The big moments of the Mayweather-McGregor fight that everybody will be talking about

It’s over!

One is the greatest boxer of the last 20 years. The other is the biggest name in combat sports.

It was Mayweather-McGregor I.

The long-talked-about and much-anticipated boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor actually happened in Las Vegas at T-Mobile Arena.

In what was a much more entertaining fight than the equally hyped Mayweather-Pacquiao fight, McGregor made it to the tenth round before he finally tired and was finished in a TKO by Mayweather.

Below, we tracked the big punches and big scenes from the fight and the circus that surrounds it. These are the moments everybody will be talking about after the fight.

It looked like a lot of the people who showed up for the fight were putting their money on McGregor as the odds on Mayweather actually went down. Most thought the odds would sway in the other direction

Seeing McGregor boxing is bizarre

The fighters were feeling each other out in the first round, but McGregor did get in an uppercut

50-0! But how does that compare to Rocky Marciano?

The first pro to go 50-0 and he gets the “Money Belt.”
