The short answer is "no".
Conor McGregor's boxing debut didn't at all go to plan.
It remains to be seen whether Rousey will ever compete in the UFC again. And being competitive isn't quite enough.
"I wanted to fight one more time, I was being greedy".
As for his performance against Mayweather, it was solid, yet nothing spectacular.
McGregor did state in the weeks just before the megafight that he would end Mayweather in under four rounds.
Waterson said that it was McGregor's "creative footwork" that would make for an interesting exchange between the two men. McGregor is a fighter and he fought admirably for as long as he could.
The "Money Fight" certainly attracted a lot of attention and, with that, as many critics as fans that were pleased with how it all played out. The counter left uppercut in the first being the most impressive of them all.
Like Mayweather, McGregor enjoys flaunting the luxury he now finds himself in. With a percentage of the pay-per-view taken into account, the Stockton native was thought to have made close to $10m when his disclosed purse is added in. Mayweather stopped McGregor in the 10th round.
But Mayweather Jr's composure and experience in boxing carried him throughout the early rounds, where his opponent began to tire out.
Furthermore, the Game praised Conor McGregor for drawing influence from the WWE and Mayweather in order to create his own persona.More news: Tigers' Justin Upton to the Angels in a shocking trade
Some of those people watched on sites purposefully set up to stream illegally, but most watched on mainstream video platforms like Periscope, Facebook and YouTube, where a number of users simply pointed their phone at their television and hit record. Meanwhile, Mayweather was content with putting his gloves up and coming forward. "But f**k, get me into the corner and I'll recover and I'll come back".
By the ninth round, Mayweather clearly had become the hunter and McGregor the game. It is going to be one heck of a fight that I think both fighters are going to know once and for all what they are really made of.
It's safe to say that mixed martial arts (MMA) has grown exponentially in Chennai, over the past two years. 50-0 or to lose to an MMA fighter who never boxed before.
McGregor, the UFC's lightweight champion, has stated that he will now return to the UFC.
Mayweather was also guaranteed $100 million for the Pacquiao fight, but took home $250 million. But that couldn't be further from the truth.
The punishment increased in the ninth, with McGregor reduced to desperate holds to slow the abuse, and then an onslaught of punches in the 10th convinced Byrd to stop the fight. Guys like Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin would murder him.
Mayweather has beaten some of the best boxers of this or any generation and captured 11 major boxing championships. But the rest of the 154 and 160 pound division would be just as bad. That's why McGregor's energy expenditure goes. "In the rematch, even though he won, he won the rematch fair and square, but still he was absolutely gassed in that".
I've got to agree with Triple H here in the sense that a lot of the MayMac beef, trash-talk and rivalry seemed to be fabricated and scripted much like the WWE...well, except for the actual fight. "We did receive a limited number of complaints, but nothing commensurate with the level of press coverage that it generated".
Aldo (26-3 MMA, 8-2 UFC) and McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) don't have the friendliest of pasts. Proving that Floyd Mayweather in one of the best boxers ever. Holm asked. They both put everything on the line. He lost the rematch at UFC 202 but received $2m for the fight.
