Tuesday afternoon at the first Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor press conference, UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor and undefeated boxing icon Floyd Mayweather came face to face on-stage for the first time in front of a packed Staples Center.

During his opening speech, McGregor asked the cameras to zoom in on his suit, because the pinstripes allegedly said “fuck you”. Cameras were unable to zoom in enough for viewers to tell whether the suit did truly say “fuck you”. Following the event however, hi-res photos of McGregor’s suit began to emerge.

As you can see from the photos above, McGregor’s pinstripes appear to be rather unique. Zoom in a bit further, and you can see that the suit does indeed repeatedly say “fuck you” in pinstripe form:

The suit wasn’t the only statement made by McGregor during the course of the press conference. The lightweight champion boldly predicted on several occasions that he would finish Mayweather within four rounds.

Mayweather of course similarly predicted that he would finish McGregor in the fight, stating:

“And guess what, I’m a old man,” Mayweather said. “I’m a old man. I’m not even the same man I was 20 years ago. I’m not the same fighter I was 10 years ago. I’m not the same fighter I was five years ago. I’m not the same fighter I was two years ago. But, I got enough to beat you. And, we know Mr. tapout like to quit and you will wave that white flag. And I’m guaranteeing you this. You’re going out on your face or you’re going out on your back. Now which way you want to go?”
