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.
