True Geordie has challenged UFC legend Conor McGregor to a charity fight following a brutal voice note from the Irishman likening him to a ‘burns victim’.
The weird and wonderful world of social media never ceases to amaze. With each new day, you never know which stars will find themselves bickering over comments made on their respective platforms.
McGregor is no stranger to a good back-and-forth. While he’s notorious for his exploits in the octagon, he’s certainly used to confrontation in the outside world, too, regularly finding himself in a war of words.
The catalyst for this particular feud was a video True Geordie made about an interview McGregor had done with Ariel Helwani for DAZN Boxing.
Throughout the video, the straight-talking northerner regularly implied McGregor was under the influence, and not just of alcohol, either.
Despite True Geordie stating it wasn’t intended as a jibe, McGregor, who boasts a record of 22 wins and 6 losses in the UFC, clearly took offence.
He responded by posting a scathing voice note on Twitter, calling True Geordie a host of names, including a ‘fat f***’ and ‘little burns victim looking thing’.
True Geordie has since sensationally responded by laying down a challenge for his new rival. In a video titled ‘My Response’, he said: “The funniest thing is the way he’s talking about me in this video. The way he complained about Nate Diaz being too big for him, too strong for him at 170lb.
“Mate, I’m 300 f***ing pounds and built like a rugby player. I’m the size of the guys Floyd Mayweather and you hire to protect you when you’re walking around in public.
“I would pick Conor McGregor up like a shopping bag with one arm. He is so small compared to me, and I know his fans will think he’s like Superman or whatever, but they’ve got weight classes for a reason bro.
“I’m more than twice the size of this man. Look, if you want to do a charity fight, MMA, boxing, or anything, I don’t really give a sh*t because I’m literally a giant compared to you. We’ll donate the money to burn victims, how about that?
“Anytime, anywhere, any place, I really don’t care. Someone needs to shut that f***ing hole in your face.”
With McGregor set to make his long-awaited return against Michael Chandler later this year, it’s unlikely we’ll see any matchup with True Geordie come to fruition in the near future.
But if it did happen, it would undoubtedly be one of the most bizarre crossover events to date.
