Things got a bit crazy at the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor press conference in New York, but of course we wouldn't expect it any other way. Unlike in Toronto where most people agree Conor got the best of Floyd on most of the verbal exchanges, this time Mayweather had the upper hand. It helps that he brought an entourage of giants along with him instead of a backpack this time.

After throwing massive wads of one dollar bills all over McGregor, Mayweather walked over to his side of the stage and uttered the most unlikely words ever uttered during a press conference.

"Yo!" he screamed. "Form Voltron!"

All of a sudden, the several large men Mayweather had entered with surrounded McGregor and a scuffle broke out. Conor's contingent tried to respond, but got shoved aside.

"Take them high heels off!" McGregor responded as Floyd slipped out the back of the fracas with a grin on his face.

In this strange game of WWE style shenanigans, we say well played, Floyd. Well played.
