With Manny Pacquiao cruising to a decision over Jessie Vargas recently, there’s talk of a rematch with Floyd Mayweather… but someone else is in the running. That someone is UFC superstar Conor McGregor.
TMZ recently caught up with Floyd and ticked him off when a cameraman referred to McGregor as the “Floyd Mayweather of MMA”. Floyd fired back, downplaying Conor’s achievements, while saying: “I’m an elephant. An elephant don’t beef with ants. An elephant is so large he don’t even see ants”.
Well, McGregor as a response.
“Floyd’s not ready for this. Much respect to Floyd. He’s a solid businessman on what he’s been able to do, he’s a f*cking animal at what he’s been able to do. But as far as real fighting, as far as true pure unarmed combat, Floyd don’t want none of this,” McGregor declared.
From there, he even named a dollar amount that he’d be willing to fight Mayweather for. “He wants a boxing match, he doesn’t want a fight,” McGregor said. “I want $100 million cash to fight him under boxing rules. He’s afraid of a real fight.”
