Kavanagh was speaking at a news conference in Glasgow, where another of his UFC fighters, Gunnar Nelson, is set to face Santiago Ponzinibbio this Sunday and he will jet out to the United States on Monday to re-join McGregor's camp.
McGregor even blasted Mayweather's latest business venture where he invested in a gentlemen's club in Las Vegas called "Girl Collection".
He also hit out at his dress code once again. Twenty-eight years of age, I'm getting fight checks and promoter checks. "Dance for me!" McGregor said. He was talking about how he is going to knock me out, you know. And finally more people are calling him out about it.
"I'd like to sleep on it, but it took me by surprise", he said. The Irishman menacingly chewed his gum in an effort to intimidate his opponent but Mayweather remained stone-faced and never once took his gaze off of McGregor.

Many deemed McGregor's "dancing monkeys" comment as a direct reference to the fighters sparring in Apollo Creed's "Tough Gym" in Los Angeles, who were all black. "Cutting their mics would go against the premise, which is to deliver these fighters to the masses and let Mayweather and McGregor take center stage".
"I do numbers, I make money", Mayweather said.
McGregor believed Showtime, the network which will broadcast the August 26 super-fight, had made the decision to deny him the ability to respond to the 49-0 boxing great. Sure, he's a fictional character played by Sylvester Stallone, but outside of Mike Tyson appearing in those Hangover movies, he's pretty much the only thing I've ever liked about boxing.
With high drama, jibes, abuses, low-blows and big money, this is not just a boxing fight but a grand spectacle, and a money-spinning show.
