Conor McGregor mocked Henry Cejudo following his UFC 288 loss for the bantamweight title against Aljamain Sterling.
On fight week, Cejudo took aim at McGregor as he said he would never coach or train the Irishman for a few reasons. So, to no surprise, after Cejudo suffered a split decision loss to Sterling for the title, McGregor quickly took to Twitter to take aim at him and said it was the easiest money he’s ever made.
“Easiest money I’ve ever made. Not a scratch on Aljo! Congrats Funkmaster! Good little fighter is Henry but give it a rest with these agendas all the time. The guy is sub 20 fights in his career. His little feints an all ahaha omg please teach me mastermind lol. Done the splits like a stripper and got dumped on his ass he did hahaha oh lord it’s tasty,” McGregor wrote in a deleted tweet.
Then, after the tweet, Conor McGregor posted a video sharing some advice to Henry Cejudo – mocking him for being a coach and still losing.
‘Coach MacDaddy in the place’
“Alright, here we go. Coach MacDaddy in the place. Congrats Funkmaster, great fight. I knew you were gonna win that, my man. Easiest money I’ve ever made. I went shopping in advance, and everything Gucci-ed out… Coach MacDaddy in the place, show you what’s popping. Henry, this one’s for you, my man,” McGregor said in the video. “Some of the things, oh my God, you blew my (mind) I couldn’t believe some what I was seeing. You were here like this, right? And you were doing this little thing, and I was like ‘What the fuck is that? I never seen nothing like it, this guy is a f**kin genius, yeah!’ So you were doing this really well, yeah. If you had just done it this way. Man, you would’ve fuckin cleaned shop, bro! You’d have taken him to the cleaners, my man! But anyway, you know yourself. Coach MacDaddy, I don’t charge a fee because I’m already set, yeah.”
Following Conor McGregor’s video of giving Henry Cejudo advice, Henry Cejudo was asked about it at the UFC 288 post-fight press conference. Cejudo wasn’t thrilled with it due to the fact he is fresh off his loss to Aljamain Sterling but he knows McGregor can’t tell him anything as he believes the Irishman doesn’t have anything on his résumé.
“Conor McGregor don’t got s**t on my résumé, that’s all I’ve got to say,” Cejudo said at the post-fight press conference. “He’s been stopped after a three-year layoff. What I was able to do and compete and hearing the boos from the crowd after they announced the winner, that says a lot to me. But there’s still levels and I still know that I can get better too. It’s okay. Bring the hate, maybe it will motivate me. I’m not one of these guys—Yeah, I’m a little pissed because I hate losing, but I love it. I love it. So thank you, Conor.”
As of right now, McGregor hasn’t responded to Cejudo’s response after UFC 288 and whether or not he will is uncertain.
