What are some of the lessons of the fight?  First is that the talk about McGregor fighting his first boxing match was overdone if for no other reasons that MMA fighters actually do box as part of their fights and McGregor has knocked people out with his punches 다운로드. Mayweather admitted that McGregor was better than anticipated and McGregor southpaw stance was awkward for Mayweather to solve.  McGregor also played counter puncher and his jab was effective enough over the early rounds to allow him to land some solid upper cuts 이베스트투자증권 다운로드.

The final lesson is what happens when a fighter takes control of his destiny.  Mayweather is his own boss and keeps much of his earnings 다운로드. Pacquiao had to split his take from his bout with Mayweather with Arum and a portion of Conor’s purse ends up in the UFC and White’s pocket.  Mayweather along with De La Hoya have long controlled their destiny and kept much of the purses during the last portion of their career.  They changed boxing since they showed that fighters can not only fight in the ring but they can promote their own fights.  Both De La Hoya and Mayweather control their fate financially, and this could impact Conor McGregor and the UFC.  On the average, boxers make more money than MMA fighters and McGregor finally earned a big pay day plus his performance will enhance his own status.  The question for the UFC, will this open door for the top fighters get a higher share of the PPV gate.
