Less than favorable omments made by Conor McGregor about the WWE at the UFC 202 media call last week angered fans of the pro-wrestling organization and has led to a war of words between ‘The Notorious’ and some of it’s lycra-clad stars.
“For the most part, those WWE guys are pussies,” McGregor had stated on the media call for his upcoming rematch with Nate Diaz on August 20th. “They’re messed up pussies, if you ask me.
“Fair play to Brock, he got in and fought but, at the end of the day, he’s juiced up to the f—— eyeballs. How can I respect that?
After being bombarded on social media with abuse from WWE fans, McGregor penned a response on social media that took the trash talking to the next level.
“I didn’t mean no disrespect to the @wwe fans,” McGregor claimed on Twitter. “What I meant to say was that I’d slap the head off your entire roster. And twice on Sunday’s.”
Naturally that caught the attention of a number of WWE’s biggest stars who were quick to respond in kind.
“Coming from a guy who built a career copying my persona, I expected the type of class we get from Ronda or Anderson. After Diaz finishes you again, I dare you to try guys like Dolph, Brock, or Fit. Oh you’re welcome for your gimmick” — Ric Flair
“So much talk for a guy who fights 15 min matches twice a year…… Good for you Conor McGaiver” – Rusev MACHKA
“The way Nate Diaz Stockton slapped you or nah? I don’t dislike McGregor. He’s just making money and getting people to talk.
But I bet on Diaz last fight. I’ll bet on Diaz again. $$$$” – MVP
“I beg to differ kid” — Baron Corbin
“I think McGregor could do well in the featherweight division……if the WWE had one.” – AJ Styles

“very funny little guy. Why don’t you get your head out of Dana White’s ass.” — Kurt Angle
“Never show a Jack Russell a mirror. It thinks it’s a majestic Irish Wolfhound. Really, just an annoying wee yapper trying to sell tickets.” – Sheamus
“Would you prefer to find us individually or have us all line up at once? I know your time is valuable, sir.” – ShinigamE
“I would pay good $$ to see @RealKurtAngle STRETCH THE PISS outta @TheNotoriousMMA and make him tap. #itstrue.” — Bubba Ray Dudley
“Sorry pal no disrespect to u, but my fights are legit, unlike the fixed fights u have in @UFC. I’ll embarrass u.” – Chris Jericho
