Current UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor made headlines on Friday when he referred to WWE talent as “messed up p*ssies” during a conference call with media to promote his upcoming fight with Nate Diaz at UFC 202.
The very outspoken UFC star then took another shot at WWE talent on Sunday morning saying his comments were not made to disrespect WWE fans, but directed instead at WWE talent saying he would “slap the head off” off the roster and “twice on Sunday’s.”
WWE star Roman Reigns was the first to issue a response on Sunday. Since McGregor’s tweet went public, numerous WWE stars took to Twitter to respond to his tweet including a host of former WWE talent such as Kurt Angle, MVP and Drew Galloway.
You can check out some of the tweets below.
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 think McGregor could do well in the featherweight division……if the WWE had one. https://t.co/90XGpSICS9

So much talk for a guy who fights 15 min matches twice a year…… Good for you Conor McGaiver.

Never show a Jack Russell a mirror. It thinks it’s a majestic Irish Wolfhound. Really, just an annoying wee yapper trying to sell tickets.

On the edge of my seat for @TheNotoriousMMA s next backtracking tweet specifying what he ‘meant to say’, Captain generalization is a riot
