After losing to Floyd Mayweather, Conor McGregor now targets whiskey market

It didn't stop there either.

He pretended to be with Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s security team and shadowed them past security - who he claims failed to scan his ticket, which would have exposed him. That's just the difference between an MMA guy and a boxing fighter. The UFC star identifies as a Manchester United fan, potentially making things a little awkward for ex-Liverpool striker Keane. "I thought I smoked him in the early rounds", he said. "I could also continue in the boxing game". You wouldn't see Mayweather step into the UFC octagon for US$100 billion. Even in defeat, his left cheek swollen like a poached egg, McGregor was still a showman in full. "He fought like a Mexican".

Chris Hemsworth also posted a picture of himself on the way to the fight on board a private jet with Hollywood mega producer Jerry Bruckheimer.

Mayweather was in very high spirits as he partied with his supporters in the early hours of the morning in Vegas. I have to give respect to that. The American boxer said he had deliberately taken his time in order to take advantage of a fatigued McGregor.

"Fair play to him, what a career he's had". "And this is delicious, so keep an eye out for it".

McGregor wasn't centre stage, though, Coach John Kavanagh stole the show with his outrageous dance moves.

But considering the apocalyptic predictions leading up to the fight, it more than lived up to its billing.

"The reason Floyd called Conor the F word is because Conor called Floyd a monkey", Mayweather's rep told TMZ.

By the fourth round Mayweather went on the attack and started landing blow after blow against a suddenly desperate McGregor who was bravely hanging on while clutching and grabbing the American. "I get a little wobbly when I'm tired", he said.

"I'm surprised boxing historians weren't up in arms saying: 'Is this a circus? But I was the better man. It was our gameplan to take our time and take him out down the stretch", he added.

What was surprising was how entertaining the fight was.

The victory is not the end of Mayweather's earnings from the event.

Hopefully one day McGregor will have a newfound appreciation of his achievement on August 26, 2017.

They thought the fight was going to be set up. For the Filipino legend, "running" does guarantee a fight.

0-1: McGregor's boxing record.

For everyone concerned, it was good business.

Everybody had a right to smell a rat.
