The Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor melo-drama continues. Both icons on their fields but the same fight fan community.
This time around Mayweather responds to McGregor reply to his “racism still exists remarks.
“Once again, I never said that the guy … Conor McGregor … is that his name?” said Mayweather through Fight Hype.
“I never said Conor McGregor was… I never had anything against caucasians, white Americans or white people, period. Or Irish. All I said was this, in this world, racism still exists, but I’m not racist. That’s all I said.”
“If he got offended? That’s life. Sometimes people will get offended by certain things people say. Just me? I have tough skin. I’m built for anything,” added Mayweather.
Is there a way to bury the hatchet between him and McGregor? Mayweather thinks it can happen but he will always take everything with a grain of salt.
“This is something that’s very interesting,” said Mayweather. “Like I’ve said before. We can forgive but sometimes we never forget. When no one knew who Dana White was, Dana White used to run around with me, hang out with me and I treated him just like anyone else in my camp.
The retired boxer moved on and took slight jabs on UFC CEO, Dana White.
“If you watch the beginning of my fights I had a patch on my trunk which was a Bullenbeisser dog. I wore the Bullenbeisser patch for Dana White, a little square guy. At that particular time I think the guy had a Honda, but I didn’t judge him. If you were my friend I love you unconditionally. I like you the same way I like everyone else that’s around me.”
“Now all of a sudden a guy gets put in a position, he shaves his head bald and acts like he’s tough and rugged,” said Mayweather. “That’s not the Dana White I know. I knew Dana White as a good guy, good square guy. If I had to say so, he was a guy who went to college and didn’t know anything about mixed martial arts or boxing.
“He used to be around me and my uncle Jeff and I treated the guy great. I think he’s the president of the MMA, the UFC. That’s a great thing.”
