Failed Mr. Olympia motherf**er: When Conor McGregor took a shot at John Cena

Conor McGregor is apparently not a fan of WWE superstar John Cena. The former UFC Double champion is known for his outrageous comments and a few years back, he had given his take on John Cena.

During one of his interviews, The Irishman went hard on Cena and noted that he is a ‘failed Mr Olympia’ referring to his bodybuilding days of Cena. Before his entry into professional wrestling, Cena had also tried his hands at Bodybuilding. McGregor was referring to this in his quote.

"What's the main guy? John Cena. He's 40. He's 40 years of age. They are walking around in a luminous orange T-Shirt and a headband talking about nobody can see them. We can see him right there, he's a big fat 40-year-old failed Mr Olympia motherf***er. They are dweebs those guys.” McGregor said.

Though he is not a big fan of John Cena, McGregor showed respect towards Ric Flair and The McMahons. He said that Ric Flair is a legend and added that the new age guys are ‘dweebs’.

"You know, Ric Flair is a legend. As far as talking about gimmicks, this is the real thing over here. I think these WWE guys think this is, they are not right in the head some of them. I mean the new age are dweebs. Let's be honest here, they're absolute dweebs. But the old school guys are legends, Ric Flair was a legend. McMahons of course, dons,” he added.

Conor McGregor has crossed paths with the professional wrestling world on multiple occasions and sometime back, WWE superstar Roman Reigns had clapped back at McGregor as well. In one of his tweets, reigns noted that McGregor is only the size of his legs.
