That same night, McGregor fired back at the boxing legend. Add to that the fact that Mayweather is retired, and McGregor already has two UFC belts to defend, and things get even more hazy.

What do you think of what McGregor has to say about Mayweather? He tells that the comparison is similar to him being an elephant and Conor Mcgregor as an ant.

"After the American, who recently retired with a 49-0 win-loss record, took exception to having the Irishman compared to him, McGregor fired back, telling fans at a NY nightspot he would fight Mayweather "under boxing rules". for "$100 million".

And that has prompted MMA's biggest talker to respond, McGregor accusing Mayweather of running scared. "Floyd puts people to sleep too, with his fighting style, not with his hands", White told TMZ. Apart from that he also suggested that the UFC superstar is an ant while calling himself an elephant. "An elephant is so large he don't even see ants", said Floyd during what was a roughly five-minute rant.

"I want $100 million to fight him under boxing rules because he's afraid of a real fight".

"A lot of fighters in the sport of boxing may want to retire, but they have to fight because they have to", Mayweather said Wednesday.

The Irishman's demolition of Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 in NY seems to have rekindled the square-peg-round-hole rivalry between the two superstars.

"Floyd's not ready for this", he said.

"Much respect to Floyd", McGregor says in the video. "He's a solid businessman on what he's been able to do. he's a f-ing animal at what he's been able to do".

McGregor has used Mayweather - who, by the way, is retired, and holds a 49-0 undefeated boxing record - as a measuring post in the past, and in the lead-up to UFC 205 went so far as to say that after he wins the Lightweight title he "might have to drag Floyd Mayweather out of bed" for his next challenge.
