After years of trash talking (see UFC’s Conor McGregor’s Gives Race-Baiting Floyd Mayweather a History Lesson and Floyd Mayweather: Conor McGregor is Popular… Because Racism?), the #MayMac press tour is ready to roll. Unsurprisingly, the press is kicking some nests hoping to stir up some hoopla. In sporting fashion, Conor McGregor is taking shots at Floyd Mayweather. Starting with Mayweather’s IRS problems. For those of us who couldn’t figure out why “Money” Mayweather took the fight, apparently he doesn’t have any cash left.
“That’s gotta sting. He shoulda paid his taxes and stayed retired and kept my name out of his mouth! He’s fucked now.”
You would think a guy who calls himself “Money” and whose company is called ‘The Money Team” would be better at keeping an accounting of it. Like paying the blood sucking IRS their blood money. No, I’m not siding with the IRS. Nor am I siding with Mayweather. Every April employed Americans everywhere fantasize about doing certain things to certain three-lettered agencies who take their money. How Mayweather has gotten away with NOT paying these fiends $100M is a multilevel, mysterious scandal.
I am siding with how fun trash talking is. Here we have two guys who’re hoping to beat the crap out of each other, but some leftist dingus somewhere is going to bitch and moan about a few verbal jabs. Makes sense.
Trash talk leading up to a fight is part of the fun of the fight. If you don’t like it, I don’t believe you, liar. Why else did you click this post? What, were you hoping for glowing insight into the state of politics as it relates to MMA?
