Conor McGregor slams Justin Gaethje for rejecting Jorge Masvidal BMF clash: ‘He fights at 155, get in the sauna’

Conor McGregor claims Justin Gaethje should fight Jorge Masvidal get in the sauna

Former two-weight UFC champion, Conor McGregor has hit out at former interim lightweight champion, Justin Gaethje for his refusal to entertain a symbolic BMF title unifier with inaugural holder, Jorge Masvidal, pointing to the Miami native’s prior fighting history at 155lbs.

McGregor, a former undisputed featherweight and lightweight champion under the banner of the UFC, has been sidelined from the Octagon since he headlined UFC 264 back in 2021, suffering a doctor’s stoppage TKO loss against Dustin Poirier after he fractured his left tibia and fibula.

As for Gaethje, the former interim lightweight champion headlined UFC 291 against common-foe, Poirier in the pair’s long-awaited rematch.

Striking symbolic BMF spoils back in July in Salt Lake City, Utah, Gaethje avenged a knockout loss of his own to Poirier with a thunderous second round high-kick KO in The Beehive State’.

And in the immediate aftermath of the rematch, Gaethje was targeted for a BMF title unifier by inaugural gold holder, Masvidal, claiming he would entertain ending his retirement from the sport to fight the Arizona native in a comeback.

Rejecting that notion of a unifier against Masvidal next, Gaethje cited the Floridian’s recent history competing at the welterweight limit, for the reason a bout would likely fail to come to fruition.

“The most un-BFM shout ever,” Conor McGregor posted about Justin Gaethje on his official X account. “He fights at 155 (pounds). Lol. B*tch. Get into the sauna, b*tch.”

Himself previously targeting an immediate return to the Octagon against Gaethje himself, a clash with McGregor has been on the mind of the Arizona striker, admittedly, who revealed that he had often dreamt about the possibility of fighting McGregor – and subsequently ending the Dubliner’s illustrious career.
