Will Floyd Mayweather survive an MMA fight?
No one wants to give Floyd Mayweather any credit. He already beat one of the most dangerous fighters in MMA, and still, people act like he would be murdered if he fought in mixed martial arts. Mayweather is still one of the best defensive fighters in the world, and that is going to translate in the MMA ring.
You can't hurt what you can't hit. Mayweather could evade any shot thrown at him. His quick hands could also put pinpoint punches on his opponents that could do real damage. Any other holes in his game he can easily pick up. Like McGregor said, "precision beats power and timing beats speed." Mayweather has those skills.
Anybody who thinks Mayweather can cross over in MMA needs to get their head checked. It is a completely different sport with too many disciplines to defend. It doesn't matter how good Mayweather is at boxing. He can't dodge his way to a victory in MMA. Mayweather would get destroyed if he tried to cross over.
The 50-0 prizefighter has no answer for a muay thai fighter who uses eight strike tools instead of two. A wrestler would toss around Mayweather like a ragdoll. Karate masters would have their way as well.
Mayweather should stick to boxing because he is going to get killed in MMA.
