Ric Flair responds to Conor McGregor's anti-WWE rant: 'You're welcome for your gimmick'

Conor McGregor's recent comments slamming the WWE and its talents did not sit well with "The Nature Boy" Ric Flair.

Conor McGregor unsurprisingly made the headlines after last week’s UFC 202 pre-fight conference call. This time, he lambasted the WWE and most of the talents on its roster.

"For the most part, those WWE guys are p*ssies, to be honest. They're messed up p*ssies, if you ask me," McGregor said during Friday’s presser. "Fair play to Brock [Lesnar], he got in and fought, but at the end of the day he was juiced up to the f*cking eye balls, so how can I respect that? And then what's the other guy? The other guy hasn't fought yet, so I don't know about him yet."

"There's some dons in that wrestling game. The McMahons, they're dons. Triple H is a don. The Rock is a don. But the rest of them are p*ssies."

Such controversial statements would easily draw a response from various of the WWE’s talents, with legend Ric Flair being one of them. Through a series of tweets he recently posted, "The Nature Boy" gave McGregor a piece of his mind.

McGregor faces Nate Diaz in a non-title welterweight rematch at UFC 202 on August 20th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
