Conor McGregor has spoken.
The former two-division UFC Champion has responded following UFC 249's interim Lightweight Championship fight that saw Justin Gaethje defeat Tony Ferguson. In a Twitter rant on Monday, McGregor talked about Gaethje, Ferguson, Dustin Poirier and Khabib Nurmagomedov, while predicting how the division would go.

Watching the other night I was against going in without them. But it will be my fucking pleasure to display the power I possess with zero background noise for them.
Its me and Justin next as khabib is the biggest bottle fighter in the game.
I love Tony. We represented him amazingly at Paradigm sports and were betrayed for a promise of a baseball contract. But frame and preparation here was just embarrassing. His methods and conversation are humorous/enjoyable but he was never the level perceived. Although tough.— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) May 11, 2020
It is Dustin/Tony next when Tony heals.— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) May 11, 2020
If he does. Dustin will beat him also if changes are not made. Which they won’t. Dustin, although game, and in the mix, will be fed to the floor again. Couple wins here/there then folded in half. Rinse and repeat - Dustin career.
Justin, there is no danger in a man that hugs legs, we all know. Try and dance around what the real threat is here all you want.— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) May 11, 2020
I am going to fucking butcher you.
Your teeth. I’m going to put them on a fucking necklace.
Speak on my skills as a father?
You are fucking dead.
Don’t ever say you represent the great nation of the United States of America ever again. No true American would speak so highly of, or allow, a convicted member of a Jihadi terror cell represent them.— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) May 11, 2020
You are a fucking blind fool, and I am going to finish the job.
Khabib you absolute embarrassment. Scurrying, hiding rat as usual. As I have said many times. As has been seen many times. Through the pane of glass it was confirmed what was always known.— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) May 11, 2020
“No comment” lol.
An embarrassment to real fighting.
After this division demolition job.— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) May 11, 2020
It is 170lbs.
McGregor last competed in January, taking on Donald Cerrone at 170 pounds.
As of now, McGregor has no fight scheduled, but Dana White has mentioned he wants to fight on Fight Island when the property is complete.
