Conor McGregor, Irish professional mixed martial artist and boxer, has called out Curtis Jackson, US rapper better known as 50 Cent, with a challenge to fight the rapper over his continued social media memes about him.

The former Ultimate Fighting Championship featherweight and lightweight champion made the calls during a promotional video for Proper Twelve Irish Whiskey.

“I’d have to probably say 50 Cent, I’d like to fight him,” said McGregor, when asked to speak on who he would love to fight — celebrities included.

“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 we capitalised on that audience so I was very thankful.

“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 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 his saying that.

“So I’d like to have a knock-off with 50 yeah, so if you’re listening 50 – let’s get it going bud.”

50 Cent is yet to respond directly to McGregor’s rants, as of Thursday. 50 Cent had previously bragged that he could beat the former two-division champion in a fight.

The rapper had, in the past, also made some hilarious memes of the fighter, some of which have been deleted.

Below are some of the memes that can be seen on Twitter:
