During the second leg of a four-day worldwide press tour Wednesday, Conor McGregor doubled down on one of his controversial comments directed at Floyd Mayweather Jr.        

TMZ Sports passed along video of McGregor telling Mayweather to "dance for me, boy" as the crowd in Toronto did the "ole" chant (warning contains NSFW language):

McGregor received criticism for making the same comment during Tuesday's press conference in Los Angeles, with Yahoo Sports' Ryan McKinnell offering this take:

Floyd Mayweather Sr. told TMZ Sports he didn't see anything wrong with McGregor's initial comment: "Racist? I don't know what that got to do with race. This is a boxing match. I don't know what that got to do with no racists."

This isn't the first time McGregor has been accused of making insensitive comments to build up a fight. In February 2016, he caught heat for remarks made at a press conference leading up to his first match with Nate Diaz. 

Mayweather and McGregor will continue their press conference tour with stops in New York on Thursday and London on Friday.
