AceShowbiz - Conor McGregor is ready to bring his feud with 50 Cent to the octagon. The Irish boxer has thrown down a challenge to the rapper-turned-actor as he admits that he's upset about the G-Unit founder and member making constant memes about him.
"I'd have to probably say 50 Cent, I'd like to fight him," the former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight and lightweight champion said of whom he would like to fight the most in the future, after announcing his official UFC return in Moscow.
Recalling how his online spat with the hip-hop star started, Conor shared, "Throughout the course of the [Floyd] Mayweather build-up I used him as a tool, a promotional tool on the free also. I knew he was linked to Floyd, so I tied him into the situation and he responded big time. And we capitalized on that audience, so I was very happy with that and thankful. But then after that, he began a little tirade against me on social media, particularly Instagram where he’d make these memes about me constantly."
"Every time I'd go onto the internet I'd see 50 Cent had posted up some new stupid meme and I wrote one of the memes - 'old man on the internet making memes' and then he blocked me," he continued. "So he's had to block me, and I still see sometimes, I still get tagged in - other people saying he's saying this and his saying that."
"So I'd like to have a knock-off with 50 yeah, so if you're listening 50 - let's get it going bud," he reiterated his challenge to Fif.
50 Cent has not responded to Conor calling him out for a fight. He previously mocked the 31-year-old mixed martial artist when the latter was arrested for attacking a bus filled with fighters before UFC 223. The "Power" star and creator put Conor's face on a photo of Britney Spears attacking a paparazzo's car with an umbrella in 2007 and captioned it, "Is that you Britney?"
