Floyd Mayweather wants to train Conor McGregor for UFC 229

Floyd Mayweather wants to train Conor McGregor for UFC 229

Mayweather won that fight via tenth-round TKO.

The latter part of McGregor's tweet was seemingly a reference to Mayweather's teasing of a move to the mixed martial arts world, which has yet to come to fruition.

After Mayweather invited the Irishman to train with him to prepare for his fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov, McGregor responded to social media with an insult.

- According to Dave Meltzer, the upcoming UFC 229 event featuring the return of Conor McGregor is trending towards being the second most in-demand ticket in UFC history.

"From what I know, [Nurmagomedov] is a hell of a grappler, and he can wrestle".




"McGregor didn't indicate precisely what his comment was about, but there's little room for interpretation when an opening line like "(Expletive) the Mayweathers" comes after Floyd seemed to reach out not as a potential future opponent, but merely as a former one.

"Conor McGregor, he's a tough competitor, like I said before Conor McGregor's not gonna back down from anyone, he's not scared, he's a warrior".

That win coincided with McGregor's now-infamous attack of a bus filled with UFC fighters, including Nurmagomedov.

While McGregor is probably the best striker in the UFC's lightweight division, Mayweather outclassed his skills when they went to war inside the boxing ring. "That's what the fans like to see". Floyd Mayweather got to round his record up to 50-0 and bank over $250 million, so it should be no surprise that he has fond memories of the match and the man that made it all possible.

Mayweather and McGregor exchanged verbal blows before their boxing rules bout previous year, and the Irishman was even accused of using racially-charged language.
