The UFC on Fox 22 card on Sunday featured an undefeated Conor McGregor and a rematch of the fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor.
It was the first time in the UFC’s 21-year history that McGregor and Mayweather had met, and was the main event of the card on ESPN2.
It also was the fight that many fans were waiting for.
But on Sunday, a fight that had already been on the cards for a year ended up happening in the same evening on ESPN3.
The UFC announced McGregor vs. Mayweather and it had been the most-watched fight on the show, drawing a combined 7.5 million viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research.
The show also was one of the most watched fights on cable TV, drawing 5.4 million viewers.
The main event featured McGregor vs Mayweather, who had just returned from his four-fight win streak, ending a 12-year drought in which the undefeated Irishman had not lost a fight since his win over Mayweather in December 2015.
It’s a fight Mayweather is well-known for, and he will likely return to fight McGregor at some point in the future.
But the two fighters also have different styles, with McGregor taking an aggressive style while Mayweather takes more of a passive approach.
McGregor was able to capitalize on Mayweather’s inability to finish a fight with knockout power.
McGregor used a jab to get Mayweather off balance, which helped him knock him out of the match.
But McGregor also used his left hook to get the better of Mayweather, and the result was a split decision.
“You’d be an an idiot not to watch that,” Mayweather told reporters before the fight.
“It was one I’ve been preparing for for years.”
Mayweather is also a former professional boxer, and as he said after the fight, he wants to win the belt, but he also wants to beat McGregor.
“I know Conor’s a good fighter, but I don’t want to fight him again,” Mayweather said.
“But you have to beat him in the ring.
He’s a phenomenal fighter.
But I’m the guy that has the belt.”
The main draw of the show was the return of two former UFC champions, Rafael dos Anjos and Rashad Evans.
They were joined by Nate Diaz, who will face the former champion in the main bout.
The three were joined at the start of the night by fellow fighters Joe Lauzon and Alistair Overeem.
Both fighters were on their way to winning their first titles in the promotion.
McGregor, who was in his first fight since he knocked out Floyd Mayweather in March, is the only fighter to win two UFC belts in a single fight.
He also holds the WEC title, which he has since relinquished.
The winner of the event will face former champion Benson Henderson in the featherweight title fight on June 7.
The other fight in the night featured a rematch between former UFC lightweight champion Jose Aldo and UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor, a rematch which was supposed to take place in December.
Instead, the bout was cancelled, with Aldo claiming McGregor took his featherweight belt.
“A fight like that is never on the horizon for me,” McGregor said.
Aldo, who is known for his aggressive style, has won four straight in the division, and will face McGregor in his next fight.
