UFC Irish fight star Conor McGregor lands in Floyd Mayweather’s hometown of Las Vegas and his online trolling of the former pound for pound boxer has commenced.
Unless you’re living under a rock lately, you’ll probably have heard of some kind of fight between two chaps called Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor possibly taking place.
Well, Irishman Conor McGregor has arrived in Mayweather’s hometown of Las Vegas and has already gone on the verbal attack upon the American ahead of a proposed boxing match:

Mayweather has told McGregor to sort out his business first with the UFC and then to come and talk to him.
Most likely that is exactly what McGregor is doing right now, as well as applying for his boxing license in the State.
I wouldn’t be surprised if McGregor turns up at Mayweather’s gym in some sort of build-up hype video too.
ESPN reported over the weekend that the Nevada State Athletic Commission were aware of ongoing negotiations between both teams, so one would imagine McGregor and his reps will meet with Mayweather and co at least once on this trip.
If it does happen, and that’s a big if, the above is perhaps an example of the trolling to expect from McGregor on Mayweather in any potential build-up to a fight.
Just don’t expect the fight to be competitive as a boxing match.
For obvious reasons.
