Conor McGregor is not one to mince his words. The former two-division champion is well known for speaking his mind on whatever the issue at hand may be. This, however, has gotten him in trouble multiple times in the past, but hasn’t slowed him down.

The Notorious’ takes to Twitter ever so often to share his thoughts about anything and everything to do with the UFC. No one is safe when McGregor goes on his Twitter rants, as was the case earlier today. The likes of Kamaru Usman, Jake Paul, and Justin Gaethje were all targets as he went after each individual.

Conor McGregor pokes fun at Justin Gaethje

McGregor shared a picture that a fan page posted of him and Justin Gaethje backstage at an event. ‘The Notorious’ wrote, “Wtf guys one of the fan pages put this up. I didn’t know I ever took a pic with this dweeb. Back when I was tearing up the 145 division I didn’t even know who the f**k this gack eye even was. I’m at this game years man. Concrete block hands. Gack eye and el c*ckeye – Two 155 bums”

This is not the first time the two men have gotten into a war of words on Twitter, and Gaethje’s disdain for McGregor is very well known. Earlier this week, ‘The Highlight’ accused ‘The Notorious’ of stealing his coach’s glove design. ‘The Notorious’ hit back and claimed that he would ‘smoke’ both him and his coach at the same time. 

The former interim lightweight champion has also accused McGregor of being a ‘sh*t father and a sh*t human’ which has obviously not sat very well with Conor McGregor. The former UFC two-division champion has promised to get him back for his words. 

If McGregor were to win against Dustin Poirier in July, a fight against Justin Gaethje would be on the horizon for ‘The Notorious’ as ‘The Highlight’s sits at #2 at 155-pounds.
