A man who doesn’t shy away from poking fun is UFC’s Conor “Notorious” McGregor, especially if it’s at a rival. Recently, the Irishman took to Twitter and ripped Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. for his choice of personal protective equipment that he was wearing during an event in London.
Notorious reacted to a photo that a fan tweeted to him:
The tweet reads, “Hahah brilliant. The gloves (laughing emoji).”
The Twitter post is a photo of a fan posing with Floyd Mayweather at the UK event while wearing a mock TMT t-shirt, and the main source of humor for McGregor came from the gloves Money was wearing. According to the Irish Mirror, the boxer was wearing gloves to mitigate his chance of contracting the COVID-19 coronavirus, which has spread around the globe.
The fan was wearing a t-shirt that reads “TMT: The McGregor Team,” with the “TMT” colored green, white and orange which is a nod to the Irish flag. Mayweather uses the acronym “TMT,” which is short for “The Money Team,” for his lifestyle brand.
In terms of protecting from the coronavirus, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) only recommends washing hands frequently. They do not recommend using personal protective equipment, like face masks or gloves.
