J.R. Smith and teammate LeBron James were two Cleveland Cavaliers sitting ringside for the much-hyped between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor on Saturday night at the T-Mobile Arena. Alvarez was knocked out by McGregor in the second round effectively making Conor the first UFC fighter to hold two belts at the same time.

In the eyes of many, he won the first three rounds of the fight - but then became exhausted down the stretch and was stopped in the tenth round. "I don't see nobody even talking the way he talk".

But McGregor's youthful flair (he's 29; Mayweather is 40) and surge of confidence ran into Mayweather's superior boxing experience.

Mayweather defeated the MMA superstar McGregor via 10th-round TKO.

After technical glitches disrupted the Floyd Mayweather Jr.

McGregor brought his trademark style of trash talk, but Mayweather, as usual, let his wrists do the talking (whenever his fists happen to be unclenched).

"I originally thought I would have to pay a few bucks, which I was totally open for", Gardner said.

The fight still is expected to challenge or surpass the PPV record Mayweather set when he fought Manny Pacquiao in 2015.

"It all could be about the money with him, because he can't be about no glory ... because what he did was a failure", he said.

"No, man", Mayweather Sr. said when asked if he would support his son coming out of retirement if another big payday presented itself.

"He's a hell of a fighter standing up - he kind of shocked me", Mayweather stated.

The UFC didn't hire Snoop Dogg because of his fight knowledge and objectivity, but taking shots at the promotion's greatest star after one of his greatest feats is surely overstepping the mark.
