Mac attack! McGregor goes on tweet and delete rampage during UFC 265

New, 37 comments

The former double champ does what he wants, which apparently includes tweeting then deleting angry messages at Daniel Cormier and fans.

Conor McGregor hasn’t exactly been making many fans with his recent social media behavior. His posts range from poolside drinking photos/videos to deranged heckling of Khabib and Dustin Poirier’s family members. Maybe one leads to the other? He’s also been fond of making funny faces in the mirror, showing off his new whiter-than-white teeth.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a UFC pay-per-view (PPV) event without McGregor popping online to tweet his way through it. And true to his manic reputation lately, he started off with two aggressive tweet-and-deletes, the first angled toward Daniel Cormier and the second to his haters, I guess?

Take a look:

Twitter

It doesn’t take a crystal ball to get this one. Cormier recently said McGregor’s over the line comments about Khabib’s father were a “cry for help.” So now McGregor is calling Cormier fat. The other one, well ... we assume it’s directed to the thousands of fans who clap back in McGregor’s replies whether his posts are toxic or not.

Twitter

With that out of his system, McGregor switched gears and went full good guy for the rest of the evening, posting family photos and heaping praise on the performances of UFC 265 fighters and Irish Olympians.

McGregor praising Jose Aldo? What is going on. Is he high? Maybe ...

With McGregor unable to even consider a wheelchair boxing bout by the end of the year, we better get prepared for a lot of this tweeting since it’s the only thing keeping “Notorious” occupied after leg rehab.
