Everyone is looking forward to the main event of Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul, but the undercard is already serving up some decent fights.
Former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson opened the show and he actually looked pretty slick inside the ring - despite getting absolutely dropped in the fourth round.
The ex-Cincinnati Bengals star was taking on Brian Maxwell and while no official winner was declared, Ochocinco certainly left his mark.
