Conor McGregor recently found himself embroiled in a heated back-and-forth with fellow UFC fighter Rafael Fiziev on social media. Their dispute led Fiziev to offer McGregor training together. However, the Irishman didn’t seem too receptive.
A difference of opinion regarding a defensive move during fights caused the argument between the two fighters. Fiziev offered to prove his point to McGregor by training together at his home gym, Tiger Muay Thai.
While the Dubliner had previously admitted he might consider going to Tiger Muay Thai if he ever ended up in Thailand, he later left on Fiziev, rejecting his offer to train together.
‘The Notorious’ compared Fiziev’s nose to a golf ball and called himself Tiger Woods, who is more than equipped to make quick work of the Kyrgyz lightweight.
Check out Conor McGregor’s message on Twitter below:
“No problem mate, sound. Think of me like Tiger Woods with a 12 iron and your nose like the golf ball. And think of me sprinting for it with a running kick and kiss your little elbow back . . Oh you bend over, wow, that’s awesome. Congratulations mate haha”
Conor McGregor expresses his loyalty to his team
A member of the esteemed SBG Ireland team, Conor McGregor spoke lyrically about his team’s work ethic in a recent post on Twitter.
Proud of himself and his team for their collective Irish heritage, the Crumlin native also hailed Dubai as his home, proving true to his Middle Eastern roots when it comes to training.
“Yup my team! My team for life! We’ve been skinning pussies for years. Fucking practice today guys, these guys are pish. Let’s go drive some balls off the top of the burj Al Arab instead! Yup my country Dubai! We train here! Yup my country Ireland! For life we rule!”

Finally out of his long layoff brought on by a devastating injury sustained in the fight against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264, Conor McGregor is well on his way to returning to active wrestling inside the octagon.
However, given his physical stature, a return to lightweight seems highly unlikely, resulting in a move to the welterweight division, possibly indefinitely. Additionally, McGregor is currently a hot commodity in the UFC as he is courted by fighters like Charles Oliveira, Michael Chandler and many more.
