Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather
It has been over 5 years since Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor met inside a boxing ring in Las Vegas -- and to this day, the whole thing still feels a little surreal.
Just think: Perhaps the most anticipated fight in combat sports history began with a referee essentially reminding one of the participants in which sport he was competing.
"You're going to hear me say stop, because I'm not going to wrestle with you and I'm not going to grapple with you," referee Robert Byrd said as he looked squarely at McGregor.
It was like a last-second nod to the fact that many viewers were just as interested to see whether McGregor would simply follow the rules of boxing as they were in his chances of actually winning.
Mayweather defeated McGregor by TKO in Round 10 in front of 14,623 at T-Mobile Arena.
What this spectacle said about combat sports -- that a mismatch of epic proportions would greatly outsell any legitimate championship fight -- is slightly troubling (maybe even a little depressing), but it's certainly no surprise. Mayweather vs. McGregor was an appeal to imagination and a perfect fit in the current state of media coverage, celebrity worship and Twitter fingers.
