Last night, Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather faced off for the third time this week ahead of their mega money fight on August 26.
Earlier this week, The Notorious was accused of racism after telling his rival to “dance for me boy” during their stop in Toronto – claims Conor has since denied.
However, the UFC star's latest comments have not done him any favours.

Taking to the mic last night, Conor said, “I want to address something."
“Some of the media seems to think I’ve got something against black people."
“But I’m half black. I’m black from the bellybutton down!”
No. Just, no.
The comments have gathered a mixed reaction on social media.
I've been telling you that Conor McGregor was a racist bigot.
He literally told Floyd, "Dance for me, boy."https://t.co/Vc9Co1TcCY

I know a racist when I see one and Conor McGregor is not one. The Irish say "boy" and "lad" all the time.
