CONOR McGREGOR has responded in a now-deleted tweet following Manny Pacquiao's huge £6.8million court battle.
Pacquiao in 2020 signed with Paradigm Sports management, who also represent the company's highest-earner McGregor.
But PacMan failed to have a fight under Paradigm and was instead sued for breach of contract.
Following a case in California, Pacquiao was left to owe $8m (£6.3m), with £4m in damages, £1.7m in legal fees and additional 10 percent annual interest on the verdict amount for three years.
McGregor, 34, took to social media, reacting to the news by posting: "And don't let it happen again, @MannyPacquiao."
And in a now-deleted tweet, he added: "Manny owes 8 in all. 5.1 he owes and then 2.1 in legal costs.

"Legal fees are heavy but that's what we do. Heavy weight operations."
Paradigm signed Pacquiao, 44, as a client three years ago amid rumours of a fight with McGregor, who lost to Floyd Mayweather in 2017.
A bout with Mikey Garcia was also in the works until Pacquiao was later announced to be facing Errol Spence Jr.
American Spence, 33, pulled out injured and was replaced by Yordenis Ugas, who won the fight and sent Pacquiao into retirement.

But Paradigm alleged that Pacquiao's other representatives – Al Haymon’s Premier Boxing Champions – interfered with their deal.
It led to Paradigm filing the lawsuit, which Pacquiao lost when the jury ruled that he acted in bad faith.
The Orange County jury voted 9-3 in favour of Paradigm in the case.
Paradigm CEO Audie Attar said in a statement: "We are elated to learn of the jury’s ruling in Paradigm’s favor in our suit against Manny Pacquiao.
"The jury plainly found that Pacquiao testified falsely in denying Paradigm’s claims against him, and his excuses for his conduct proves our case that a breach of contract was committed.
"Hopefully, Manny will have learned a lesson from the verdict and will henceforth act with the honesty and integrity that was so lacking in his treatment of Paradigm."
Pacquiao retired as a professional following defeat to Ugas, 36, but returned last December for an exhibition bout.
The Filipino icon has revealed his next exhibition is set for the summer while he has also opened the door to a full boxing comeback.
