After indulging in weeks of vicious verbal sparring, Logan Paul and Floyd Mayweather finally faced off in a rather meek affair that resulted in an outcome that has left fans feeling "robbed."

As a result, Twitter was abuzz with a barrage of reactions, most of which came in the form of hilarious memes.
