Mayweather tells Nate Diaz he’s going to ‘put the finishing touches’ on McGregor
Floyd Mayweather has officially taken the bait in his feud with UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor, and has spent the last two days epically trolling the Irish fighter.
Mayweather appeared in a live Instagram video — posted to Youtube by FightHype — where he called up the only man to beat McGregor in the Octagon, Nate Diaz, to talk shop and dish some awkward remarks about the UFC champion. Take a listen for yourself.
At one point in the video, you can hear Mayweather tell Diaz that he has the support of “The Money Team” and offer to “put something on his trunks” before shifting the conversation to McGregor.
“Hey, Nate, tell me what I gotta do,” Mayweather said in the video. “Do I gotta? That boy is … aw, man. I see what you did to him, now. I’m gonna put the finishing touches on him.”
Rumors of the superfight between the two champions were reignited when McGregor obtained his boxing license in the state of California, which Mayweather called a “con job.” On Wednesday morning, Mayweather posted a video saying he was going to “slap the [expletive] out of McGregor” when he sees him before following up with a $10,000 contest for his fans to caption Diaz’s submission over McGregor.
No response to Mayweather’s antics yet from McGregor, who said previously that he wants $100 million to step into the ring with “Money”, but we’re sure it’s not too far away.
