Floyd Mayweather’s friend and famous rapper 50 Cent reacts to Conor McGregor calling him out last month…
Funnily enough, Conor McGregor’s feuds are far from limited to mixed martial arts. Every day there’s a new player calling out the Irishman. Perhaps sensing the potential money to be made, stars from WWE, boxing, and even swimming are uttering McGregor in the media.
When you get challenged to a swimming race by Olympic hero Michael Phelps, you know you’ve hit the big time. Since his highly publicized fight with Floyd Mayweather, ‘The Notorious’ is bigger than ever.
But where does this apparent beef with famous rapper 50 Cent come from? Leading up to and after his boxing spectacle against Mayweather, McGregor was trolled hard by 50 Cent. Strange to see this from someone who isn’t even remotely a sports personality.
You have to just figure 50 likes staying relevant, or at least current. Most recently 50, real name Curtis Jackson, explained why he’d squash McGregor in the street:
50 Cent’s Comments
McGregor claimed 50 Cent was a ‘fake money b*tch,’ during the MayMac tour. As per MMAMania.com, 50 Cent feels McGregor is too small to compete with him:

“Usually it’s to do with women, as I’m sure you know,” McGregor told ESPN’s Highly Questionable. “Growing up as a young kid I was the younger kid and I was going after this girl. She was maybe 15, 16 years of age. Her boyfriend was like 17 or 18. Him and his little crew were driving cars and everything and I was only a young kid, but I sneaked my way in there.”
“I was with with the girl and we were walking up the street one night and the car pulled up in front of me and a big load of them jumped out and whooped my ass,” said McGregor. “I curled up in a ball and took my beating. I’d done nothing.
“For me, after that moment I thought to myself, ‘I’m going to really learn how to fight so if anyone ever jumps out of a car or jumps out in any situation they will never do it again.'”
