Floyd Mayweather, Conor McGregor Renew Their Feud

For reasons unknown, former five division word champion Floyd Mayweather lashed out on social media in the direction of UFC superstar Conor McGregor.

The two fighters met in the boxing ring last August, with Mayweather securing a tenth round TKO win at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Mayweather came out of retirement, after two years, to take the fight. McGregor was making his professional debut as a boxer. The contest took place at the junior middleweight limit of 154-pounds and they used 8-ounce gloves.

Their feud began two years ago in a similar manner, with verbal taunts being tossed around during interviews and on social media - leading some to wonder if Mayweather is finally angling to draw interest for a rematch.

Their fight generated 4.3 million pay-per-view buys, which made it the second largest PPV event of all-time.

While Mayweather, 40 years old, announced his retirement in the aftermath, McGregor continued to taunt him for a rematch.

Mayweather has largely ignored McGregor, but for whatever reason he decided to target him on Wednesday.

The undefeated boxer took to social media to taunt McGregor regarding a recent tabloid story, which claims the MMA star is being targeted by Irish gangsters in connection to a recent bar brawl that allegedly involved McGregor.

"I already f***ed you up in 2017, now they about to f*** you up in 2018. You’re about to start your new year off with a bang," Mayweather stated.

McGregor returned fire, which prompted Mayweather to continue the online scuffle by posting numerous photos from various points of their fight - where McGregor was taking punishment.

Two weeks ago, UFC President Dana White admitted that McGregor was pushing hard to get back in the boxing ring with Mayweather.

But McGregor’s coach, John Kavanaugh, recently stated in an interview that he was would do everything in his power to persuade McGregor to forget about boxing and make his long awaited return to the UFC.

McGregor, who holds the UFC's lightweight title, has not fought in MMA since the fall of 2016.

[QUOTE=MisanthropicNY;18398229]Well, maybe if Floyd didn't lose the first 3 rounds and probably the 8th round too, and embarrass boxing by allowing McGregor to last 10 fking rounds, we wouldn't have to deal with this BS again.[/QUOTE] He lost those rounds…
