GREG COTE'S RANDOM EVIDENCE BLOG: MIAMI. SPORTS. AND BEYOND.
If you're like me, you don't particularly like Floyd Mayweather Jr. or Conor McGregor, who'll be in a boxing ring this Saturday night in Las Vegas for their much ballyhooed boxing/UFC hybrid expected to break pay-per-view records. You'd probably like it if they could both lose. But curiosity and hype will have you watching, and human nature says you'll pick a side. You'll have a rooting interest, even if it's driven by rooting against somebody.

Vote thge first with heart, the other with head, and check back often to monitor evolving results.
