Isn't really fair on McGregor. A pure boxing match puts him at a hilariously obvious disadvantage.

A best of three series would of been better.
1st match, a boxing match
2nd match, an MMA match
3rd match, a knife fight to the death.

I get your only joking, but McGregor is purely in this for the payday. He couldnt dream of making this kind of money in the UFC. UFC take a cut of McGregors earnings from this fight too, which is why their allowing it to happen.

Oh yeah, I figured that. But I reckon a best of three series culminating into a knife fight to the death would make a bit more money I reckon.

Yep - and McGregor has been quite vocal about earning more for a while now.

2 points i originally thought but round 9 probably should have gone to manny 10-8 he was that dominant so a 3 point margin imo.

Great result for Horne & Aussie boxing (congrats Jeff) but I can understand people saying PAC-man got rorted based off punches, jabs thrown & connecting etc.

I don't see the harm in this. But it does set a precedent. I know they say they won't take the belt off Horn if the new scores show Pacman winning easily, but it will be interesting to see what the reaction will be.
