McGregor vs Mayweather: MMA became very popular in the 2000s. Before that time, boxing had dominated the world of fighting. Now, cage matches are all the rage. At one point during the late 90s and early 2000s people though that boxing would fade away in obscurity. There just wasn’t any super champion fighters around on the level of Ali, Tyson or Foreman. Even though that was the case, Mayweather had emerged to become the number one fighter of this era.
