Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. stopped Conor McGregor Saturday in the 10th round of their much-hyped superfight, though both combatants were winners in terms of paydays.

Also making many millions on the bout were Showtime and cable carriers, as the pay-per-view event was expected to (and surely did) shatter revenue records. But not everyone who watched the match ponied up for a ticket or a PPV — there were tons of illegal live streams shared on various social media platforms.

That fact made frugal users on Twitter delighted to have seen “Money” without spending any.


Read a sample of those grateful for the illegal freebie:
