MMA fans were taken by pleasant surprise as news of boxing’s unmatched talent Floyd Mayweather willing to hand over his gold mine to Conor McGregor rocked the digital world. Money offered to give the Notorious some serious training sessions at boxing club at Las Vegas. Mayweather suggested that this would help him prune his talent and dust off his cage rust, so that he could face off the frightening Khabib Nurmagomedov without any fears.
And it seems that the Irishman was not pleased with his ostentatious behaviour.
In fact, McGregor’s hyped up response indicates that he hasn’t still gotten over his humiliation at the hands of Floyd Mayweather.
The Irishman didn’t hesitate to display his notorious nature on Twitter by bombarding Mayweather with profane words, a signature trait of the former two-division champion.
While talking to the media, the pro league boxer showed his interest in attending the upcoming explosive fight between Mystic Mac and Nurmagomedov. Mayweather also said that he would love to have McGregor practice at his boxing club in Las Vegas. Last year on August 26 the two bests from MMA and boxing locked horns inside the boxing ring as McGregor embraced his most honorable defeat in the 10th round.
They say time heals all wounds. However, this doesn’t seem to hold true for the Irishman, as he soon took to Twitter to respond to Mayweather’s offer – that too in an obnoxious manner.
This is what he had to say in response to Mayweather offering him riches,
Fuck the Mayweathers, except Senior and Roger.
There is no peace here kid.
Step up or step down.
— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) August 29, 2018
“F**k the Mayweathers except Senior and Roger. There is no peace here, kid.
While Conor was clear that he didn’t intend to insult Mayweather’s father or uncle, the Mystic Mac went on to add,
“Step up or step down.”
Though it is not the first time that the 30-year-old artist has surprised his fans and public with his impulsive behaviour, the feud will stay in media’s limelight for a long time to come. Whether Mystic Mac would live up to his persona by surprising us with a quick victory over the Russian in the upcoming UFC 229 is yet to be seen; however, what is apparent that Floyd Mayweather and McGregor, one-time nemesis, won’t be patching up to defeat the undefeated Nurmagomedov.
