“I feel like we’re in elementary school and Conor McGregor is following me around trying to get my sloppy seconds back.”
It is Justin gaethje blasting The Notorious, recounting TMZ Sports Conor McGregor tries to fight every guy he’s ever beaten up, and the UFC star thinks that’s pretty funny.
“I hate to say it because it’s disrespectful to the opponents I beat,” said Justin.
“I fought Cowboy [Cerrone]. Then he wants to fight Cowboy. I just beat up Chandler. Now he wants to fight Chandler. He will never say my name. And, Ferguson is also on the list now. “
Of course, Gaethje – the No. 2 ranked lightweight – beat Chandler by unanimous decision at UFC 268… in one of the greatest fights of all time.
And, last year, Justin beat Tony Ferguson by unanimous decision … which earned him a title shot against Khabib.
Over the past few weeks, Conor has expressed interest in fighting the two men… Chandler and Ferguson.
Someone the Irish superstar hasn’t called (at least lately)… is Justin.
So we asked Gaethje – who has already made it clear he wants to spoil McGregor – if he’s still interested in the fight.
“Do I want to do [Conor’s] does the face resemble that of Tony Ferguson and Michael Chandler? Absoutely. Will he ever allow it? No! He’s got way too many smart people around this guy and he’s no idiot. “
“He could knock me out. Olivera could knock me out, Poirier could knock me out, but they have to pray to God that they land this blow.”
We also spoke to Justin about his beef with Colby Covington (Gaethje trains with CC’s rival, Kamaru Usman) … and JG makes it known, he’s not looking to fight in the Octagon with “Chaos”.
But, if they see each other on the streets … as Justin says, “It’s gonna fuck like Donkey Kong.”
