Conor McGregor mocked by UFC fans on Twitter after title ambitions post

UFC’s ‘Notorious’ Conor McGregor was on the receiving end of ridicule by fight fans on Twitter after declaring his ambitions of winning another world title.

McGregor is currently recovering from a broken leg that he suffered during his trilogy encounter with Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 earlier this month.

That did not stop the Irishman from being his usual active self on Twitter. McGregor shared a screenshot saying:

“Have that belt spit shined for me.”

This tweet was later deleted, but not before his claims of winning another championship were dismissed by combat sport fans.

One user said:

“He is so far from the lightweight title. He’s a legend. What he achieved for the sport is incomparable. All he risks now is losing that status and tainting his career.”

Another fan, meanwhile, added:

“McGregor will very likely never ever be the same again inside the Octagon after this nasty career-changing lower leg injury, and will get destroyed by the top five to six ranked fighters.”

This tweet was just one of the latest controversial statements made by the Irishman responding to fierce rival Khabib’s tweet.

‘The Eagle’ had initially tweeted his congratulations to Poirier for his victory and added that:

“Good always defeats evil.”

McGregor, subsequently replied to this saying:

“Covid is good and father is evil?”

The Irishman quickly removed this but it was clear it referred to the sad passing of Khabib’s father Abdulmanap.

In addition, ‘The Notorious’ has been calling for a fourth fight against Poirier after he believed that their trilogy bout ended due to an unfortunate accident.

He has also been criticised for threatening to kill ‘The Diamond’ and wife following the stoppage defeat. In a post-fight interview with commentator Joe Rogan, McGregor said:

“In your sleep you’re getting it, in your sleep you’re dead, you and your Mrs, it ain’t over. Be careful at the club mate."

It is more likely, however, that McGregor will challenge social media star Jake Paul to a boxing match, this will unlikely take place until mid-2022 as the Irishman currently has a titanium rod in his left leg. Poirier, meanwhile, is due to challenge Charles Oliveira for the lightweight title in December of this year.

UFC 257: Twitter trolls Conor McGregor with meme after knockout loss to Dustin Poirier

Conor McGregor is known for being among the bigger trolls in all of MMA. On his rise to stardom and fame, his quick wit and social media presence made him among the most interesting people in the sport to follow. But when the biggest stars get humbled, the Internet always finds a way to bite back.

McGregor suffered his first professional TKO loss on Saturday in the main event of UFC 257 against Dustin Poirier. In the loss, the camera closed in on McGregor lying on the canvas and appearing to be out cold. He wasn't actually knocked unconscious, but in the age of social media, a screenshot is worth a thousand memes. And some of them were pretty great.

McGregor will need to go back to the drawing board after the loss. The former two-division champion said after the fight that the biggest reason for the loss was inactivity and not having the ability to get consistent cage time. That may change now as he hopes to get in at least two more fights before the year is over. 

Poirier, on the other hand, is likely to end up with a title shot after scoring another monstrous victory. The former interim champ is now 11-2 since the loss to McGregor back in 2014.

In a perfect world, Conor McGregor would disappear on his Lamborghini super yacht and enjoy life until his surgically-repaired leg was healed up and ready to go. Unfortunately, “Notorious” spends most of his waking hours obsessing over lightweight rival Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Even during the holidays.

That’s why McGregor was back on Twitter this week, taking another round of potshots at Nurmagomedov and his family. Probably because “Mystic Mac” was submitted by “The Eagle” — and now sports consecutive losses to Dustin Poirier — and has little else to use for ammunition.

“I wanna eat his children!!!!” McGregor shouted in a recently deleted tweet, a reference to the infamous Mike Tyson interview from 2000. “When’s the last time he’s even seen them actually? His wife? Mother? How about you go spend some time with your kids and family for a change and keep my name out of your mouth before you get trapped somewhere again you mightn’t be so lucky next time.”

He wasn’t trapped, he was “locked.”

Nurmagomedov was a recent guest on Tyson’s “Hotboxin’” podcast alongside Dominance MMA stablemate Henry Cejudo. “The Eagle” may be retired from combat sports, but he never turns down an opportunity to relish in McGregor’s “eternal shame of losing.”

There was a time in the not-too-distant past when McGregor was not only one of the best MMA fighters on the planet, but also a charismatic speaker who could elevate himself, his opponents, and the sport in general.

It’s too bad that fighter “doesn’t exist anymore.”

Incredible fight. Volkanovski defeats Ortega by unanimous decision.

In one of the best fights of the year, if not the best, Alexander Volkanovski defeats Brian Ortega by unanimous decision (49-46, 50-45, 50-44). Volkanovski picked Ortega apart all five rounds. It's time he got the respect he deserves.

Insane Round 3

Both fighters had big moments in what might be among the best rounds ever. Ortega had two sepearate submission attempts almost work but Volkanovski reversed both times. He then landed hard ground and pound. I lean Volkanovski here.

Explain to me why this can't get done? Both fighters dominate their competition. It's not even fun anymore to see them ruthless destroy their opponents. The first two fights were great back-and-forth scraps. Unless they get in a cage together, we're going to continue to see fights like we just did.

