Here’s the good news for Conor McGregor, Floyd Mayweather (pictured) actually knows who he is. The bad news is, he couldn’t care less.

After catching wind that McGregor claimed he would “kill” him in less than 30 seconds, Mayweather simply added “Notorious” to the growing number of thirsty people trying to get famous off his name.

“I don’t take that dude seriously. He’s just trying to get himself some publicity,” a source close to Mayweather told TMZ Sports of his reaction.

Well, if McGregor’s strategy was to get some pub it certainly worked. Did TMZ even know who McGregor was before any of this?

Mayweather clearly has bigger fish to fry. He’s set to make a guaranteed $80 million for fighting Manny Pacquiao on May 2. It has been reported he could score in the neighborhood of $180 million after his pay-per-view check comes rolling in.

McGregor, meanwhile, also has a tough task ahead of him. But not if you ask him, because taking UFC featherweight king Jose Aldo’s title on July 11 should be easier than dominating Mayweather.
