McGregor and Mayweather will face off on Saturday evening in Las Vegas.

50 Cent was brought into the stare-down by McGregor who compared him with fellow rap mogul Jay-Z.

According to McGregor, 50 Cent should learn from Jay-Z, who recently released his 13th platinum album ‘4:44’, on how an empire is ran.

He said: “50 Cent ya b***,” referring to Mayweather and 50 Cent, McGregor stressed “You and 50, are two fake money b****es.

“He is bankrupt and you are about to be.”

McGregor asked his opponent to listen to Jay-Z’s ‘4:44’ and learn from it, after which he should give 50 Cent the same album to learn from.

And in his response, 50 Cent shared a footage on Instagram of the stare-down and told McGregor to focus on his contender and not him.
