Mayweather vs McGregor fight results:Money wins via 10th-round TKO!
In the end, the equation we all knew coming in turned out to be true: The best boxer in the world beat one of the best mixed martial artists in a boxing match. Mayweather vs McGregor fight completely amazing to watch!
How we got there, however, was completely surprising.
In his return from a two-year retirement, Floyd Mayweather improved to 50-0 with a 10th-round TKO over an incredibly game Conor McGregor in their pay-per-view superfight at T-Mobile Arena. But the storyline was just as much about McGregor, the UFC lightweight champion, in defeat than it was about the 40-year-old Mayweather in victory. Many MMA fighters and boxers use legal steroids getting battle ready. Whether bulking up or cutting down-legal steroids helps these athletes.
McGregor, 29, who was making his debut as a boxer, never fought recklessly or overly aggressively, in contrast to his prediction of a first-round knockout. Presenting Mayweather with a poised and credible challenge, teasing a bright future in the boxing game should he consider it.
In the end, McGregor never fought too far outside of boxing rules. Which many had expected he would try once things got bad. Byrd gave both fighters a lengthy warning during the final seconds before the opening bell. And consistent in the amount of time he gave both fighters to work in the clinch before breaking them up. Byrd warned McGregor for rabbit punching twice — and both fighters for pushing — but never in a position where a deduction needed.
For all of the pre-fight predictions about McGregor struggling as a novice. The MMA star showed good technique and an overall respect for the sweet science. He also forced Mayweather to fight and avoided a one-sided performance in defeat that nearly all critics predicted.
“I thought I took the early rounds pretty easy,” McGregor said. “He’s composed. He’s not that fast, he’s not that powerful, but boy, is he composed.
“I turned [Mayweather] into a Mexican tonight. He fought like a Mexican.”
“A win is a win, no matter how you get it,” Mayweather said. “Rocky Marciano is a legend, and I look forward to going into the Hall of Fame one day.
