Last night, Dustin Poirier knocked out Conor McGregor in the second round of their main card fight on UFC 257. Back in 2017, near the height of McGregor’s fighting career, the undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather defeated McGregor in the 10th round of a boxing bout by TKO. After McGregor’s most recent loss, Mayweather laid into the UFC champion on social media.
“I seen this post and my take on it is,” Floyd Mayweather commented on the post. “The world knows Con Artist McLoser can steal everything from me and be loved but I’m hated. That just lets you all know that racism still exists. Just know, that bum will never be me or be on my level. I’m just built different, my mindset is on another planet, my skills are second to none, I’m a natural-born winner and yes I talk a lot of trash, but every time I back it up.”
Both Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather have made a name for themselves for their trash-talking. Make no mistake, both back up their words with their hands, but very few can hold a toe to their level of insults.
Floyd Mayweather on Conor McGregor Return to Boxing
After Floyd Mayweather defeated Conor McGregor in the 10th round of their 2017 bout, the two have considered a rematch.
However, Mayweather doesn’t seem too keen on the idea now. In 2015, Mayweather defeated Manny Pacquiao in the most highest-grossing boxing match of all time. Now, Conor McGregor and Pacquiao have talked about doing a similar boxing match. Needless to say, Mayweather does not love that idea.
“Connor cannot even win in his own sport, but talking about coming back to boxing to fight Pacquiao. Nobody wants to see that, it’s like my leftovers eating leftovers.”
Floyd Mayweather retired from boxing back after his bout with McGregor. He remains undefeated in his career. However, he still remains open to some exhibitions offered to him. For instance, YouTuber Jake Paul scheduled a fight with Mayweather after knocking out Nate Robinson in the preliminary fight to the Roy Jones Jr. fight with Mike Tyson.