Shevchenko-Murphy up next

I'm actually a bit worried about Murphy. She's tough but Valentina just ragdolls opponents. She's arguably the most dominant champ in the UFC and almost always wins in dominant. fashion. Murphy said this week Valentina has never fought anyone like her. Okay. There's a reason why Shevchenko is a -1600 favorite.

Dana White reacts to Conor McGregor's retirement tweet: 'It totally makes sense'

If Conor McGregor is serious about retirement, UFC President Dana White apparently has no complaints about it.

Former UFC two-division champ McGregor (21-4 MMA, 9-2 UFC) took to Twitter early Tuesday morning and announced he was hanging up his gloves and ending his tenure as a professional fighter, which was met with surprise and skepticism from the MMA community.

One person who is seemingly not skeptical of the announcement is White, who apparently has no argument with “The Notorious” and actually agrees with his decision

“He has the money to retire, and his whiskey is KILLIN’ it,” White said in a statement obtained by MMA Junkie. “It totally makes sense. If I was him, I would retire too. He’s retiring from fighting, not from working. The whiskey will keep him busy, and I’m sure he has other things he’s working on. He has been so fun to watch. He has accomplished incredible things in this sport. I am so happy for him, and I look forward to seeing him be as successful outside of the octagon as he was in it.”

Tyron Woodley says 'dope' fight with Conor McGregor makes sense

McGregor, 30, last competed at UFC 229 in October when he suffered a fourth-round submission loss to lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in a highly anticipated affair. It marked his return to MMA competition after nearly a two-year hiatus, which included a boxing match against Floyd Mayweather.

As recently as Monday, McGregor was quoted as saying he was in negotiations for a return to action at UFC 239 in July. However, nothing was finalized.

Whether his retirement tweet stemmed from negotiations going sour or something else entirely, that remains unknown. However, he apparently has the support of White, who has promoted all 11 of his fights under the UFC banner and said his relationship with McGregor has never been especially poor.

“We really have never had a bad conversation since Conor has been in the UFC,” White said in further comment to MMA Junkie. “You know how I feel about retirement: If u are saying it … you should probably do it. I have never been upset about anyone retiring. When a fighter feels he or she should retire then I agree they should.”

McGregor’s six-month suspension for his role in the infamous UFC 229 brawl is set to be lifted April 6. Earlier this month, McGregor was arrested on strong-arm robbery charges in Miami for allegedly smashing and then stealing a fan’s phone outside a nightclub.

UFC stars Conor McGregor, Dustin Poirier talk charity PPV fight in Twitter conversation

Sep 28, 2020
  • Marc RaimondiESPN Staff Writer

Conor McGregor has attempted to book himself in yet another fight, despite past remarks that he's retired.

On Monday, the UFC superstar proposed a charity MMA fight to former opponent Dustin Poirier on Twitter. The exhibition, McGregor wrote, would be on pay-per-view and proceeds would go to Poirier's The Good Fight Foundation as well as charities of McGregor's choosing. McGregor even threw out a date and location: Dec. 12 at Point Depot in Dublin, Ireland.

"No weigh ins," McGregor wrote. "Open weight, unified rules. I will arrange all travel fare for you and family. McGregor Sports and Entertainment MMA, in association with The Good Fight Foundation. Charity Mixed Martial Arts!"

To that, Poirier, a top UFC lightweight contender, tweeted back: "I'm in! Let's do it!"

McGregor wrote in response that they would take the conversation offline and "progress the process from here."

Both men are still under contract with the UFC, which would have to approve of such a contest. If the promotion did that, it would be the first such situation of its kind. A request for comment from the UFC was not immediately returned Monday.

While McGregor said in June that he is retired, he tweeted Friday that his next fight would be a boxing match with Manny Pacquiao. McGregor's agent, Audie Attar of Paradigm Sports Management, told ESPN's Ariel Helwani that the talks between McGregor and Pacquiao, who is also managed by Attar, are real and the UFC is on board with the plan.

No date or location has been hashed out yet for that, though McGregor tweeted that it would be in the Middle East.

McGregor has been very active on Twitter over the past few days, upset that people -- specifically UFC president Dana White -- have said that he doesn't want to fight or has been turning down fights. On Friday, McGregor posted screenshots of Instagram direct messages between he and White, showing that he was interested in fighting Justin Gaethje and Diego Sanchez -- or anyone else -- back in February, before the coronavirus pandemic hit.

In an Instagram post Saturday, McGregor wrote that it was "borderline criminal" that the UFC has sidelined him since his January knockout win over Donald Cerrone at UFC 246.

White blasted McGregor on Saturday night at the UFC 253 postfight news conference, saying McGregor's posting of their messages was in violation of "man code" and "one of the dirtiest things you can do."

"You guys have been asking me about Conor McGregor forever," White said. "Did you see Conor McGregor's tweet? The retirement tweet. 'I'm retired.'"

White also said he had "no idea" about McGregor's talks with Pacquiao. McGregor tweeted Sunday that White should "stop lying."

Daukaus (10-2 MMA, 1-2 UFC) vs. Holland (21-7 MMA, 7-4 UFC) was deemed a no contest after an accidental clash of heads in the first round disrupted the action. Daukaus managed to choke Holland out, but after review from referee Dan Miragliotta of the replay, the middleweight bout was deemed a no contest at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.
