Petr Yan Responds To Conor McGregor: ‘I Don’t Care About The Ruleset, I Bet You Won’t Show Up’


Another Conor McGregor Twitter war has commenced, this time with the usually subdued Petr Yan.

Former UFC Lightweight and Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor took to Twitter over the weekend to respond to a fan's list of the best pure boxers in the UFC.

The list boasted current interim UFC Bantamweight Champion Petr Yan as the top boxer in the promotion, followed by former Featherweight Champion Max Holloway, the aforementioned McGregor then Jose Aldo and Nate Diaz to round out the top five.

McGregor would respond to the list, saying he's outboxed three of the four fighters on the list, pointing out that Yan is the lone fighter that he's yet to face.

Yan would then respond to 'The Notorious One', saying it doesn't matter about the weight or ruleset, he's down for the challenge.

McGregor would then oblige, saying he's more than willing to set up a sparring session at the Crumlin Boxing Club in McGregor's home country of Ireland.

UFC Bantamweight contender 'Suga' Sean O'Malley would then chime-in, telling McGregor to let him worry about 'these little dudes.'

Yan recently claimed the interim Bantamweight Championship at UFC 267, two weeks ago, where he defeated Cory Sandhagen via unanimous decision while McGregor is recovering from leg surgery after suffering multiple injuries in his loss to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264, earlier this year.

O'Malley is set to face Raulian Paiva at UFC 269, next month.
