LOS ANGELES, CA – The FS1 MAYWEATHER VS. MCGREGOR POSTFIGHT SHOW was hosted by Kate Abdo, with analysts Dominick Cruz, Daniel Jacobs and Tyron Woodley breaking down the fight. Megan Olivi and Heidi Androl added reports and interviewed Mayweather and McGregor.

Dominick Cruz on his Mayweather vs. McGregor: “It exceeded my expectations. I thought it would last six rounds. Mayweather’s defense help up early. Floyd’s ringmanship helped him. He said ‘I’m going to let him punch me in two or three rounds.’ But he knew if Conor moves back on his heels, he’s less efficient. By the fourth round, Floyd started the forward march and eventually took him out.”

Daniel Jacobs on his opinion of the fight: “Conor won a couple of rounds. You can see he has the skills to pay the bills. He impressed me, but I thought Floyd could have finished this earlier.”

Tyron Woodley on if McGregor earned respect: “No one can say anything about Conor McGregor in the boxing ring. He can fight anyone in there now. Floyd was losing rounds. He knew he could figure him out and walked him down. I know that surprised Conor McGregor. I think Floyd had to figure him out.”

Jacobs on how Mayweather paced himself in the fight: “Conor really slowed down by round five or six. Conor didn’t know how to handle the punches. I give it to the mentality that Mayweather had to give McGregor three rounds. He looked perfect after those three rounds. But I would have liked him to knock him out earlier.”

Cruz on the length of the fight: “This went longer than I thought it would. Both of them said it would end earlier. This was a statement, as much as you thought he should have gotten him out there earlier, he didn’t, because MMA fighters train in boxing. Yes, Conor didn’t have boxing experience. But he has fight experience. We’ve now seen you can transfer the fight experience from MMA to boxing.”

Woodley on how McGregor could have changed his style: “I think Floyd was frustrated early. Conor was throwing those mini pat-pat combinations. He should have used the range and bigger punches better. Using the mini punches, McGregor was fatiguing himself out. He got tired and Mayweather let him get tired.”

Cruz on if it was a good stoppage: “I know Conor wanted to go longer. Floyd was picking it up and he wasn’t going to back off. Mayweather didn’t look tired.”

Jacobs on if the fight was stopped early: “I felt the stoppage could have waited a little longer. I wanted to see him go out. For Floyd to not have any questions. This was still great. It was the job of the referee to protect the fighter. I agree with the decision.”

Woodley on McGregor’s mistakes and if it was ended too early: “I wanted to see a good fight. This was a great fight. I think Floyd would have liked to see him hit the floor. Conor had no more left. He didn’t know how to properly clinch. He would have gotten knocked out later if the ref hadn’t stopped it. This wasn’t a video game. Conor wasn’t going to get his power back. I think Conor was in good condition, but I think he was missing some of his efficiency. He didn’t know how to position his punches. He’s used to being the hammer, but when you’re the nail, things change. It was mental pressure and boxing experience that Conor lacked.”

Jacobs on if McGregor earned some respect tonight: “We saw Conor McGregor have some success early and I was worried. Conor was really landing at will. It took Floyd a while to figure him out. Conor needs the respect for taking on the best boxer of our generation. He showed he had the heart and determination to fight.”

Woodley on if Mayweather’s 50-0 record should have an asterisk: “Not at all. The way Conor went out after Floyd, this was a legit fight.”

Cruz on how the fight played out: “Both these guys did their homework, followed game plans and did their style of fight.”

Cruz on if the loss by McGregor will still benefit him in MMA: “Yes, the mental preparation he just went through for this fight was amazing. You just faced the best boxer of all time. Nobody in mixed martial arts can say that. Now he’ll get his six other weapons back when he fights again.”

Floyd Mayweather on the fight: “I told fans I was going to give them an exciting fight. He was going to land some shots and I was going to move forward. He’s a tough competitor, is still young and has a long career to go. I saw in his MMA fights where he’d come and shoot a heavy load in the beginning and then start to fade. I let him shoot his heavy shots early and then down the stretch took control. He caught me with a couple of punches. He’s got a pretty good punch. ”

McGregor on Mayweather: “He’s not a powerful puncher. I wanted to go on. I’ve never gone 12 rounds. I thought the first four rounds were mind. Maybe he got one. I got fatigued rounds 8, 9 and 10. Floyd stayed composed. He didn’t have a speed advantage. I give him credit. I almost got him with the uppercut. If it had just been a little closer.”

McGregor on what’s next: “I don’t know what’s next. Who’s next? I want to figure out what I did wrong.”
