Jeff Mayweather Takes The Hose To Conor McGregor In Scathing Rant About The UFC

Jeff Mayweather Takes The Hose To Conor McGregor In Scathing Rant About The UFC
By Gavan Casey

Boxing trainer Jeff Mayweather, uncle of Floyd, has unleashed a hugely entertaining and explicit tirade at Conor McGregor and the UFC.

51-year-old Mayweather, a former professional boxer himself, told Fight Hype that he has taken umbrage with the UFC's flippant use of his nephew's name to promote their brand, while ridiculing the praise Conor McGregor has received for fighting and losing at 170lbs.

It's one of those things where the UFC was building their brand and building their fighters up off of Floyd's name. First of all, it ain't never going to happen, so it's just talk, and the only way that you can make yourself seem like you are bigger than what you really are is to call out the best guy in his sport, who has actually proven to everyone what he can do.

They want to make it like Conor McGregor is so great because he went up and got his ass whooped. Wow! That's great? You went up and got your ass whooped. It would have been great if you went up and did something and you actually won; just like Floyd did in five different weight classes.

But Mayweather wasn't quite finished where the UFC's Irish icon was concerned, flipping one of McGregor's more curious jibes at Nate Diaz in the lead-up to UFC 196.

If Conor McGregor would have fucking won, oh my God, he would have been the greatest thing since fucking ice cream. But since he lost, now they want to give him credit for going up; going up and getting his ass whooped.

You don't get no credit for that. You chose to do that. You accepted that man's challenge and talked plenty of shit about him, then you got your ass whooped by him. You made fun of him teaching jiu-jitsu classes to children and then got choked the fuck out. You don't get no damn honour points for that shit,

Mayweather said. Where supposed mythical crossover-matchups were concerned, he remained dissmissive, telling Fight Hype's Percy Crawford:

Who else they going to get to use Floyd's name, damn Jon Jones or somebody else way bigger than him? Somebody he can't never fight any damn way. Anybody that's close to Floyd's weight, they're done. Their value is done now. Everybody listening to Dana White talking that stupid shit about Ronda Rousey beating up men and now they jump on Conor McGregor's bandwagon, they don't got no motherfucking wagon no more. That shit is over with. They don't got nothing else to talk about. It shows that they need Floyd to promote their sport. They want to talk shit about the man, but it just shows how much they truly need Floyd to promote their company.

Floyd has never ever said that he wanted to fight one of them. He never said, 'I'll beat Ronday Rousey,' or 'I'll beat Conor McGregor.' Like I said, they had they little moment of fame. McGregor's lasted almost a year and Rousey's lasted about a year and a half. That shit is over with now. They can shut the fuck up about that dumb shit. They can shut the fuck up about what a MMA fighter can do to Floyd Mayweather because ain't shit going to happen to Floyd.

He also claimed that Floyd "could never fight someone with a record or the caliber of a Nate Diaz in the sport of boxing."

At this stage, it's probably worth pointing out that Jeff Mayweather has worked with a plethora of MMA fighters over the years, including heavyweight Roy Nelson.

However, it's probably not overly difficult to discern where his true sporting passion lies.

I don't even buy into that shit MMA fans like to say, "Well, there are more ways to lose in MMA than boxing." At the end of the day, that motherfucker chose that sport. You chose that sport; don't tell me about no goddamn ways of losing. Floyd chose the sport he chose and he walked away unbeaten. Just like there are a lot of ways to lose in MMA, one punch in boxing can end it all, and in boxing, you got a motherfucker throwing anywhere from 70 to 100 punches a round at your fucking head and body, so I don't want to hear that shit.
