UFC Fighter Accuses McGregor Of Buying Twitter Followers & Calling Out Losers

Is the UFC’s hottest Irish commodity nothing more than a phony and faker?

TUF veteran and UFC middleweight fighter Luke Barnatt seems to think so.

The up-and-comer had some harsh words for his fellow European during his recent guest slot on ‘The MMA Hour‘.

Check it:

“Paradigm is the management company that I believe that Conor McGregor is under. They have this interesting concept that they believe that your following is depicted by how many people you have on Twitter, so your whole MMA following, if you’ve got followers on Twitter, then obviously you’re a big deal, and they find that easier to go out and get sponsorships and make you look important. So they employ this thing called Tweetbot. You pay a certain amount of money, and you get these fake followers. So they’re built and they’re made by a computer, and they follow certain people. If you go through the followers, the Paradigm guys, not all of them but some of them, you’ll find these rival accounts that make up a lot of the percentage for people who is following. Yeah, it makes them look like they’re a big deal, it makes them look like they’ve got lots of fans, and it makes them look important.”

“I’m not jealous of Conor, he’s a cool guy. I’ve met him a few times. But, I just think if you want to be fake and you pretend like you’re a big deal by getting all of these followers then calling out people like Diego Sanchez is weak, and things like that start to irritate me. If you’re going to call somebody out, for one you call somebody out in your own weight division, and number two, you call somebody out who is coming off of a win. You don’t call somebody out who’s a loser. What’s the point in that? It don’t make much sense in my eyes.”

    Luke Barnatt needs to win a few fights before spouting about other fighters. McGregor has shown in the cage that he has exceptional skills. Barnatt is a jealous can.

    • UFC 84 Forever says:

      McGregor’s done nothing worth noting in the UFC yet other than injuring himself and still talking shit… Barnatt needs to put the work in too, no denying that, but McGregor is riding a hype train not a fight train…

      • The Way Of The Dutchman says:

        I’ve seen him fight in Cage Warriors. He is something special. He’s always two steps ahead of his opponent and the way he overcame adversary in the Holloway fight was pretty impressive too.
        .
        During the fight I was disappointed, but after finding out he blew his knee in the first round I think it’s a sign of future greatness. If a fighter gets seriously injured during a fight and knows how to adapt his original game plan and manages to beat a solid fighter like Holloway it means he’s not an average fighter.

  2. 757 says:

    They are both to new to talk shit. Diego is going to smoke that tool.

  3. Ddddddddd says:

    I’m not sure why someone would want to challenge someone that lost his last three. Diego looks like shit. He was gifted his last two wins and doesn’t have the basic coordination it takes to compete at a high level anymore. Diego isn’t a loser he’s irrelevant. If he finished Diego it would mean something but not that much to me.
