Skip Bayless is one of the greatest hot-take artists in the entire world. Overall, that is what he has made his entire career off of. Although not everyone is a fan of this, there are certainly those who love Bayless and what he brings to the table at times. Sure, he can be annoying, but he knows how to be provocative and entertaining. Unfortunately, the future of Undisputed is now in jeopardy as Shannon Sharpe is gearing up to leave the show. Only time will tell who the replacement will be.

As for last night, the NBA Finals were on an off-night, which meant Skip didn't have much to watch. However, there was a fight going on between Floyd Mayweather and John Gotti III. As you probably know by now, that fight was an absolute disaster for a plethora of reasons. Mostly, it was because of the in-ring brawl that took place after the referee had waved it off. The whole thing was a debacle, and Skip seems to have an interesting take on it all.

Skip Bayless Hot Take

"The Floyd-Gotti "brawl" after my man Kenny Bayless stopped the "fight" was obviously scripted and staged," Skip Bayless explained. Overall, this is a pretty bold thing to say. This is especially true when you consider how Skip said this so matter-of-factly. However, this is most likely a hot take and opinion rather than a declarative statement. That said, the only people who know whether or not this was staged are Floyd's team and Gotti's team.

If this was, indeed, all staged, then it is easy to see why they would do it. Outside of this fight, very few people knew the fight was happening. Moreover, it seems to be dominating sports discourse this morning. Regardless, we will wait for Floyd Mayweather to comment on it all before going the Skip Bayless route with our commentary. Let us know what you think of Skip's statement, in the comments section down below. Additionally, stay tuned to HNHH for more news from around the sports world.
