UFC 2016: McGregor takes shots at heavyweight champion Werdum

UFC has found quite the man in Conor McGregor. The UFC featherweight champion is known for his flamboyant style. But no one can escape from his shots, not even UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum.

As UFC President Dana White said, McGregor does what he says. And perhaps this is the reason why White has allowed him to move to lightweight division without relinquishing his featherweight belt.

The Irishman received the Fighter of the Year Award at the 2016 World MMA Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada. McGregor couldn’t be there to receive the award. However, he did send his message via a pre-recorded video.

But like his past interviews, McGregor never fails to drop a bomb and take shots at people.

McGregor went on and dropped the big bombshell against Fabricio Werdum.

MMA Fighting reports that McGregor starts off by apologizing for not being there to collect his award.

He then said, “There’s another man that must be slain, another champion that must be dethroned. There’s more numbers that need to be broken. I need to feed all you bums. I need to feed every single one of yous in the game, so I’ve got to keep working, because yous bums don’t work.”

He then took out the big guns and began attacking Werdum who recently pulled out of a match against Stipe Miocic. Their UFC 196 fight was scheduled to take place on February 6.

However, after Werdum’s withdrawal the fight card was renamed to UFC Fight Night 82 and the original co-main event between Johny Hendricks and Stephen Thompson took over headlining duties.

“You got the heavyweight champion, who’s a pu–y, pulling out with a sore toe. How is the heavyweight champion going to pull out with a sore toe? What kind of champion is that?” McGregor said referring to Werdum.

“The game is on its knees, so I apologize I can’t be there at the awards, but I am out here putting it in, working, putting in the true work, the work it takes to keep every one of yous fed.”

“So thank you, and thank me,” he added.
