Conor McGregor 'Accepts' UFC Fight After Responding To Call Out

Conor McGregor 'Accepts' UFC Fight After Responding To Call Out

Conor McGregor says he "accepts" a fight with budding UFC superstar Khamzat Chimaev after responding to his call out on social media.

Chimaev, 26, has burst onto the MMA scene with two big wins in 10 days on 'Fight Island' earlier this month.

And the undefeated welterweight called for a showdown against either Nate Diaz, Jorge Masvidal or McGregor following his performances in Abu Dhabi.

On Twitter, he wrote: "I'm getting bored, please @danawhite give me @NateDiaz209 @GamebredFighter @TheNotoriousMMA same night. I can smash all these guys... I'm not cocky guy I'm just confident. I understand if they don't want to fight me."

Moments later, the Irishman responded with his own message on Twitter. He wrote: "I accept."

Chimaev's dominant victories over John Phillips and Rhys McKee has seen him become the talk of the UFC with White hyping up a bout against welterweight king Kamaru Usman.

The Swedish fighter (8-0) also revealed that he travelled to Ireland to find McGregor and "beat him up" for comments made about Khabib Nurmagomedov.

However, he was stopped and detained by police at the airport before being shipped back to Sweden.
