    Damn. Were they even in the same weight class? Nasukawa looks at least 15 pounds lighter.

    Nah. Floyd came in as a full blown welter (147) and Tenshin was around 122 (super bantam)

    Farce all around.

    But with the money Floyd made, this is likely the beginning of these outrageous exhibitions

    To me, a lot of the motivation behind this is the idea that if a MMA fighter can hang with the greatest boxer of our generation, then it will prove that MMA is obviously better than boxing.

    Had Tenshin been able to hold his own against Floyd, it would have established his name on a wide level for the next decade.

    The two are not mutually exclusive.

    Not a good look for MMA/Kickboxer guy either way. Floyd carried McGregor for 10 rounds. He pounded this guy and likely destroyed his career/aura. Kid was crying in the ring afterwords.

    Will be in Vegas this weekend, but not for the fight, unless my son's soccer team gets in a brawl with some other team.
