- Irishman fought undefeated boxer in superfight last weekend
- McGregor estimated to have made at least $30m from fight
Conor McGregor has heaped praise on Floyd Mayweather after their superfight last weekend. It may be little surprise that the UFC fighter has warm feelings for the boxer who helped him earn a minimum of $30m from their bout but the build-up had been stormy with the two exchanging unpalatable slurs.
“Congrats to Floyd on a well fought match,” wrote McGregor on Instagram. “Very experienced and methodical in his work. I wish him well in retirement. He is a heck of a boxer. His experience, his patience and his endurance won him this fight hands down. I always told him he was not a fighter but a boxer. But sharing the ring with him he is certainly a solid fighter. Strong in the clinch. Great understanding of frames and head position.”
Just coming back around after a whirlwind couple of days. Thank you to all the fans for the support of the fight and the event! Without your support we as fighters are nothing so I thank you all! Thank you to my team of coaches and training partners! I had an amazing team and It truly was an amazing and enjoyable camp, and honestly I feel with just a little change in certain areas of the prep, we could have built the engine for 12 full rounds under stress, and got the better result on the night. Getting to 12 rounds alone in practice was always the challenge in this camp. We started slowly getting to the 12 and decreasing the stress in the rounds the closer it got to 12. I think for the time we had, 10 weeks in camp, it had to be done this way. If I began with a loaded 12 rounds under much stress I would have only hit a brick wall and lost progress as a result and potentially not made the fight. A little more time and we could have made the 12 cleanly, while under more stress, and made it thru the later rounds in the actual fight. I feel every decision we made at each given time was the correct decision, and I am proud of everyone of my team for what we done in the short time that we done it. 30 minutes was the longest I have fought in a ring or cage or anywhere. Surpassing my previous time of 25 minutes. I am happy for the experience and happy to take all these great lessons with me and implement them into my camp going forward. Another day another lesson! Congrats to Floyd on a well fought match. Very experienced and methodical in his work. I wish him well in retirement. He is a heck of a boxer. His experience, his patience and his endurance won him this fight hands down. I always told him he was not a fighter but a boxer. But sharing the ring with him he is certainly a solid fighter. Strong in the clinch. Great understanding of frames and head position. He has some very strong tools he could bring into an MMA game for sure. Here is a toast of whiskey to everyone involved in this event and everyone who enjoyed it! Thank you to you all! Onto the next one!

Beyond being a billion-dollar fight, Saturday night’s mash-up boxing bout won’t be important enough to inspire a lasting legacy
Regardless of where combat sports meander following the mash-up boxing bout between Floyd Mayweather and UFC’s Conor McGregor, the 26 August spectacle doesn’t signal the start of a new fistic trend. Beyond being a billion-dollar fight, it won’t be important enough to inspire a lasting legacy.
I declare this a little more than a year after my book was released on the forgotten and misunderstood clash between Muhammad Ali and Japanese pro wrestling icon Antonio Inoki, which in several ways led to the creation of modern MMA. It was panned and dismissed before, during and after it took place in 1976. Several decades were required to provide enough space to extract the true impact of what it meant for the world to watch Ali, the most famous boxer of all time, step into a mixed-rules arena.
