CONOR McGREGOR, the star of the UFC, is not MMA’s answer to Floyd Mayweather, Floyd Mayweather himself has declared.

“Has he ever made $300 million in one night?” Floyd, rhetorically, asked TMZ.

He addressed himself to McGregor directly, “Have you ever made $100 million in one night? Have you ever made $70 million in one night?”

Mayweather of course made a fortune, not least from solely the Manny Pacquiao fight let alone his whole career, to become the most highly paid athlete in the world.

“I’m a legend, a living legend. To the sport of boxing I gave years and years of hard work. It was blood, sweat and tears. I had a tremendous team, I had a tremendous run. I think that it’s time for Conor McGregor to go out there and do what he do,” he said.

However he declared, “But never compare Conor McGregor to me. That’s total disrespect. I am an elephant. Elephant don’t beef with ants. Elephant is so large he don’t even see ants.”
