After losing to Floyd Mayweather, Conor McGregor now targets whiskey market

Floyd Mayweather attempted to place a $400,000 bet on himself to defeat Conor McGregor, in the hours before Saturday's fight.

"Where were the final two rounds?" I am looking forward to grappling, I feel when I got his back, I got his back so many times, how many times was I at his back there.

McGregor came out aggressive, throwing several punches in the first three rounds.

One Twitter user wrote, "I'd like to see Mayweather vs. McGregor rematch in the Octagon".

Single Oliver, who has been to four out of McGregor's last five fights, then took a seat in the tenth row - near English football legend Vinnie Jones.

Floyd Mayweather showed why he's one of the greatest ever when he systematically took apart Conor McGregor in their megafight.

McGregor has previously told White that he'd like to fight again this year and he made passing reference Saturday night to a possible third battle against Nate Diaz. "People ask me what's next, I'm not quite sure. I was well dressed, so I just walked in with them, and there was so many of them that it wasn't a problem".

Earlier in the evening, the match had been delayed due to PPV issues.

Conor McGregor did not go down.

The aptly dubbed "Money Fight" came at an important time. I wanted to go out with a bang.

"I was walking around a bit and I noticed this ladder just lying there by a door, so I picked it up and walked in, no security pass or anything, just straight through this door". The Irishman's 111 landed punches were 30 more than Manny Pacquiao managed against Mayweather in their 2015 "Fight of the Century".

The UFC lightweight champion insisted that referee Robert Byrd was wrong to bring the contest to a close in round 10 and hand victory to the undefeated boxer. "He's not 50-0 for no reason". "I had a great career".

Fan Chris Keogh said even though he succumbed to the unbeaten boxer's brilliance in the 10th round, he wasn't left disappointed. "Any guy who calls me out, forget it!"

But he might have had a bigger headache from the action after the bout.

At the box office, the live-broadcast of the fight in theaters scored the third-best showing of the day behind The Hitman's Bodyguard ($3.9 million) and Annabelle: Creation ($2.8 million), according to comScore.

Official NSAC scores did have it rather lopsided for Mayweather at the time of the stoppage, with the Las Vegas native ahead via scores of 87-83, 89-82 and 89-81.
