Taking a dig at him, McGregor wrote, “An absolute pigeon brain this guy is. Stupid beyond belief.”

Masvidal wasn’t going to keep quiet. He tweeted, “This pea brain is the biggest fight of your life. So you’re either too scared or too stupid to get this check.”

‘The Notorious’ is looking for a comeback. He has shown interest in the welterweight division and wants to fight for the title. Considering his bulky physique, a move to the heavier weight class might be a good idea.
