Lightweight fighters were lining up to call out Conor McGregor last night at UFC On FOX, but it seems that the new featherweight title holder is enjoying the attention.
After beating up Donald Cerrone in just 66 seconds in the main event, lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos warned McGregor that it would be a big mistake for him to try to step up and take the title.
“Conor McGregor has said he wants to come to my division,” Dos Anjos said. “I don’t think that would be a smart decision for him, but I would be happy to welcome him.’
Just a couple of fights earlier Nate Diaz launched a profanity filled rant aimed at McGregor which had to be censored on the live FOX broadcast.
“Conor McGregor, you’re taking everything I’ve worked for, motherf***er. I’m going to fight your f***ing a**!” Diaz said.
So, how did McGregor respond? Well, ‘The Notorious’ appeared to be revelling in the fact that he’s the man that people just can’t stop talking about.
“Line them up on their knees with their hands out,” McGregor quipped on Instagram along with a photo of him standing in front of his new $500,000 Rolls Royce. “I want them to beg me.”
