Las Vegas morning update for Sunday, August 27th — VIDEO

Here are your Sunday morning headlines:

1. 50-0. Floyd Mayweather beat Conor McGregor by knockout in the 10th round Saturday night. McGregor impressed in early round with speed and flurries of punches, but stamina won the day and Mayweather hit his stride in the eighth round. Many celebrities were seen around the arena, including LeBrown James, Mike Tyson, Steve Harvey and more. The fight didn’t start without controversy. Several anxious customers complained when the UFC website went down and customers ordering pay-per-view couldn’t finalize their purchase. Showtime said they would delay the start of the fight, and the fight began shortly after 9 p.m.

2. A fire at the Westgate was quickly extinguished Saturday. Clark County fire responded to the scene around 5:50 p.m. and the Westgate reported that the fire was out by 6:30 p.m. Officials say the fire started on an electrical room on the 12th floor.

3. Former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman is known for always having a martini in hand. But what does that mean for taxpayers, who are funding a security team that’s often asked to bring Goodman his favorite drink? And does Goodman’s persona violate the Convention Authority’s drug and alcohol policy?
