It’s all over. Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Lightweight champion Conor McGregor took it to undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. last night (Sat., Aug. 26, 2017) live on Showtime pay-per-view (PPV) from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The mixed martial arts (MMA) superstar ended up losing via technical knockout in Round 10, but landed huge shots along the way and forced “Money” to exchange on more than one occasion, proving many doubters wrong in the process.
As expected, the combat sports community was on full alert for the highly-anticipated “Money Fight.” Here is just some of the priceless reaction caught on Twitter after Mayweather put a stop to “Notorious” last night in Sin City:
