Conor McGregor wants his UFC return to be against 'brain-dead stuttering fool' Diego Sanchez in Dublin, Ireland

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

In a series of tweets, UFC Featherweight Conor McGregor called out Diego Sanchez and made liberal use of insult and calumny to do so.

UFC Featherweight Conor McGregor has been enduring an injury-imposed time out since winning his second UFC bout over Max Holloway at the first UFC Fight Night on Fox Sports 1 in August. But that hasn't stopped him from calling out UFC Lightweight Diego Sanchez who offended McGregor with some critical Tweets in advance of the Holloway bout.

Sanchez doubled down on the smack talk by promising to 'humble' McGregor if the UFC booked the bout.

Now the pair has taken to Twitter once again and let rip:

What do you think? Is McGregor biting off more than he can chew? Does the fight make any kind of sense for Sanchez who has fought at Welterweight more than at Lightweight and has never cut down to Featherweight.
