UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor is at it again! Following a colorful week that saw the Irishman draw the ire of WWE stars, McGregor has taken another swipe at WWE face John Cena.
At the UFC press day event held Friday, “The Notorious” continued his verbal attacks with the 40-year-old Cenation leader the main target.
“What’s the main guy? John Cena, He’s 40, he’s 40 years of age. He’s walking around in a luminous orange t-shirt and a headband talking about how nobody can see him, we can see him right there. He’s a big fat, 40-year-old failed Mr. Olympia.” McGregor said via the Rolling Stone.
Will John Cena respond?
Like his previous attacks, McGregor’s antics will likely draw more harsh responses from WWE personalities. With most believing that his tirades are nothing more than to hype his match against Nate Diaz at UFC 202, the WWE has become his springboard for attention.
WWE stars like Roman Reigns, Sasha Banks and Ric Flair have come forward to take a shot at the Irishman, not to mention former WWE star Kurt Angle who challenged McGregor to “5 bumps” within him in the ring.
Curiously, Cena was not among the ones who stood up initially though the scenario is now different. With his name mentioned, most are awaiting if the former WWE champion will come out in the open and respond to the mixed martial arts fighter’s qualms.
On his end, McGregor has never been at a loss for words. He has had a storied past with other UFC stars and even retired boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr.
In a different way, some view his antics as a way to build up possible hype of a possible WWE stint. It wasn’t long ago that he was rumored to be making an appearance though the battleground he has set may be dangerous.
Then again, McGregor has thrived on such in the UFC. Could he survive the same in the WWE?
