It’s all over (thank God?). Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor Live world tour spanning four cities in four days finally came to an end earlier today (Fri., July 14, 2017) when the two met inside The SSE Arena in London, England (full replay here). It is the last time Mayweather and McGregor will come face-to-face before weighing in before their meeting inside the boxing ring on Aug. 26 live on Showtime pay-per-view (PPV) from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

While the London stop produced less erratic behavior compared to the last two (Toronto and Brooklyn), the fourth installment of the press conference circus between “Money” and “Notorious” was memorable in its own right. From Mayweather calling on Nate Diaz to McGregor rubbing the boxer’s bald head, London witnessed some world-class banter. Not to mention the childish f-bomb that Mayweather blasted McGregor with.
In order to relive the action and play back the most important moments of the London presser, UFC has released a compilation of the best highlights (shown above). Check it out and breathe it in. This isn’t going to happen ever again (thank God?).Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather and UFC megastar Conor McGregor are gonna “fight” in August. Since it’s a boxing match, Mayweather will almost certainly beat McGregor bloody and then use McGregor’s hair to mop up his own bodily fluids. To alleviate that inevitable disappointment and test the two fighters’ true skills, I put on a series of better fights. In a pro wrestling video game.
Since this whole Mayweather vs McGregor thing Mayweather vs McGregor Live is just an excuse for an absurdly lucrative media circus—much of which went down this week during a four-day multinational promo tour in which Mayweather and McGregor yelled at each other, threw money around, and McGregor delivered some extremely questionable opinions about race—I decided to go as big as possible with my fights. I wanted to see who’d fare better against the best fighters ever conceived. Only one video game could offer me the sort of roster I needed: Fire Pro Wrestling World, which came out on Steam a few days ago and already has over 3,000 custom-made fighters.
I went through all of them to select Mayweather and McGregor’s opponents. I decided both would run the same gauntlet of larger-than-life circus fights. Whoever fared better—even if they lost every fight—would be declared the winner. I also had to choose between multiple Mayweathers and McGregors, because of course multiple people have taken cracks at making two of the most well-known fighters on Earth. In order to do this with as much scientific rigor as possible, I matched each version of Mayweather and McGregor against each other in hopes that one pairing would produce the sort of fight most people are expecting from the two.
Thanks to Fire Pro Wrestling’s complex AI logic system, which allows people to assign percentage chances that fighters will use specific moves in all sorts of different scenarios, I came away with a Mayweather and McGregor who fought remarkably similarly to their real-life counterparts. Mayweather punched, clinched, covered, evaded, and frustrated. McGregor flew forward with knees and kicks, seemingly possessed by a primal hunger to land his big left hand—but he also looked like a pale ghost of himself after a couple hard rounds. Perfect. That’s when I knew I had my very good wrestle boy robots based on not very good punch men.How To Watch Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor Live Online?
Goku from Dragon Ball Z is probably the most powerful fighter in all of anime, though forum debates on that subject rage to this day and will undoubtedly persist after we’re all dead. Obviously, though, Mayweather and McGregor had to duke it out with the man who once yelled so loud that he grew several additional six packs.Goku beats down Mayweather but eventually wears himself out. Mayweather taunts every chance he gets while jabbing the crap out of Goku. Mayweather obsessively uppercuts Goku in the back and butt, only to succumb to exhaustion himself. Goku then hoists Mayweather into the air and slams him, leading to a pin.
McGregor overwhelms Goku early and nearly wins with ground ‘n’ pound, but he ends up exhausted (of course) and barely escapes from a power bomb pin. McGregor misses a spin kick, as is his way, and looks to be so tired that he can barely stand. Goku starts wailing on him. Then, out of nowhere, McGregor uncorks a left hand the size of his own ego and Goku eats dirt.McGregor won’t shut up about what would happen if he was duking it Mayweather vs McGregor Live PPV out with Mayweather in an MMA fight instead of a boxing match, so I figured we ought to contest this on neutral territory: a street fight. The first rule of street fighting is that there are no rules—which is why fireballs made of spirit energy are allowed—so I decided to toss Mayweather and McGregor in with multiple characters from Street Fighter.
At the same time.Balrog is a goddamn giant, but Mayweather holds his own and forces Balrog to tag in Guile. Mayweather beats down Guile and Ryu at the same time, but then they tag in Mika, who absolutely styles on Floyd with every pro wrestling move in the book. Balrog returns and finishes the job by casually standing on Mayweather—who is basically dead.McGregor comes out aggressive and backs up Balrog and Ryu with a series of withering kicks and knees. Guile gives him some trouble, but then Guile tags in Mika, and McGregor goes into Irish berserker mode against both of them. McGregor actually lands a spin kick, something that has never happened in real life, but finds himself exhausted afterward. Mika and Ryu knock him out of the ring and grab a steel chair.
Unbelievably, McGregor fends off their dual-pronged strike and even manages to nearly submit Guile. Unfortunately for him, Balrog—who is somehow bigger than the largest man on earth, Nate Diaz—lumbers back into the ring and boxes McGregor into a pulp. He then pins him the same way he submitted Mayweather, casually smirking all the while.Didn’t Mayweather vs McGregor basically already happen in 2006's Rocky Balboa, which was bad? Even then, though, Rocky—the scruffy, odds-defying god of underdogs—is impossible to dislike, which makes him a perfect foil for Mayweather and McGregor. Also, he’s the best-known fictional boxer in existence, so I didn’t really have a choice here.
Rocky bloodies Mayweather with a single punch, which doesn’t bode well for Mayweather’s chances. Mayweather fights hard, clinching and moving like his training regimen mostly consisted of watching the ballroom scene from Beauty And Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor Live The Beast repeatedly, but he’s a bloody mess. Eventually, Rocky tires, and Mayweather turns the tide. He starts taunting and landing hard combos. But then the tide turns again, and Rocky begins body slamming Mayweather from the top ropes. Then the tide turns a third time, and Mayweather lays into Rocky, who is so exhausted that light gusts are bowling him over. It’s wild! By this point, however, nearly 20 (in-game) minutes have passed, and I realize I should set a time limit for these things, because these guys seem incapable of finishing each other.
