The Floyd Mayweather/Conor McGregor promotional tour made a stop at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Thursday night, and unlike the first two promo tour stops earlier this week, McGregor was a lot more subdued during this one.
McGregor did what McGregor has done every step of the way during the promo tour and took a bunch of shots at Mayweather, with most of those shots directed at Mayweather’s recent money troubles. At one point during the event, McGregor handed Mayweather a copy of Jay Z’s new 4:44 album and told him to listen to it and learn how to build "a real empire":
But McGregor didn’t just take shots at Mayweather this time around. He also let off a couple rounds at 50 Cent, Mayweather’s on-again, off-again BFF, for whatever reason. While once again addressing Mayweather’s current financial situation, McGregor had some harsh words for 50:
"50 Cent is a bitch," he yelled. "You and 50 are two fake money bitches. He’s bankrupt, and you’re about to be."
50 was tied up on Thursday making an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live and promoting his show, Power. But of course, word got back to him about what McGregor said, and he didn’t let it go unnoticed. 50 Cent took to Instagram and responded by posting this:
"What the fuck wrong wit this white boy," 50 wrote, "you fighting Floyd not me fool. LOL"
A few hours later, he took it a step further by responding again while simultaneously pushing Power. He posted a photo of McGregor tapping out against Nate Diaz along with a caption that said, "Power about to get emotional so try not to get choked up":
"Ain't no tapping out over here LOL," he wrote.
And he continued throughout the day on Friday by putting up additional Instagram posts like this:
50 also spoke briefly about his relationship with Mayweather on Kimmel and said that he plans to be ringside for his fight with McGregor next month:
50 actually gave McGregor some props during his interview with Jimmy Kimmel and said that he thinks McGregor has a small chance to beat Mayweather. But we doubt he would say that again after hearing what McGregor said about him on Thursday. And if 50 does show up for the fight, we’d look for him to do whatever it takes to try and get inside of McGregor’s head in the moments leading up to the match.
