Why does McGregor have a tendency to slip into sloppiness during the middle rounds of a fight?

In the sixth round, Floyd lands a number of blows to the body and starts to put pressure on his opponent.

While McGregor kept firing, landing more punches than fight analysts could have predicted - 111 in less than 10 rounds of action, an impressive clip for even a seasoned boxer against Mayweather - he also wasted a lot of energy.

Mayweather vs McGregor wasn't the greatest display of the fistic arts you will ever see. "It was an honor for me to showcase my skills".

Mayweather was minus 600 at William Hill, down from 11-1 when the fight was announced. It was fascinating to see this whole process play out, with Mayweather needing to make mid-fight adjustments to beat the UFC fighter. That's below the $3.25 million goal set by the distributor.

Mayweather's prediction was spot on.

"I've been through the ringer a million times", South Point oddsmaker Jimmy Vaccaro said, citing his four decades of bookmaking experience.

And Sony's "All Saints", from Affirm Films and Provident Films should earn $1.55 million from 846 locations.

"The check is alright", McGregor chuckled.

By the end of the night, those nerves were gone.

He disclosed after that fight that he cut sparring short a week earlier than usual because of his aching hands.
