The biggest event of the weekend, and undoubtedly one of the most exciting in the calendar for professional sports this year, was the boxing extravaganza that pitted Floyd Mayweather against Conor McGregor, his challenger who came from a Mixed Martial Arts background. Mayweather won by TKO in the 10th round, but it wasn't a cakewalk by any stretch of the imagination. McGregor put up a really good fight and it showed early on, a fact that was echoed throughout the Twitter-verse.

As the bout wore on, some had serious concerns about McGregor's stamina and how much longer he could last against Mayweather.

Chance the Rapper had a little bit of fun on Twitter after the bout as well, repping Floyd's win and also playfully chastising those who made bets against the champ.
