Conor McGregor Says He Doesn't Know Who 'Clown' MJF Is, MJF Calls Him A 'Roided Up Leprechaun'

Conor McGregor has logged on.

On November 22, MJF and Paddy Pimblett got into a social media exchange that included MJF calling Paddy, "A dollar store Conor McGregor." MJF went on to tease showing up to UFC 282 on December 10, which is when Paddy will next enter the Octagon.

McGregor caught wind of the news and he is backing Paddy, claiming he doesn't know who MJF is.

MJF issued the following response:

When speaking about Pimblett to ESPN, MJF said, "Pro wrestling is a dangerous, dangerous sport, and there is no one more dangerous than MJF. I can assure you when we come to London in 2023, if Paddy shows his face, he's going to find out that a Scouser is no match for a Long Islander. Because I'm better than him and he knows it. There's a target on my back at all times. Like I said, if 'Paddy the Baddy' thinks he can aim at that target and hit it, I am more than game. More than game to knock that guy out."

Pimblett is scheduled to fight Jared Gordon at UFC 282.

Fightful will have live coverage of AEW Dynamite, which is MJF's first show as AEW Champion, beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
