The two fighters conducted their promotion for the fight in a boxing ring and took their best verbal shots at each other.
McGregor on the B side took to the microphone first and even got physical with Mayweather, patting the top of the undefeated boxer’s head while doing his best to promote the fight. Mayweather was unphased by McGregor’s action and waited his turn to jump on the mic.
Mayweather took his time as the crowd was chanting in favor of “The Notorious” and egged them on continue and be even louder.
Mayweather continued his spiel of siding with Dana White and insisted that he and the UFC President were on the same level as businessmen and that they have all the money and don’t need to impress anyone with wearing a suit. Mayweather then went on to claim that White is the “pimp” in their business while McGregor is his “ho.”
“Money” also stated that he would fight McGregor in the Octagon to which McGregor replied that he will make him fight their rematch in the Octagon after he beats him in the boxing ring on August 26.
Mayweather then went on to bring up McGregor’s three losses in his professional mixed martial arts career and brought up Nate Diaz’s name, who served McGregor his last loss in March of last year.
“Hey! Somebody get Nate Diaz on the phone,” Mayweather exclaimed to which the crowd of McGregor fans did not care for. “Get Nate Diaz on the phone.
“It feels so good to be at the top and never lose,” Mayweather added. “You know what it’s like to taste defeat. I will never taste defeat, b*tch.”
