The Damning Tweet From Justin Gaethje That Provoked Conor McGregor To Threaten Him On Twitter

The Damning Tweet From Justin Gaethje That Provoked Conor McGregor To Threaten Him On Twitter

Justin Gaethje aimed a ruthless dig at Conor McGregor's skills as a father and husband which prompted the Irishman's fierce Twitter tirade.

McGregor waited until Monday to react to UFC 249 which saw Gaethje beat Tony Ferguson to claim the interim-UFC lightweight title.

'The Notorious' pulled no punches during a scathing social media rant as he took a swipe at all of his UFC rivals including the newly minted interim-lightweight champion.

He blasted 'The Highlight' who slammed him after the Dublin man called for a showdown against Khabib Nurmagomedov back in September.

"You're a tool. You have lost everything already. You are a shit human, father, and husband. F**k you," Gaethje wrote in response to McGregor asking for a rematch in Moscow.

McGregor took offence to Gaethje's father claim as he threatened to "f**king butcher" him.

"Justin, there is no danger in a man that hugs legs, we all know. Try and dance around what the real threat is here all you want. I am going to f**king butcher you. Your teeth. I'm going to put them on a f**king necklace. Speak on my skills as a father? You are f**king dead," McGregor angrily wrote on Twitter.

Gaethje, meanwhile, became a huge player in the 155lbs division after stopping Ferguson in the main-event of UFC 249 last weekend.

And he's ready to face Nurmagomedov, but also expressed a desire to face the former double UFC champion in Ireland.

"Khabib is the best in the world. I've been working since I was four for challenges like this," he said.

"And I'm happy to represent the United States of America versus Dagestan or Russia's best.

"He's 28-0 and there's no other challenge I want right now. I want to fight him.

"Then I'll go to Ireland and do what I got to do."
