Follow the action below
8:26 – Co-main event Gervonta Davis vs. Francisco Fonseca is currently in progress. The main event was expected to begin around 11:40pm/8:40pm ETPT.

9:06 – Conor Mcgregor makes his walk to the ring with his traditional music. Looks to have his usual stoic face.
9:08 – Floyd Mayweather makes his walk to the ring wearing a “TBE” hat and a ski mask. Both fighters are now in the ring.
9:12 – The fighters have been introduced. McGregor gets a pretty loud ovation and Mayweather gets a mixture of both. They faceoff and Mayweather making faces, McGregor barely blinking.
9:14 – McGregor comes out coming forward and lands a few left hands in the opening minute.

Impressive first round for Conor but Mayweather seemed to not be throwing a ton.
9:18 – McGregor lands a nice straight left in the opening seconds of the second round. Referee warns the Irishman about hitting the back of the head on one exchange in close. A few more tie ups in the round and it was a closer one. Likely McGregor still wins it though.
9:22 – McGregor lands a couple big shots midway through the round snapping Floyd’s head back. The jab is working a bit for McGregor and Mayweather not really throwing a ton.
9:26 – Mayweather gets going a bit in the fourth round. He landed a couple nice body shots and seems to be getting the timing down a bit.
9:30 – Mayweather’s best round of the night. Landed two big combinations and one ended with a nice right hand that seemed to make McGregor slow for a moment.

9:42 – Better round for McGregor but he’s getting hit more than he’d probably like to. He has his moments of really nice defense. But when Mayweather lands he’s landing big shots. The cardio seems to be an issue as none of McGregor’s punches, even when he lands, are making Mayweather stop in his tracks.
