There are few fights that have the ‘it’ factor nowadays. Few fights where you go to sit down to watch them and they feel different. In MMA that’s become more and more rare with the stars of the sport losing their battle with father time. It’s a sad state that we live in, knowing that the inevitable will come to all these fighters that we cheer for. That’s not to say that there aren’t excellent fights, quite the opposite actually. The past year In boxing and the past month in MMA has been fantastic but I think it’s fair to say that some of these fights lack star power. Especially on the MMA side of the court.
One fighter that doesn’t lack star power or the ‘it’ factor when it comes to his fights is Floyd Mayweather. Each fight he has automatically becomes the biggest fight of the year because of how much is riding on it.
Just seeing him train feels different than any other fighter and seeing him train is different because simply put, he’s better than everyone else.
