Floyd Mayweather Reveals What He Said To Conor McGregor Between Rounds

Given how Mayweather fought and Conor's combat sports skills, he looked about how you'd expect him to look.

Following his KO win of UFC superstar Conor McGregor last weekend, fight legend Floyd Mayweather vowed to never return to the ring. Unfortunately, this confusion was fleeting as it did not take long before he was able to read through McGregor's tactics.

While multiple providers had issues providing access on fight night, fans who ordered the bout via UFC.TV seemed to have the most difficulty viewing the pay-per-view.

"100-percent. I am the 155-pound champion". I'll get up. Maybe next year I'll get you.' Ronaldo replied: 'I don't think so'.

"I'm 27 years old, in the prime of my life and one of the fastest fighters on the planet and he's right there with me keeping up with everything, at his age".

"So that's a fair trade".

Instead, Conor McGregor went on to defeat lightweight titleholder Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 to become the first fighter to hold two UFC belts at the same time. Floyd knew exactly what he was doing in this fight.

Colquhoun said one thing that annoys MMA fighters is the sport being confused with kickboxing. Congrats to Floyd on a well fought match.

To put that number into perspective, the Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao fight in 2015 had a then-record of 4.6 million buys, meaning that Mayweather's unique clash with McGregor crushed that by almost two million.

And now that "Money" has retired, appropriately on top of the financial rankings, McGregor will fancy taking top spot in the coming years.

But Mayweather was dominant in the second half of the fight, landing 142 punches to McGregor's 69.

In the past, Conor McGregor has tried to use his stardom to dictate UFC's decisions and he was quite successful in most of these negotiations.

What's next for the Irishman could well be giving many fans what they want by offering Diaz a rubber match.

A lightweight title defence makes sense.

"Conor McGregor is a hell of a fighter and I want to see him continue to stay in the UFC and do what he do best", he said.

That includes Mike Tyson, who today graded McGregor's performance an "A" for the manner in which he handled himself against Mayweather with no professional boxing experience, while talking to Luke Thomas on SiriusXM.
