, Conor McGregor trolls Floyd Mayweather for only winning $35k on Dustin Poirier to beat him after breaking leg at UFC 264

CONOR McGREGOR mocked Floyd Mayweather for winning only $35,000 after his loss at UFC 264.

And after the former two-weight champion suffered a horror broken fibia, the bone extending from knee to ankle, he was beaten by doctor’s stoppage.

It meant Mayweather collected $85,000 in return, making a $35,000 profit at the expense of his ex-opponent.

But McGregor – Forbes highest-paid sportsman of the last 12 months – reacted by tweeting ’35k’ with two laughing emojis.

Mayweather, who topped Forbes’ rich list of the decade in 2019 with a £706m fortune, retired after stopping the UFC legend in ten rounds.

McGregor recently offered the American a rematch while criticising his exhibition bout with YouTuber Logan Paul, 26, which ended without a winner after it went the distance.

But he is now focusing on recovery after a successful surgery with a fourth fight with Poirier eyed.

Addressing his fans, McGregor said: “It was a hell of a first round, it would’ve been nice to get into the second round then see what’s what.

“But that’s the nature of the business, a clean break on the tibia and it wasn’t meant to be.

“Dustin, you can celebrate that illegitimate win all you want but you’ve done nothing in there.

“That second round would’ve shown all. Onwards and upwards we go.

“We dust ourselves off, we build ourselves back, and we come back better than ever.”
