Conor McGregor isn’t bothered by Floyd Mayweather’s use of an anti-gay slur against him. McGregor was asked by MMAjunkie about Mayweather referring to him as a “f****t” during the London stop of the Mayweather-McGregor promotional tour on Friday and said it didn’t mean anything to him.

“I actually didn’t even hear that,” McGregor said, adding, “People are so touchy on words. It’s absolutely crazy. If he said that, I couldn’t give a (expletive). I think what he was trying to do was to switch it up and get the people back in his favor. I think it was a bit of a (expletive) move to try and instigate that on me.

“Everyone with a sane mind that is watching knows what way it is,” the MMA fighter concluded. “It is what it is. Some dirty tactics out there, but that’s what to expect. The fight game is a ruthless business.”

The two fighters face off on August 26th in Las Vegas.
