Fight fans flexed their muscles hours before the main event between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor.

After the fight – won by Mayweather with a 10th-round knockout – a similar celebration took place outside T-Mobile Arena on the Las Vegas Strip.

"It was history today,” said one fan. “I met Mr. (Floyd Mayweather) Senior in Walgreens, then I just watched his son knock somebody out."

"Conor McGregor fan here disappointed ... What can he do? He's not a boxer."

The line at Nine Fine Irishmen at New York New York had McGregor fans flocking from Ireland to take a jab at Mayweather.

"It's going to change history because he is going to beat Mayweather and he is the all-time champion," claimed one McGregor fan before the bout.

But boxing fans at T-Mobile Arena say there's only one man packing a punch.

After Mayweather's big win, even fans who didn't get to see the fight first-hand were anticipating the news.

"Mayweather could have knocked him out a lot earlier; he played along because he gave the fans money worth," one observer said.

While McGregor may have lost, his fans are still happy he got this far.
