Twitter Goes Into Meme-Overdrive After Mayweather-McGregor Bout


The dust had barely even settled on the epic contest between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather but the Twitter army was out in force, showering the world of social media with up-to-the-second memes.

Some were brilliant, others less so. I’ve scoured the internet to bring you a few of the best ones kicking about.

There were a few themes that kept coming up, time and again, like how when McGregor took Mayweather’s back, it bore a striking resemblance to the iconic scene from Titanic.

Another popular meme picked up on the fact that The Simpsons appeared to have predicted the future again

To be fair, Conor was in better shape than Homer…

One made the back-hug into a Love Island themed picture…

Someone noticed that the snot that was dislodged when Mayweather clocked McGregor bore an uncanny resembelence to the Nike logo…

There was always going to be a crying-Jordan meme, although this one poked fun at the entire nation of Ireland…

And last but not least, a taking-to-school meme. This one is actually kind of sweet…

Mayweather decided to walk off into the sunset undefeated after racking up his 50th professional win. Speaking at the post-fight press conference, Mayweather announced: “I chose the right dance partner for my last dance…this was my final fight.” He will go down in history as one of the greatest boxers to ever lace up the gloves.

As for McGregor, he plans to get back inside the Octagon for his next bout, although he wasn’t exactly sure when that would be.
