For more than a week, MMA fighter Conor McGregor has been calling out WWE fans as well as some of the legendary wrestlers such as John Cena.
He made comments recently trash talking the WWE as a whole saying it is nothing like “the real deal” when he is fighting in the UFC.
He tweeted out that he stood by what he said and that he could slap the heads off the WWE roster.
On Friday, McGregor spoke to the media at a gym press conference to promote his upcoming fight for UFC 202 against Nate Diaz where he called out the entire WWE and all their fans.
“I think some of these WWE guys think this is…they are not right in the head—some of them. I mean, the new age are dweebs. Let’s be honest here—they’re absolute dweebs,” Mcgregor said before teeing off on WWE legend John Cena.
“What’s the main guy? John Cena. He’s 40. He’s 40 years of age. He’s walking around in a luminous orange t-shirt and a headband talking about nobody can see him. We can see him right there. He’s a big fat, 40-year-old failed Mr. Olympia mother f*cker.” McGregor said.
Some wrestlers issued McGregor a challenge, to which McGregor had a message for them.
“I don’t know what to say to Ric Flair,” McGregor said. “This ain’t no gimmick. This is the real sh*t. I’ve gotta get in and fight a man for real. With no script, with no nothing. He was talking about bringing some other wrestler guys out to challenge me. Come bring it, then. This is the real shit over here. You know want to come over, we can fight no problem. A few of them are talking about the street and all. If they want to do that, come at me and see what happens.”
