Conor McGregor enhanced his brand with his showing because he's tough, smart and was in with the ideal guy from the standpoint of extending the bout.
But there were revelations in the southpaw's post-fight press conference which suggested he may have been underprepared.
He may have lost his much-hyped fight with Floyd Mayweather, but to his legion of fans Conor McGregor will always be a victor. "I'd buy that PPV in a heartbeat".
In truth, on the evidence of Saturday, you wouldn't even fancy McGregor in a contest against the far less talented Malignaggi. This was McGregor's first boxing match, but his UFC record stands at 21-3, with 18 KO's.
The UFC took to their official Twitter page to comment on the situation, writing, "[UFC Fight Pass] customers: "Due to overwhelming traffic you may be experiencing log in issues. Still, he gets to laugh all the way to the bank.
The most anticipated fight in some time, Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather, was delayed slightly due to pay-per-view technical issues.
"Most fighters, when they get booed, they either feed off it or it breaks them", he said. On paper, it looked like a scam.
In a fight so intriguing that it cost $10,000 for ringside seats, McGregor turned in a respectable performance for someone in his first fight. And, strangely enough, ultimately satisfying.
McGregor started strong against Mayweather in Saturday's boxing superfight at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Because Floyd pushed the fight he got hit more than we're used to seeing. "I didn't have to come back" said Mayweather.
"I'm sure in his mind, Mayweather thinks he has broken my brother's record by beating McGregor, but in my heart and mind, his record is still be intact". He was adamant, in fact.
Whether the megafight will be the richest of all-time, as promoters predicted, is still to be determined but Mayweather left no doubt of his place in the pantheon of boxing alltime greats in what he declared was his last fight.
"I've quadrupled my net worth in one-half a fight", he said. "But I'm not a damn fool. LeBron James was on my row and I could see Leonardo DiCaprio". I don't care. Like, I work my ass off. Ultimately though, McGregor's lack of boxing prowess shined through. "And I have the pictures to prove it!" "I feel like I owed that to the fans for the Pacquiao fight".
McGregor joked that he'd be hiring a bunch of sharks to count all the money he just made. But he's laughing all the way to the bank. He can do whatever the hell he wants in the ring, in the octagon, and in the fight business.
"I'm very proud of our crew and very proud of Robert", Marnell said. "I have many options in mixed martial arts".
Moreover, in a sport where Blacks and Hispanics are the majority of champions, the possibility of a major White boxing champion was also appealing. That's something to be proud of.
"It was a good fight. And [Saturday] was a damn good fight".
Even then, McGregor was looking forward, and not just at what might bring him into the ring next. He beat his way out of what would have arguably been the biggest upset in sports history.
