Conor McGregor’s rivals line up to hit out at star after Dustin Poirier defeat

Conor McGregor had barely started to limp out of the octagon when the avalanche began.

Jake Paul was first, withdrawing his $50million fight offer and replacing it with a more modest $10,000 handout.

Quite where his beef with McGregor originated remains unclear but four minutes later Paulie Maglignaggi had had woken from his social media slumber to poke fun at his former sparring partner.

"Good night everyone," he tweeted alongside a picture of McGregor prone on the canvas.

Manny Pacquiao was more circumspect, praising Dustin Poirier just 10 minutes after calling on McGregor to convince him to sign on the dotted line.

Khabib Nurmagomedov took his shot but failed to find the target; confusingly claiming McGregor had abandoned his team during his ascent up the mountain.

Floyd Mayweather resisted the urge to have his say before the 2,000 fans had left the arena, instead taking time to compose his rant.

"The world knows Con Artist McLoser can steal everything from me and be loved but I'm hated," he wrote. "That just lets you all know that racism still exists.

"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 can not 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 picked up titles and pay cheques at will during his ride to the top.

As he tumbles down the other side, he'll find the landing's not so soft.
