Conor McGregor didn’t get the victory over Floyd Mayweather he wanted, but he wasn’t going to let that stop him from partying like a champion:

McGregor took to the mic to tell the crowd at his after-party:
“It didn’t turn out the way we wanted but we can still party like it did.”
This is probably the right approach when you sell out a huge after-party and everyone turns up after you lost. Got to keep things upbeat even though everyone is upset. Honestly, who are we kidding? Loss or not, McGregor went from being an MMA superstar to an international superstar overnight because of the fight. He did better than most people expected, and you’ve got to respect the hustle.
