Just as the rivalry between Conor McGregor and Michael Bisping began to heat up, the Irish superstar is putting it to bed, calling their war of words a simple misunderstanding.
McGregor is set to make his major motion picture debut in a remake of the 1989 classic Road House. While this will be his first real foray into acting, the former champ-champ saw it as an opportunity to take a jab at Michael Bisping’s acting skills. This prompted Bisping to respond on his ‘Believe You Me‘ podcast calling McGregor a “d*ckhead.” That’s when McGregor went off the rails.
In a series of deleted tweets and a voice note, McGregor went off on Bisping threatening the former middleweight champion saying, “I’ll cave your head in.”
Bisping quickly addressed the situation, saying that his response to Conor McGregor’s initial comments was nothing more than a misinterpreted joke. Clearing the air on the most recent episode of his podcast, Bisping said:
“If you watched the show, we were having a laugh,” Bisping said. “It’s a f*cking joke, obviously, there was no threats on my end whatsoever. But he kind of flipped a lid, didn’t he? He lost his mind. Anyway, Conor, relax buddy. Jesus goddamn Christ. There you go.”
Conor McGregor Squashes The Beef With Michael Bisping in Voice Note
Conor McGregor once again recorded a voice message to Bisping, this time claiming that in his initial comments about ‘The Count’ that he was simply acting and promptly squashed the brief, but intense beef that the two former champions had between them.
“Hey, Mike, it’s Conor here,” McGregor said in the clip. “I saw you didn’t understand that I was simply acting. I thought you would’ve known. Brother, all love, my man. God bless the show, God bless the fam, and God bless my man. Oh yeah!”
It appears that the rivalry is over between the two. At least, for now. With his penchant for stirring the pot and creating headlines from seemingly innocent interactions, Conor McGregor could opt to rekindle this brief spat with ‘The Count’ at the mere drop of a hat. Or in his case, a paddy cap.
