The “boxing” match between Floyd Mayweather and UFC star Conor McGregor ended as expected by most with a 10th round stoppage. While fight fans thought McGregor would be a challenge for the unbeaten pugilist, Mayweather gave the game Irishman a pounding before the referee hopped in to stop the carnage.
With all the hype leading up to the event, most expected Mayweather to fight another of his careful, defensive-minded matches. However, the now 50-0 Money Team boss took the fight to McGregor’s chest and waited until he tired his opponent out before unleashing his hand speed and accuracy. On unofficial score cards, McGregor was in tight competition with Mayweather but it was clear as the rounds went on that stamina favored the veteran boxer.

Floyd won as I expected, but the reality is Conor could've seriously been hurt and it seems no one cared about that… #MayweathervMcgregor

I watched the fight for free looking through a window outside of a bar and I feel like I paid too much. #MayweathervMcgregor
