Floyd Mayweather has continued his savage trolling of Conor McGregor following the Irishman’s loss at UFC 264 last weekend.
McGregor faced long-time rival Dustin Poirier in the main-event bout of the UFC’s biggest event of the year.
After a heated build-up to the trilogy contest, many fans were expecting the bout to be a potential fight of the year contender.
Instead, it was Poirier who dominated the opening round, landing the heavier shots on the feet as well as some brutal ground-and-pound after McGregor attempted an ill-fated submission. Two of the bouts’ judges scored the round 10-8 for the Diamond.
The contest would then go from bad to worse for the Irishman. In the final moments of the first-round, McGregor fired a one-two combination. After missing with his left-hand, he fell backwards, and his ankle appeared to snap.
The former UFC two-weight world champion collapsed on the canvas and Poirier jumped on top to land even more ground-and-pound.
The round ended just seconds after the injury and the UFC’s doctor told referee Herb Dean that McGregor was not fit to continue fighting, meaning Poirier was victorious via doctor’s stoppage.

Since, the bout, McGregor has been mercilessly mocked by two of his most bitter rivals.
Floyd Mayweather has shared several posts with his 26.8m Instagram followers, mocking the former two-weight UFC champion. One of these showed a $50k bet that the retired boxer placed on Poirier to win the fight, which won the former Olympian $35k.
Mayweather captioned the post “Dustin Poirier, thanks for getting me paid!”.
Mayweather’s most recent post showed a UFC action figure of McGregor with the Irishman’s lower left leg twisted backwards.
He hilariously captioned the post: “Parents, please get your children an early Christmas gift and remember to tell them this… “F**K IF YOUR LEG IS BROKE… B***H HOP UP ON YOUR GOOD FOOT.”
Social media star-turned-boxer Jake Paul has also mocked McGregor’s loss.
Last week, before the fight had even taken place, Paul showed his 16.4m fans his $100k chain which featured an enormous pendant of McGregor unconscious after his knockout loss to Poirier earlier this year.
Since the clash, Paul has gone one step further and sent the chain to Poirier.
The YouTuber, who is 3-0 as a professional boxer, attached a note to the chain which congratulated Poirier on his victory.
“Dear Dustin. Congrats for your much earned victory. I love what you are doing with your Good Fight Foundation!
