Floyd Mayweather takes Conor McGregor’s TKO loss to Dustin Poirier as a chance to remind Conor he stole his style, is a ‘Con Artist,’ and will be remembered as ‘McLoser’.
One of the biggest stars in combat–if not the biggest–is Conor McGregor, who is without a doubt the UFC’s number one cash cow. Nobody in the business sells more pay-per-views, tickets, or merchandise like McGregor.
In the past few years, he has amassed a mountain of wealth from his business deals and his fight with Floyd Mayweather that has kept him busy. His first return after his boxing match resulted in a loss to Khabib, before he fought again last year and won against Cowboy. Unfortunately, this past weekend, he took another loss, which also resulted in his first TKO. With that outcome brought the typical takes that he’s washed up or doesn’t love the game anymore. That’s for someone else to decide–but Floyd Mayweather took the time to chime in on Conor as a person and kick him while he was down.
Floyd took to social media to remind the world Conor stole his entire brand and brought it to the UFC and got rich while getting praise. When Floyd did the same thing, he was trashed and talked down upon and even experienced racism. Mayweather even pointed out he never lost so not only is Conor a ‘ConArtist,’ but he’s also a ‘McLoser.’
The boxing champ posted a picture of the two on his Instagram that asks why he is “hated for the way he carries himself” when Conor is usually celebrated for his boastful persona.
“I seen this post and my take on it is that the world knows Con Artist McLoser can steal everything from me and be loved but I’m hated,” expressed Mayweather.
“That just lets you all know that racism still exist. Just know, that bum will never be me or be on my level. I’m just built different, my mindset is on another planet, my skills are second to none, I’m a natural born winner and yes I talk a lot of trash, but every time I back it up!”
Floyd continued on, writing that even people from his own community don’t respect him.
“This is what they hate. It’s sad that you can be a poor black kid from the ghetto that has dealt with racism your whole life and work extremely hard to put yourself and your family in a better position, and most of the hate come from my own people,” he added.
“Connor cannot even win in his own sport, but talking about coming back to boxing to fight Pacquiao. Nobody wants to see that, it’s like my leftovers eating leftovers.”
What do YOU think. Does he have a point here?
