Mayweather chooses 'right dance partner' for final fight

Mayweather's 2015 bout with Manny Pacquiao continues a very tenuous hold on the top spot at 4.6 million buys. Often regarded as fighting too defensively, Mayweather Jr picked apart his opponent with pressure throughout the fight.

And recently, I was shocked to see the amount of fan following MMA and combat sport possess in the city, during the Conor-Floyd fight - a lot of people came to me and discussed about the match. And he gave a very good showing. But many predicted that the savagery of mixed martial arts would not stand a chance against the sweet science of boxing.

Meanwhile Diaz has been caught in a backstage slanging match with former UFC heavyweight Brendan Schaub at the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight. Mayweather has that experience. One punch certainly wouldn't do it and McGregor didn't really have a plan B after he realized Mayweather was soaking up his punches and walking him down. I can't go tomorrow and say I'm going to do muay Thai in Thailand with a Thai fighter, because I can punch and kick well. But if that opportunity presents itself, the eight-division champ is open to the idea of boxing McGregor, saying "walang problema 'yan". "It was definitely an early stoppage for sure". And while Waterson said she'd "love for McGregor to win" and "wouldn't put it past [him]", she continued, "on any given day, anyone can get rocked". I get a little wobbly and floaty. I don't want to have my flag inside of your truck like this.' I said, 'Man, I'm not anxious about that.' He's saying, 'You never know if you ever need someone, so...' -- I already knew where he was going with it. I'd rather start from scratch and go step-by-step, not disrespecting anyone.

"There's a lot on the line here, let me keep going".

Mayweather defeated McGregor in the 1oth round of their boxing rules bout in Las Vegas on Saturday. Entering his first professional boxing bout, many experts and analyst thought he performed well in a losing effort.

I also read about glasses Amazon was selling that suddenly were taken off the market Saturday because they were deemed not safe. The skies darken, temperatures drop, and at that point we will be able to see the sun's corona , which is its hazy aura.

A fake Twitter account created to look similar to that of former two-weight boxing titlist and Showtime analyst Paulie Malignaggi fooled quite a few people on Friday, among them top UFC lightweight contender Tony Ferguson. No human collective has paid so much money to see something unfold before their eyes even though they were 99.9% certain of its outcome.

Though the fight suffered some at the box office because of extremely high ticket prices, it hit the kind of numbers on pay-per-view that promoters were hoping for.

Schaub does agree with McGregor that the Diaz fight should happen at the 155 weight limit for the lightweight title, and he expects the showdown to break the UFC pay-per-view record.

Additionally, HHH stated that an event like Mayweather vs McGregor was nearly impossible to replicate, and despite the outcome being predictable, the overall show was most definitely entertaining.
