Conor McGregor heard about Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s First Take appearance and fired back on Twitter, sending out a tweet referencing the boxing star's history of domestic violence Wednesday:

Text messages from NBA guard C.J. Watson reportedly upset Mayweather before his 2010 assault of Josie Harris, Mayweather's girlfriend at the time and mother of three of his children. Mayweather was sentenced to 90 days in jail for the assault, his latest conviction stemming from a series of domestic violence accusations over the last decade-plus.

During his appearance on First Take, Mayweather touched on his negotiations with McGregor regarding a potential megafight that would bring the former out of retirement. The 39-year-old has not fought since a September 2015 win over Andre Berto.
