This must be satire
I'm glad you abandoned that SJW bullshit before I systematically dismantled every word.
Careful there buddy wouldn't want to get banned for disrespect again.
If challenging your fundamentally incorrect comparisons between the sweet science and America's socio-economic issues is disrespect then truly the world is lost.
It's not. Calling it 'SJW bullshit' after hearing one paragraph of someone's opinion, however, is.
Well that's what it was!
To get back to the important matters here, Conor did impressively better than I expected him to. As expected, Floyd, the master he is, gameplanned accordingly and despite his age secured his legacy. Fair play to both men, and as someone whose career is combat sports, I just hope Smurf's attitude doesn't reflect the future generations' as well.
I don't think that Tottot appreciates us spamming his thread. If you want to talk about it more in depth we can take it to a PM or another thread.
I voted 'no' because the 'no' button got lonely.
It is no different than watching an action movie and enjoying a fight scene in it really. We know it is either fake, or utter shit, but we enjoy it because it hits something in us. I mean, honestly, humans are just Chimps that invented language, I mean there is a 2% DNA difference between us and them, it isn't huge. We are all barbaric, we just found different ways to express it than hunting animals or slaughtering each other with stones. Now we hunt animals and slaughter each other with guns, nukes, etc.
Edit: Just read the rest of the thread
*Edit* Related note, I didn't watch but I could hear the people in my house watching it. Sounds like it was a decent fight, though I'm not knowledgeable in the sport.
What on earth is thread about? Talking about we watch it cause it's fake or shit or whatever. This is a fight between the greatest defensive boxer of all time and soon to be one of the greatest mix martial artists of all time. Absolutely Floyd did the fight for money, but he also saw it an as easy way to get 50-0. 50-0 looks a lot better on a T-Shirt than 49-0. Connor did it because he's trying to cement himself as one of the GOAT and what better to do that than knock out Floyd Mayweather? Not to mention, when you say only "2% different than chimps" in regards to dna, that percentage is more relative to about 35million+ differences, being small or distinct. So don't really understand your point about humans being animalistic that's why we watch it, I know plenty of -humans- who hate contact sport~
The fight was fantastic. Floyd cemented himself as the greatest defensive boxers of all time, un-defeated in over 20 years as a professional fighter. Connor shocked the world by landing more punches on him than -any- of Floyd's other opponents, including Manny Pacman Pacquiao. He proved to the cynical boxing fans and commentators that MMA is the real deal and in his debut he can go toe to toe against one of boxing's greatest. Granted, he did gas out but that's more to do with the genius of Floyd, rather than criticism of Connor.
Don't know why this thread has derailed into politics, and what not, it was a fantastic fight. The end~
