Mike Tyson Says Conor McGregor 'Did Great' Against Floyd Mayweather

UFC president Dana White revealed that the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor bout over the weekend did a whopping 6.5 million pay-per-view buys, revealing the reported news during a casual conversation with Urijah Faber and Snoop Dogg Tuesday evening. It normally takes three or four years and over 18 fights to get to this level, but McGregor did it in his first fight.

Floyd Mayweather's victory over Conor McGregor spared Ladbrokes Coral a "bloody nose", the bookmaker revealed today.

"Floyd took him to school, he made him punch himself out and when he was exhausted he took him out".

Diaz made an appearance at Mayweather-McGregor in Las Vegas and greeted the former pound-for-pound boxing king in his locker room afterwards.

The undefeated boxer, who is well known for his mental warfare even when walking out to the ring for his fights, wore a ski mask over his face as he trotted out for his fight with McGregor. "This is fighting where you can only use your hands".

The footage shows McGregor's infamous "knockdown" of Malignaggi in the ring. I've never seen anybody else do it.

"I've done pads with a million and one people and nobody comes close to what he can do with those pads". It wasn't the case.

Asked if he had a message for McGregor, Lewis said: "Stay in your lane".

"Because you must realise, that I'm 40-years-old and I've been off nearly 800 days and he's active". While Showtime offered refunds for those unable to access the fight through its platform on Monday, the UFC was still largely silent on the matter. "Maybe he could come back from the dead, I don't know". "But what happened is what we thought would happen".

In his defense, it had been two years since he'd last fought so some ring rust was to be expected. Now I'm the 155-pound world champion, if he wants that fight, he must come down. "Listen, he got a big set of balls".

"He was just out of his depth". I'm not even the same Floyd Mayweather I was two years ago.

Hard to say which was more annoying, Pay-Per-View's hour-and-a-half long transmission problem that backed up the start of the fight or the whiny complaining of McGregor after the matchup was over. The UFC organizes the interim title fight, while its champion takes a break to fight by the boxing rules and promote the company and the sport of MMA. He's not a boxer. In the meantime, McGregor has claimed the lightweight championship.

He'd still make a lot more money than he would in the UFC. For Mayweather-McGregor to top that number by more than 1 million buys would be a huge success for everyone involved.

"These other fighters, these young lions, they are throwing a lot more combinations than I'm throwing", he said.

"I think he will face Paulie Malignaggi probably on St Patrick's Day in NY because it will be a mega event and probably make him somewhere in the region of $30million".
