Conor McGregor recently shared a cryptic tweet aimed at Pimblett. In a recent interview, ‘The Baddy’ gave everyone the back story behind the tweet. He said, “Well, when he was in Liverpool back in 2017, he was supposedly outside my house. I don’t know if he was outside wanting me to come and party with him, or looking to fight.” 

‘The Baddy’ continued, “But he was meant to be outside my house in the middle of the night. But, he must have been at the wrong house lad cause my mum has CCTV lad. Obviously, if he was outside my house, that was getting videoed and put all over Instagram… I wished he would have knocked on lad, cause at the time I was out partying all the time. And I would have been partying with him.”
