If Conor McGregor wanted the WWE's attention, he's certainly got it. After going on a rant about "slapping the heads off their entire roster," McGregor has gotten responses from just about every WWE superstar telling him to come fight in the squared-circle.
I didn't mean no disrespect to the @wwe fans. What I meant to say was that I'd slap the head off your entire roster. And twice on Sunday's.— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) August 7, 2016
Now, one of the biggest who also dabbled in UFC is among those challenging McGregor to come to WWE. Brock Lesnar, appearing on Sam Roberts show ahead of SummerSlam on Sunday, took a blowtorch to McGregor's comments.
"I take [expletives] bigger than that kid," Lesnar said. "Come on guys. I know you guys all play [expletive] video games and you live in this [expletive] false sense of reality and [expletive]. I'm 200 and [expletive] 90 pounds, alright, this guy is 145 pounds and that's if he's lucky and gets up and [expletive] eats his Wheaties."
Oh, he wasn't done yet.
"If Conor McGregor wants to say some [expletive] to me and get his name out there more than he already has, by dropping my name, I got about 10 [expletive] words for him. Come here face-to-face Conor and say it to my face. Otherwise leave me and the [expletive] WWE out of it because I came to your arena and kicked ass. Now if you want and you're so [expletive] tough, come to our arena and try to kick some ass."
Now, McGregor made sure in his original comments to mention that Lesnar came to his arena and at least competed, but also took a shot at his alleged steroid use.
"I have thought about it. For the most part, I think these guys are [expletives], to be honest. They're messed up [expletives], if you ask me," McGregor said, via MMAJunkie.com. "Fair play to Brock [Lesnar]; he got in and fought, but at the end of the day, he was juiced up to the [expletive] eyeballs. How can I respect that? The other guy [CM Punk] hasn't fought yet, so I don't know about him yet."
To be honest, a McGregor-Lesnar showdown would be quite entertaining in the same way that Floyd Mayweather against the Big Show was a few years back. Just think of the size difference between these two.
Wherever this ends up, it is going to be entertaining.
