For a while, Floyd Mayweather couldn’t get through an interview or appearance without a potential fight between himself and Conor McGregor coming up. But something changed recently that has apparently soured Floyd on the whole idea, and since then he hasn’t been as positive when the Irishman comes up in discussions. Maybe it was McGregor’s claim that Mayweather is a novice at “true” fighting?

Whatever the case, Floyd Mayweather isn’t interested in talking about Conor McGregor any more. After claiming he wasn’t even aware that McGregor fought, Floyd Mayweather bristled at a TMZ cameraman’s suggestion that Conor was the Mayweather of the MMA world.

“I didn’t know that Conor McGregor was undefeated,” Floyd said sarcastically. “I didn’t know he had a reign in MMA that lasted for 20 years undefeated and was world champion in five different weight classes. That’s something I didn’t know. So I guess you guys are telling me something new.”

“Has he ever made 300 million in one night?” Mayweather continued. “Have you even made 100 million in one night. Have you ever made 70 million in one night. So as far as you trying to say he’s the Floyd Mayweather of MMA … I mean, it’s okay to say it, but it’s not true.”
