Conor won't show up.   He may be there but in body only.

But he got the win he wanted - a giant payday.

Bet on the boxer in a boxing match and the MMA fighter in the cage.

You're spot on, Bob! The payday is what counts! As an aside, isn't it kind of embarrassing when a 27 year old gasses against a 40 year old? MMA guys, stop flipping tires, and start traing "cardio"

No. No matter how Conor conditioned he was going to gas. It was his first ever boxing match and he was going against possibly the best conditioned boxer in professional boxing history, in a scheduled 12-round fight. Different sports require different types of conditioning that can take years of conditioning specific muscles to peak.

A lot of the so-called conditioning issues also have to do with technique. If your technique is bad you're going to be inefficient as gas sooner. Conor isn't an efficient boxer. He looked very stiff to me.

You're correct in everything you say, he is very inefficient, he stays tense. He does not husband his physical resources well.

That's why boxing is called the sweet science.  There is a lot more to it than just beating on someone. 

I guess it was a good show.  But both are multimulti millionaires now so they are the ones laughing.

Good points, Art! I'm just at a loss as to how people don't embrace Boxing Fundamentals 101. I guess they're putting it all together, just really slow. I also wonder how beneficial weight cutting and rehydration is. From the outside looking in, it looks like Conor would of benefited from more training (skills) and less lifting (stop with the tires).

McGregor is a juicer who probably weighed 15 lbs. more.
If every black male 18-35 applied for a conceal & carry permit, and then joined the NRA in one day; there would be gun control laws in a second.
