McGregor Set to Challenge Pay-Per-View Record

Tom Szczerbowski for USA TODAY Sports

Frampton believes McGregor, in the future, will continue to compete as a boxer - because there is far more money to be made than fighting again in the UFC. Congrats to Floyd on a well fought match.

It's unclear what the disagreement was about or why the men in attendance starting brawling, but one could guess it was over a disagreement with the 10th round ref stoppage of Irish UFC champion Conor McGregor.

Consumers were also invited to test their strength and train in an outside mini-gym. Stockton's favourite son inflicted McGregor with his first defeat inside the famed Octagon, though he avenged the loss by eking out a majority decision in August, last year. But McGregor's performance also won some applause, as he boxed better in his first boxing match as a pro than many thought he would.

Showtime executive vice president Stephen Espinoza tells the Los Angeles Times that the boxing match drew "in the mid-to-high 4 million pay-per view buys" in North America. "I rematched him at 170lbs, I beat him". Mayweather's Jr experience inside the boxing ring showed as he was able to manage his stamina better. From Muhammad Ali's biting poems to Mike Tyson's vicious bite of Evander Holyfield's ear in the ring, no fan ever really knows what to expect when they pay to watch a fight, and that might just be the reason they pay so much. Mayweather said after the fight that he had anticipated this and just let McGregor tire himself out.

It may be little surprise that the mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter has warm feelings for the boxer who helped him earn a minimum of US$30 million (S$41 million) from their bout, but the build-up had been stormy with the two exchanging unpalatable slurs.

McGregor, meanwhile, ventured into the boxing arena for the first time in his professional fighting career.

The comment was intended as a compliment - with McGregor praising Mayweather's attacking instincts - but Canelo said that he saw nothing which resembled a "Mexican style" in the veteran's tactical approach to the fight.

Michelle Waterson UFC Strawweight fighter (Ranked number 6) Whereas Ricky Hatton didn't give McGregor a chance, a lot of UFC fighters were more open-minded, with Nunes and Michelle Waterson being prime examples. The pair even had a run in during fight week.

Undefeated UFC star Justin Gaethje is saying sayonara to MMA after another dozen fights, tops. telling TMZ Sports the sport's "too brutal" to gun for 50-0 like Floyd Mayweather.
