Conor McGregor? I’d beat him in a street fight – 50 Cent discusses beef with UFC star
His anger at McGregor stemmed from a series of comments the Irishman made during the whirlwind press tour to promote Mayweather vs McGregor.
During the New York leg of the tour, McGregor, the first fighter in UFC history to hold two titles simultaneously, said: “50 Cent’s a b***h.
“You and 50 are two fake money b*****s. He’s bankrupt and you’re about to be.”
One of his posts included a picture of Mayweather landing a huge right hand flush on McGregor’s chin, which knocked some snot out of the Dubliner’s nose.

“C’mon, he weighs 150 pounds, man!”
50 Cent on if he’d beat Conor McGregor in a fight
The accompanying caption read: “And this is for calling me a b***h. LOL #50centralbet. Knocked the snot out your a**.”
“Where did that come from, you know?” 50 Cent questioned. “But he was doing his job. He was putting on a show and making sure everybody was paying attention.”
When asked if he thought he could take Ireland’s first UFC belt holder, he replied: “In the street? Yeah! C’mon, he weighs 150 pounds, man!”
