Yesterday, boxer Jessie Vargas confirmed the rumor that Conor McGregor had gotten knocked out while sparring for his fight with Floyd Mayweather.
“He got knocked out in sparring already, man," Vargas exclaimed in an interview with Villanfy Media.When Mayweather was told of Vargas's words, he hedged, telling Fight Hype that he considers Vargas a trustworthy source but he still would have to have seen something like that to believe it.
50 Cent, however, has no such qualms about verification.
He jumped on IG this afternoon and ripped Conor -- who had called Fif out last week -- for his weak chin.

Did Conor make the right call when he brought 50 Cent into his fight with Floyd?
It's certainly good publicity to have 50 in the mix. But the rapper's troll skills could really sting if Conor gets knocked out on August 26th, too.
