Mcgregor hurt May with a body shot and the McG was in big trouble not protecting his face and no legs. McG in trouble now.

What a fucking farce. Mayweather was barely trying. Thank god I didn't pay a dime for that garbage.

Yep.....It looked like a training sparring match with a rookie (which is what McGregor was)

Gotta give it to Mayweather. He knows how to make the money with very little risk.

All these guys have to show for this is 100 million for Mayweather. 30 million for McGregor.

Mcgregor's only chance was a haymaker early.

He was in shape, and it was McGregor who ran out of gas (but he probably threw 4X as many punches).

Other than that, I'd wonder how hard Mayweather trained and how seriously he took this. You can say McGregor was better than you expected, but nobody watched that and said he looked like he belonged in a pro ring.

Well that was a better fight than I expected but anyone who pays attention to boxing/Mayweather could've seen that outcome a mile away.

I'm sure Mayweather just waited for him to run out of gas to make it easy. He wasn't doing anything but using up energy. It's not like he was hitting Mayweather clean. I'd love to see Mayweather lose but this was a farce. McGregor is a terrible boxer. Mayweather just carried him until he was spent and then put him away. He's smart and experienced. Why take a risk? He knew just how to dismantle McGregor without much effort. I didn't think it was entertaining at all. I just kept watching hoping McGregor would tackle him or do something funny. So happy I didn't give them a dime of my money.

We're all suckers ...

I'm not saying it was fixed, but if two guys wanted to get a huge payday that's exactly how they would script it. Floyd let McGregor win the early rounds to make it seem like a legit fight. Middle rounds stay close, sway towards Mayweather. Late rounds, Mayweather takes over.

Early stoppage by the ref, who was obviously in Mayweathers camp all along. The judges giving Mayweather two of the first three rounds despite him not even throwing punches was bullshit. Both fighters smiling and happy without taking much damage at the end of the fight.

Whatever. The only thing that came out of this was legitimizing McGregor and MMA.

The ref had to have warned McGregor at least 6 times about blows to the back of the head....never took a point.

That's because this was a farce and the general public morons ate it up.

So after PPV is tabbed up, 100 million and 30 million will go to 300 million and 100 million respectively for Mayweather and McGregor. Not a bad day's work.

Just think, tonight some people paid $70 for preseason Steelers tickets plus $50 to park and $30 for a hotdog and a couple beers. So who is the sucker?
