After Conor McGregor (pictured) was upset by Nate Diaz on Saturday at UFC 196, countless McGregor haters came out firing. Former UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo was leading the charge.
UFC lightweight champ Rafael Dos Anjos, who was originally slated to put his title on the line against McGregor until a broken foot forced him to withdraw from UFC 196, also took to Twitter to drop his two cents. While dos Anjos didn’t go so far as calling McGregor a “pu**Y” like Aldo, he did remind McGregor that he isn’t God.
McGregor, still stunned from the submission loss at the UFC 196 post-fight press conference, simply called Aldo a “loser” for basking in another man’s victory when he was put to sleep in merely 13 seconds when he faced McGregor in December.
They say time heals all wounds, and apparently McGregor’s wounds are already good to go 24 hours after suffering the biggest loss of his career.
The “Notorious” one took to Facebook Sunday night and responded to his detractors, including Aldo and dos Anjos, like only Conor McGregor can.
It looks like McGregor is already back in fight week form. That certainly didn’t take long.
Here is McGregor’s entire post from his verified Facebook page:
I stormed in and put it all on the line. I took a shot and missed.
I will never apologize for taking a shot.
I’ll take this loss like a man. I will not shy away from it. I will not change who I am. If another champion goes up 2 weights let me know.
If your tired of me talking money, take a nap.
I’ll still be here when you wake up with the highest PPV and the gate. Still talking multi 7’s.
Thank you to the true support and fuck the hate that came out of the woodwork. I love it all. Its still steak for breakfast.
I’ve been here many times in my life in some form or another. I’ll eat it all and come back stronger.
Aldo you are a pussy. Dos anjos you are a pussy.
When the history books are written, I showed up. You showed up on Twitter.
To the fans! Never ever shy away from challenges. Never run from adversity. Face yourself head on.
Nate I will see you again.
