A brawl in Ireland before Christmas, in which McGregor is alleged to have punched a member of a high-profile family and could face repercussions, was reportedly locally initially and eventually worldwide due to the UFC star’s profile.
Obviously getting wind of the story fairly late on, Mayweather put out a joke on his social media in a bid to inform his millions of followers of the potential situation McGregor could be facing.
“I already f***** you up in 2017 now they about to f*** you up in 2018. You’re about to start your new year off with a bang!” said Mayweather.

McGregor was defiant as reports of the scrap did the rounds, even stating ‘come and get me’ when outside court for a driving offense.
Without a return to the ring or octagon in the pipeline, McGregor is said to be back in training as Mayweather gets off on what could be a life-threatening set of circumstances if the Irishman isn’t careful.
UFC boss Dana White is continuing his efforts to get McGregor the best deal for a comeback following his loss to Mayweather in August of last year, whilst Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov are waiting patiently in the wings for a crack at his lightweight belt.
