The duo went toe to toe 48 hours before their fight at UFC 205 back in 2016.
McGregor is widely known to be one of the best trash talkers in combat sport but Alvarez had his number.
"You were on welfare bra. You ain't no man, you took welfare," the American said after McGregor insisted that he's the definitive UFC cash cow.
"Don't you talk about money. You took money from single moms, single moms go on welfare.
"Don't talk about money. Keep your mouth shut when you talk about money."
McGregor had previously been on welfare and the comments clearly had an impact as he stayed silent.
Fans on Twitter have recently commented on the jab as McGregor inches closer to a return.
McGregor did go on to silence Alvarez in the fight to win the UFC Lightweight Championship.
The endgame for McGregor is longtime rival Khabib Nurmagomedov who he lost to back in 2018.
But the Irish superstar has cast doubts over a Khabib mega-rematch ever happening after retiring from MMA in June.
