A Picture Shows Dana White's Immediate Reaction To Mayweather Beating McGregor

A Picture Shows Dana White's Immediate Reaction To Mayweather Beating McGregor

A photographer has captured Dana White's immediate reaction to Floyd Mayweather beating Conor McGregor.

The 'Baldfather' is used to seeing two of his own fighters compete against each other. But last night's boxing bout pitted his fighter against Mayweather.

During the build-up, White admitted to never feeling these kind of nerves before on fight week. And he would have been pleasantly surprised by the start McGregor made.

The Irishman stamped his authority as he took the center of the ring, pumping out his jab while catching Mayweather with a sweet uppercut.

But the 40-year-old made the necessary adjustments while McGregor's gas tank slowly emptied. The returning boxer eventually secured a 10th round knockout, racking up his 50th professional victory.

And White's reaction to the stoppage has been perfectly captured as he cuts a dejected figure.

A picture is worth a thousand words.

Following the fight, White praised McGregor's brave effort: "I'm so proud of Conor tonight," White said at the post-fight press conference via MMA Fighting.

"It's not the fight I thought it would be, it was a completely different fight than I expected. When you get into professional boxing, you guys know, you start four rounds, you go six rounds. He went 10 rounds tonight with arguably the greatest to ever do it.

"I would rather he did not. This isn't what he does. He's a mixed martial artist where he goes in and he fights and he uses all of his weapons, and tonight he was only allowed use his hands.

"I think he did great tonight, I don't think there's anything else left to prove. I would rather he fight in mixed martial arts," White said.

White also had his say on potential future cross-code fights. "I don't even want to talk about my other guys in a boxing match."

"This one was these two big superstars, this thing built from the bottom up from the fans to the media and then up to us when we even started remotely considering something like this. It was a special event and a rare event. I'm not looking to do this again," he added.

While commenting on McGregor's future: "We're not talking about fighting tonight. He put on a great performance. We're not talking about fighting. You know how he is. When he's ready, he'll let me know."

Boxing? UFC? We eagerly await McGregor's next move.
