Now you’ve done it, Conor.
When newly minted UFC featherweight champ Conor McGregor was asked by bastion of journalistic ethics TMZ about fighting Jesus Christ, he didn’t hold back. In fact, he said he’d whoop Jesus’ ass if he came back from the dead.
And now Wanderlei Silva is pissed off about it.
Silva posted a video on Facebook wherein he addresses Conor’s knockout of Jose Aldo at UFC 194, calling it lucky and an accident. He also goes off on McGregor for making his Jesus comments because what else would you expect from a religious guy nicknamed “The Axe Murderer?”
Full disclosure, we can’t understand a word of what Wanderlei is saying in the video because no one on our staff speaks Portuguese. Luckily, our buddy Guilherme Cruz of MMAFighting.com speaks the language fluently and is pretty cool with us linking his stories, so to the quoteage!
“Everybody saw it was an accident. This a–hole was lucky,” Wandy said. “And when I meet this guy, for everything he said about Jesus, I will slap this motherf–ker in the face. You can’t do that. You can’t play with our God. When I meet you, raise your hand because you’re getting slapped in the face, you punk.”
Hot DAYUM! An angry Wandy gives us the 2005 feels all over again.
