Conor McGregor Lives Up to ‘Notorious’ Nickname With Gangster Instagram Photo
That’s one way to send a message.
There’s a reason they call Conor McGregor “Notorious.” When he’s not dismantling the competition in record time, the beyond-brash UFC champion spends his free time stirring up shit with every athlete on the planet. He’s threatened to destroy Floyd Mayweather in a $500 million superfight, trash-talked Jose Aldo for more than seven minutes — and even parked across two parking spots. Two! You monster.
McGregor is playing for keeps — and he damn well wants the competition to know it. McGregor posted a photo on Instagram Wednesday night to remind his challengers of this fact in the most gangster way possible:
Sure, it’s a bit over-the-top, but it’s appropriate for McGregor; as the UFC’s first potential $100 millionaire, he’s basically robbing people blind when he collects his winnings. At this point, there’s not many fighters who relish being in the insane Irishman’s crosshairs.
Although Mayweather seems to be itching to at least exchange some trash-talk. The now-retired former pound-for-pound boxing king, who is certainly no stranger to Instagram showboating himself, recently complained that McGregor is borrowing from his ultra-cocky playbook. Now that’s a fight we’d kill to see.
