Chechen dictator Ramzan Kadyrov joins Floyd Mayweather’s ‘Money Team’ ... please gasp and feign outrage

Now that undefeated boxing icon Floyd Mayweather Jr. has disposed of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight kingpin Conor McGregor, he can retire with a perfect 50-0 record and go do ... whatever it is rich people do when they stop working.

For “Money,” that includes hanging out with deranged Chechen dictator Ramzan Kadyrov, who knows a thing or two about mixed martial arts (MMA) after rounding up the cast of Annie and putting them in cage fights.

No, really.

Mayweather previously made the trip back in March and was apparently so impressed (or so well compensated), he made a return just last week, much to the chagrin of butthurt journalists around the blogosphere.

“Everybody that’s on Instagram, you better follow this man right here,” Mayweather told his social media followers (via Yahoo! Sports). “This is my buddy. This is my guy right here. And yes, he is a part of The Money Team.”

I’m not sure what all the hubbub is about ... did Mayweather suddenly become a role model for the youth of tomorrow?
