McGregor and former sparring partner Paulie Malignaggi had a run in and jawed at each other after their training camp relationship soured.

Another altercation occurred between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor along with their entourages as they crossed paths outside of the T-Mobile Arena. McGregor is heard in the video above taunting Mayweather before the shoving match between the two teams erupted.

“There was a faceoff (scheduled), then there was no faceoff, and then I saw him and said, ‘What, are you afraid of a faceoff today?’ McGregor said to the media via Boxing Scene. “He didn’t say anything, but then the goons, the big goons that he surrounds himself with started pushing and shoving.

“And then it was just a pushing and shoving contest, and that was it. Nothing really happened. I didn’t hear what his response was. It just became a pushing and shoving match.”

When asked if he feels Mayweather is starting to feel the pressure with the fights just a few days away and McGregor responded in typical “Notorious” fashion.

“He can’t walk around the place without being surrounded by these donkeys, and that’s what they are, absolute donkeys.

“Look, he’s in the ring on his own, and I know in his comments, ‘I hope the referee keeps it fair’, all I heard was prayers, ‘Please, ref, keep me safe.’ Like I said I’ll bang him out, hurt him badly, and I may make him beg me to follow the rules here.”
