Things got seriously heated between Conor McGregor and a member of Floyd Mayweather’s security team during last week’s promotional world tour.
Commotion quickly turned into a tussle as Money demanded that his entourage gather around McGregor menacingly. McGregors teammates followed suit, rushing to defend Mystic Mac.
However, the ruckus did not end there…
McGregor proceeded to confront Pretty Boy’s bodyguards both at the Barclays Centre and again in London, where he described his opponent’s two bodyguards as being ‘juiceheads’.
However, one clash with security guard Greg La Rosa during the New York leg of the tour got particularly tempestuous.
Fans didn’t catch most of what was said, with microphones failing to pick up the fiery altercation, but it was clear that tempers had flared.
Now Greg has now spoken out about the stormy exchange of words.
Speaking with Submission Radio, Greg recalled the entire spat, in all its intense detail:
In Brooklyn, basically, Floyd said ‘Point to the easy work!’ so we pointed at McGregor. And then he said the tapout stuff and I think that was getting to Conor
So that drew his attention to us and he looked over at me and the other guy, Ray, and he said: ‘Look at these two juiceheads!’ So I guess at that point, he’d had enough of it and had to have a go at me
I thought it was great but he looked at me and said: ‘Look at these two juiceheads!
I can’t remember what Floyd said after that. But Floyd said something and Conor walked away for a bit.
Greg went on to talk about what happened when McGregor returned and focused his rage directly on him…
Then he came back and said some stuff to me like: ‘You’re on juice.’
But I told him right there: ‘No, never. I’ll do a USADA test right now and I’ll bet you $100,000 that I’m not.” And he said: ‘Yeah, right.’
I said: ‘I’ll take it right now. I’ll take the blood right after the show.’ Then he said something along the lines of: ‘This is a real body.’
I said: ‘When you’re standing next to me, you should put on a shirt because you’re embarrassing yourself standing next to me.’
I figured it would rile him up a bit and I thought it was funny but in no way, shape or form am I sitting up there mad.
You can watch the chaos erupting in the following clip:
It certainly takes some guts for a non-MMA fighter to try and rile up The Notorious… With shady put-downs like that, has Greg ever considered a career in The Cage?
With mere weeks until McGregor and Mayweather’s super fight in La Vegas, who knows what further drama will unfold…
