UFC 202 video: McGregor says entire 'WWE universe' will be watching Diaz fight

Conor McGregor explains his recent diss at the WWE and says their entire roster will be watching UFC 202.

Earlier this month, UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor sounded off on the WWE roster.

'The Notorious' called most of the WWE athletes 'pussies' and specifically called out 'failed Mr. Olympia', John Cena, who is one of the company's flagship stars. McGregor has also gone back-and-forth with Sheamus in the past, referring to the Irish WWE star as a 'phoney'.

Many wrestlers, including Ric Flair and Kurt Angle, responded to McGregor on Twitter.

McGregor, who will rematch Nate Diaz in a welterweight tilt at UFC 200, says he's having fun with it all and claims the 'WWE universe' will be watching on August 20.

"It's been amusing watching all of these dweebs scutter around," McGregor said to Kenny Florian and Daniel Cormier on UFC Tonight. "They're flapping all over the place. They don't know what to do when a real man shows up and questions their.......whatever it is that they do - I don't even know what it is they do.

"It is what it is; I'm laughing all the way to the bank with it. Let all them boys and all that WWE universe tune in this Saturday at UFC 202."

Diaz vs. McGregor II, which headlines UFC 202, takes place Saturday, August 20, at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
