CONOR MCGREGOR has reignited his feud with Floyd Mayweather by claiming he played "ping pong" with his head in their boxing match.
Mayweather welcomed the UFC's poster boy to the boxing world in August 2017 for a lucrative showdown, which was aptly dubbed "The Money Fight".
McGregor turned in a better-than-expected display against the former five-weight world champion but ended up suffering a tenth-round TKO defeat.
The Notorious has held on to the success he had in the Sin City showdown and used it to taunt Mayweather on numerous occasions down the year.
And he did so again this week in a since-deleted tweet which included training footage.
The Irishman tweeted: “Don’t forget, I played ping pong with Floyd’s head. I carried him!"
