UFC Superstar Conor McGregor is voicing his displeasure with a recent incident. Boxer and YouTuber Jake Paul thought it was a good idea to anger Floyd Mayweather.

Paul decided to take Mayweather’s hat off of his head. Then, after doing so, he ran off with it at a press conference in Miami, Florida.

“Hey @leonardellerbe, what the (expletive) is Floyd at?,” McGregor said in a Instagram post. “The kid curled up, didn’t fight back once, and Floyd is still running around acting the tough guy. The kid actually just pulled this shambles of a situation Floyd is in out of the drain for him. He should thank him.

“It’s embarrassing! Pro to pro it’s embarrassing. He will not scratch 10m for this fight and he knows it. It was canceled once already. The world is watching this on Twitter. He’d fight a half-decent pro and command 20m upwards, yet it’s this shit.
Whatever way you spin this, it’s sad. Fight someone for real, on your record, or fuck off mate. Slap head!”

Back in 2017, Mayweather defeated McGregor in a boxing bout. Mayweather, who ended his career undefeated, knocked out McGregor in August 2017.
