Justin Gaethje Slams Conor McGregor With Twitter Message
It seems like the only top Lightweights in the UFC that are not currently scheduled to fight are Conor McGregor and Justin Gaethje. It would appear that Gaethje is trying to change that.
Conor McGregor has not competed since losing his fight to Khabib Nurmagomedov in November. Since then, he has been primarily active on Twitter. It seems that most UFC events end with a message from McGregor on social media. However, MMA is not the only thing on his mind.
When McGregor took this boxing match, it left a lot of fighters upset. He was holding the UFC’s Lightweight title, which then caused the division to sit at a halt. So, it is safe to say that when McGregor called for this rematch, it was met with disdain. Not least of which, comes from #5 ranked contender Justin Gaethje.
Gaethje replied to McGregor’s tweet, giving him a piece of his mind.
Do it the right way pussy. Stop shitting on the integrity of the sport. You want @TeamKhabib again you fight me, or the winner of Cowboy and Ferguson or get the fuck out of here and enjoy all that money.

“Do it the right way p—y. Stop shitting on the integrity of the sport. You want @TeamKhabib again you fight me, or the winner of Cowboy and Ferguson or get the f–k out of here and enjoy all that money.”
Now to be clear, it is hard to be certain that these words came directly from Gaethje. He is managed by Ali Abdelaziz, who has a tendency to use his fighter’s social media accounts. Ali also has a history of hurling insults at McGregor.
Either way, a bout between Justin Gaethje and Conor McGregor would be a fun one.
