MMA fighter Conor McGregor is currently in a war of words with rapper 50 Cent, and the name-calling and insults are getting downright ugly.
On Monday, McGregor issued an Instagram post slamming the rapper, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, while also taking some shots at P. Diddy and Floyd Mayweather, claiming that “the mad 50-year-old Instagram blocker” blocked him from his Instagram. “Ahh don’t block me 50 kid, I still like some of your songs. The older ones hahah,” McGregor added (50 Cent, by the way, is 42).

Making deals and TAKING deals! Kings recognise Kings! Congrats to @jayz on his number 1 takeover from @diddy in the highest paid Forbes list. What a take-over! Diddy hasn't been number 2 in so long. Until now. Zoom into that two tone with the powder blue on my wrist mate. You might see 1st place again. I am also really interested to see this years Forbes highest paid athletes list. I have now surpassed @cristiano Ronaldo as I told him I would in 2016. Floyd as a retired fighter that makes ZERO substantial revenue outside of them ropes is not on the list, and in the long game, is already dead. Mixed Martial Arts is a glorious game, Floyd. You are going to love it hahaha Someone tag 50cent in this for me. He blocked me on this the mad 50 year old instagram blocker. Ahh don't block me 50 kid, I still like some of your songs. The older ones hahah King bless you all! @burgerking
Billboard reports that 50 Cent fired back, posting a video on Instagram (which he later deleted) in which he suggests McGregor cheated on his wife with Rita Ora, and another (also deleted) in which he declares that black boxers are superior to white boxers, joking that Hollywood had to make “Rocky” in order to come up with a white fighter who could beat a black opponent.
McGregor took the bait and fired off another Instagram post on Thursday, celebrating International Women’s Day by telling women to “get your t*ts out for the lads, ladies,” before disputing 50 Cent’s theory of genetic superiority.
“Super genes my big b*llsack mate,” he wrote, accompanying a photo of a shirtless 50 Cent. “I am made of granite. You need a bra. You jabbed up fool.”
Added McGregor: “You[‘re] 50, 50. 50 years old. F**k off.”
He ended on a slightly friendlier note. “It’s all love tho fifty serious, you are a mad bastard, but we still proper love a few of your tunes over on this side of the world. I even blasted one of them on the free walking into madison square garden to take one of my belts. It was called I run New York.”
