A Former MMA Champion Wants to Slap Conor McGregor For Sh*t-Talking Jesus

“The Axe Murderer” is a devout man.

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.
