The rivalry between the two champions grew immensely after McGregor downplayed Werdum’s injuries that caused him to pull out of his title fight that caused a scheduled UFC PPV event to be switched to a UFC Fight Night event televised on cable.
Werdum took to Instagram after McGregor suffered a second-round submission to Nate Diaz in a welterweight bout and sent a loud and spiteful message.
Werdum captioned his post, “Toma @thenotoriousmma PROSTITUTA! Tem q respeitar os outros lutadores! #cudecachorro .
You have to respect the other fighters
@redeglobo @portaldovaletudo @graciemag_br @tatamemagazine @canalcombateoficial @ufc @ufc_brasil”
McGregor’s outspoken character is sure to have had his fair share of attacks following his first loss in the UFC but has been professional following his loss and will explore the options for his next fight likely at UFC 200.
