Midnight Mania! Conor McGregor rips Floyd Mayweather - ‘He should have paid his taxes and stayed retired’

Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight ...

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Conor McGregor was followed by TMZ and had some interesting takes on the price of his upcoming pay-per-view (PPV) event, Floyd Mayweather’s financial choices and the doubters.

On the doubters:

“Fuck them!”

On the price of the PPV:

“It should be $120!”

On Mayweather not paying his taxes:

“That’s gotta sting. I don’t give a fuck what he did. I don’t give a fuck ... he should have stayed retired. He’s fucked now, and that’s the God’s honest truth. He should have paid his taxes and stayed retired, and kept my name out of his mouth.”


Everyone wants a crack at Justin Gaethje now- but he’s especially down to fight Eddie Alvarez. Real respects real.

Amanda Nunes’ explanation about removing herself from UFC 213’s main event this past weekend didn’t keep her from getting thrown under the bus by her own promoter, Dana White, who is the archetypal jerk boss. Nunes’ manager had some choice words for him.

This moment reveals what a genuinely nice guy Robert Whittaker is ... and Yoel Romero gracious in defeat. Michael Bisping, though, is an entirely different story.

Speaking of warriors respecting each other ...

Kelvin Gastelum is right that Gegard Mousasi to Bellator means one less guy to worry about -- Middleweight is an aging division, so guys like Gastelum are poised to be at the top for a long time just by default. Gastelum faces Chris Weidman at UFC on Fox 25 on July 22


Fabricio Werdum gets paid six figures by a guy who rounds up homosexuals for concentration camps? That doesn’t seem good.

Mousasi speaks the truth on the Reebok deal, Joe Lauzon’s minority dissent aside.

Man... that’s a lot of taxes.

Frankie Edgar seems to be getting the next title shot ... and Cub Swanson isn’t happy about it.

Derrick Lewis and Travis Browne will never squash their beef.

Maybe watch out for this guy at UFC “Glasgow” — Galore Bofando has some pretty awesome highlights:
