Last week during an interview, Floyd Mayweather singled out the UFC champion Conor McGregor saying that his behavior outside of the cage and success are a product of racism.

“They say he talks a lot of trash and people praise him for it, but when I did it, they say I'm cocky and arrogant. So biased! Like I said before, all I'm saying is this: I ain't racist at all, buttelling you racism still exists.”

Yesterday, McGregor fired back at Mayweather in an Instagram post by challenging to a fight and telling him to not ever bring race into his success again because he’s dealt with his own form of oppression as an Irishman.

Floyd Mayweather, don’t ever bring race into my success again. I am an Irishman. My people have been oppressed our entire existence. And still very much are. I understand the feeling of prejudice. It is a feeling that is deep in my blood.’

In my family’s long history of warfare there was a time where just having the name ‘McGregor’ was punishable by death.Do not ever put me in a bracket like this again.

If you want we can organise a fight no problem.I will give you a fair 80/20 split purse in my favour seen as your last fight bombed at every area of revenue.

At 27 years of age I now hold the key to this game.The game answers to me now.

My people have been oppressed our entire existence. And still very much are. I understand the feeling of prejudice. It is a feeling that is deep in my blood. In my family's long history of warfare there was a time where just having the name 'McGregor' was punishable by death. Do not ever put me in a bracket like this again.

I was simply rehearsing for a potential upcoming film role. I understand that the more traffic a story can get the more revenue it generates. So I understand and respect that the media must create these stories and these situations even if at times it is at other people's expense. We've all got to eat. And I eat well. So I will not complain. 6. My next fight. What can I say, it's just another night of easy work for me. I don't just own the game. I run it too.
