Conor McGregor: Floyd Mayweather has strong tools for MMA

McGregor gives Mayweather a lot of praise in his first post fight social media post.

Congrats to Floyd on a well fought match. Very experienced and methodical in his work. I wish him well in retirement.
He is a heck of a boxer. His experience, his patience and his endurance won him this fight hands down. I always told him he was not a
fighter but a boxer. But sharing the ring with him he is certainly a solid fighter. Strong in the clinch. Great understanding of frames
and head position. He has some very strong tools he could bring into an MMA game for sure.
If the 6.5 million pay per view buy number is correct, Conor will have been part of the biggest boxing and biggest MMA pay per views
And Floyd will have been a part of the 4 biggest pay per views of all time.
