I'd say losing on a deliberate DQ would be far worse all round than taking a beating.  In a fight that could be of the magnitude (however ridiculous it is) of this, it would be one of the biggest quit jobs of all time to go out like that.

 
His fans who hang off his every word like he's the only person to ever swear would probably find it hilarious although i think it more likely he'd throw a kick to get DQ'd or something once he realises he's in over his head hands only.

I really do see that as a realistic possibility, he'll resort to some UFC shit if/when he starts getting tanked and can do sweet fa about it. I think the UFC fans would lap that up and see it as some kind of moral victory. The only way I see that kind of thing being completely ruled out is if its written into the contract that if McGregor pulls a stunt like that he won't get paid.

The thing is though about this fight is that it's a complete circus act as it is, so a circus ending would not surprise me in the slightest, and no-one can really complain if it does, because how the hell is a man allowed to make his pro boxing debut against arguably the best fighter of the last quarter of a century? The man McGregor is going to "fight" like the boxing version of the 1980's Wimbledon football team (i.e. the crazy gang). Spoil, spoil, spoil, bend the rules as far in his favour as he can (i.e. grabbing, holding etc) and if he gets DQ'd he'll just turn around and say "boxing is for pussies" etc

The thing is that Mayweather is holding all the cards for this fight so he will probably get Joe Cortez out of retirement to referee it so that McGregor won't even be able to look at him in a way that he doesn't like, let alone get in close and rough him up.

The headlines are:

1. McGregor wants to get paid
2. McGregor will get pasted
3. Thus McGregor wants more of his slice than Dana is allowing

The end.

I have a feeling that Mayweather will really get under McGregors skin during the build up and throughout the fight... encouraging him to do something illegal so that the DQ will result in mayweather walking away with 100% of the purse... making easy money a damn sight even easier.

The ref (who ever it is) will be focused on McGregor and not Mayweather... and will be overly strict to the novice... he is going to look embarrassingly amateurish in there. Could be Cringey to watch as mayweather dances around him.
