Floyd Mayweather took to social media on Wednesday to mock the MMA and UFC superstar Conor McGregor, calling him “Conor McTapout.”
The two have been going at each other over social media and in the news over the past several weeks with no fight between the two to show for it.
Mayweather took to Instagram on Wednesday night to post a video of Conor McGregor tapping out to Nate Diaz from their fight back in March at UFC 196. The caption read, “CAPTION THIS! Best caption wins $10,000.00. The winner will be announced on Monday, Dec 19. Stay tuned !”
At the end of the video, a screenshot pops up saying, “49-0 vs. Connor [sic] the Notorious Quitter.”
Late Wednesday night on Instagram Live, Mayweather called McGregor “Conor McTapout” and then had a fake interview with a man poking fun at McGregor’s Irish heritage.
Even though McGregor obtained a boxing license in the state of California a few weeks ago, Mayweather said that McGregor only did so to make headlines for himself and not to actually have a fight between the two.
“He don’t really want to fight because I went to his boss. He don’t really want to fight. He’s just doing that to keep his name alive, you know what I’m saying, to stay relevant. He don’t really want to fight. He’s doing that building his followers, but he’s smart,” Mayweather said, per FightHype.com.
“Man, I don’t fight in California. What did he get a license in California for,” Mayweather said.
McGregor said that he would fight Mayweather for $100 million.
Mayweather also went on another rant this week saying he would slap Conor McGregor if he saw him.
“I don’t give a (expletive) what night it was, I ain’t never taking no L. I’m (expletive) McGregor up too,” Mayweather said. “Punk-(expletive) McGregor. I’m gonna slap McGregor. I’m gonna slap the (expletive) out of McGregor when I see him.”
