Mayweather Mcregor Super Fight

The fight was shown on Showtime pay-per-view and was priced at $99.95

Following a good start, a fatigued Conor McGregor would unravel and was eventually stopped standing in the tenth round.

A mega event, the cross codes clash has seemingly smashed all pay-per-view records. Was this bout the MMA star vs the future fall of fame boxer?

UFC President Dana White, who was heavily involved in the making of the fight, claimed on his Tuesday Night Contender series that the fight pulled in a whopping 6,500,000 buys. This sets the record for the highest pay-per-view event ever.

Official confirmation of the figure is expected soon.

The previous American record stood at 4,600,000 buys, set by Floyd



Mayweather’s fight against Manny Pacquiao in 2015.

Numbers for the UK and Ireland, where the fight was aired on Sky Box Office, are yet to be confirmed – however Matchroom Promotions boss Eddie Hearn has noted before the fight that they were huge and potentially record breaking.

The prices on this side of the Atlantic were £19.95/€24.95, rising by £5/€5 on the day of the fight.

The previous record in the UK and Ireland was for Anthony Joshua v Wladimir Klitschko in April which, while unconfirmed exactly, were over 1,500,000.

Nak Muay Thai Lao Traditional Muay Thai and Fitness Center best in Las Vegas

The sport of Muay Thai demands discipline and respect. At Nak Muay Thai-Lao, we emphasize both discipline and respect as well as control and technique. Muay Thai is the ancient art from Thailand.



The origin of Muay Thai, as a fighting style, is thought to have developed for centuries as tribes migrated south from the steppes of China through Vietnam, Laos, Burma, and Cambodia. The major tribes of that period, one of which was the (Tai) Siamese, fought fiercely to survive as they moved south and encountered other smaller tribes in what is now northern and central Thailand, and as far south as Malaysia. Through training, loss of life, military tactics, and hand-to-hand combat, technique and tactics were honed to a razors edge, and the rudimentary elements of a “fighting-style” began to take root.

Older soldiers and fathers taught their students and sons the offensive and defensive tactics and techniques, proper posture and position, and skills to enhance awareness. Those students and sons went on to teach their children, and the roots and permanent structure of an “effective fighting-style” began to strengthen. Proper technique and power strikes were a vital element in war that requires hand-to-hand skills. Each strike and movement is meant to deliever a debilitating and crushing blow, and enable the fighter to move on to the next opponent quickly without leaving himself exposed to an attack.

It would seem that the evolution of the most-effective hand-to-hand form of combat evolved in a rather Darwin-like manner demanding survival of the fittest: those who fought well…….lived and taught others before falling themselves.

The Thai were on constant guard against attack from neighboring countries, including Burma and Cambodia. Enemies for centuries, the Burmese and Thai fought several wars wreaking destruction on both countries. Muay Thai was primarily a part of the Thai culture during this period and was a mandatory training as part of the Thai military of that time. The military continued to train soldiers for centuries in the art of Muay Thai: defining, and refining the skills, tactics, and techniques with the wars against the Burmese, Cambodians, and other invaders.

Young Thai men returning from a tour of duty with the military soon engaged in matches for sport and fun in villages and towns. Each province, town, and village would support a local fighter who showed some promise and skill. Older warriors, survivors of many battles and engagements of the enemy, became Muay Thai instructors and teachers [ Kroo Muay]. The love of the sport, and a need for the defense of the kingdom made Muay Thai a part of the Thai culture for the next 500 years as generation after generation passed the skills on to the next.

Master Airr firmly believes that fighters and students should be well trained and well informed about the culture that comes along with the sport of Muay Thai. Not only are fighters expected to be strong and conditioned, they are expected to fight with common sense and intelligence. Fighters should fight clean, they should use good traditional Muay Thai technique, and they should always stay humble.

Our trainers are highly skilled in the martial art of Muay Thai. They work with you on at your pace to grow in technique and skill, whether you are training as a fighter or using Muay Thai as a fitness tool.
