UFC News: Conor McGregor promises to ‘butcher’ Justin Gaethje, calls out Khabib

UFC 249 is in the books and it has turned the landscape of the UFC Lightweight division upside down.

If you missed it, in the main event of the pay-per-view, Justin Gaethje got a stoppage win over Tony Ferguson to win the Interim UFC Lightweight title. This has made Gaethje a prime candidate to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov next but a certain Conor McGregor has now entered the picture.

McGregor, who made his MMA return recently with a win over Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone, now wants a piece of Justin Gaethje and then take out Khabib Nurmagomedov.

The Irishman unleashed his fury in a series of tweets last day where he called out his major competitors. The first shot was fired at Justin Gaethje and McGregor noted that he would butcher Gaethje if they ever fought.

“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*cking butcher you. Your teeth. I’m going to put them on a f*cking necklace. Speak on my skills as a father? You are f*cking dead,” he tweeted.

He also threw some shade at Gaethje’s manager Ali Abdelaziz in the tweet that followed.

“Don’t ever say you represent the great nation of the United States of America ever again. No true American would speak so highly of, or allow, a convicted member of a Jihadi terror cell represent them. Never forget! You are a f*cking blind fool, and I am going to finish the job. It’s me and Justin next as Khabib is the biggest bottle fighter in the game. Guarantee it,” he continued.

McGregor then changed his attention to Khabib Nurmagomedov and said that the Russian was an embarrassment.

“Khabib you absolute embarrassment. Scurrying, hiding rat as usual. As I have said many times. As has been seen many times. Through the pane of glass it was confirmed what was always known.“No comment” lol. An embarrassment to real fighting,” Conor Tweeted.

Tony Ferguson and Dustin Poirier didn’t escape from the firing as well.

“I love Tony. We represented him amazingly at Paradigm sports and were betrayed for a promise of a baseball contract. But frame and preparation here was just embarrassing. His methods and conversation are humorous/enjoyable but he was never the level perceived. Although tough. It is Dustin [Poirier]/Tony next when Tony heals. If he does. Dustin will beat him also if changes are not made. Which they won’t. Dustin, although game, and in the mix, will be fed to the floor again. Couple wins here/there then folded in half. Rinse and repeat - Dustin career,” he added.

The former Featherweight and Lightweight champion concluded his rant by saying that he will take over the Welterweight division once he cleans out all these names in the Lightweight division.
