Conor McGregor took his beef with Michael Bisping to the next level by threatening to ‘give away’ the UFC Hall of Famer.
McGregor hasn’t fought since suffering a catastrophic leg injury at UFC 264 in July 2021 and is currently healing ahead of his highly anticipated comeback bout in 2023.
While away from the Octagon, the 34-year-old decided to take on his first acting role in Amazon’s reimagining of the 1980s classic Road House.
‘Notorious’ recently toured the Dominican Republic alongside Hollywood superstar Jake Gyllenhaal and clearly feels confident in his work.
On Thursday, ‘Notorious’ took to social media to poke fun at ‘twerps’ who want to be actors like him, naming ‘The Count’ as someone who tried and failed to pursue a career in television and At the movie theater.
Bisping, who recently traveled to Bulgaria to shoot a movie with “The Scariest Man Alive” Martyn Ford, quickly caught wind of McGregor’s comments and responded on his podcast.
“He’s all fired up, he’s had his first beer and he’s doing a great show with Jake Gyllenhaal, God bless him. Good to fuck you. Well done. Why do you have to throw shade at me? I don’t get it said Bisping.
“Just make sure you have your bodyguards around the next time you come over and want to talk some bullshit. You little f***.

‘Mystic Mac’ didn’t appreciate Bisping’s response and launched a furious attack on Britain’s first UFC champion on social media, which he has since deleted.
“Bisping you’ll do whatever you can do, little sprinter I’m gonna bust your head in,” McGregor said in the first of a long barrage of now-deleted tweets. “S*** fighter, s*** actor. Sirius Xm head,” McGregor wrote.

McGregor and Bisping faced off for the first time following UFC 264 as the former featherweight and lightweight champion challenged Daniel Cormier commenting on his latest loss to Dustin Poirier.
Bisping stepped in and exchanged mean words with McGregor on social media over the next few days before things calmed down.
The tension between the two UFC legends seemed to have eased over the past few months, but it’s now worse than ever following their latest trade which is certainly not over yet.
