UFC star Conor McGregor has taken a personal shot at Floyd Mayweather in response to the boxing champion’s offer of a super fight.

Speaking to ESPN, Mayweather offered the Irish fighter $15 million in guaranteed money and a cut of the pay-per-view sales.

He said it’s now up to McGregor and the UFC to close the deal.

But the newly crowned UFC lightweight champion hit back via Twitter with a cheeky emoji of McGregor standing above a KO’d  Mayweather, with the undefeated champion’s WBC championship belt around his waist, whilst holding his two UFC belts.

The emoji was accompanied by the caption ‘Call me C.J Watson!’

The caption is in reference to Mayweather’s beef with NBA player C.J Watson, who Mayweather believed was in a relationship with the mother of his three children.

 

 The five-time boxing champion earlier called McGregor out on ESPN sports chat show First Take.

"You guys keep hearing all these different rumors about different fighters want to face Floyd Mayweather," he said. "Everybody keeps talking about Conor McGregor. He's blowing smoke up everybody's a--. Dana White, the UFC -- let's make it happen. Bring him over to the boxing world, and I'll show him what it's like."

The retired boxing champion, who turns 40 in February, says the offer to McGregor is a realistic one.

"We tried to make the Conor McGregor fight," Mayweather said. "They know what my number is. My number is a guaranteed $100 million. That was my number.

"We are willing to give him $15 million and then we can talk about splitting the percentage - the back end - on the pay-per-view. But of course, we're the 'A side.' How can a guy talk about making $20 or $30 million if he has never made $8 or $9 million in a fight."
