UFC star Conor McGregor, who faces off with Nate Diaz at UFC 202 tomorrow night in Las Vegas, made headlines the last two weeks throwing insults at the WWE roster. This naturally started a war of words between McGregor and WWE talent on Twitter.
Former WWE star CM Punk, who makes his MMA debut at UFC 203 next month, told Peter Rosenberg of Hot 97 this week that he was surprised so many WWE stars responded to McGregor adding, “They got worked. I mean, come on. Just stop. Just knock it off.”
Seth Rollins was asked on ESPN this week about McGregor and had this to say.
Alfred Konuwa of Forbes.com also passed along an interview with current NXT Champion Samoa Joe who also addressed the recent comments by McGregor.
“I think Conor McGregor is a promoter, and I’m not here to promote any of his fights. If he were here in WWE, that would be a different story, but until that happens I don’t feel like I need to address it.”
