out with triple G, and see if McGregor really has the same type of stopping power as someone closer to his real weight category

    This whole fight was weird.
    haha I laughed pretty good at this.
