Roc Nation’s Rihanna has shown some love for mixed martial arts by hooking up with UFC superstar Conor McGregor this week.
Both RiRi and McGregor went to their social media pages Tuesday (June 21) to show off pics of them hanging out together.
In late May, retired boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, Jr. teased fans with a promotional advertisement featuring himself and McGregor.
Recently, G-Unit boss 50 Cent spoke out on Floyd likely coming out of his retirement.
“Floyd and I are really good friends, but we argue like regular people argue. The difference is when we have disputes, it winds up on CNN or Instagram. I can cuss him out, call him names, say whatever I want to him, but he’s my little brother. Every fighter says he’s going to retire—what’s left when you fight the biggest, most highly anticipated fight? But I do think he’ll fight again.” (Vanity Fair)
Last month, Floyd discussed the possibility of lacing up again to fight McGregor.
“It’s really not a rumor. The fight may happen. We really don’t know, as of right now. As of right now. But do I think the fight will happen? Absolutely. We’re the A-side, of course. It has to be a boxing match, because most fights that Conor McGregor won inside the Octagon, he was a stand-up guy. So I’m pretty sure it’s gonna be a tough fight for me. We really don’t know as of right now, but there’s been a lot of talk, and hopefully we can make the fight happen.” (Bad Left Hook)
