Default Why it's NOT bad for boxing if McGregor wins

1. A McGregor win does not = MMA > boxing. Why not? Well McGregor is light years beyond the typical boxing standard seen in MMA. You've got heavyweights in 4oz gloves in those cages and even they can't come close to his 90% KO rate.

2. McGregor began his fighting career in boxing and is a student of the game (his coach says McGregor has for as long as they've been a team showed him video of boxers / fights / techniques) - He is NOT a wrestler or jiu jitsu expert that did some pad work.

MMA fans won't get to gloat should McGregor win, as huge portions of them resent how McGregor's success has been built on his boxing foundation and seeing his boxing handle the wrasslin from the likes of Chad Mendes and Eddie Alvarez.

McGregor is the closest thing we have to a boxer in MMA and his rise to the top is bothersome to many an MMA "purist"

3. McGregor's no nonsense "make it happen" stance with regard to matchmaking will see the best want to fight the best and challenge themselves. In the UFC Jon Jones is now finally prepared to challenge himself at heavyweight, calling out Brock Lesnar. Jones says this move out of his comfort zone was "McGregor inspired"

Anyone looking for the spotlight in the same sport as McGregor knows they must make big fights. We've already seen lomachenko rigondeaux hype picking up steam since McGregor mentioned them. He will be a catalyst for change, a welcome detour from the current and jaded record-padding, must-stay-undefeaded mindset.

So everyone needs to relax and understand that this isn't MMA > boxing and should McGregor do the impossible it will not only be not a disaster for boxing, but it might be just what boxing needs.

McGrgeor winning? We need to revive the PAC fans and bring back Fanquiaoism.

Unless of course it is them making these threads or UFC hopeful dorks

If McGregor wins it's good for all kinds of sh*t. Science Fiction is probably #1.

he will only want to fight the best for mega paydays...like the one he's getting in his professional debut. if he wins, i bet he prices himself out of a lot of fights

McGregor says he wants to fight Khabib after he fights Floyd.. so hes going back to MMA then retiring after that fight. thats my prediction now

hes a business man, it sounds like hes signing the last two fights of his career... big pay day with floyd, then he will capture the Russian market and then get his ass kicked by khabib and retire rich

so whether he destroys Floyd or not, we probably wont see any other boxer challenge him in the ring..he will probably just go out 1-0 and history will just see him as that one guy who had that x factor to cross sports and win... no one else will repeat it
