As noted, during the official media conference call to promote the big Conor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz rematch at UFC 202 (watch here), “The Notorious” one took a couple of shots at WWE and some of their talent.
When asked about Brock Lesnar popping hot on two drug tests for his UFC 200 fight against Mark Hunt, McGregor said he would give credit to Lesnar for stepping into the Octagon and fighting, but noted that Lesnar was “juiced up to his eyeballs” for the fight.
“For the most part those WWE guys are p*ssies,” said McGregor of the talent working in WWE. “They’re messed up p*ssies, if you ask me.”
While McGregor wouldn’t commit to an opinion on former WWE Superstar CM Punk, who makes his official Octagon debut at UFC 203 against Mickey Gall in September, he did mention liking The McMahon’s, Triple H and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson before sharing his belief that “the rest of [the WWE guys] are f*cking p*ssies.”
Soon after hearing the comments, many WWE Superstars decided to fire back at McGregor on social media. Below are some reaction tweets from such WWE Superstars as Roman Reigns and Sasha Banks, as well as former WWE Superstar Kurt Angle.
