The biggest streetfight since Rocky V?

Conor McGregor stepped out of the octagon to face off against Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match that what was billed as the fight of the century.

Now Mayweather’s best friend is trying to pick a fight with the MMA fighter. During a recent promotional screening in the United Kingdom for Den of Thieves, the rapper was asked if he could beat Mayweather. He confidently answered that question.

“Right now, when he’s at 154 pounds? I’m 225 right now,” he said.  “They don’t understand this is heavyweight s*** going on around here. I hit them, they see a white light. They hear a message. Slow down, boy. They think Jesus is talking to them. Outside the confinements of the sport. If you got into a [street] fight, it’s a different thing.”

McGregor has been rumored to be getting back into Mixed Martial Arts fighting and may look for a rematch against Mayweather inside of the Octagon.

Meanwhile, 50 co-stars in the film Den of Thieves which is set to be released January 19.
