Conor McGregor has taunted his rivals in a hilarious new advertisement filmed with fast food giants Burger King, Irish Mirror reports.
‘The Notorious’ tucks into a spicy chicken sandwich after saying that all the ‘chicken’ and ‘king’ talk has got him fired up. It appears to be a reference to fellow UFC star Khabib Nurmagomedov who has repeatedly called McGregor a ‘chicken’ in the past. And with the Dubliner recently confirming that he fully intends to return to the octagon, he seems ready to silence his doubters.
He captioned a link to the advertisement on Instagram:
“Forget Floyd, forget Nate, forget Khabib and forget Tony. I finally found a real contender who can bring the heat #Burgerking.” McGregor, joined by the character ‘The Burger King’, finishes the monologue by saying: “oh, by the way, thanks for all the trash talk guys, you just put Conor Junior through college.”
Meanwhile, McGregor has described Frankie Edgar as a “true fighter’s fighter” following his UFC 222 defeat to Brian Ortega. Ortega pulled off a shock by defeating ‘The Answer’ in the early hours of this morning, with McGregor sending a message to the defeated American afterward.
The Notorious had put his name forward to fight Edgar at the Las Vegas event, but his offer was rejected. He posted on Twitter: “Frankie’s career deserved for that to be against me tonight.
“Love and respect always!
“A true fighter’s fighter.”
The Dubliner’s comments come after Dana White confirmed he will be stripped of his lightweight belt. Tony Ferguson faces Khabib Nurmagomedov on April 7 and White says that will be for the belt.Kroger survey is the best place to reveal your feedback.
