About 3m people watched Mayweather - McGregor fight illegally

Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. and UFC lightweight champion Conor Mc Gregor face off during their official weigh-in at T Mobile Arena Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez Head to Las Vegas Ahead of Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor Fight

The title-card fight itself was reportedly delayed due to fans overloading the servers on UFC Fight Pass, though Twitter users posted about issues with both services. Let him come out trying to kill me with big shots early on, and then beat him down the stretch.

From her seats on the second level of the area, Neufeld-Worley said she had a great view of the ring and the spectators, including a few celebrity sightings. Alvarez, who took his only career defeat against Mayweather in 2013, said he ordered the pay-per-view, but "to see a show, not a fight".

Elsewhere, other customers on Twitter complained that they weren't able to watch the fight on the UFC.TV app, which was being administered by the NY live events streaming company NeuLion. McGregor didn't become king of boxing like he predicted before the fight, but he won millions of new fans and will now likely return to the UFC as its unquestioned star.

This was a complaint many had after his blockbuster fight with Manny Pacquiao in 2015 failed to live up to its billing. Coming into the night, Showtime - which broadcast the event - was expecting to potentially pull in as much as $1 billion from the fight alone. "Now when I get with my billionaire buddies, I don't get with them and say "I am happy to hang in your house" or "I'm happy to ride in your jet".

While Saturday's fight was not the mismatch many had predicated, Mayweather admitted it was the money involved that motivated his return.


First, the cost of this fight was $99.95, or $100 if you would prefer to round up. It was the most popular MMA fighter against the most popular boxer.

McGregor had also whined about the referee discontinuing the match in the tenth round, saying he was only "fatigued".

McGregor earned Mayweather's respect during those early rounds when he landed far more punches than the former multi-division champion, but admittedly the exertion of energy came back to bite him.

But that was a minor quibble.
