After hearing McGregor once again promised to knock out a man that's never been beaten, Mayweather challenged McGregor to put his money where his mouth is. "Hell no. You f-king weasel". He looks like a little breakdancer or something. And it wasn't backstage saying, 'Hey, I'm doing it for the good of the show.' The reality is you see what some athletes - whether combat sports or otherwise - the need to invent enemies and invent opponents to motivate. You're a [expletive] [expletive].
Many deemed McGregor's "dancing monkeys" comment as a direct reference to the fighters sparring in Apollo Creed's "Tough Gym" in Los Angeles, who were all black. Cut the champ's mic off? "Mark my words", said McGregor about Mayweather.
On Tuesday, McGregor's attempts to answer Mayweather's slams were muted.
Two stops remain on the world tour and Espinoza has hinted that he may yet seize the opportunity to retort although, given McGregor's way with words, that may not be the best idea.
Instead of exploding over Conor's comments, Mayweather dismissed the media's fascination with McGregor's choice wording.
"You owe money", McGregor retorted, referring to Mayweather's tax problems that were reported earlier this month.
There are widespread rumours that Floyd Mayweather can not read and The Notorious used this to add fuel to the fire. He'll turn 41 years old in February. "Dress your [expletive] age". Carrying a school bag on stage? "You're carrying a schoolbag on stage". Along with being a member of the WWE Hall of Fame, the longtime casino owner has hosted and promoted major events in both boxing and mixed martial arts.
"Shout out to all the stripper b-ches on his payroll". McGregor said. "Dance for me, boy!". "Dance for me!" McGregor said. He said,"He's in an [expletive] track suit", McGregor said". "We're not talking about being at the top one year, two years, three years, four years". A stoic Floyd Mayweather did not look perturbed and said,"I still got it. Twenty-one is the number". B-ch I do numbers. UFC President Dana White and Mayweather Promotions front man Leonard Ellerbe both have smiles plastered from ear to ear once their respective mouthpieces get wound up because they truly know the score that is unfolding before them.
The McGregor fans will buy this fight.
