The May-Mac Vivi/Depressed-us Special: Boxing in MMA

Zane Simon, Connor Ruebusch, and Phil Mackenzie take on Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor and take a look at some boxers who've tried their hand at MMA. This week we're watching KJ Noons vs. Ryan Couture, Mark Hunt vs. Yosuke Nishijima, Butterbean vs. Rob Broughton, Randy Couture vs. James Toney.

There’s no UFC this week, so we don’t exactly have a Vivisection prepared, but it’s also Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Conor McGregor fight week. We couldn’t just do nothing. What we have instead is a sort of hybrid MMA Depressed-us/Vivi show. Some analysis along with watching a bunch of boxer vs. MMA fighter matchups... in MMA that is.

This week we’re watching KJ Noons vs. Ryan Couture, Mark Hunt vs. Yosuke Nishijima, Butterbean vs. Rob Broughton, and Randy Couture vs. James Toney. To find the Noons/Couture fight on Fight Pass, search for Tarec Saffiedine, and scroll to the Strikeforce: Saffiedine vs. Marquardt event video. The fight starts around 1:22:42 left in the video (it counts down).
