Even the Fight of the Century wasn't exempt from an inevitable onslaught of memes, poking fun and ridicule.
Social media erupted with hilarious pictures mocking Conor McGregor after his historic defeat to Floyd Mayweather, the MailOnline reported.
He brutalized McGregor in the 10th round, landing numerous shots and chasing McGregor around the ring until referee Robert Byrd saved the Irishman and stopped the fight.
Clutching a bottle of his own brand whisky "Notorious", which he said was "coming soon", McGregor appeared to take defeat in his stride during the post-fight press conference.
"I'm going to take over the Irish whiskey market - and this is delicious!"
He added: "It was a hell of a fight. I would have liked to have seen the end of the 10th.
"I have this patch where I must overcome - I get a little wobbly - but it's more fatigue ... I would have liked to have seen the end of round 10 and seen where it brought us.
"You've got to take your hat off to Floyd. It was a good fight. It was a bit of fun, right?"
He added that he thought the referee had done a "great job" despite believing the fight had been called off 'a bit too early', but still respected the decision.
Mayweather said after the fight: "He's a tough competitor. I think we gave the fans what they wanted to see.
"Our game plan was to take our time, let him shoot all his heavy shots early and then take him out at the end down the stretch.
"I gave the fans what they wanted to see. I told them that I owed them for the Pacquiao fight. I must come straight ahead and give them a show."
He then shockingly announced: "I chose the right dance partner for my last dance ... this was my final fight."
