Despite appearing to have swiftly moved on following their 2017 money-spinning boxing bout, Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather are suddenly back at each others’ throats. Mayweather targeted the UFC lightweight champion via social media, mocking reports that he had fallen afoul of Irish cartel associates in late 2017.
McGregor has asked Mayweather to stay true to his word and join him for a rematch inside the Octagon, yet this does not seem to be even remotely possible.
With “The Notorious” still yet to confirm an opponent for his return to competitive action, and Mayweather still insisting that he will not break his promised to remain retired, both men instead have vented off on social media.
I already fucked you up in 2017 now they about to fuck you up in 2018. You’re about to start your new year off with a bang 🔪🔨⛏💣⚰️ pic.twitter.com/upaRfLbgvJ

“I already f***ked you up in 2017 now they about to f**k you up in 2018. You’re about to start the New Year off with a bang,” Mayweather wrote.
I am the cartel.

Harmless time-killing or is there something more to this?
