UFC superstar Conor McGregor and former UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum trashed each other via social media on Friday. Werdum ripped into McGregor over the Irishman taking aim at Bellator about that promoter’s lack of testing for performance-enhancing drugs. Werdum hasn’t yet signed with Bellator, but most observers expect him to do so in order to set up a rematch with Fedor Emelianenko.

But Werdum seemed to take McGregor’s social media post about the drug testing issue as a veiled shot at Bellator women’s featherweight champion Cris Cyborg, so Werdum lit into McGregor over the matter via Twitter.

McGregor wasn’t having that. After reading Werdum’s insults, McGregor posted, “…Man, f*** you, what a business this is.”

McGregor has been very active on social media as of late. He regularly posts his thoughts about how his home country of Ireland is handling the COVID-19 pandemic, chimes in on various MMA issues and pretty much continuously trolls UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.


Werdum: ‘Losers Always Try To Find Excuses’

Werdum had posted, “Losers always will try to find excuses. Champions work very hard and don’t distracted by ants. [Cris Cybrog] Is a living legend McGregor is filha-da-puta HEY’.

McGregor posted, “Huh? I did not mention Cris whatsoever. Nothing to do with Cris at all. It is a request to the promotion, as a top tier one, to up its PED testing program. As currently there is zero in place. This is a dangerous business and to take a lax stance here, at this level, is wrong.”

Then, McGregor posted, “Actually wait! Aren’t you currently banned for steroids right now? And got your sentenced reduced for ratting other people? And also just recently signed to this promotion I speak of? Woah. Man, f*** you. My lord, what a business this is.”


Werdum Continues Taking Social Media Stabs at McGregor

But Werdum wasn’t done. The 43-year-old took another couple of stabs at McGregor via social media about some of the Irishman’s known and presumed issues.

Werdum posted, “An alcoholic and a Coke head should not worry about testing anything @ScottCoker always do a good job.”

Then, Werdum posted, “You shouldn’t manage any female because you cannot be trusted with anybody’s daughter or wife when I see you I’m gonna give you Brazilian‘s slap.”

Cyborg momentarily chimed into the conversation to say that she wasn’t actually managed by McGregor, but she deleted the tweet just a few minutes after posting it.

Both McGregor and Cyborg have the same manager, Audie Attar, and are managed by Paradigm Sports.
