‘You and I are fighting one day friend and I’m going to end your life there full of it. Sauce. Money. Can. I already won all the belts and the money in this game. I just want to kill one of your rats, now that’s the only thing left for me to do. And watch me do it. Only on PPV, ” McGregor wrote on Twitter.
McGregor also poked fun at Ferguson’s state of mind, labeling it a ‘mental basket case’ amid allegations that El Cucuy left his wife in fear after a manic episode.
UFC fans responded negatively to the Irishman’s latest outburst, criticizing the former fan favorite for his tweets directed at Ferguson. McGregor responded by saying that he only cares about money.
“I don’t give a damn, I just want your money,” McGregor wrote. ‘Sauce. Money. Can. If the numbers go down, I’ll change. Until then hahahahahaahajajah ‘.
The Irishman is currently offside after breaking his leg at UFC 264 in early summer.
McGregor tweeted that he wants to ‘kill’ El Cucy. He has since removed the dark post.
McGregor has grown strong while caring for his leg injury since UFC 264, though Ferguson has alleged that the Irishman has taken performance-enhancing drugs, an accusation McGregor strongly denies.
‘Taking growth hormone will do that to someone’s frame. You are mentally weak and your leg is compromised. Your fragile, fragile and brittle. That GH Gon ‘Make U Break Kid. Keep Pumpin ‘Ya Chest Ya Cheat. It is not the first time that God has punished you. Do you like to annoy people and DJs? WTF P *** y ‘, Ferguson tweeted.
Following his latest loss to Poirier, McGregor is some distance from claiming his lightweight title and has been left with few options when he’s back in top form.
A fight against Ferguson would make sense, with 37 years winless in his last three fights.
Ferguson has lost his last three fights and needs a win to put his lightweight on the track.
