At Christmastime, even MMA stars like Conor McGregor turn their thoughts to others, and the gifts they'd like to give. On Christmas Eve, McGregor was thinking in particular of Floyd Mayweather and how he'd like to deliver a beating to the retired boxing champion's face.
This didn't come out of nowhere, of course. Mayweather and McGregor have been doing this little waltz for quite some time now. Mayweather has even turned up the temperature with shenanigans like offering a $10,000 reward for the best caption to a video diss he made of the Irish UFC champ.
The fact that McGregor went to the trouble to acquire a California boxing license has been seen as an indicator that he isn't playing, either — he absolutely would like to rearrange Money Mayweather's face.
We'll still believe it when we see it. And we're getting to the point where we might like to see it.
