Conor McGregor reacts to Floyd Mayweather’s "embarrassing" brawl with Jake Paul

Conor McGregor branded Floyd Mayweather "embarrassing" after his ugly brawl with YouTube star Jake Paul.

Mayweather and Paul were involved in a heated row over a potential fight when the latter grabbed the ring legend's cap.

He was wrestled to the ground by Mayweather and his entourage before the pair were separated.

Mayweather was left furious as he was dragged into the bowels of the Hard Rock Stadium while Paul celebrated his successful stunt.

And it didn't take long for McGregor, who lost to Mayweather and who has been called out by Paul, to have his say.

Addressing the CEO of Mayweather's promotional company Leonard Ellerby, McGregor said: "What the f*** is Floyd at? The kid curled up, didn't fight back once, and Floyd is still running around acting the tough guy.

"The kid actually just pulled this shambles of a situation Floyd is in out of the drain for him. He should thank him. It's embarrassing! Pro to pro it's embarrassing."

Mayweather was in Miami to promote his exhibition bout with Paul's older brother Logan which will take place over six rounds on June 6.

The retired pound-for-pound great has claimed he will earn $100m from the fight – but McGregor disagreed.

He added: "He will not scratch $10m for this fight and he knows it. It was cancelled once already. The world is watching this on Twitter.

"He'd fight a half decent pro and command $20m upwards, yet it's this s***. Whatever way you spin this, it's sad. Fight someone for real, on your record, or f*** off mate. Slap head!"

McGregor is hardly a stranger to controversy having thrown a trolley at a bus transporting UFC fighters back to their New York hotel.

The Irishman's bitter rival Khabib Nurmagomedov was on board at the time of the incident in 2018. McGregor was later charged and ordered to complete community service.

He was then involved in a brawl after he was choked out by Nurmagomedov later that year with both fighters slapped with fines.

The Dubliner has fought twice since, knocking out Donald Cerrone last year before being stopped by Dustin Poirier four months ago.

McGregor is currently preparing for his third fight with Poirier which is scheduled for July 10 in Las Vegas.
