Justin Gaethje Blasts Conor McGregor For Calling For Rematch With Nurmagomedov
By: Nathan Zur Sep 9, 2019
Nurmagomedov continued to make his case as the best MMA
lightweight of all time with another dominant display inside the
Octagon, this time over Dustin
Poirier on Saturday at UFC 242 in Abu Dhabi. After the win,
many questioned who, if anyone, can stop “The Eagle.”
While the logical next fight would see former interim champ
Ferguson given his chance after the first four attempts to book
him against Nurmagomedov failed for a host of reasons, Ultimate Fighting Championship President Dana
White then threw a wrench in the works by suggesting that if “El
Cucuy” wasn’t ready for the title fight, he would consider a
rematch with former lightweight champion Conor
McGregor who lost to the champion via fourth-round rear naked
choke last October at UFC 229.
McGregor had stirred the pot earlier by tweeting “Book my rematch
for Moscow” after Poirier was beaten.
The tweet didn’t sit too well with former World Series of Fighting lightweight champion
and the current No. 5-ranked UFC lightweight Justin
Gaethje, who took issue with McGregor trying to cut in
Gaethje, who has been highly critical of the Irishman in recent
times, blasted McGregor for asking for the rematch before taking
some personal shots at him.
you’re a tool. You have lost everything
already. You are a shit human, father, and husband. Fuck you.
