Video: ‘F*ggot’ Conor McGregor rubs Floyd Mayweather’s head, destroys Showtime ‘weasel’ for UFC critique

Most of us expected Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather Jr. to get physical at the conclusion of their world tour press conference (watch it), which took place earlier today (July 14) inside SSE Arena in London, England, though I’m not sure this is what we had in mind.

“Notorious” rubbed “Money” like he was trying to get a genie from the lamp.

Mayweather did his share of eyebrow raising while promoting their Aug. 26 boxing match, which takes place inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, calling McGregor a f*ggot and a p*ssy, among several other expletives.

Have a look:

Nate Diaz approves.

McGregor did more than just attack Mayweather, turning his attention to Showtime executive Stephen Espinoza, who told the combat sports press that his patience was running thin with McGregor and that UFC President Dana White did things “backwards” by putting himself before the fighters.

Mayweather and McGregor will head back to their respective fight camps to resume training, but no doubt we’ll see them back in front of the cameras during fight week, assuming nothing crazy happens between now and then.
