The Irishman, who became the first fighter to hold two UFC titles simultaneously in 2016, was mentioned by Mayweather regarding possible negotiations for a cross-codes bout hours earlier.
Upon spotting Mayweather’s $15m offer outlined to ESPN’s First Take, McGregor posted a tweet photo that pointed to the ‘Money’ man’s history of domestic violence problems.
Mayweather had said: “Conor McGregor keeps telling everybody he wants the fight. Let’s make it happen. We tried to make the McGregor fight. My number was a guaranteed $100million. We offered him $15m.
“We’re the A-side and I don’t know how much he has made but I’m pretty sure he hasn’t made $2m in an MMA bout.
“We can talk about splitting the PPV but we are the A-side. How can a guy talk about $20m or $30m if he’s not made eight or nine?”
McGregor responded with:

A message Mayweather is sure to get loud and clear.
