After the UFC 250 event ended last Saturday, Conor McGregor again announced that he was retiring from sport and Floyd Mayweather scoffed at him. The Irishman admitted he was discouraged with mixed martial arts and the direction his career was taking this year, with no predictions of fights and, according to him, motivating opponents. In this way, the American boxer did not miss the opportunity and went viral for an accurate comment he made. Now, a few days ago, the MMA posted an image on Instagram, with a message for the American. “Big noise, humerus and sweaty,” he said.
They are both retired
But before that decision, the former lightweight and featherweight champion of UFC, had said that he dreamed of a rematch against Floyd Mayweather. Now, with the news that the European would no longer fight, the boxer provoked him on social networks. That is why the best of all time with gloves commented in an MMA publication, where he received a cake from his son wishing a happy retirement, remembering the words that the fighter said to Mike Tyson.
Floyd Mayweather does not close the door to be measured back to Conor McGregor, the Irishman who is a legend in UFC. This being the case, the North American welcomes the fight with the mixed martial arts star again. Anyway, he will only do it in the boxing ring, never in the MMA octagon, as he revealed in an interview for Forbes. In 2017 Money beat the Irishman by technical KO in the tenth round. In this way, he kept intact his unbeaten record (50-0). He’s been away from the ring since he’s been inactive since his victory over Tenshin Nasukawa in December 2018, in an exhibition fight. Now, prepare another similar fight in Tokyo for 2020 or 2021.
Great rivalry between the two
After great promotion and media appeal, Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor They met in August 2017, being one of the fights with the most money in history. On that occasion, ‘Money’ won by technical knockout in the tenth round. The comment went viral, however, there was no response from the Irish fighter, who in recent months has been mentioning that he could face it for the second time.
“This year, he’s retired. He doesn’t have a fight this year and he’s not going to have a fight this year, ”the promotion’s President told Bartsool Sports podcast My Mom’s Basement (via MMA Junkie). “Conor McGregor He is not going to fight in 2020, ”he later said, leaving many with more sadness than before. The Irishman announced what was his fourth “retirement” from MMA in June, failing to make fights against Justin Gaethje and Anderson Silva. While it sounds like a lie, it has held up very well for now.
