Conor McGregor greenlights opponents using PEDs, 'I'm still going to whoop your a**'

The Irish Featherweight is not concerning himself with substances his opponents may or may not be putting into their bodies.

UFC Featherweight Conor McGregor isn't one to be shy about his opinions. There's been an ongoing war of words between FW champ Jose Aldo and #1 contender Chad Mendes following the cancellation of their UFC 176 bout which has degenerated into a lot finger-pointing and accusations about mutual steroid abuse. McGregor has already ripped Mendes for his part in that but now he's expanding his comments to a more general statement about performance enhancing drugs in advance of his UFC Dublin bout with Diego Brandao this Saturday.

Here's what McGregor told MMA Junkie:

"I don't really care about that stupid s-t. I'm just doing my thing. I'm just performing and getting better. I don't care what anyone else does.

"Take whatever you want," McGregor said. "I'm still going to whoop your a-."

Big words. McGregor will presumably be tested by the UFC on Saturday. I wonder if he'll be fighting in a random drug test state any time soon.
