If you thought the gym mural or the expletively-pinstriped suit was something else, Conor McGregor has once again outdone himself in terms of trash talking. 

For his latest shot at his upcoming opponent Floyd Mayweather, McGregor dug deep, real deep. 

By now, you've probably seen that photo making the rounds: the Irish mixed martial arts champion donning a throwback #23 Golden State Warriors jersey. 

Odd, right? Why such an obscure choice of workout wear?

The biggest story to come out of all this is Draymond Green, two-time NBA Champion and current owner of the #23 jersey for the Warriors calling out McGregor for wearing the jersey on Instagram.


We rocking with Floyd bro not you... take that off bruh @thenotoriousmma

A post shared by Draymond Green (@money23green) on

"We rocking with Floyd bro not you... take that off bruh @thenotoriousmma" Green's IG post read. 

Before being buried in a bevy of "hold this L" and "Delete your account" comments aimed at Green, "The Notorious" managed to clap back, and it was nothing but pure savagery. 

Conor McGregor responds to Draymond Green

"That's CJ Watson mate, I don't know who the f**k you are. No disrespect tho kid, keep hustling and stay in school." McGregor responded, before going full-on psycho killer with his next comment. 

"Now ask yourself why I'm rocking CJ when I don't know or give a f**k about basketball. I dribble heads off the floor. Not a ball. This is no game here kid."

My goodness. 

But now that he mentioned it, why? Why would McGregor put on a C.J. Watson jersey? 

Does he simply like throwback jerseys? 

Is McGregor actually a basketball hipster and likes wearing obscure jerseys?

No, no, no. 

This is Conor McGregor we're talking about. This was planned. 

This means something. 

 As it turns out, Mayweather and Watson have been involved in headlines before. 

Back in 2013, Floyd Mayweather was incarcerated for physically assaulting former partner Josie Harris. 

The reason for Mayweather's attack on Harris? According to Yahoo Sports, it was because text messages Harris had recieved from...

...CJ Watson. 

Ladies and gentlemen, Conor McGregor went there. 

Love him or hate him, you can't deny that this man plays mind games like no one else can.
