Conor McGregor Receives Brutal UFC Ultimatum From Justin Gaethje In Explosive Outburst
Justin Gaethje has told Conor McGregor "he needs to go away or fight" in an explosive rant.
Gaethje wants to welcome McGregor back to the UFC. He's called him out, but the Irishman continues to ignore his messages on social media despite being active on Twitter.

McGregor has sent abusive messages to his UFC rivals including Khabib Nurmagomedov and Dustin Poirier. But he's not yet replied to Gaethje, who's growing frustrated with the former UFC double champion.
"He keeps tweeting he's going to fight," the UFC lightweight contender said.
"On planet Earth, there are two people who could possibly fight him: Me or Dustin Poirier. He's only fought two times in the lightweight division in his whole career, he's fought two times, he lost one and won one.
"He's ranked No. 3 for some odd reason. He needs to either go away or fight. And it's either me or Dustin."
Asked if he's prepared to face McGregor, Gaethje replied: "Absolutely. I swear to God I thought he was retired. I have no idea.
"He'll reply to Dustin on social media. He will not reply to me. I wrote a him message like f**king seven months ago just trying to be friendly.
"I've tried every route. I'm trying reverse psychology, I'm trying to be his friend. I'm trying every f**king route there is to draw this man out and I can't draw this man out. And he's calling out Frankie Edgar.
"It's a slap in the face to me, to all the lightweights and to the standards we f**king do here."
McGregor hasn't fought since his devastating submission defeat to Khabib Nurmagomedov last October, but he's plotting his comeback fight.
Will he return against Gaethje? Watch this space.
