MMA Junkie reports that Conor McGregor (14-2 MMA, 2-0 UFC) has insulted several fighters in the featherweight division on his Twitter account. He just defeated Max Holloway (7-3 MMA, 3-3 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 26 in Boston. He suffered a knee injury but continued to fight and received a win by unanimous decision. He said he is having an MRI scan tomorrow and doesn't think he'll be out longer than three or four weeks.
The fighters he is referring to are: Chad Mendes (too small), Ricardo Lamas (nobody cares), Cub Swanson (too old), Chan Sung Jung (he's open to fighting him), Frankie Edgar (should be at bantamweight), Dennis Silver (too old), Dustin Poirier (Peahead), Clay Guida (boring), Nik Lentz (boring) and Erik Koch (?).
These are some of the top ranked fighters in the division. USA Today has them ranked respectively at No. 3, No. 4, No. 7, No. 6, No. 14, No. 15, an honorable mention, No. 13 and No. 12.
McGregor's camp and Diego Brandao (18-8 MMA, 4-1 UFC, the winner of The Ultimate Fighter 14), an honorable mention in the rankings, have said they wanted to fight each other.
