Following his spectacular victory against Justin Gaethje at UFC 274, Charles Oliveira called out Conor McGregor, possibly for a fight in Brazil. While some fans and MMA experts were receptive of the idea, others slammed it completely owing to the Irishman’s record and current inactivity due to injury.

The callout aggravated Beneil Dariush. In a recent interview on The Fighter vs. The Writer podcast, he stated:

“He’s talking about wanting to fight Conor McGregor, and he talks about how these guys never gave him a shot when he was outside the top five, blah, blah, blah. We were supposed to fight October of 2020. I have a fight contract, I can post a picture of it. I was supposed to fight Charles, and he pulled out of the fight, and then a couple months later, instead of fighting me, he fought Tony Ferguson. He said something about family issues and I’m not going to say, ‘Oh, he didn’t fight me, I can’t believe it.’ Family comes first, I understand that. But the same thing people did to him, he’s doing to me.”

Reacting to the criticism, McGregor called Dariush the biggest nobody in the game today. He said,‘ Beneil Dariush is the biggest nobody in the company’

‘You need to understand setup punches’- Henry Cejudo offers some advice to Conor McGregor in a sarcasm fueled Tweet

Conor McGregor recently shared a clip of him boxing at the Crumlin Boxing Club. The Irishman seemed to be trying to get into rhythm as he returns from a leg injury.

Former two-division UFC champion himself, Henry Cejudo wasn’t quite impressed by the footage. Conor can be seen working the round pad, hitting some heavy shots with full throttle and swing. Cejudo stated that swinging the hips entirely like in a boxing fight opens up takedown opportunities, and puts fighters in a backseat when it comes to sprawling or takedown defense.

Cejudo also referred to himself as the GOAT (greatest of all time) and posted this on social media. ‘MMA is different than boxing if you over turn your hips it leads to easy takedowns. It’s hard to recover your position if you over throw your hips. You essentially add more time to whatever punch you throw next. You really need to understand setup punches. – Sincerely the ’
