David Hookstead | Smoke Room Editor-in-Chief

UFC star Conor McGregor has entered into full troll mode ahead of his boxing match with Floyd Mayweather.

McGregor posted a photo of himself training in a boxing ring, and the wall behind him has been painted with a mural showing the Irish-born fighter knocking out Mayweather, who is arguably the greatest boxer of all-time.

He captioned the photo, which has more than a million likes, “I am a filthy Irish animal.” (SLIDESHOW: These Are the Hottest Women Of The UFC)

The two have gone back and forth for a long time, and it certainly isn’t the first time that McGregor has engaged in this activity over social media.

When the fight between the two was initially announced McGregor posted a photo of Mayweather on his Instagram portraying him as an old man, which was a jab at the fact he’s 40 years old.

Now fans just have to eagerly wait for the press conferences between the two, which will almost certainly be out of control.
