Conor McGregor is ready to roll with the Gotti family in order to fight a common enemy. 

Things went from bad to worse on Sunday when John Gotti III stepped inside the squared circle for an exhibition scrap with undefeated boxing legend Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather. Through five and a half rounds, Gotti and Mayweather were jawing back and forth, getting more heated as the fight marched on. Struggling to keep the two men in check for the majority of the bout, referee Kenny Bayless finally had enough and called for the stoppage via disqualification in round six.

Moments later, a heated Gotti attempted to get around Bayless to continue attacking Mayweather. Chaos ensued as both entourages poured into the ring and began throwing punches. 

Of course, a crazy moment in the world of combat sports wouldn’t be complete without Conor McGregor’s input. Following Sunday’s skirmish, the Irishman quickly tweeted and deleted his response, siding with John Gotti III and declaring himself an ally. 

“I back the Gottis,” McGregor wrote in a since-deleted tweet. “The war is on.”

Conor McGregor and ‘Money’ are no strangers to one another, having competed in a high-profile professional boxing bout in 2017, the last of Mayweather’s 50-0 run. McGregor suffered a 10th-round TKO against Mayweather.  

John Gotti III and His Family Respond to Sunday Night’s Circus Inside the Ring

It didn’t take long for the Gotti family to escalate things further on social media. Nicolette Gotti, the daughter of John Gotti Jr., decided to throw her two cents into the situation with some very NSFW words aimed at the Mayweather family.

“Floyd Mayweather your daughter was ran through by [an] animal with 12 different baby mamas – your little circus animal – [you’re] all a pack of zoo animals,” Gotti’s sister Nicolette added in an Instagram story. “I swear on my kids I’m coming for your daughter, it may be two years, three years from now but I’m coming c*nt.”

John Gotti III himself addressed the situation online and echoed the sentiments of his sister.

“Punk b*tch Floyd Mayweather, [you’re] my enemy for life,” Gotti wrote on Instagram. “Bum never put me down or stopped me. It was a DQ for no reason. Can’t wait to run into that fat f*ck in the red hat from Floyd’s team, [we’re] going to see.”

Gotti III is the grandson of the notorious New York mobster and head of the Gambino crime family, John Gotti. At his peak, Gotti was one of the most powerful and dangerous crime bosses in the United States. Gotti was convicted in 1992 for a bevy of crimes, including five counts of murder, conspiracy to murder, racketeering, loansharking, illegal gambling, obstruction of justice, bribery, and tax evasion. It only took a jury 14 hours to find him guilty of all charges. 

Gotti was remanded to a U.S. penitentiary in Marion, Illinois where he remained for the majority of his time behind bard. He died in 2002, four years after being diagnosed with throat cancer. 

Gotti’s family was the subject of a reality series in 2004 dubbed Growing Up Gotti. It was canceled after two seasons.
