With every decision comes a consequence and for those fighters who took part in battle at the Money Fight event this past Saturday night in Las Vegas Nevada at T-Mobile Arena, it’s their time to faces those consequences in the form of medical suspensions.

As a result of the fight, UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor has been suspended for two months due to his 10th-round knockout loss to boxing legend Floyd Mayweather. The event’s main card aired live on Showtime pay-per-view while two preliminary bouts aired on FOX.

The UFC lightweight champion was stopped by the boxing legend with a flurry of punches at the 1:05 mark of the 10th frame after a strong early performance. This marked McGregor’s first loss as a professional boxer. On the flip side, Mayweather escaped without a suspension for his retirement fight, which brought his overall record to 50-0.
