Mayweather chooses 'right dance partner' for final fight

It's safe to say that mixed martial arts (MMA) has grown exponentially in Chennai, over the past two years.

The most intriguing part was whether Mayweather or McGregor's unwavering confidence would actually be their Achilles Heel. Floyd "Money" Mayweather is now 50-0 after beating Connor McGregor in 10 rounds of their super fight.

"I wanted to fight one more time, I was being greedy".

The sisters also shared their own family photos on Instagram and proclaimed their allegiance to Team McGregor.

Meanwhile, McGregor said he would take time to consider his "many options" after his excursion into boxing ended in defeat to Mayweather. I don't want to have my flag inside of your truck like this.' I said, 'Man, I'm not anxious about that.' He's saying, 'You never know if you ever need someone, so...' -- I already knew where he was going with it.

Earlier this week in a video posted by UFC Hall of Famer Urijah Faber, it was UFC president Dana White who claimed that the card sold a whopping 6.5 million pay-per-views, but it's entirely possibly he was referencing the total number of sales worldwide.

McGregor claimed fatigue was the reason his legs were struggling to keep him upright after almost half-an-hour in the ring.

"The guy has a problem", UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping said on his Believe You Me podcast.

Conor McGregor plans to pursue a career in both professional MMA and boxing, whereas Floyd Mayweather has retired from the sport of pro-boxing.

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.

"It's still unusual to see how many people don't seem to get what they watched last Saturday night".

The former women's champion doesn't have a fight scheduled at the moment, but she has expressed interest in fighting UFC Women's Featherweight Champion Cyborg.

However, McGregor has overtaken Cristiano Ronaldo in Forbes' latest rich list for athletes after pocketing nearly £80m (€86.1m, $103.6m) following his bout with Mayweather.

LeBron: "You gotta respect him though because he ain't no boxer".

"I can't even talk about what happened, because I didn't watch the fight".

The question of Mayweather being granted permission to enter Australia was put to Mr Dutton's office last night with the boxing legend's chances not looking good.

By batting Mayweather with some hammer fists atop the head and holding him a few times, McGregor brought some UFC flavor to the bout without any points being deducted by referee Robert Byrd.

Keith O'Loughlin, executive vice-president at OpenBet, said: "OpenBet proved again that the platform we offer to operators can scale to cover very significant spikes of business".
