August 27, 2017 8:40 am by Chris Taylor

Current UFC lightweight champion of the world Conor McGregor surprised a lot of people with his performance against Floyd Mayweather last night in Las Vegas.

“Mystic Mac” had a very strong opening four rounds, which saw him land some solid body shots along with his lightning quick straight left on Mayweather.

Unfortunately for fans of the Irish superstar, McGregor would begin to fatigue in the later rounds and that is when Floyd Mayweather began to unleash his talents.

Mayweather would batter McGregor with punches in round nine and continued his onslaught in round ten which forced the referee to step in and put a stop to the action.

Following last night’s “Money Fight”, Conor’s former sparring partner and now bitter rival Paul Malignaggi took time to weigh in on the Mayweather vs McGregor contest.

Here is what the former two-weight boxing world champion, Malignaggi, had to say about Conor’s performance and the stoppage in round ten.

“The Magic Man” is hoping to score a boxing match with McGregor in the future and believes that it would be the easiest pay day he could ever make.
