For the last year or so, one of the most hyped events for this year has been the boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor. The undefeated Mayweather was going up for his 50th victory to end his illustrious career versus a champion UFC fighter, McGregor. This scenario of having a professional boxer going against an MMA fighter was unheard of, but it was what the world wanted.
With all eyes around the world looking at Las Vegas, we put together some of the funniest tweets from the night.
