Floyd Mayweather has reacted to Conor McGregor’s UFC 257 loss.
McGregor shared the Octagon with Dustin Poirier in a rematch on January 23. The lightweight bout headlined UFC 257. While McGregor won their first encounter back in September 2014, the rematch played out far differently. Poirier scored a second-round TKO victory.
Mayweather, who defeated McGregor in a boxing match back in August 2017, took to his Instagram account to bash McGregor after the fight with Poirier.

“I seen this post and my take on it is that the world knows Con Artist McLoser can steal everything from me and be loved but I’m hated. That just lets you all know that racism still exist. Just know, that bum will never be me or be on my level. I’m just built different, my mindset is on another planet, my skills are second to none, I’m a natural-born winner and yes I talk a lot of trash, but every time I back it up!
“This is what they hate. It’s sad that you can be a poor black kid from the ghetto that has dealt with racism your whole life and work extremely hard to put yourself and your family in a better position, and most of the hate come from my own people. Conor cannot even win in his own sport, but talking about coming back to boxing to fight Pacquiao. Nobody wants to see that, it’s like my leftovers eating leftovers.”
McGregor had been hoping to score a boxing match with Manny Pacquiao if he were to nab the win over Poirier. McGregor claims the deal to fight Pacquiao was “as good as done” before he suffered the defeat to “The Diamond.”
