遂にを100回言うぐらい待った世紀の一戦。


最後の記者会見。挑発合戦と思いきや、最後にはGood Luck言い合い。


さあ、いよいよ。


すごい気持ちわかる見方する大沢ケンジさん。


盛り上がる現地

さあ、いよいよ来ました。

フロイド・メイウェザーJr. vs. コナー・マクレガー

何より感動したのが、マクレガーのコール時に掲げられた2個のUFCチャンピオンベルト。昔はプロレスラーがやろうとしていた、近年はMMA選手がやろうとしていた、格闘技界最高峰の位置につけるボクシングのトップスーパースターを相手にジャンル背負って挑む姿。

最高

始まりました。
大方の予想通りマクレガーが先手、見るメイウェザー。リーチと体格差に勝るマクレガーがコンビネーションで追い詰め、出て来たらカウンターを合わせ、かなり調子良さそう。そして左ストレートに次ぐ得意の左アッパーがヒット!


しかし実際このアッパーもストレートもフックもジャブも全てよく見て分析されていたマクレガーは、ラウンド進むにつれ手がなくなり、それに合わせ出てくるメイウェザーのボディを受けスタミナ消費、打ち合いで盛り上げるものの、何年ぶりかに見るガンガン攻めるメイウェザーのラッシュを受けふらつき、10Rとうとうレフェリーに止められてしまいました。


プロの人たちが言うように、まさに夢の空間、夢の時間でした。
そして試合後会見では爽やかに称え合う2人。マクレガーの飲んでるウィスキー欲しい!


メイウェザーはこれで50戦50勝。


マクレガーは長文で。

Just coming back around after a whirlwind couple of days. Thank you to all the fans for the support of the fight and the event! Without your support we as fighters are nothing so I thank you all! Thank you to my team of coaches and training partners! I had an amazing team and It truly was an amazing and enjoyable camp, and honestly I feel with just a little change in certain areas of the prep, we could have built the engine for 12 full rounds under stress, and got the better result on the night. Getting to 12 rounds alone in practice was always the challenge in this camp. We started slowly getting to the 12 and decreasing the stress in the rounds the closer it got to 12. I think for the time we had, 10 weeks in camp, it had to be done this way. If I began with a loaded 12 rounds under much stress I would have only hit a brick wall and lost progress as a result and potentially not made the fight. A little more time and we could have made the 12 cleanly, while under more stress, and made it thru the later rounds in the actual fight. I feel every decision we made at each given time was the correct decision, and I am proud of everyone of my team for what we done in the short time that we done it. 30 minutes was the longest I have fought in a ring or cage or anywhere. Surpassing my previous time of 25 minutes. I am happy for the experience and happy to take all these great lessons with me and implement them into my camp going forward. Another day another lesson! Congrats to Floyd on a well fought match. Very experienced and methodical in his work. I wish him well in retirement. He is a heck of a boxer. His experience, his patience and his endurance won him this fight hands down. I always told him he was not a fighter but a boxer. But sharing the ring with him he is certainly a solid fighter. Strong in the clinch. Great understanding of frames and head position. He has some very strong tools he could bring into an MMA game for sure. Here is a toast of whiskey to everyone involved in this event and everyone who enjoyed it! Thank you to you all! Onto the next one!

I never lose. Either I win or learn.
私は決して負けない。勝つか、学ぶかだ。


いい時代に格闘技好きでよかった。
