IFWT_McGregor Mayweather

Recently Floyd Mayweather brought up racism in boxing and he used UFC champion Conor McGregor as an example.  Mayweather noted that McGregor talks a lot of trash and is praised for it while he is usually crucified and called “cocky and arrogant”.  Well McGregor wasn’t happy about being part of the discussion and fired back at Mayweather.

McGregor responded in a long Instagram post thanking Rolling Stone and several networks for their coverage then addressed Mayweather saying:

Floyd Mayweather, don’t ever bring race into my success again. I am an Irishman. My people have been oppressed our entire existence. And still very much are. I understand the feeling of prejudice. It is a feeling that is deep in my blood.

In my family’s long history of warfare there was a time where just having the name ‘McGregor’ was punishable by death.
Do not ever put me in a bracket like this again.
If you want we can organise a fight no problem.
I will give you a fair 80/20 split purse in my favour seen as your last fight bombed at every area of revenue.

At 27 years of age I now hold the key to this game.
The game answers to me now.
