Last year, McGregor lost to Mayweather by 10th-round technical knockout (TKO) during his pro boxing debut, in a match that reportedly earned him $100 million.

Floyd Mayweather has offered to help Conor McGregor prepare for his upcoming fight against UFC 229 opponent Khabib Nurmagomedov. That said, the former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion had several strong moments early, to the surprise of his throngs of doubters.

If you thought that Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather Jr. were on their way to becoming drinking buddies, think again.

Rivalries never really die and it appears the proverbial ball is in McGregor's court now.

However, Floyd believes that the fight will be tough as The Notorious won't back down.

First, Mayweather is 11 years McGregor's senior at 41 and secondly, he came into Money's world and got the fade handed to him. We've seen McGregor being submitted on the ground before, and in the same way that it only takes one punch to change a fight, it only takes one mistake to allow The Eagle to go for a submission.


"I know that UFC got a training facility but we'd like for him to work out at the Mayweather Boxing Club", Mayweather said.

Floyd responded to Conor's tweet later Tuesday night by posting a pic from the fight. saying "Easiest 9 figures I ever made!"

McGregor and Nurmagomedov will square off at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on October 6.

McGregor has since replied to the offer in typical McGregor fashion.

"There is no peace here, kid. Like I said before, Conor McGregor's not gonna back down from anyone, he's not scared, he's a warrior". "That's what the fans like to see".
