It would not be a normal fight week without McGregor pipping up on social media calling someone out. This time it was his biggest rival’s protege, Makhachev.
Friday morning, McGregor went on a Twitter rant saying he would fight him and has embarrassing ground and pound.
“I’ll fight that shit stain makchavich, no sweat.” McGregor wrote of Makhachev. “Embarrassing g’n’p the other night imo. Pitiful punching. And then bottles the rda fight after mouthing of him lol. Embarrassing,” McGregor wrote. “Watch when I come back. Same as before. Anyone. Any weight. Anywhere. Game full of shit stains.
“Full mount g’n’p and the guy bounces up not a scratch, huggin and kissin. Talkin bout thanks for the match etc. If that’s me there’s holes left in their head like they been smacked with a sock full of golf balls. Don’t even know where they are. Caramel butter skin strikes again!”
Conor wasn’t done yet.
“Am I the only one that sees this stuff for what it is or what’s the craic ? Not a scratch, man. Embarrassing!
“G’n’P so good I bounce up an smack your whole family around. Rat family. Call the mystic mac exterminator.”
McGregor also said he has another scan on his leg on Monday.
“The sooner the better this leg heals fully and we can get the fuck back going again, Proper! It’s coming 100%! My next scan is this Monday, he wrote.“
McGregor has been out of action since he broke his leg last year at UFC 264. While he does a great job keeping himself in the headlines, whether it be good or bad, the Irish superstar was brought up in the lightweight title picture. UFC president Dana White said there would be a lot of variables.
Makhachev is coming off a quick first-round submission win over Bobby Green last weekend. He was offered to step in this weekend at UFC 272, but according to White, he turned it down and now will have to fight Beneil Dariush, a fight that was supposed to happen last week.
