Conor McGregor is set to take on Rafael dos Anjos on March 5th, but recently the brash fighter unleashed a verbal assault on his teammate, Fabricio Werdum.
McGregor was recently handed the “Fight of the Year” award at the 2016 World MMA Awards in Las Vegas. The featherweight champ wasn’t at the event to accept it, but he did send in an acceptance video, in which he had this to say about Werdum (quote via MMA Fighting.com):
“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? 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…”
Werdum pulled out of UFC 196 (when it was still UFC 196) after Cain Velasquez announced he could not fight due to a back injury. Werdum proceeded to say he was also injured and was not going to fight replacement Stipe Miocic as a result.
