Floyd Mayweather fires back at Conor McGregor: 'Take care of your business'

LAS VEGAS NV- AUGUST 17 Nate Diaz speaks to the media during the UFC 202 Press Conference at David Copperfield Theater in the MGM Grand Hotel  Casino

Diaz who also threw at least one water bottle received a much less severe punishment

"I've been fighting my whole f***ing life".

"People think I'm a celebrity".

If this Mayweather vs McGregor entertainment circus does come to fruition under boxing rules, expect boxing commentators to be calling the fight. "I break people's faces for money and bounce", said McGregor in his interview with Zach Baron. But I've no problem going and slapping the head off one of his opponents that he couldn't finish. I think a person should just look at their own situation, look around them, find out what they wish to do, and seek and go and do that. "He's a little...he's got a little head on him", he says.

On Tuesday night, the pair of boisterous self-promoters sniped at each other over social media after there were reports they had agreed to the fight.

McGregor, the UFC's world featherweight champion, responded on Twitter by posting an image of himself sitting on a throne and, in the accompanying message, claiming: "I am in Las Vegas".

CONOR MCGREGOR looks to have his sights firmly set on a meeting with Floyd Mayweather.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. fired back at Conor McGregor early Wednesday, telling him to take care of his business if he really wants the much-hyped mega-fight between the pair to go ahead. "You understand that? If I crack that little head of his, it's gonna go clean off his shoulders and up into the bleachers". "Floyd has retired on my arrival".

It's pretty clear that if McGregor manages to pull off the near-impossible and actually will a fight with Mayweather into existence, he'll have no problems convincing people that he's got a chance of winning. In his professional MMA career, the Irishman has won 21 of his 24 fights, with 18 of those victories coming inside the scheduled distance; in his most recent bout he stopped Eddie Alvarez in the second round to win the lightweight crown.

A few days ago, McGregor published in his Instagram account a video that deluded fans who want to see him on the ring with Mayweather, as he is seen in a pure boxing training.
