Conor McGregor responds to Ric Flair and rips into “failed Mr. Olympia” John Cena and WWE “dweebs”

Conor McGregor is at it again and he’s doubling down on his recent comments on WWE talent. As previously noted, this is not an angle and McGregor is not secretly working an angle with WWE. With that said, I wouldn’t be shocked if both sides ended up talking at some point to see if something can get worked out for WrestleMania.

On Friday he took aim at WWE’s biggest star John Cena as he addressed the media in preparation for his upcoming fight with Nate Diaz at UFC 202. McGregor said, “He’s 40 years of age. He’s walking around in a luminous orange t-shirt and a headband talking about nobody can see him. We can see him right there. He’s a big fat, 40-year-old failed Mr. Olympia mother f***er.”

Earlier this week, McGregor got several current and former WWE stars upset on twitter with his comments about the current WWE generation of talent being “messed up p***ies.” Ric Flair ripped on McGregor for stealing the “Nature Boy” gimmick from him and said that a guy like Dolph Ziggler (a former amateur wrestler) could take McGregor down. McGregor responded to Flair’s comments on Friday by saying, “I don’t know what to say to Ric Flair. This ain’t no gimmick. This is the real sh*t. I’ve gotta get in and fight a man for real. With no script, with no nothing. He was talking about bringing some other wrestler guys out to challenge me. Come bring it, then. This is the real shit over here. Come over, we can fight no problem. A few of them are talking about the street and all. If they want to do that, come at me and see what happens.”

McGregor offered praise to Vince McMahon, Triple H and some of the Hall Of Famers from the business. He said, “[Vince McMahon] is a f****ing legend. They wrote Vinny off a few years ago when he dropped from the billions and then he rose back up and now he’s back in the billionaire club. What he’s been able to do with that bunch of dweebs over there at the moment has been phenomenal and I respect him for that. Then of course the OG’s of the game… The Rock, Stone Cold, they’re cool mother f****ers. Even Ric Flair is a cool mother f****er.”

McGregor went further and doubled down on his comments about the roster. He said, “That new age of those guys are absolute dweebs. They just seem messed up in the head. I don’t know what it is. When I listen to them talk, when I listen to them carry themselves, they just don’t seem right in the head. That might have been a bit rudeness for me to say, but again, It ain’t trash talk, it’s truth talk.”

McGregor is set to fight Nate Diaz at UFC 202 on August 20th and my hunch is that a bunch of people in WWE will be rooting for Diaz. That fight takes place on the same night as NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn II and one night before SummerSlam.

You can listen to McGregor’s comments below. He talks about WWE talent around the 17:50 mark.
