Reactions from the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight

McGregor, however, is a different story. "The Notorious" one was stopped by a flurry of Mayweather punches at 1:05 of the 10th round on August 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

"I'm glad that so many people bought the fight so they can see what boxing is all about, and what boxing is all about is September 16th with Canelo and Triple G", De La Hoya said.

INDEPENDENT councillor Jolene Bunting says she was contacted by an anonymous caller who threatened to shoot her less than 24 hours after posting about MMA champion Conor McGregor.

Apparently, watching the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight was a big draw on the illegal streaming circuit, too.

"Hopefully I can find the next Floyd Mayweather".

These numbers go to show the effect a major fight can have in all aspects of Las Vegas' economy.

The stream was said to feature "grainy video, error screens, buffer events, and stalls", as one boxing fan told Cullins. Mayweather wasn't controlling the pace of the match, which seemed odd considering that is typically the norm for him.

"Then a few weeks later he posted a gold statue in a shop of a jaguar or something and said "make my statue this colour" - so I was kinda like OK".

Yet the UFC also just made untold millions from McGregor's dalliance with boxing while he was under contract.

"Especially with our first fight".

Mayweather, who announced his retirement after improving to 50-0, added: "He's a lot better than I thought he'd be".

Even if he splurges on all his favourite clothing brands and gets himself a new closet, he will still have quite some change left. Only one fight - Alvarez vs. Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. last May - has been able to top 1 million pay-per-view buys since Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao stunk it up in their record-selling 4.6-million-buy bout in May 2015.

Before the fight was official, Mayweather had called the former UFC lightweight title contender and promised that he was going to finish off McGregor after Diaz choked him out a year ago.

"I would rather he did not (box again)", White said.

Saturday night, Sewell Hall held a watch party for the fight open for all Lipscomb students to view the historic event. I love a good fight and tonight was a good fight.

"They didn't let me bet $400,000".
