Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson recently said he could beat UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor in a street fight.
Prior to making his professional boxing, McGregor insulted 50 Cent during one of the press conferences for his fight with Floyd “Money” Mayweather. Jackson is known for being friends with Mayweather.
During a recent interview, 50 Cent was asked about McGregor’s comments about him.
“I was like, dude, this fool didn’t know if he was fighting Floyd or me,” 50 Cent said about McGregor.
50 Cent was then asked if he thought he could beat McGregor in a fight.
“In the street? Yeah!” 50 Cent said. “C’mon, he weighs 150 pounds, man!”
Even though McGregor is one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world of MMA, 50 Cent is a former Golden Gloves boxer and would have a massive size advantage over the UFC champion.
