Conor McGregor Hits Back At Jorge Masvidal For Calling Him A 'F*****g Midget'
Conor McGregor has intensified his rivalry with Jorge Masvidal by taking a swipe at him after he was called a "f*****g midget."
BMF champ Masvidal, 34, secured a controversial third-round TKO victory (via doctor stoppage) over Nate Diaz at UFC 244 in New York.
And 'Gamebred' wasted no time after the fight in targeting McGregor, who is eyeing up a UFC return in early 2020, by vowing to "f**k him up."
UFC superstar McGregor, 31, has now fired off a shot at Masvidal on Twitter.
He tweeted: "Hey @BurgerKing, could I get a 3 piece with soda and a side of chicken box please? Loads of salt and vinegar. Thanks."
Hey @BurgerKing, could I get a 3 piece with soda and a side chicken box please? Loads of salt and vinegar. Thanks- Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) November 3, 2019
The Irish MMA fighter's 'three-piece with soda' reference was about Masvidal's backstage fight with Leon Edwards at UFC Fight Night in London.
Masvidal defended his involvement in the altercation back in March and accused Edwards of interfering in an interview, saying "this hooligan comes by saying some stuff like, 'July, get you're a*s kicked in July, July!'"
He continued: "I go 'Maybe, bro, whatever, because maybe I wanna kick you're a*s in April. Maybe I don't wanna wait until July. Maybe I don't want to fight you in a prize ring because you're not worth the training camp, I'll just fight you here because you're a scrub.' You know?
"So I tell him to just say it to my face like a man. You're saying it and walking away?
"We're both men, and as I'm walking to him I got my hands behind my back to signal to him that I'm not looking for problems.
"But he put his hands up like this and he walks towards me.
"Well... where I'm from if you do that, you're going to punch me in the face and that's not going to happen.
"You are what you are, you're just a loser in life, man.
"You're not going to get a hit off on me.
"So I had to give him the three-piece with the soda and then just glide out of there, you know?
"And then some of his friends tried to sucker punch me, those guys did a big mistake."
McGregor, who also reacted to the cageside doctor stopping the Masvidal and Diaz clash, has said that he is eyeing up a UFC return on 18th January in Las Vegas.
The 'Notorious' hasn't fought in a UFC octagon since his defeat to fierce rival Khabib Nurmagomedov in 2018.
