Mayweather trolled by Russian UFC fighter over MMA cage clip

Mayweather trolled by Russian UFC fighter over MMA cage clip”

Boxing legend Floyd "Money" Mayweather was trolled by Russian UFC fighter Zabit Magomedsharipov over a video the United States star recently posted on his Instagram account, which shows him entering an MMA cage.

This may just sound like more bullsh*t from the Conor McGregor hype machine.

McGregor said he was "excited" to see Mayweather's social media posts. And he's now given his first interview since the cross-over rumours.

"Of course the Mayweather fight is there", McGregor said.

While claiming he would respect Mayweather if he transitioned to MMA. "But if he does do it - I know he's flirting with it - I would have respect for him. I think it would get his earned respect then, if he was to step in (the Octagon)", McGregor said.

"If it [is just for talk], and he doesn't do it, it will follow him for the rest of his days that he did not do it".

"As I said. I'm at the negotiation table right now".

UFC in Australia is reaching a fever pitch in Australia, with UFC 221 to be held in Perth - where bookmakers Neds rate Luke Rockhold as $1.80 favourite to overcome Yoel Romero (who Neds are listing at $2.00 to win) in the main event - however a mega-bout between McGregor and Mayweather in the Octagon would send the sport into the stratosphere.

And after condemning the Irishman to a technical knockout decision inside the boxing ring last year, 40-year-old Mayweather has teased the possibility of a rematch inside the Octagon.

As McGregor decides what his next move is, the top two contenders in the Lightweight division, Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov face each other at UFC 223 on April 7th in Brooklyn, New York.

"I'm now in negotiations to face my next opponent and we have many options", McGregor said in a YouTube interview with Adam Glyn. But the fight game changes so quick and so many times, so we'll see. "There's current interim lightweight champion [Tony Ferguson]". There's obviously the Nate Diaz trilogy. "Times are good, life is good". If you've grown tired of images of cars, watches and private jets clouding up your timeline, maybe they will soon be replaced (or at the very least, supplemented) with training photos from an actual fight camp.
