Conor McGregor can never put down his reigns when it comes to trash-talking. Furthermore, the former double champion is seemingly germophobic. Previously in 2019, Kelvin Gastelum revealed the story of his Staphylococcus infection that affected his face and body. Without a doubt, the ‘Mystic Man’ attacked Gastelum on Twitter, demanding the sterilization of the belt. However, McGregor has attacked the fighter once again, with a photo of Gastelum missing a tooth and with a blister on his face.

Gastelum was supposed to fight Nassourdine Imavov in the UFC Fight Night, on 15th January 2023. However, the onetime interim champion had to move out of the card to see to his injury.

Conor McGregor attacks Kelvin Gastelum on social media

Gastelum was forced to pull out of UFC Fight Night, owing to his mouth injury. He released a video on Instagram where surgeons were operating on his tooth. Furthermore, he put his disappointment of being unable to fight in words. He wrote, “I’m extremely disappointed to say the least. This not how I wanted to start 2023. I worked my a** off & battled through a lot of adversary and was ready to put on a hell of a show this weekend. I apologize to Imavov, his camp as well as @ufc and all the fans.”

However, McGregor was not someone who could let a probable opponent go off the hook with ease. The ‘Notorious’ posted a picture of the ‘K-19 The Widowmaker’ and confused the injury with yet another case of Staphylococcus infection.

Conor McGregor’s previous attack on Kelvin Gastelum

Back in 2019, the middleweight contender declared that he contracted a Staph infection. Although the infection was seemingly serious, the fighter revealed that the doctors from UFC took good care of him. He was put on antibiotics and recovered. However, the commission was okay with letting the former interim champion fight in the cage.

Without a doubt, the ‘Notorious’ didn’t fail on landing his attack on the middleweight fighter. He took to Twitter and wrote about Gastelum’s Staph infection. Furthermore, he demanded for the championship belts to be sterilized immediately. 

Although the current picture appears to be a similar infection, McGregor could also be wrong about it. Nonetheless, Gastelum’s bout against Imavov has now been taken by Sean Strickland
