Recently, boxing icon Floyd Mayweather discussed the popularity of Ronda Rousey and Conor McGregor. ‘Money’ stated that when the two UFC stars talk trash, the media loves it, but when he did, he was criticized.
Mayweather drew the conclusion that ‘racism is alive and well’ which prompted UFC announcer Bruce Buffer to respond to those comments.
Now, Conor McGregor addressed Mayweather in a recent Facebook post.
” Floyd Mayweather, don’t ever bring race into my success again. I am an Irishman. My people have been oppressed our entire existence. And still very much are. I understand the feeling of prejudice. It is a feeling that is deep in my blood.
In my family’s long history of warfare there was a time where just having the name ‘McGregor’ was punishable by death.
Do not ever put me in a bracket like this again.
If you want we can organise a fight no problem.
I will give you a fair 80/20 split purse in my favour seen as your last fight bombed at every area of revenue.
At 27 years of age I now hold the key to this game.
The game answers to me now.”
