Conor Mcgregor indulges in war of words with Michael Bisping on twitter

With his stature in the octagon losing steam, former UFC champion Conor McGregor appears desperate to find other ways to live up to his 'Notorious' moniker. Since losing by TKO to Dustin Poirier for the second time in a row, the Irishman has presented a more volatile and unhinged version of himself online.

Part of that act has included threatening the lives of his opponents. McGregor appeared to threaten Poirier and his family with something that would happen "in their sleep" immediately after his second defeat to Poirier back at UFC 264.

With McGregor's return to the Octagon still a long way off as he's opted for a bit part in a movie instead he's taken to Twitter once more in search of attention. His most recent target is fellow former champion Michael Bisping, with whom he has previously clashed.

This latest incident seemed to have started with a somewhat innocuous tweet from McGregor, in which he wrote, “All these little twerps wanna be actors now. Little twerps, There’s Only One Mac Daddy. Bad to the bone but with a good heart. Action with Jake Gyl or Rom com with Sarah Jessica. Bisping, member that show you were in. Ye me neither.

Bisping responded to the comment. “I was a just befuddled,” he said on his Believe You Me podcast. “I wasn’t annoyed or anything, just scratching my head going, ‘Where’s that coming from out of the blue? He’s all excited, he’s had his first beer and he’s doing a big show with Jake Gyllenhaal, god bless him. Good for fucking you. Well done. Why have you gotta throw shade my way? I don’t get it.

It seems as though that response upset McGregor. He took to twitter soon after to say. “Bisping you’ll do fuck all you little sprinter. I’ll cave your head in.”

That was followed by “Shit fighter, shit actor. Sirius XM head.”

Then McGregor posted a voice note in which he said:

“Do you want to go to war man, yeah? Do you want to go to f**king war? We’ll go to war with you, yeah. Security, you little sausage of a thing. I’ll have security set you up. Where do you stay when you’re in Vegas again, pal? Little Apex fucking pad.”

“Keep my name out of your f**king mouth in any type of threatening behavior, or I’ll walk through your front door. Yup, Laguna, you little dope. Yup the Mancs, yeah! Go back where you belong you little clown, you little sprinter.”

McGregor has been a boisterous presence in MMA since joining the UFC in 2013. The UFC encouraged and rewarded this behavior by propelling him to stardom within the organization, culminating in his UFC featherweight title victory over Jose Aldo in 2015.

McGregor's stardom grew beyond the confines of the cage following that fight, thanks to his two-fight series with Nate Diaz and subsequent UFC lightweight title win over Eddie Alvarez.

McGregor's most recent victory inside the cage or ring came in 2020, when he defeated Donald Cerrone via TKO. He then suffered two defeats to Poirier.
