Conor McGregor’s trolling game is once again proving to be one of the best on the internet.
Mayweather recently blew off the idea of fighting in the UFC, which has been rumored ever since his boxing match against McGregor in August.
That didn’t sit well with the Irish-born superstar fighter. McGregor posted a photo of himself during his match against Mayweather with the caption:
I am happy for Floyd and his recent announcement that he is out of these current fight negotiations.
It is the reason I never seeked the rematch in the first place. I was happy for him in retirement.
My game is a very unforgiving one. It is not like other games.
I understand completely him staying retired. I will now carry on in my negotiations and see where it goes.
Have a great retirement Junior.
Now come here and give your old man a hug for old times sake. I’m proud of you son.
Ladies and gentlemen, that’s what we call expert-level trolling. McGregor lost that boxing match, pretends like he didn’t, taunts Mayweather for not fighting in the UFC and does it over and over again.
It’s so bold that you almost have to respect it. Plus, he’s really just doing this because he knows the more hype he builds the more money and attention there will be on it when the fight rolls around.
He also appeared to tease a fight on the horizon. The UFC star posted a photo of himself bloody from a fight with the caption, “The what have you done for me lately business. Stay strong and stay ready.”
You’ve got to love the trolling game. It never gets old with McGregor, and that’s great entertainment value for sports fans everywhere.
