McGregor and his family.
McGregor and Diaz are 1-1 following their UFC 196 and 202 bouts.
He was momentarily cheered up by his newborn son Conor Jr, but looked visibly devastated by the defeat that many pundits predicted. It is said to have broken the all-time PPV sales record and McGregor is expected to take home atleast $100 million, despite the loss. But many wonder if he will follow the money and stick to boxing.
Although McGregor does not have the traditional physique of a wrestler, neither did Floyd Mayweather when he had a shockingly entertaining match with The Big Show at Wrestlemania in 2008.
McGregor said that fighting for 30 minutes had been a challenge as MMA fights last a maximum of 25 minutes.
"It might not be this year or the year after that because there's a lot of money that you got to spend to get him in there", Jericho said. In 2015 Mayweather was denied entry to Australia by former Assistant Immigration Minister Michaelia Cash. He figured out McGregor in the early rounds, before producing a virtuous performance.
The bout was billed as the "Money Fight", given the incredible amounts at stake.
Mayweather, on the other hand, remains undefeated and can enjoy the reported $234 million paycheck he received just to fight one last time. Prior to fighting Mayweather, Pacquiao stressed that he'd love to fight McGregor if he and Floyd couldn't agree on terms. However as the fight progressed, Mayweather began to impose his will and break down the waning MMA Champion. He played basketball for ten years and he was also a coach for two.
"Byrd did an excellent job by stopping the fight when he did, as I'm certain the ringside physician and all members of the Association of Ringside Physicians would agree". The octagon is McGregor's, but together, they exceeded expectations and showed the resilience to fight.
Malignaggi was hired by McGregor to serve as a sparring partner.
According to the report, Dee Devlin has been a major factor in Conor McGregor's success, and he credits her for encouraging him to stick with his craft during the challenging moments of his career.
He believed it would have been a closer fight had he prepared a little differently, after losing via technical knockout in the 10th round.
