One can always trust Conor McGregor to never miss an opportunity to take a shot at a foe. The Irishman once again proved that underneath all the 'nice guy' persona, when it comes to trash talking, he still has what it takes.

Ahead of Floyd Mayweather's 44th birthday on February 24, Conor McGregor wished him on social media, but not without an accompanying jab. Conor McGregor said, "Happy birthday Floyd! We miss you on the Forbes", alluding to the fact that the undefeated boxer missed out on the 2020 list of Forbes World's Highest-Paid Athletes.

Is Conor McGregor on Forbes list?

Thanks to the 2017 'Money Fight' with Conor McGregor, where he knocked out 'The Notorious' in the tenth round of the bout, Floyd Mayweather had taken home $275 million.

It made him the top name on Forbes 2018 list of The World's Highest-Paid Athletes as well as on the list of Top 100 Celebrities. However, he was dropped from both the lists in 2019.

Conor McGregor ranked at no. 16 on the Highest-Paid Athletes list last year, with tennis maestro Roger Federer and soccer legends Christiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi at numbers 1,2, and 3 respectively.
