(Mayweather waited around for a little while, then decided to start beating up McGregor, then won in the tenth round by TKO.)

There was tons of money made all around.

But were there any lessons learned? Sarah found five of them, which she articulated for Asian World Of Martial Arts.

Floyd Mayweather And Conor McGregor Set To Fight

Floyd Mayweather versus Conor McGregor

Floyd Mayweather versus Conor McGregor

In what will likely be the most lopsided inter-disciplinary fight since mixed martial artist Randy Couture erased boxer James Toney in an MMA fight in 2010, martial arts loudmouth Conor McGregor is going to take on detestable human/very elite pugilist Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match.

a) It will help identify which friends of yours are suckers who’d willing pay money to watch this.

b) One of these two — McGregor — is going to get well beaten up.
