Conor McGregor recently angered the world of pro wrestling with his comments and it seems like he isn’t done just yet. At UFC’s media day for UFC 202, the notorious one took another dig at pro wrestling, this time at the face that runs the place.
“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 how nobody can see him, we can see him right there. He’s a big fat, 40-year-old failed Mr. Olympia motherf*****.”
McGregor also responded to Ric Flair’s comments on Twitter who claimed McGregor based his entire persona on the Nature Boy’s gimmick.
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

“I don’t know what to say to Ric Flair. This ain’t no gimmick, this is the real sh*t. I’ve got to 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 sh*t over here, if you 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.”
McGregor however, showed respect to Ric Flair as well as other wrestling personalities who he considers “dons of the game.”
“Like I said, no disrespect to the dons of the game, the McMahons. Vinny Mac is a f***ing legend. They wrote Vinny off a few years ago when he dropped from the billions and then he rose back up and now he’s back in the billionaire club. What he’s been able to do with that bunch of dweebs he has over there at the moment has been phenomenal and I respect him for that. And then of course the OGs of the game, The Rock, Stone Cold, they’re all cool motherf*****. Even Ric Flair is a cool motherf****.
I’m just speaking the truth. That new age, those guys are absolute dweebs. They just seem messed up in the head. I don’t know what it is. When I listen to them talk, when I listen to them carry themselves, they just don’t seem right in the head.”
Do you think WWE should capitalize on all this and make it into an angle or have WWE planted this from the start?
