Conor McGregor has set his terms to box Floyd Mayweather — $100 MILLION!
The two had been going back and forth on TMZ Sports earlier this week — with Floyd calling him an “ant” and Conor daring him to “say that to my face.”
But Tuesday night at 1 OAK in NYC, Conor took over the DJ booth, hijacked the mic and called out the boxer for everyone to see.
“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 f**king 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.”
“He wants a boxing match, he doesn’t want a fight.”
“I want a $100 million cash to fight him under boxing rules … he’s afraid of a real fight.”
Ball’s in Floyd’s court now …
Dana White — Fires Back at Floyd Mayweather … ‘You’re the Cure for Insomnia’
Dana White ain’t taking too kindly to Floyd Mayweather’s shots at Conor McGregor — blasting the boxing legend as one of the most boring fighters ever … who needs to RESPECT the Irish stud.
After teasing a possible superfight with Conor earlier this year, Floyd has turned on McGregor — saying the UFC star simply ain’t in his league as a fighter and any comparisons are disrespectful.
So, we reached out to Dana … who STRONGLY defended his superstar.
“Conor McGregor … if he touches you, you go to sleep. Floyd puts people to sleep too, with his fighting style, not with his hands.”
“You know how Floyd knocks people out? When they’re not looking. Watch the Victor Ortiz fight.”
White went on to praise McGregor.
“This kid’s just getting started. This kid’s 28 years old. Floyd can say what he wants about Conor, but even other fighters have to respect him. He’s special. Floyd’s never even come close to doing to other fighters what Conor does.”
White says he will give Floyd props for what he’s done — but Conor’s the future. Period.
Conor McGregor — FIRES BACK AT MAYWEATHER … ‘Say It To My Face!’
Conor McGregor has a message for Floyd Mayweather — if you wanna talk smack, “SAY IT TO MY FACE!”
We just shot the UFC superstar on the streets of NYC — where he’s still getting all sorts of love from fans — and told him about the comments Mayweather made about him Monday.
McGregor called full B.S. on Floyd’s claim that he didn’t watch UFC 205 — and then Conor straight-up called him out.
By the way, make sure you watch “TMZ Sports” on FS1 Tuesday to see ALL of Floyd’s comments about Conor … including the part where he declares himself the BIGGEST name in MMA (yeah, you read that correctly).
Floyd Mayweather — ‘Don’t Compare Conor McGregor to Me’ … ‘Total Disrespect’
Floyd Mayweather is sick of the Conor McGregor comparisons — saying it’s “total disrespect” because the UFC star is an ant and Floyd is an elephant. Seriously.
Floyd went on about Conor for nearly 5 minutes — here’s a sample. We’ll have more on the “TMZ Sports” TV show Tuesday night on FS1.
Here’s one of the memorable quotes …
“I mean if you’re saying he’s the Floyd Mayweather of the MMA, I’m trying to find out. Have you ever made $300 million in one night? Have you ever made $100 million in one night? Have you ever made $70 million in one night?”
“So as far as you wanna say he’s the Floyd Mayweather of the MMA … I mean, I mean it’s okay to just say it, it’s not true.”
