Las Vegas, NV – Following months of promo, undefeated world champion boxer Floyd “Money” Mayweather and UFC Lightweight champion Conor McGregor finally jumped in the ring on Saturday night (August 26) at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
After a brief delay due to unforeseen production issues, the first round eventually kicked off shortly after midnight EST.
McGregor hung in for 10 exhaustive rounds, but Mayweather emerged victorious with a technical K.O. after the referee stepped in to stop the savage beating.
Mayweather’s record is now 50-0.
