Trash-talking is a natural part of all sports across the globe, as we have numerous loudmouths that entertain us in different fields. They are usually bickering with guys they compete against, but sometimes the paths cross, and athletes from two different sports get into it. This exchange between UFC superstar Conor McGregor and NBA All-Star Draymond Green is the perfect example.
"I Don't Know Who The F**k You Are."
Back in 2017, Conor McGregor was getting ready for the fight of his life, going to a boxing ring to face the legendary Floyd Mayweather. The match was getting a lot of hype and attention, as the NBA world wasn't immune to buying into the hype and voicing their support mostly for Floyd.
Draymond Green is no stranger to getting into verbal conflicts and altercations with his opponents on and off the court, but before the fight, the Warriors forward managed to even get into it with McGregor. Draymond posted a photo of Conor wearing an old-school Warriors jersey with his #23 number, asking him to take it off because he supports Floyd. Safe to say, Conor didn't hold back in the response:
"That's C.J Watson mate. I don't know who the f**k you are. No disrespect tho kid, keep hustling and stay in school...Now ask yourself why I'm rocking C. J when I don't know or give a f**k about basketball. I dribble heads off the floor. Not a ball. This is no game here, kid."

Draymond being the proud loudmouth, also didn't mince words, praising himself and clapping back at Connor:
"That number won't be worn again when I'm finished with it clown! Gold medalist, NBA champ, All-Star, DPOY etc!!! Hahahaha stop it boy! Nate Diaz whooped you in your ring! Money May about to destroy you!!! Take that Warrior jersey off bruh, you're an incredible internet troll we don't rock with you!!! Go train bum!"

Conor was actually wearing a C.J. Watson jersey from the 2000's Warriors for one particular reason. Watson had been allegedly linked with Floyd's girlfriend, and McGregor just wanted to provoke and get into Mayweather's head. But it didn't work too much, as Floyd won by a technical knockout in the 10th round, giving Floyd and Draymond the last laugh.
