Hate to speculate but if its dementia it's set in pretty fast

He was always one of my favorites and I've tracked his career rather closely. Always down to scrap too, never a boring fight. You can see where his articulation is not quite the same

I don't see McGregor's "style" having any real effect, Maidana's style is smothering and awkward. If anything I would compare his style to Pacman in it's jarring effectiveness. However, Mayweather figured him out by deterring him with the long jab and spinning him to force him to reset. Hatton's style was predicated on some of the same things. The way you cut off the ring is footwork. It allows small fighters like them to get to a spot and close space and utilize angles.

Part of what makes this an uphill climb for Connor is because of Floyd's speed he will be thinking before he throws his punches, a lot of what goes into being a great boxer is instinctual. Instinct comes from years upon years of repetition.

Mayweather has seen every combination McGregor will ever learn to throw and once he sees the opening he will be instinctively letting go of his hands.

Mayweather in 5 or 6. Should be entertaining

Good excuse to get together with family & friends for me

You make good points of comparison with Pacquiao and Hatton but the only thing we have to go off is Mcgregor's UFC fights, when striking on his feet. Clean, fast and sneaky counterpunches with tons of power: but that's his comfort zone where he's supremely confident with years of training, competing and all of his muscle memory aligned with how to succeed in the Octagon.

If he doesn't outright bumrush from the get-go, a round or two of dealing with Mayweather's transcendent footwork, speed, and boxing acumen is going to corral Connor's team into seeing a swarm attack as his only chance of victory. Cue the wild haymakers and overhand punches while Maidana is screaming at his TV, "Finally, we got ourselves a fight!"
