Outspoken MMA fighter Conor McGregor had a bizarre online practice match with Dublin TD Neale Richmond on social media last night.
The controversial fighter from Crumlin took to Twitter to express his views on Covid-19 vaccines and his belief that Ireland should leave the EU.
He also posted a photo of Fine Gael’s European Affairs spokesperson cheering at a football game at the Aviva stadium, implying that the politician was under the influence of ecstasy.
“Were you at E at Aviva last week?” McGregor posted @TheNotoriousMMA on his Twitter account.
“Happy, sweaty sap. Mandatory vaccination is coming to the EU. But even which one? 1st? 2.? Boost? Omikron? And the message to be delivered by the same people will do as they are told.”
But Mr. Richmond responded with his unique binoculars and tweeted: “Here’s the champ. Neale. But when you get the missing e right in front of you, you’ll find that EU membership is good for Ireland and vaccinations ensure that many Irish don’t die while on a yacht. On the Med.”
But grace in the blow was throwing back the famous taunt McGregor said to his rival Nate Diaz during a now-infamous press conference ahead of the UFC 202 game in Las Vegas in August 2016, landing on a water bottle. quarrel between the pair.
Openly angered that McGregor was half an hour late for the press conference, Diaz swore at McGregor and stepped off the stage, which he replied:
“Shut up, you won’t do anything! You won’t do anything! None of you will do anything!”
