Despite the fact that a fight between them will likely never happen, Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather continue to throw verbal punches at one another. On Monday, Mayweather went on a five-minute rant about McGregor, which he wrapped up by saying, "I’m an elephant. An elephant don’t beef with ants. An elephant is so large he don’t even see ants." That's a pretty good line. McGregor responded to that by saying that the retired boxer should "say that to my face."
McGregor wasn't finished, either. On Tuesday night, he showed that he still had Mayweather on his mind by hijacking the mic from the DJ's booth at New York City nightclub 1 Oak and talking trash about the boxer. You can see his rant in the clip above, courtesy of TMZ Sports. "Floyd's not ready for this," McGregor said. "Much respect to Floyd. He's a solid businessman on what he's been able to do, he's a fucking 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."
From there, McGregor cited an actual dollar amount that he'd need to crossover sports and get in the ring with Floyd. "He wants a boxing match, he doesn't want a fight," he said. "I want $100 million cash to fight him under boxing rules. He's afraid of a real fight."
As astronomical as that figure sounds, Manny Pacquiao banked a reported $160 million for his fight against Mayweather. So it's probably not as crazy as you think. Still, we don't think there's any chance of this ever happening. Oh well, it's just as fun to watch them constantly trash talk to each other, right?
