There wasn't an upset. The boxing champion with a perfect record knocked his opponent out, a UFC champion. Everyone went home richer - the fighters with the cash, and the audience with the experience.
To all those who said @TheNotoriousMMA won't even last 1 round, he went through 10!!!! A legend & an epitome of self belief. Hats off man 👍— Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) August 27, 2017

Except for Arjun Rampal, who wasn't really happy with what he saw. He was a part of the New York crowd.
However, Twitter had its share of fun with many memes which came out of this fight. Here are some of the best ones:
The million-dollar paychecks were a point of discussion before the fight, and rightly they were a point of discussion after the fight too.
Some were even reminded of an iconic Hollywood moment during the fight.
Which then became a dig towards Twilight, like it always does...
And then there were those boxing fans with their 'I told you so' reaction to an undefeated boxing champion beating a UFC champion.
This beautifully imagined introduction to a Guy Ritchie movie...
All in all, it was a good night for everyone, and we can now probably give our due respect to both fighters for walking the talk.
