Everybody Is Comparing This Picture Of McGregor And Mayweather To Titanic


There was no love lost between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor in the Las Vegas ring last night… or so you might’ve thought.

The tensions between the two professional athletes has been palpable for months, with both waging verbal warfare on each other.

So much so, this modern day prophet even predicted the throwback months ago:

Even 50 Cent got involved:
