Conor McGregor Responds to Jared Leto

The Irish central posted an article in which Leto spoke about McGregor. In the article, Leto said,” If we do the UFC movie, if I was younger, I’d play Conor McGregor. I got the beard. What Conor does and what these guys and gals do is just extraordinary…. I’m too old to do Conor, probably, but you never know. We could maybe use some CGI.”

McGregor read this article and took to social media to respond. He quoted this article on Twitter, saying, “Jared Leto, I invite you to come and practice the part with me! @jaredleto.”
