McGregor suffered a 10th round TKO in an absorbing battle with Mayweather in Las Vegas on Sunday.

Wealth-X, the wealth research firm, put Mayweather's net worth before the fight at $380 million. He thinks that the fight was stopped early. And for some obscure reason, the belt also features flags of almost all major countries in the world (including, for some reason, those of Afghanistan and South Korea).

"If I see an opportunity to make $300m or $350m in 36 minutes, why not?" But he'll leave Las Vegas a winner. "There's such a big difference from the boxing ring to a UFC octagon, and it's such a big learning curve", said Marciano Jr to the New York Post. And therefore it was the highest grossing boxing event in history.

Regardless, boxing is striking and that's McGregor's best skill in MMA.

1 movie at the US box office this weekend was the Samuel L. Jackson/Ryan Reynolds action movie The Hitman's Bodyguard, which made $10 million, down more than 50 percent from last week's opening weekend. The average size of a bet on McGregor at the Westgate was $212.

What was surprising was how entertaining the fight was. McGregor proved that this wasn't just some freak show.

Mayweather immediately confirmed he will retire - again - after moving ahead of the legendary Rocky Marciano in the all-time career stats list, having spent 21 years in the game. When he lost to Nate Diaz last year, he took it in stride.

"To the podium", he said.

Mayweather, historically a fighter that dances around and racks up points via lightning-quick jabs, went toe-to-toe with McGregor, and proceeded to drop some heavy bombs. In fact, the CEO for Mayweather Promotions believes McGregor "definitely" has a future in boxing, if he wants one. Conor maintained he wanted to fight the final two rounds.

Prior to the fight, Conor McGregors net worth was $35 million.

This was the first fight where Mayweather did not go a full 12 rounds since a Sept. 17, 2011 knockout of Victor Ortiz.

"We represent ourselves with pride wherever we go, we raise that flag so high", he said.
