It appears UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor (pictured) has made himself a few new enemies. Actually, most of the WWE roster after his brash comments during Friday’s UFC 202 conference call.

“For the most part, those WWE guys are (expletive),” McGregor stated. “To be honest, they’re messed up [expletive] if you ask me. Fair play to Brock, he got in a fight but at the end of the day he’s juiced up to the [expletive] eyeballs so how can I respect that?

“There’s some Dons in that wrestling game. The McMahons, they’re Dons. Triple H is a Don. The Rock is a Don. But the rest of them are [expletive].”

Never one to back down, McGregor continued his assault on the WWE roster after catching flak for his remarks.

As expected, that didn’t go over too well with several past and present WWE superstars who returned fire, including Roman Reigns, Kurt Angle and Ric Flair.

Flair fired back the hardest since be claims McGregor’s schtick is torn directly out of “The Nature Boy’s” playbook.

Needless to say, most, if not all, of the WWE roster will be Team Diaz at UFC 202. With so much at stake for McGregor in their rematch, one would think his focus should be squarely on the man who submitted him just five months ago on only 11 days’ notice.

Then again, Mac runs things. Just ask him.
