Trained our hardest and gave it our best shot. Came up short this time but we'll be back. Win or Learn 🥊

I have nothing but respect and admiration for this man. From a cold damp gym in walkinstown coaching classes on the Mayweather pull counter to stepping in the ring and going toe to toe with the man himself, looking like he more than belonged there. You're some man for one man @thenotoriousmma. Keep doing us all proud 🍀 #SBG #maymac #mma #ufc #boxing #happy #proud #grateful #irishpride #somemanforoneman #gamechanger #nothingbutrespect
McGregor was TKO’d in the tenth round after a spirited showing in the first few frames. In fact, McGregor took the first two to three rounds, landing a nasty counter lead uppercut in the first.
For an 0-0 professional boxer going against an undefeated legend in the sport, Team SBG has plenty to be proud of in how their teammate acquitted himself in the ring when he usually does his work in the octagon.
How do you feel about McGregor’s performance against Mayweather on Saturday night?
