Las Vegas police are ramping up security ahead of Saturday night’s highly anticipated fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor Mcgregor.

Officials are on high alert amid fears of a potential knife or truck attack on the city’s famous strip.

This comes after an ISIS propaganda video featuring images of Vegas hotels and casinos released in May.

Hundreds of steel posts will be installed along the strip to help prevent a truck attack, while hotel staff have been advised to report any suspicious activity.

Hundreds of thousands of fight fans and tourists are expected to be in Las Vegas for one of the busiest weekends of the year.

The big event is set to take place Saturday night at the T-mobile arena.

    I heard, that McGregor held out until the 10th round, and was defeated in a TKO, not a KO. I’d say he did well. Perhaps with a little more training and conditioning, he would not have gotten exhausted.

    I hope Merriweather gets beat into a coma.

    So who won?

    Here it is the day after the fight – who won?

    • tedlv

    As has been said many times, the price of liberty is eternal vigilance, and people like devil-worshipping Islam, Antifa, Black Lies Matter, Seditious Purveyors of Licentious Communism and so forth are abject slaves of the devil carrying out his anger over the shortness of time (Revelation 12:12) before he is confined to Gei-Hinnom, the lake of fire made for him and his fellow demons (Matthew 25:41).

    Yet the Master Yahusha (Lord Jesus) still holds out His offer of forgiveness and everlasting life as a citizen of Yahuwah Avinu’s (our Father’s) Kingdom to whomever will repent of wickedness and our natural inclination to do evil and accept His makeover of our lives by which He qualifies us for everlasting life.

    Blessed are all those who turn to the Master Yahusha, forsaking what we have been for what He is zealous to make of those willing to do so, amein.

    Love this article! Nothing about sports, sportsmanship, physical competition, competitive spirit, odds on winner/ loser, boxers’ histories, or anything positive.

    Just riot bait.

    Nice job, Antifa!

  • R A.

    Yep, you know antifa and blm will be out there sporting their violent, animalistic tactics.

  • deadandwicked

    I Love OAN’s Comment Policy, It Basically says don’t be Anit-Fa or Liberal or Far Left. Those are the things they Bait people with.

    • A marcus Young

      Exactly, If you don’t have a point, don’t say anything. That is the liberal left
