McGregor rips into Mayweather over Jake Paul brawl

Conor McGregor has mocked former opponent Floyd Mayweather for his brawl with YouTuber turned boxer Jake Paul.

Mayweather is set to return to the ring for an exhibition bout against Jake’s brother Logan Paul. While Logan hasn’t had a whole lot of boxing experience outside of his two fights against KSI, Jake is 3-0 with his most recent win coming against former UFC welterweight Ben Askren.

McGregor questions Mayweather’s motives

Last night, in the wake of Mayweather’s press conference with Logan, a brawl ensued between Jake and Floyd that ended in Jake Paul stealing his hat. Yep.

The whole incident was captured by the cameras and posted all over social media, so naturally, Conor was always going to have some thoughts about it.

“Hey @leonardellerbe, what the f*** is Floyd at? The kid curled up, didn’t fight back once, and Floyd is still running around acting the tough guy.” McGregor wrote on Instagram.

“The kid actually just pulled this shambles of a situation Floyd is in out of the drain for him. He should thank him. It’s embarrassing! Pro to pro it’s embarrassing.

“He will not scratch 10m for this fight and he knows it. It was cancelled once already. The world is watching this on Twitter. He’d fight a half decent pro and command 20m upwards, yet its this s***. Whatever way you spin this, it’s sad. Fight someone for real, on your record, or f*** off mate. Slap head!”

McGregor went toe to toe with Mayweather back in 2017 in a showdown that still serves as the biggest crossover event in combat sports history.

Some have wondered whether or not they’d ever do it again, but based on their respective trajectories, that seems unlikely.

Mayweather will continue to prepare for the challenge of Logan Paul whereas McGregor has a trilogy meeting with Dustin Poirier to worry about in July.
