Conor McGregor never stops talking. Even when he’s answering an asinine question like, “You vs. Jesus in the Octagon, how would you fare?”
“I tell you what, there's not a man alive that can beat me," McGregor told TMZ earlier this month, gamely answering a question that would have led most to end the interview. "But Jesus ain’t alive so I don't f---ing know. Maybe he can come back from the dead, I don't know. I'd still whoop his ass."
Now, McGregor’s blasphemy has earned him the ire of a man who few would want to piss off — former UFC fighter Wanderlei Silva. The 39-year-old Brazilian recently posted a rant on Facebook claiming McGregor got lucky in his UFC 194 fight with Jose Aldo and threatening to defend the honor of God’s son.
“…When I meet this guy, for everything he said about Jesus, I will slap this motherf--ker in the face. You can’t do that. You can’t play with our God. When I meet you, raise your hand because you’re getting slapped in the face, you punk,” Silva said.
We look forward to finding out what McGregor has to say about this.
