The trash talk between Donald Cerrone and Conor McGregor continues. Things kicked off at the UFC's recent "Go Big" press conference in Las Vegas, which saw both fighters trade verbal barbs. McGregor claimed he would snap Cerrone in half at 155 lbs., to which the Albuquerque local responded by telling 'The Notorious' to "sit the f**k down."
"I see stiffness when I look in that 155-pound division," McGregor said. "Slow, stiff. I feel like they're stuck in the mud almost. The featherweights, they hit like flyweights. So it's nice down there just destroying them and killing that whole division. But I have my eye on that 155 division and I see them all stuck in the mud in there."
"You have a monster here at 45, Aldo, about to beat your ass," Cerrone responded. "You've beat nobody and you think you're gonna come up to 155 and make a statement? C'mon man. Sit the f*ck down."
Now Cerrone has sniped at the Irishman from Twitter, advertising his new t-shirts being sold at MMAOverload.com. One of the t-shirts depicts a cowboy kicking a leprechaun.

Conor McGregor takes on Jose Aldo in a title unification bout at UFC 194, and if the 27-year-old successfully unifies the belts, he's promised to move up to 155 lbs. to take out Rafael dos Anjos and Donald Cerrone.
Cerrone, riding a win streak of eight, will challenge dos Anjos for the lightweight championship at UFC on FOX 17 on December 19th. The Greg Jackson fighter took on the Brazilian in 2013, but lost a fairly one-sided unanimous decision.
