McGregor and Mayweather Start Feuding Again
A feud has erupted between McGregor and Mayweather once again, with the pair of fighters exchanging insults over social media this week. The spat seems to have started following comments made by Floyd Mayweather in an interview. Initially, his comments were innocent and even complimented McGregor. However, things soon got heated with the pair insulting one another.
Mayweather Comments Anger McGregor
Mayweather made the comments in an interview with TMZ. He was speaking about the upcoming UFC fight between McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229. Mayweather admitted he was not really in a position to make a prediction, because he had never seen Nurmagomedov fight, but he did share some thoughts on McGregor. He said that the Irishman is a very tough competitor and is not going to back down from the fight. Mayweather added that he is a warrior who isn’t scared of everyone.
Everything seemed fine up to this point. However, then Mayweather extended an invitation to McGregor. The boxing champion said that while he knows the UFC has a training facility, he’d love for McGregor to come and train at the Mayweather Boxing Club. This is the comment that didn’t go down well with McGregor who hit back and tweeted “F— the Mayweathers, except Senior and Roger. There is no peace here kid. Step up or step down.”
McGregor-Mayweather Rematch Still on People’s Minds
Following McGregor’s tweet, Mayweather hit back on Instagram, sharing a picture of their fight with the caption “Easiest 9 figures I ever made. All work is what.” Mayweather even tried to get his supports to jump in on the action, encouraging them to share a photo from the fight and their own captions for ‘Whoop Connor Wednesday.’
This latest feud will likely only increase the hype for a potential rematch between the two. There have been rumors that the pair may have their next fight in the UFC Octagon. Should that happen, McGregor would be the overwhelming favorite for the fight. Mayweather has hinted at the possibility in the past and said that he was beginning MMA training. We’re sure McGregor would also love the chance to avenge his loss in the boxing ring.
