Floyd Mayweather bids goodbye to boxing by beating Conor McGregor

Khabib Nurmagomedov is eyeing a December showdown with Conor McGregor.

UFC superstar Conor McGregor racked up a bar tab of NZ$138,000 as he celebrated his boxing loss to Floyd Mayweather.

McGregor impressed many pundits for holding his own against a fighter in the class of Mayweather, with many having predicted the Irishman would be embarrassed by his undefeated opponent.

Many McGregor and UFC fans are calling for the fighters to face off again, but this time they want it to be in a UFC Octagon.

The 30-year-old man of Somalian heritage was shifted to hospital in critical condition after he was wounded by gun shots. Belgium has been the theatre of several attacks of recent against police or military personnel in recent months.

Mayweather will now head into what he says is a permanent retirement with a ideal 50-0 record, one better than heavyweight legend Rocky Marciano. Luckily, the fighter known as "Money" has friends and one of them was allowed to put down $87,000. McGregor's awkwardness against a rusty and eroded Mayweather is what enabled him to not embarrass himself.

Mayweather, 40, won the fight via TKO in the 10th round, but McGregor has received high praise for his performance. The fight was stopped one minute and five seconds into round 10 by the Ref.

"Came out looking to box - I thought you were being outboxed early on. I was well dressed, so I just walked in with them, and there was so many of them that it wasn't a problem". But I was the better man tonight. But the promotion looks good in the end since the fight was so much better than expected. He's a lot more experienced especially in the later part of it, but early on I thought I was handy enough to be honest, but he's composed in there. What boxing fans thought of the content of the actual fight is still being gauged.

2011: The last time Mayweather's fight ended in a stoppage, that time versus Victor Ortiz. Outages forced the fight to be delayed almost two hours.

Scopus Asset Management Lp decreased Tjx Cos Inc New (NYSE:TJX) stake by 687,708 shares to 812,292 valued at $61.03M in 2016Q4. ULTA grew its physical footprint to include hundreds of stores, and the stock drew plenty of bullish commentary from analysts.

For mine, I can't see how the bout was even sanctioned given McGregor isn't really a boxer in the ordinary sense of the term.

Mayweather's 10 round stoppage means he retires with a flawless 50-0 record, edging Rocky out of the record books. "I lost this battle but the war goes on", then added "Notorious". But if there is something I need to get over, it's to figure out why there's these dips in the middle area of a fight. Another chimed in, "Dude if Floyd fought Mcgregor in the octagon boxing folks would be quiet". "I guaranteed to everybody that this wouldn't go the distance".

When all is said and done, history will show that McGregor did okay.
