It would appear that Brock Lesnar is no fan of Conor McGregor…
When Conor McGregor fired shots at the entire World Wrestling Entertainment roster recently, his intentions were obvious. ‘The Notorious’ was using his powerful social media following and already huge name to get mixed up in more publicity. As they say, any publicity is good publicity, and for McGregor it appears to be all good. His threats to the WWE stars were met with a myriad of angry responses, as expected.
Pro wrestling legends Chris Jericho, Ric Flair, John Cena and Kurt Angle were included in the long list of offended WWE employees. The line of people wanted a piece of McGregor continued to grow, much to the delight of the polarizing Irish star. All this and we haven’t even addressed the madness of this UFC 202 fight week.
While we are on the subject of pro wrestlers against fighters, one particular name has cropped up with a history in both fields. WWE superstar and former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar was asked about McGregor’s recent comments, and his response was explicit and direct.
Here’s the video:
“I take shits bigger than that kid. I know you guys all play fucking video games and you live in this false reality and shit. Listen, I’m 290 fucking pounds, this guy is 145 pounds. If he’s lucky and he’s getting up and eating his Weeties in the morning. He wants to challenge. If Conor McGregor wants to say some shit to me, come here Conor, face-to-face, and say some fucking shit.”
Wow, not your average pro wrestler interview by a long stretch.
Lesnar’s future in the UFC is pretty much over since he failed two UFC 200 drug tests. Perhaps he might want to concern himself more with the man who really wants to get in his face, Mark Hunt. As far as Conor McGregor in the WWE is concerned, at this point don’t count out any possibility. Money talks and all that.
