John Kavanagh, the head coach of UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor, has broken his silence following McGregor’s loss on Saturday night.
In Las Vegas, McGregor made his professional boxing debut and fought boxing legend Floyd “Money” Mayweather.
The UFC champion looked impressive throughout the fight. McGregor even managed to win the early rounds against Mayweather. As the fight went on, Mayweather began to pick up momentum. In round 10, McGregor became fatigues which allowed Mayweather to land numerous shots. Eventually, the referee stepped in and awarded Mayweather the TKO victory.
Shortly after McGregor’s loss, Kavanagh shared his thoughts on Twitter.
“Trained our hardest and gave it our best shot. Came up short this time but we’ll be back. Win or Learn,” Kavanagh wrote.
