Jeremy Stephens never forgot what Conor McGregor said to him at the UFC 205 pre-fight press conference last year but he finally fired back on Thursday.
McGregor’s original comment came after Stephens piped up at him during one of the Irishman’s on stage tirades. Stephens informed the future UFC lightweight champion that he was the real hardest hitting fighter in the UFC and McGregor responded by asking “who the f–k is that guy?” before getting a raucous reaction from the crowd.
Well, Stephens took his time to respond but he came back firing with both barrels in a Twitter post on Thursday posing next to McGregor’s mother in a photo.
McGregor hasn’t responded yet but it seems like only a matter of time before he sees the post on Twitter direct at him by Stephens.
Stephens is actually about to get married this weekend following a dominant win over Gilbert Melendez in his last fight as he’s been hunting for another top named opponent in the UFC’s featherweight division. McGregor may no longer be fighting at 145 pounds but he might have a whole new reason to go back there to settle the score with Stephens.
