Conor McGregor > Floyd Mayweather

Thursday, January 11, 2018

Floyd Mayweather is the greatest boxer of his generation and a better boxer than UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor. Notorious is the better MMA fighter.

For money, it’s more complicated. Before MayMac, Mayweather didn’t have $22 million in cash to cover an IRS bill. But he made low 100s of millions of dollars in August. But he reportedly spends about $75 million per year. And at 40, paydays that won’t threaten his Rocky Marciano breaking record are few. Meanwhile, McGregor is leasing rather than buying exotic cars, buying land, and is 29, with years to improve.

And for bickering bitterly on Twitter, Mayweather needs to up his game.

In November, rumors floated that McGregor punched a mob associate in an Irish bar and that convicted drug dealer Graham ‘The Wig’ Whelan, a member of the notorious and deadly Kinahan cartel wants the champ to pay $1,000,000 in compensation. Mayweather apparently discovered Wayback Machine and crowed about it recently on his social network.

Conor was not impressed.

Looking at the numbers, Mayweather broke 40,000 likes. McGregor’s reply broke 60,000 likes. And then McGregor took things to a higher plane – Instagram.

Violate these nuts 🥜

That earned way over 1,000,000 likes in 12 hours, and rising.

However, if the two trash talk their way to MayMac 2, it’s a lot of money for them, but not great for MMA or MMA fans. But it can’t be denied that at bickering on Twitter, Conor McGregor > Floyd Mayweather.
