Notorious hit back at Green after he told him to take off the top
CONOR McGREGOR is now engaged in a war of words with NBA star Draymond Green – telling him: “I don’t know who the f*** you are”.
Green hit out at McGregor after the Irish superstar was pictured wearing a Golden State Warriors jersey, Green’s team, to mock rival Floyd Mayweather.
McGregor, 28, wore a throwback CJ Watson jersey – a not-so-subtle reference to Mayweather’s past history of domestic violence.
Mayweather was sentenced to 90 days in county jail in 2012 for battery against Josie Harris – the mother of his three children.
The boxer was charged after Watson, who wore the No 23 Warriors shirt between 2007 and 2010, allegedly slept with Harris.
Mayweather was also ordered to complete 100 hours of community service and attend a 12-month domestic violence programme, on top of paying a £2,000 fine.
But Green, who has helped the Warriors win two NBA titles in the last three seasons, had no qualms on stepping in on Mayweather’s behalf.
He currently wears Warriors’ No 23 jersey.

That’s when the acid-tongued McGregor hit back.
“That’s CJ Watson mate,” the Irishman replied.
“I don’t know who the f*** you are. No disrespect tho kid, keep hustling and stay in school.
“Now ask yourself why I’m rocking CJ when I don’t know or give a f*** about basketball.
“I dribble heads off the floor. Not a ball. This is no game here kid.”
