Conor McGregor Completely Shuts Down Floyd Mayweather Over Racism In Sports Claims

Conor McGregor Floyd Mayweather

Conor McGregor responding in typical fashion.

Floyd Mayweather went on a racist rant at Conor McGregor at the start of the year, stating that the only reason people liked Conor and his cocky persona and not Mayweather was because Conor was white. I guess he was conveniently forgetting stuff like the fact that he had beaten up women as to why people might not like him.

Anyway, Conor was conspicuous in his absence of a reply, as he’s normally one of the first people to get up in people’s faces when they’re talking shit about him. However, it turns out he was just biding his time and he absolutely shut down Mayweather with this Instagram post he dropped over the weekend:

1. Rolling Stone, thank you for putting me as one of your top 25 sex symbols of 2015! My Mother will be delighted and proud! 2. ESPN, FOX, BT Sports, MMA Fighting, Yahoo, MMA Junkie and Sherdog thank you all for awarding me fighter of the year 2015! I appreciate all the hardworking media and their love and commitment to the sport is truly valued. 3. Fighters Only MMA Awards, thank you for the nominations for Fighter of the Year, KO of the Year, International Fighter of the year. I will be in Las Vegas to attend the event and collect all my awards. 4. 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. 5. Media instigators/An Garda Siochana. I apologise for having the air-soft in public. I was simply rehearsing for a potential upcoming film role. I understand that the more traffic a story can get the more revenue it generates. So I understand and respect that the media must create these stories and these situations even if at times it is at other people’s expense. We’ve all got to eat. And I eat well. So I will not complain. 6. My next fight. What can I say, it’s just another night of easy work for me. I don’t just own the game. I run it too.

Well, he certainly didn’t mince his words there did he? If you missed the crucial passage because there’s so much text and he’s addressing so many issues there, then we’ve highlighted it below for you:

Yeah exactly, shut down. The ball’s in Mayweather’s court now but we all know that a fight between those two is never ever going to happen, I wish they would stop dancing around it so much already because it’s just ridiculous and is just getting everyone hyped up for something that is never going to happen.

We all know who would win anyway, and if you don’t then check out McGregor’s highlight reel. That should leave you in no doubt.
