Conor McGregor Reading His Mean Tweets Is Still Pure Comedy Gold
Conor McGregor was savage when he responded to Twitter abuse that he received in a 2015 video with BT Sport.
The Irish MMA superstar, 31, responded to his harshest 'critics' ahead of his UFC 189 bout with Chad Mendes.
The trash-talking McGregor was in his element and had some incredible lines, including "I'll wipe my tears with my money" and "Who's Katie Hopkins?"
With so much abuse thrown in his direction, McGregor took it on the chin like a champion and equally fired back with relentless comments at his trolls.
The 'Notorious' has been out of the octagon since his sensational defeat to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 in 2018.
But McGregor dropped a hint last week that he could make his return to UFC before the end of 2019, though UFC president Dana White admitted that his stunning return could happen in 2020.
McGregor has been keen for a rematch with Khabib and called him out after the 31-year-old UFC lightweight champ's victory over Dustin Poirier at UFC 242.
The undefeated 'Eagle' has continued to intensify his rivalry with the Irishman and claimed their feud "did not finish" after their initial fight.
He explained: "Just to smash people is not enough. I talk about just smash only him? It's not enough. We have to smash all his team.
"This is what I think before the fight. This is what I say to my team, 'Hey, tonight, we're going to war; this is not about a fight.'
"It will never be finished, ever.
"Even if we see [each other] somewhere, we're going to fight, 100 per cent.
"It doesn't matter if someone goes to jail or something like this.
"I'm not scared about this -- they go to hospital and we go to police. That's it."
McGregor's coach, John Kavanagh, has recently suggested that his fighter should eye up a return bout with Frankie Edgar.
