Conor McGregor might be drunk.
No, not because he’s Irish, sheesh, because it’s New Year’s Day! And to celebrate, the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion is lighting up Twitter with his take on UFC 219 ... and a few other things.
“That Dagestani was dog shit the other night, you's are all nuts,” McGregor wrote in response to reactions like this one. “Game full of sloppy bums asking to be slept. Pay me my worth and Kings back. Truly truly truly get on your fucking knees and beg me. Otherwise I don't give a bollox. My whiskey is out this year and thats Diddy bread.”
I don’t know what Diddy bread is, so I googled it and got this.
The Dagestani he’s referring to is top lightweight contender Khabib Nurmagomedov, who battered and bruised Edson Barboza at the UFC 219 pay-per-view (PPV) event last Saturday night in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Watch the video highlights here.
Nurmagomedov is likely to fight interim titleholder Tony Ferguson at some point within the next few months (because of this), with the winner moving on to unify the titles against McGregor this summer.
Right after that “mess” gets cleaned up.
Until then, all we can do is speculate on what would happen if “The Eagle” was able to force “Notorious” to make good on this promise.
Good luck with that.
