    oscar is going to whoop his ass severely.
    Idk if it's TRT Vitor he may hurt Oscar lol.

    I told that dude, thanks for posting a link. I just don't like it, if this is a sanctioned bout it needs to be three minute rounds. This isn't womens boxing, if they can't compete in three minute rounds then this should stay an exhibition.

    I am telling you it's gonna be 2 minute rounds. Do a little research outside of boxingscene who didn't give the full scope. It's gonna be eight two minute rounds at 180lbs.

    2 minute rounds? Is Oscar officially transitioning or something? If this is an actual pro fight should be 3 mins.

    I said McGregor's strike speed is WAY faster than anything Vitor threw.

    The standards were lower back when Vitor was fighting. So "fast" back then, hell, Darnell Boone was faster than that.
    Vitor didn't fight in the UFC all that long ago. The article that I specifically found was from 2012. I would expect McGregor to be faster considering his largest weight class was still one below Vitors smallest. You must be remembering wrong or something. Vitor could put his hands together quite quickly for a 205 and 185lber. Not even going to address that Darnell Boone nonsense haha!

    Dude...Oscar's claim to fame was when he was young and had the ability to make light weights where he could out-size very small guys and had an advantage. Belfort is the guy now fighting as light as he ever has (something Oscar could never dream of doing) and Oscar is just a fat old sedentary pumpkin face. Where you one of those guys who thought Chavez Jr was going to KO Silva?

    As for the fast hands thing, it took me about 5 seconds to Google an article crediting him with having among the fastest hands in the UFC. (That was back when he was actually in the UFC obviously)

    If you're argument is that all MMA fighters are "slow" compared to boxers then what you are actually referring to is efficiency of technique not actual handspeed.
    Seems to be you who needs to check your "understanding" lol
