"Yeah, they took the mic off", McGregor said.

"That's to the tax man", McGregor said about the $100M. Just because an experienced boxer was able to fluster Pacquiao doesn't mean someone like McGregor will be able to do the same to one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in history.

"But I've got enough to beat you". Both fighters eventually met face-to-face at center stage with UFC president Dana White stepping in between.

So many people tuning into the first press conference of the world tour were looking forward to seeing (and hearing) Conor McGregor engage in a verbal battle.

McGregor also mocked Mayweather about his attire and the recent rumours that the American only took the fight because of financial trouble: "He's in a. track suit", McGregor said.
