UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor boxed Floyd Mayweather, Jr. on Saturday night in what will likely be the most lucrative fight of all time. Mayweather stopped him in the 10th round, ahead on all scorecards, but in the aftermath, many were complimentary of McGregor’s showing, including former foes and several boxing personalities who gave him little chance beforehand.
But not everyone was as impressed with McGregor.
Rap icon Snoop Dogg, who also moonlights as a commentator on the alternate “Snoopcast” commentary for the Dana White Tuesday Night Contender Series, took to his Instagram account immediately after the fight where he fired off an expletive-laden tirade against McGregor and his failure.
“50 and 0 n****. The motherf***ing champ, n****. 50 and 0. F*** that motherf***ing punkass McGregor, you b****. F*** him. Motherf***ing champ, n****.
“Yeah, n****. That’s what you get for coming to a motherf***ing gang fight with a butter knife you b***ass motherf***er. F*** you, n****. Money Team champ, n****. Where the party at, Floyd? Yeaaah!
“Hey, 50 and 0, n****. Hey, McGregor a bad motherf***er though. I’ll give him his, he got heart. He got heart.”
To go along with that last equivocation, Snoop Dogg also ended the evening with a final compliment towards McGregor, saying the fight was excellent.
“Good win tonight champ. Good fight McGregor, that was a great f***ing fight, man. Now we celebrate.”
And had that been the end of it, perhaps Snoop Dogg’s statements could be viewed as heat of the moment reactions. Instead though, Snoop Dogg went on to repost several memes and videos making fun of McGregor and his supporters.
It remains to be seen whether this open and abrasive mocking of the UFC’s biggest star will have any effect on Snoop’s role as a commentator with the Tuesday Night Contender Series.

I can’t tell if Conor actually thinks skill wasn’t a factor or if it’s just him saying stuff.

Paulie’s reaction has some good and some bad but worth a watch. Definitely seems like he was right about Conor’s power not translating to boxing.

And the appropriate response to them.
Jose Aldo should take a class with Conor McGregor on how to take a loss. Also on how to be a winner.— Patricio Freire (@PatricioPitbull) August 27, 2017
Nate will never stop going in.

Khabib trying and he’s got an outside shot at making it happen I would think.

TODAY IN MMA HISTORY
2005: Pride Final Conflict 2005 took place which included the long-awaited heavyweight title fight between Fedor Emelianenko and Mirko Cro Cop. Emelianenko won a unanimous decision in the 2005 Fight of the Year. Also at this event, Mauricio Rua capped off one of the best years in MMA history, winning the Pride Middleweight Grand Prix with stoppages of Alistair Overeem and Ricardo Arona.
2010: Frankie Edgar successfully defended his UFC lightweight title, winning a unanimous decision over B.J. Penn in their rematch at UFC 118. In the co-main event that evening, James Toney made his MMA and UFC debut, getting throttled by Randy Couture in 3 minutes and 19 seconds.
Hope everyone enjoyed the weekend and the fights. In my opinion, MayMac ended up being the rare fight where everyone can draw basically whatever conclusion they want from it, which can only help Conor going forward, assuming he does wish to continue fighting. At the very least, it seems like we have a Diaz trilogy incoming.
And we’re back in the saddle again. UFC Fight Night Tall Guys this weekend and a Ben Askren fight to boot if you’re the type of person to be interested in that. Happy Monday and see y’all tomorrow.
