Conor McGregor has been on a social media rampage as of late. His most recent target: fellow ex-double champ Daniel Cormier.
“The Notorious” seemingly took offense to DC’s previous comments saying his recent behavior could be a “cry for help.” That led to the Irishman posting this (now deleted) tweet about Cormier, which the ESPN analyst responded by urging McGregor to stop worrying about him and to “get off the internet.”
McGregor continued to unload on Cormier by calling him a “fat mess” in a series of tweets which he, of course, also deleted soon after.
Now, these are all part and parcel of the sport’s often controversial entertainment side, and a fight between these two isn’t even close to happening. But that still urged Michael Bisping to send out a friendly warning to McGregor.
“Careful what you wish for,” Bisping said on a recent episode of his Believe You Me podcast. “Careful who you’re picking fights with — because I’m not disrespecting Conor McGregor — but I don’t care what Conor McGregor it is, whether it’s double-champ Conor McGregor… DC is gonna f—ng pull you limb from limb.
“He could do it one-handed, he could do it with one eye, two eyes, no eyes. He could do it after 25 Modelos.
“That ain’t a fight. That is murder, that is assault, somebody call the cops!”
McGregor won’t be back in action until 2022 as he recovers from a broken leg he sustained at UFC 264.
