Conor McGregor Fires Back At Floyd Mayweather Over ‘Racist' Comments

Don't pick a fight with a UFC fighter, because you will get pummeled.

After Floyd Mayweather said champion Conor McGregor's success is the product of “racism” in an interview last week, McGregor took to Instagram to fire back at the controversial boxer.

In a lengthy post, McGregor challenged Mayweather to a fight, and wrote,

Floyd Mayweather, don't ever bring race into my success again. I am an Irishman. My people have been oppressed our entire existence. And still very much are. I understand the feeling of prejudice…
Do not ever put me in a bracket like this again. If you want, we can organize a fight no problem…The game answers to me now.

Mayweather's controversial comments on FIGHTHYPE also targeted fighter Ronda Rousey, though she has yet to respond.

Judging from the 15,000 comments on McGregor's post, though, it's pretty clear whose side the public is on.

Sorry, Mayweather, but you lost this round.
