Conor McGregor labelled ‘crackhead’ by UFC fighter
McGregor was branded a ‘crackhead’ by one of his possible future opponents Justin Gaethje.
The Irish fighter got embroiled in controversy in recent weeks after video footage showed him punching a man in a Dublin pub after ‘refusing to drink his whiskey’.
He apologised on ESPN and also said he had been in talks to fight Gaethje before breaking his hand.
Gaethje will now fight Donald Cerrone but has set his sights on McGregor.
“I was training for a fight but McGregor broke his hand early,” he told TMZ.
“So I think even before it would have gotten to me he broke his hand and it didn’t come together.
“Cowboy’s No.4 and [McGregor’s] No.3 so after I get through Cowboy it’s on to the next, and that’s him.
“He brings the most attention, he’s the biggest superstar in this sport, he’s not even fighting and he’s still the biggest superstar.
“So of course I want to f*** him up. I see him punch an old man, do I want to punch him for that? F*** yeah, I want to f*** that dude up for s*** like that.
“He looks like a crackhead on your video. He hasn’t fought in two and a half years, but he just has to fight and we’re talking about it.”
