Midnight Mania! Joe Rogan: McGregor would be a “god damn folk hero” for head-kicking Mayweather

Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

As soon as this nonsense, ridiculous, sport-crossing spectacle that is McGregor-Mayweather was officially booked, we entered the territory we had been flirting with for a while, a place where anyone and everyone is just saying whatever.

Apparently, that includes UFC color commentator Joe Rogan, who speculated what would happen if Conor McGregor became wildly irrational and just decided to kick Floyd in the head. Transcript via MMAFighting.com:

“[If McGregor kicked Mayweather], that would be f**ked up. There’s probably some stipulations in the contract that say, ‘you can’t get him in an armbar or choke him.’

“[But] could you imagine? He would be a god damn folk hero. If they got in close and Floyd was shucking and juking on the outside and he threw a jab to cover up a left high kick and that left high kick necks him? Just clang! And you see Floyd go limp – and he would go limp. He’s never been high kicked like that. Jesus, that would be crazy.”

Yeah, it would be crazy. Sure, this whole fight is insane. We are some alternate timeline where history has been bent by the power of McGregor to entertain us. There is a method to this madness, though, and the method involves making as much money as possible for all the parties involved. Heck, even Ice Cube is getting in on the money. And, as Dana specifically stated, any departure from the strict Queensbury rules of the bout will result in a huge financial penalty to McGregor. There would also be long-term consequences, too, if McGregor- or anyone else- ever wanted to enter the boxing ring again.

“Would it be worth it? It would but it would f**k everything up because no one would ever trust another fighter from MMA to ever fight a boxer in a boxing match again.

Now, it is tempting to speculate who would have the edge under a different ruleset. By far the most likely outcome from this fight is that McGregor is absolutely embarrassed in the ring, and that knowledge is bound to give boxing fans a sense of superiority. Under any other ruleset, though, McGregor would be the decided favorite. Even without takedowns, the addition of kicks would change the abacus here. However, this ‘fight’ will not truly be a fight. It will be a boxing match, one that favors Mayweather in a way even the odds don’t fully reflect.

And no amount of reaction training will close that gap.

It just goes on like this…

If there is anyone BJ Penn can beat in the UFC, it’s Dennis Siver.

A fight happening next Sunday….

Siver returns from 2-yr layoff, Penn winless since 2010.

I want to appreciate this combination but I’m more concerned with what Prince Smalls has going on here… what’s with that hair? Those shorts?
