You already know by now that Floyd Mayweather defeated Conor McGregor by TKO in the 10th-round Saturday night in “The Money Fight.”
Even if you were on an expedition in Antarctica without any Internet or cell service, you know; a whale probably swam up to you with the fight results.

We’re not going to get into how McGregor looked throughout the bout or if the fight should have been stopped or not. Again, you’ve already seen or heard enough opinions on that aspect of the fight.
Pay-per-view issues aside, most people thought they got their money’s worth.

There was even an argument between Teddy Atlas and Stephen A. Smith about fast food thrown in as an extra entertainment bonus.

All around, the fight was a success. Both fighters are getting paid a ton of money, Vegas hotels and casinos had a higher profit margin this weekend, the UFC got paid for publicity, and everyone who thought a retired boxer would still beat a MMA fighter 13 years his junior were right.
