Conor McGregor Doesn't Agree With Last Night's Stoppage

Conor McGregor Doesn't Agree With Last Night's Stoppage

'He should have let me keep going, I thought.'

Last night's highly anticipated fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor ended as most people thought it would, in a victory for Mayweather.

The MMA-star put up a decent effort, managing to last until the 10th round, before the ref thought he looked like he'd had enough and stopped the fight.

However, speaking after the fight, McGregor said he reckons the referee may have called it early.

He said: "I thought I took the early rounds pretty handy, he had to change his style and fair play to him, he did. He adjusted, he changed his style, he put his hands up more.

"He's composed. He's not that fast, he's not that powerful, but boy is he composed in there. So, he was making me throw and he was patient with his shots.

"I had a bit of fun over on this side. Hopefully I entertained the fans on this. I thought it was close, though.

"And I thought it was a little early of a stoppage. I get like that when I'm tired. I get a little wobbly and flowy. But get me into the corner and I'd have recovered and come back.

"I'd have liked to hit the floor. I'd have liked the ref ... there's a lot on the line here, he should have let me keep going, I thought.

"No one's taking these kinds of risks. So, fuck it, lay into me all you want. I'll take it on the chin. I'll take it wrapped around the neck on live TV. It's another day for me."

What do you guys think? Did referee Robert Byrd pull it early or was it the right decision?
