Conor McGregor's defeat at UFC 196 left him open to a fresh batch of criticism and it is safe to say a lot of people from the fighting world have taken their opportunity to kick the Irishman while he is down.

Everyone from Nate Diaz himself to former UFC champions and potential future rivals have stuck the boot in over the past couple of weeks. They were joined recently by the uncle of Floyd Mayweather Jr - the boxing great who has had something of a media-fuelled feud with McGregor in recent months.

Jeff Mayweather, as per the Irish Independent, didn't hold back either as he ripped into the UFC star, saying McGregor and his female peer Ronda Rousey should "shut the f*** up."

"If Conor McGregor would have f****** won, oh my God, he would have been the greatest thing since f****** ice cream," said 'Money' Mayweather's uncle.

"But since he lost, now they want to give him credit for going up; going up and getting his ass whooped. You don't get no credit for that. You chose to do that."

Big name debate

He didn't just call out McGregor either, some of his wrath was saved for the UFC organization as a whole who he accused of dragging Floyd Mayweather into things:

"Everybody listening to Dana White talking that stupid sh*t about Ronda Rousey beating up men and now they jump on Conor McGregor's bandwagon, they don't got no motherf****** wagon no more. That s*** is over with.

"They don't got nothing else to talk about. It shows that they need Floyd to promote their sport."

"Floyd has never ever said that he wanted to fight one of them," Mayweather said. "He never said, 'I'll beat Ronday Rousey,' or 'I'll beat Conor McGregor.'"

UFC 194: Aldo vs. McGregor

The question about who would win in a fight between McGregor and Mayweather has been one that has sparked many a debate with both fighters given the W by competing fan bases.

The show is over

In light of his shock defeat to Diaz at UFC 196, however, Jeff Mayweather thinks McGregor's time sharing the limelight with his nephew is over:

"Like I said, they had their little moment of fame. McGregor's lasted almost a year and Rousey's lasted about a year and a half. That sh*t is over with now. They can shut the f*** up about that dumb sh*t.

"They can shut the f*** up about what a MMA fighter can do to Floyd Mayweather because ain't sh*t going to happen to Floyd Mayweather."

Headline-maker

It is true that the Irish fighter's reputation has taken a hit in the aftermath of his March 5 defeat. Nevertheless, it is bold to claim that McGregor's fame is over.

He may no longer be able to claim himself undefeated - a status Floyd Mayweather maintained until his retirement - but McGregor remains the most talked about man in UFC right now. In fact, his next fight will probably break records in the organization.

Unfortunately, it won't be against Floyd Mayweather.
