UFC Lightweight, Diego Sanchez, is the latest fighter to call out Conor McGregor. As we all know by now, McGregor is not one to back down from anyone. He has fired shots at every featherweight the UFC has to offer, Miesha Tate and Ronda Rousey, and much more.

Most fighters have not approved of the fast rise of McGregor, stating that he is all hype. Unfortunately, McGregor is rehabbing a knee injury, so the hype train is stalled at this point. As we have found out time and time again, that won’t stop him from speaking his mind.

McGregor was quick to respond to Sanchez:

Of course Diego can’t let a Featherweight get the last word, and here is his poignant response:

Not to be outdone, McGregor went for the jugular:

Diego finished off the exchange with a simple tweet:

The two are likely to never meet inside the Octagon, as they are in different weight classes, but their twitter exchange is exciting nonetheless.
