"Congrats to Floyd on a well fought match", McGregor continued.
Although White spouted the 6.5 million PPV buys number with utmost confidence, the Los Angeles Times wasn't ready to call it official just yet. "It truly was an amazing and enjoyable camp, and honestly I feel with just a little change in certain areas of the prep, we could have built the engine for 12 full rounds under stress, and got the better result on the night".

Diaz will surpass $20 million with no problems and likely earn closer to $30 million.
"After seeing Saturday's fight, Canelo probably would have knocked [McGregor] out in one round or two rounds", De La Hoya said.
There were a lot of fans who believed that McGregor actually had a chance against Mayweather. That's the way we fight.
Still, that does not mean a rematch is not possible because all it takes is the right price and the right deal to make things happen.

Attar added that McGregor has no plans of retirement after his biggest payday against Mayweather.
The event was initially delayed due to reports of technical difficulties, which occurred on both the Showtime and UFC apps, Sports Illustrated reports. In the meantime, McGregor has claimed the lightweight championship.
Wanliss agreed, praising McGregor for taking the opportunity to make US$100 million from the event. Great understanding of frames and head position. "I've been giggling ever since I did it". Roy Jones Jr is a fine example. UFC 202, he was injured before the fight, which forced him to reduce his training sessions.
But the 31-year-old declined the offer, saying he would "ride or die" by his choice.
