    Fell asleep while waiting for match. McGregor stood for 10 rounds. That's way more than what I expected.

    Mayweather just doesn't have it anymore, it's the right time for him to retire. As good as McGregor looked (relative to expectations), Mayweather looked flat, his footwork was off, his movement was off and he just didn't seem like the same Floyd. If he fought any of the top boxers today he would get embarrassed. Anyways, this was a circus and both Floyd and Conor are laughing all the way to the bank.

    Floyd was at it.

    Would not be surprised if he had money on late knock out.

    Yeah McGregor was decent, but he was never even close to anything here. He stood for as long as Mayweather let him. After round 8 Floyd slightly turned up the heat and McGregor went down pretty quickly there, without ever breaking a sweat. It was expected though, this is Floyds sport. It was like asking Messi to beat Serena Williams at Wimbledon.

    McGregor did land more shots than many boxing champions that faced Mayweather though. And it seemed like Mayweather was getting a bit frustrated in the first rounds.

    Stamina more than anything is what got Connor.

    Mayweather is clearly past his best and think reason he got hit more as he wasnt to fearful of what was coming and was cruising a bit.

    Dont think he was ever frustrated he just waited took it easy to see what Macgregor had and allowed him to gas himself.

    McGregor only landed a few soft hits, Mayweather just let him run low on stamina while playing and smiling, then finished him within the next 2 rounds. Floyd could've probably finished this within half the rounds had he wanted to take risks - he was in constant control after all - but that's not his style.
