RE: Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor is August 26th 2017
Paulie rigged the game on this one

First he comes in as a paid sparring partner and then he will be ringside calling the fight. Who knows what kind of deal he had in place with Mayweather.

Conflict of interest? maybe...brillant yep

Well one does not earn over $1billion dollars in the boxing ring by being dumb.

I feel you, but that doesn't make sense for a few reasons:

Why would Mayweather throw away his 49-0 record? That doesn't add up for me. He's 1 match away from beating the Legendary Rocky Marciano's record. There is no way he is going to throw a fight unless someone offered him 1 billion dollars or something and even then he's throwing away a unique opportunity that would put him above everyone else in the boxing hall of fame for hundreds of years.

The only reason McGregor took the fight is that he is getting 100M to get beat up for 6-12 rounds and walk away from it and increase his net worth by 3x. Nobody in their right mind would walk away from that.

The idea Floyd would throw the fight is absurd. As well as the reasons mentioned, his legacy, his record, his dignity...he's essentially representing boxing as a sport. Even if he is 40, if McGregor goes the distance with someone that good it does the sport down—unless it's an absolutely, unquestionably brilliant, one sided masterclass like Joe Calzaghe vs. Jeff Lacy.

The Paulie thing is funny. How much truth to it there is, and how much it is just Floyd capitalising on a situation to unsettle McGregor, I don't know. Either way, broken record that I am, you don't get to where Floyd is by being dumb, and without having some *seriously* shrewd people around you. Floyd isn't broke, and he isn't stupid.

Floyd would want several hundred million extra to throw the fight and his perfect record. Vegas casinos have only taken a couple $1 million bets, there's no way there'd be enough betting action to get Floyd to throw it. His payday from PPV alone will be many times the betting amounts.

Fixing mainly happens in women's tennis and lesser soccer leagues where 100k-300k is a lot of money to them and they will fix a game for it.

After this, Floyd will go in the octagon for 15 minutes and collect another $150 mill.

Floyd won't go into the octagon under MMA rules. Not at his age. Well, I'd be *incredibly* surprised. He's hard as nails, but would get destroyed, knows it, and he wouldn't want that to happen due to his ego.

This move is straight from the wrestling playbook. Great job! If Mayweather walks out with Nate Diaz and a leprechaun --- that's checkmate.

I can't imagine Mayweather throwing this fight or any fight. I think he's going to try and DESTROY/EMBARRASS McGregor on Saturday. McGregor will pay for that "You can't read" comment. I'm a huge McGregor fan but this won't be pretty. NO FIX IN THIS FIGHT.

One more thing, the stream2watch.cc to watch for free. If someone knows another site, let us know.

There is a lot of money being paid out for this spectacle, which means they will take massive receipts from PPV across the world.

Sadly, it is all part of the race narrative that is going on today. Some people love this stuff and several of my friends have made comments, about seeing Connor knock Floyd out cold.

Saturday they make get their wish.

Would never happen.

The UFC does not share PPV revenues anywhere close to what Floyd would demand with any UFC fighter in history. They pay fighters salaries and the fighters have to get endorsement money. Title defenders get a tiny cut of PPV in the form of a salary fight bonus. If you get submission or KO of the night, you can get another small bonus.

Tillman and his brother would not share past 5%, that's how greedy they were. That's why Fedor never got to fight in the UFC even for one superfight match.

The new management? I doubt they would discuss past 20%. The Money Team TMT, would not consider anything under 50% most likely.

Also, the UFC is absolute shite for fight promotions compared to Bob Arum, Floyd, etc. The small fight purses are the biggest reason why the UFC won't grow much more than it has in the past.

With all due respect, I think you're going into conspiracy land with that bit.

McGregor has a massive fan base. The second he started saber rattling for this fight Mayweather's camp saw massive $$$ to be made by combining Mayweather's fan base and McGregor's fan base. This is going to make sports history no matter who wins.

There is no reason for Floyd to take a dive.

Floyd taking a dive would literally be him destroying everything he built up over the past 40 years.

Tinfoilhat why do you think all sports are rigged?

I'll bite. I like the rest of your post, but the first line is just, let's say, silly. On what basis do you say "all sports are fixed"?

I feel like an SJW type discussion is coming, where terms have been jumbled a ton over time with all these conspiracy theorists, so please define "fixed", which may be the problem here.

Get your passport ready!

I was wondering what would stop Mayweather from tossing a mil to Paulie to get the scoop. Then I realized that even the sparring drama was all fake. With media analytics its hard to not do.

I bet there's a secret contract saying McGregor offers to bet the purse and Mayweather turns him down. Otherwise, there's no way McGregor offers to bet 100MM on the fight and equally no chance that Mayweather turns him down.

Is everyone just betting on an outright win for Mayweather? Anyone betting on rounds also? Looking at Peregrine, ProGambler and Mr. Accuride.

Missed out on -324 and now its at -425 on bet365, still not bad.

50% of total bet on outright win right now. Considering another 30% at -425. Otherwise I'm holding the remaining amount in hopes of heavy movement towards McGregor in the opening rounds.

It's possible, but not entirely plausible given how much Floyd looks up to Marciano and wants to break his record for the most consecutive wins in boxing history.

If Floyd wasn't undefeated I'd buy that line of thinking, but with a perfect record on the line, I'm not sure he'd be willing to lose to an amateur like that.

Mayweather said he bet a few million on himself as well, so i'm still not buying that he would take a dive, I don't think his ego wouldn't allow it. But for him it is all about the money, so who knows, I wouldn't be surprised by any shenanigans.

Vegas Nightmare: McGregor Knock Out Would Be "Single Biggest Loss In History Of Sports Betting"

This weekend’s long-awaited fight between undefeated boxer Floyd “Money” Mayweather and Ultimate Fighting Championship star Conor McGregor is making bookies nervous.

After oddsmakers failed to anticipate that the UK would vote for Brexit, and that President Donald Trump would manage an upset victory in November's US election, Las Vegas's gambling professionals are afraid that McGregor could pull off an upset of his own. And thanks to a flood of last minute bets, bookmakers are facing historic losses - possibly the largest ever - if the Irish mixed-martial artist comes away with the "W," according to CBC Sports.

That's because McGregor fans have flooded bookmakers with small bets that will pay off heavily if he wins, and even more so if he does it early, or by knocking out his opponent. One oddsmaker said the betting slips received by his company were 18-1 in McGregor’s favor thanks to a flood of $100 bets.

“McGregor fans have flooded sports books with $100 bills backing the mixed martial arts fighter, and even a late surge of money on Mayweather might not be enough to balance the books.

"I'm OK now," said William Hill oddsmaker Nick Bogdanovich. "But you might want to have a heart monitor on me when the bell rings and Conor starts throwing wild lefts.

Bogdanovich said his chain of sports books will suffer multimillion dollar losses — their worst ever — should McGregor win the fight in any fashion. If he wins early as he has promised, the losses would be even worse.

The big bettors are putting their money on Mayweather, who is a 49-0 as a pro. But so many McGregor fans are betting small amounts that the betting slips at William Hill were 18-1 in the Irish fighter's favour.”

However, the majority in a recent YouGov poll believe Mayweather is most likely to triumph...

[Image: chartoftheday_10818_most_people_think_ma...egor_n.jpg]

There are some interesting parallels between this weekend's fight and November's election. According to one survey, 51% of McGregor fans identified as Trump supports, while 61% of Mayweather fans identified as Clinton supporters.

[Image: 2017.08.25mayweatherthree_2_0.JPG]

Oddsmakers have been steadily lowering McGregor’s chances of victory as training videos emerged that showed McGregor looking sluggish and clumsy. But thanks to an influx of bets from “regular Joes,” the money riding on a McGregor victory has steadily increased.

"This isn't professional money, just the regular Joe," Bogdanovich said. "The butcher and the barber are putting their $100 US on McGregor and it's added up."

The action is reflected in the odds, which bookmakers adjust either way as money comes in on the two fighters. Bookmakers have been lowering the odds steadily since the fight was announced, but even that hasn't stopped the deluge of McGregor bets.”

[Image: 2017.08.25mayweather_0.JPG]

While Mayweather has a perfect track record and a lifetime of boxing experience in his favor, McGregor fans are hoping that his age advantage – McGregor is 12 years younger than Mayweather – and longer reach could be enough to help the Irish mixed martial artist clinch a victory.

Here’s a breakdown of both fighter’s stats, courtesy of the Bleacher Report.

[Image: 2017.08.25mayweathertwo_0.JPG]

Bettors hoping for an upset might have another reason to dream big. According to the New York Post, it could be in Mayweather’s financial best interest to lose Saturday’s fight. If Mayweather wins, he retires undefeated. But if McGregor pulls off the upset, it increases the likelihood of a rematch – and another $200 million payday to tide Mayweather over in retirement.

"“Some people around him are hoping Floyd puts on a good fight, but that he goes down,” a marketing pro headed to Las Vegas told us. “If McGregor loses, no one wants to see Floyd kick his ass again. If Floyd wins, there may not be a second fight to get another $200 million. If he loses, he’s guaranteed another fight, another payday.”

Mayweather’s money troubles, including his more than $20 million IRS lien, have been widely publicized. And while it’s been said that Mayweather would rather die than lose, a nine-figure payday could go a long way toward soothing the boxer’s bruised ego.

Like they say, anything's possible in the ring.
