UFC star Conor McGregor taunts Floyd Mayweather over bank balance as boxer misses out on Forbes 2020 sports rich list

CONOR MCGREGOR has reignited his feud with Floyd Mayweather by mocking the boxer's bank balance.

Mayweather's financial worth has dwindled since he retired from boxing following his tenth-round TKO victory over the UFC's poster boy.

The Money man, whose net worth is believed to be a whopping £510million, was the highest-paid athlete in the world in 2018 but hasn't featured in the top-ten since.

McGregor revelled in Mayweather's absence from the list, which he also graced in 2018, on Friday afternoon, writing on Instagram: "Happy birthday Floyd!

"We miss you on the Forbes."

McGregor has yet to feature in the top-ten since his multi-million-pound showdown with the former four-weight world champion.

But The Notorious, whose net worth said to be just over £104m, plans to top it in the near future.

He said: "I’m already a very wealthy man and it is only going to go up, make no mistake about it.


"This year I have aspirations of being the number one highest-paid athlete on the Forbes list."

Last month, SunSport exclusively revealed negotiations over a billion-dollar rematch between the rivals had begun.

But Mayweather, 43, is seemingly not strapped for cash as he recently bought his five-week-old grandson a Rolex.

McGregor, 32, made his long-awaited return to the octagon last month in the main event of UFC 257, where he suffered a second-round TKO defeat to former interim lightweight champion Dustin Poirier.

A trilogy fight between the former featherweight rivals in understood to be in the works for the summer.

McGregor, the UFC's first simultaneous two-weight champion, is itching to get back in the cage with The Diamond, recently writing on Instagram: “What a trilogy I now have on my hands. Exciting!

“With a handle on the leg kicks I will get back to having fun in there. I was in second gear cruising this fight. Best condition I’ve ever been in.

“After the wrestling and clinch exchanges, my shots still held their pop. First time for me with this so I am very encouraged to keep going.

“It was the first time I did not use/nor need the stool between rounds also. I did need the stool after though that’s for sure.

“I am extremely happy I did not need to use the stool between rounds here anyway. Another first for me!

“I am most certainly on the right path. Despite the loss I am on the correct path of evolution.”

The Irishman added: "He added: “One a piece now with a trilogy bout for all the marbles! Wow! Exciting!

“Not a trilogy I was expecting, nor the tactical affair I was anticipating, but I’d be lying if I said this wasn’t meant to be.

“This is exactly how this was always meant to be! Buzzing!!”
