WATCH: Conor McGregor says he'd like to fight 50 Cent

Headlines 29/10/2019

UFC sensation Conor McGregor recently announced his return to fighting, listing former opponents Nate Diaz and Khabib Nurmagomedov as potential future fight candidates.

But now he's added another name to that list, and this time he's opted for someone that is completely outside of the MMA world: 50 Cent.

McGregor was once under the impression that both he and 50 were friends, mainly due to their mutual beef with Floyd Mayweather:

"Throughout the course of the Floyd Mayweather build-up I used him as a tool, a promotional tool on the free also, I knew he was linked to Floyd so I tied him in also and he responded big time and capitalised on that audience so I was very thankful."

But things took a turn for the worst when 50's trolling ways took aim at the former UFC champ, with the rapper dedicating a number of less than flattering memes to the Irishman.

"But then after that he began a little tirade against me on social media, particularly Instagram where he'd make these memes about me constantly.

"Every time I'd go onto the internet I'd see 50 Cent had posted up some new stupid meme and I wrote on one of the memes - old man on the internet making memes - and then he blocked me.

"So he's had to block me, and I still see sometimes, I still get tagged in other people saying he's saying this and he's saying that.

He added: "So I'd like to have a knock-off with 50 yeah, so if you're listening 50, let's get it going bud."

Who've you got as your winner?
