Conor McGregor wants to get in the ring with 50 Cent.
The former UFC champion has challenged 50 to a fight after the rapper mocked him on social media.
“I’d have to probably say 50 Cent, I’d like to fight him,” McGregor said during a press conference (via Men’s Health).
50, who previously supported McGregor’s rival Floyd Mayweather, launched a tirade against The Notorious, posting several memes on Instagram, including one where McGregor’s head was Photoshopped onto Britney Spears’ body. He captioned it: “Is that you Britney. LOL.”

But McGregor eventually had enough of the memes. “Every time I’d go onto the internet I’d see 50 Cent had posted up some new stupid meme and I wrote on one of the memes—’Old man on the internet making memes,’ and then he blocked me,” he added. “So he’s had to block me, and I still see sometimes, I still get tagged in other people saying he’s saying this and he’s saying that.”
So he decided to challenge him to a fight. “So I’d like to have a knock-off with 50 yeah, so if you’re listening 50, let’s get it going bud,” he said.
The two have a history of beef. During a 2017 appearance on “Watch What Happens Live,” 50 was asked if he could take McGregor in a fight. “In the street? Yeah! C’mon, he weighs 150 pounds, man!” he said.
The MMA fighter also had some words for 50 leading up to his Aug. 2017 match with Mayweather. “50 Cent’s a bitch!” he said while standing on stage with Mayweather. “You and 50 are two fake money bitches.”
