Conor McGregor has been issued a brutal rejoinder by Floyd Mayweather's manager Leonard Ellerbe after the UFC star took a swipe at the boxing legend.

The Irish man had claimed he was a 'phenomenal side' during the 2017 fight against Floyd Mayweather and believed he would take revenge should there be a rematch with the boxing legend.

The Notorious, who was totally outsmarted by Mayweather in the 10th round, also said he would have won the fight had Mayweather not changed his tactics.

But in a reaction, Ellerbe welcomed a potential fight with McGregor, adding that the UFC star must show a huge commitment if he really wanted the rematch to happen.

"Ayo @TheNotoriousMMA are you really sure about that champ, you know we can make that happen, asking for a friend?," Ellerbe tweeted in response.

McGregor is currently preparing for his much-anticipated return to UFC, with the 31-year-old set to fight Donald Cerrone in a welterweight headline bout at UFC 246, in Las Vegas.

Meanwhile, Floyd Mayweather had also announced a sensational return to the ring two years after retiring from the fighting sport.
