McGregor on Mayweather after fight: ‘I turned him into a Mexican tonight’

Conor McGregor

At long last, the epic fight between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather is in the books. It was fun while it lasted.

The fight ended as expected, with Mayweather defeating McGregor via technical knockout. McGregor performed better than expected, though, and even claimed a few early rounds.

There’s a case to made that the fight should not have been stopped when it was. Based on social media response, he earned the respect of many viewers.

Though McGregor took a loss, he didn’t lose his personality. The Irish mixed martial artist still had something controversial to say after the fight.

The likely explanation is that many Mexican fighters are aggressive and stand toe to toe exchanging punches, so it was actually a compliment from McGregor.

Many people, however, were thoroughly confused — or even offended — by the comment.

Knowing what we know about McGregor, we can expect to hear plenty more from him in the weeks following this fight.
