Ric Flair lashes out at Conor McGregor in Twitter rant

Published 8 Comments

Over the weekend, Conor McGregor reached peak Conor McGregor. 

The Irish fighter managed to upset a whole lot of WWE fans and superstars after yet another interesting interview where he hit out at the WWE and some stars, then going out on to social media to have a go at the entire WWE roster.

As you can imagine, some WWE stars have hit back at McGregor's claims - none too happy with The Notorious One. One WWE legend has taken to a whole new level, however.

Ric Flair saw McGregor's comments about WWE a little later than others but made up for it with a fantastic few tweets to hit out at the UFC featherweight champion.

Flair just came right out and accused McGregor of stealing his entire gimmick and persona and that there were several names in the WWE who could make him eat his words if they were put together in an octagon.

Flair was serious about Dolph Ziggler potentially beating McGregor one-on-one. The former WWE World Heavyweight Champion was an incredible amateur wrestler during his time in college at Kent State. 

During his time at Kent State, he set the school record for most wins in history as well as winning three championships, being inducted into their Hall of Fame earlier this year.

Conor McGregor is a notoriously poor ground game, so if Ziggler managed to get the Irishman off his feet then he could do some damage on the mat.

Brock Lesnar would absolutely destroy McGregor, that is not in doubt.
