Despite all of the inflammatory things that were said beforehand, Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor have showed nothing but respect for one another after making a boatload of money from their boxing match on Aug. 26. As expected, Mayweather defeated the debuting McGregor by 10th-round TKO. But all parties involved had nothing to be sad about considering that massive paydays both made in a boxing match between the two biggest stars in combat sports.
Mayweather took that mutual respect a step further by adorning the walls of his recently purchased Beverly Hills mansion with a giant painting of both himself and the UFC lightweight champion. The 50-0 fighter showed off the 8-foot tall portrait on social media.

Mayweather purchased the $25.5 million mansion as a gift to himself after raking in a disclosed $100 million for his bout against McGregor with much more to come once the PPV buys are tallied up. So it is only right that Mayweather salute the man who helped him bring in another nine-figure payday.
The mansion sits on more than half an acre and clocks in at 15,096 square feet. There’s a guest home, pool house and a swimming pool on the property. With all that space to fill, a painting of McGregor certainly won’t hurt.
With Mayweather heading back to retirement, McGregor will return to the UFC. His next fight has yet to be announced, but according to UFC president Dana White, a rumored Dec. 30 rematch with Nate Diaz isn’t in the cards.
“Not true AT ALL,” White tweeted in response to a user who suggested that the trilogy would conclude in Las Vegas at the UFC’s year-end event. Apparently, with McGregor making so much money after facing Mayweather, he may not be in such a rush to return to training camp.
