McGregor's UFC record is now 21-3, but he still stands as one of the most popular fighters active today. You're a fan of my shit.
It's amusing because it's true.
Some boxing fans said they don't plan on buying the fight themselves on pay-per-view, because they view Mayweather, an undefeated professional boxer, as such an overwhelming favorite over McGregor, a fighter that's never been in a professional boxing match.
Wearing the custom-made suit he abused Mayweather for coming to the press conference in a tracksuit. What a square - right?
It's unclear whether the IRS has tried to withhold on Mayweather's purse from the fight against McGregor.
Mayweather added: "I don't know what the game-plan is, I'll have to speak to my father [his trainer, Floyd Mayweather Sr]". "I'm absolutely honored to be here before you and give you this great spectacle". The problem is McGregor might have taken it a step too far by saying, "Dance for me, boy!" when Mayweather was shadowboxing onstage.
"They fought way before me and haven't fought since".
If the MMA star Conor McGregor wanted to beat Mayweather in August, Roach says, he now had a blueprint for how it's possible: pressure, roughhouse, engage - basically what Horn did to Pacquiao, turning a boxing match into something closer to a brawl. McGregor wore a suit that was pinstriped with dozens of "fuck you's" and clowned Mayweather for wearing a track suit.
However, according to a notice of a federal tax lien filed by the IRS in the United States, the man nicknamed "Money" owes $22.2 million (£17.3 million) in taxes from the nine-figure sum he earned in his fight against Manny Pacquiao in 2015.
While McGregor will strain to land a legitimate hand upon even a 40-year-old Mayweather in the ring, the Irishman is a force to be reckoned with on the dais.
"I would invade his favela on horseback, and would kill anyone who wasn't fit to work, but we're in a new time, so I'll whoop his ass instead".
Floyd Mayweather Junior and Conor McGregor have been at each other's throats recently, as the pair was involved in their joint promotional tour yesterday in Los Angeles to hype their fight in Las Vegas.
With all the drama on display at this first round of verbal jabs between the two fighters though - all some could do was shake their head...
