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.
Coming from a guy who built a career copying my persona, I expected the type of class we get from Ronda or Anderson. pic.twitter.com/iVoC0Xva5g— Ric Flair® (@RicFlairNatrBoy) August 7, 2016
