Somebody (presumably Irish?) vandalized a Floyd Mayweather billboard with a flag and '49-1'

Conor McGregor’s fans have showed up in droves in Las Vegas for tonight’s “Money Fight” against Floyd Mayweather, and it’s clear they are not in town just to take part.

They’re taking over.

The scene following Friday’s weigh-ins turned into bedlam with an impromptu rally. And it seems somebody (presumably Irish?) took things a step further by vandalizing a billboard advertising “The Money Team,” Mayweather’s lifestyle brand, along the I-15 freeway in Las Vegas.

Here’s some pretty cool drone footage, via @powersimagery on Instagram:

We’re not sure how long the Irish flag and “49-1” remained up there, but the local CBS affiliate reports the vandalism was “quickly fixed.”

McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) and Mayweather (49-0 boxing) face off tonight at T-Mobile Arena in a pay-per-view event expected to be the most lucrative prize fight of all time.

This will all be a bad look if McGregor fails to shock the world.
