I hope Floyd does do it, even though it's unlikely, and gets punished.

MMA fighters have a longer sweet spot to shine in their careers. I can See Mayweather going straight MMA and doing well enough to get a title shot before he retires.

Hand rant: If Mayweather gets a good MMA trainer, who KNOW how to tape a hand he'll be fine. They do a much better job (on average) using the tape to protect hands in MMA today than they do in Boxing. A good tape man is one of those little things that makes a surprising difference in how landing a punch feels. I watch boxers and some MMA strikers and just can't believe the poor tape jobs some of them have onn their hands. If you're not setting it up properly to serve it's function, why do it at all?

How do you see this? MMA is a sport you don't simply pick up and become great at in the matter of two years. Mayweather is way behind everyone in the MMA world because he's starting too late. Striking in boxing and MMA is also quite different, through slight nuances that go unnoticed by the untrained eye.

I highly doubt Floyd would ever get a title shot unless he was fed nothing but strikers that would want to trade, until said title fight, in a poverty-row organization. Even if he got the shot, he'd most likely get pumped.


We're truly entering a phase in MMA now where other combat sport/general sport athletes are convinced that they can simply transition to the big leagues of MMA in the matter of 1-2 years. The only athletes I'd consider truly capable of making the transition are those whom have trained wrestling/BJJ/kickboxers since youth.

In short, athletes that think they can make the transition to MMA easily should look at what happens to guys like Johnny Morton and Francois Botha.

what you didnt mention brock lesner is a WRESTLER it was proven in the early ufc days that wrestlers and other grapplers beat stand up fighters any day. lesner has probly the most important factor of mma down wrestling. May weather knows how to punch and thats it. Honestly he stands a 0% chance of winning against a guy like sherk.

Saying Mayweather only knows how to punch is a pretty ignorant thing to say. The guy would be working with some of the top trainers in the country to round an MMA game. This isn't UFC 1 where everybody came in with what discipline they've worked on half their life. He will know what to work on, and you have to consider Mayweather is blessed with extreme athleticism, ability and talent. With a year of consistent training in kickboxing/muay thai, and wrestling/jiu jitsu, I believe he could do pretty well against some mid-level opponents. Don't get me wrong though, with all the shit he's talked about MMA and its fighters, I'd like to see him come in confident and then get smashed. Hopefully he goes through with it (unlikely) and earns some respect for the sport. I'm sure he talks so much crap about MMA because it is such a big threat to boxing, and that's pretty understandable. However, I really hope that he does this, and changes his mind about the sport. Honestly, I think that is one of the best things that could happen for MMA, and it would be nice to see some humility from Mayweather for a change.
