McGregor & Mayweather the new Muhammad Ali & Antonio Inoki?

With the hype of a McGregor vs Mayweather match up in full swing, may it be contested under boxing, mma or some hybrid boxing/mma rules lets not forget the time Muhammad Ali took on Antonio Inoki in a special rules mma fight.

At the time Ali was the WBC/WBA Heavyweight Champion and Inoki was the NWF  Heavyweight Champion. The two met at the Nippon Budokan arena in Tokyo on June 26, 1976, needless to say it was a sceptical with many boxing writers and fans claiming it as one of the most embarrassing moments in Ali’s career.

With history having a tendency of repeating itself do you think a matchup between McGregor and Mayweather will eventually come to fruition and if so who’s reputation can tarnished the most with a loss?
