Conor McGregor on Floyd Mayweather: ‘Floyd needs to learn before he opens his mouth’

Conor McGregor is sure not the right man to mess with. The fight between McGregor and Floyd Mayweather over Mayweather’s racist remark seems to be going strong.

Earlier this month, Mayweather told Fight Hype that “racism” still exists in combat sports and referring to McGregor said: “They say he talks a lot of trash and people praise him for it, but when I did it, they say I’m cocky and arrogant. So biased. Like I said before, all I’m saying is this: I ain’t racist at all, but I’m telling you racism still exists.”

McGregor responded a few days later on Facebook, but when a reporter asked him again about Mayweather’s racist comments, McGregor couldn’t hold back and blasted Mayweather again.

Calling himself a “multi-cultural individual”, McGregor said that he did not appreciate Mayweather’s comments.

“I am a multi-cultural individual,” McGregor said at the UFC 197 showdown. “I take from all cultures. Look at me. I am a product of many cultures as a young, Irish man. I know he wasn’t saying that I am that person, but it put me in that bracket. I did not appreciate that one bit. There’s people buried in the desert for less than that.”

The Irishman reinforced the fact that Ireland has had a long history of prejudice, a fact aptly highlighted from Ireland’s long national struggle for independence.

Advising Mayweather to learn before opening his mouth, McGregor said: “I think Floyd needs to learn before he opens his mouth. You don’t put a man like me in a situation like that. You don’t put me in a name that’s got to do with prejudice. You don’t know nothing about me.”

Advising Mayweather to do a background check before speaking, McGregor concluded by saying that Mayweather ought to understand before speaking who he is speaking about.

McGregor is fighting against Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 197 main event where Holly Holm will also be making her first title defence against Miesha Tate.
