Conor McGregor: Diego Sanchez is a brain dead, stuttering fool who should fight me, not the winner of Gray Maynard vs. Nate Diaz

Andrew Richardson-USA TODAY Spor

Diego Sanchez had his sight set on the winner of Gray Maynard vs. Nate Diaz ... until Conor McGregor stepped into his cross hairs.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight lunatic Diego Sanchez is itching for a fight and currently targeting the winner of Gray Maynard vs. Nate Diaz, who will hook 'em up in this Saturday night's (Nov. 30, 2013) Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 18 Finale on FOX Sports 1.

Why not Conor McGregor?

Well, Sanchez says "the point is to climb the ladder" in the division, following his epic, three-round war against former Strikeforce titleholder Gilbert Melendez. While "The Dream" was unable to outlast "El Nino," their UFC 166 "Fight of the Night" sent his stock through the 155-pound roof.

Now, it's time to capitalize on it.

That's just fine with McGregor, who uncorked a handful of "Notorious" tweets on Tuesday to let Sanchez know he would be waiting to fight him next spring in Dublin, Ireland, assuming the "brain dead, stuttering fool" didn't drool all over his computer in the process.


McGregor is no stranger to trash talk, having lambasted most of his fellow featherweight fighters on the popular social media network. The outspoken Irishman -- who is willing to compete at lightweight for the right fight -- has come under fire from his peers for talking the talk before actually walking the walk.

"Notorious" is 2-0 since his April debut and is currently riding the pine after knee surgery.

In the meantime, Sanchez wants to get back into the Octagon and make hay while the sun shines. But would you prefer to see him invade Dublin and "destroy" McGregor, or go ahead and get after the winner of this weekend's main event headliner in Las Vegas?

Opinions, please.
