It is unclear who McGregor is responding to. Boxing legend Mike Tyson recently claimed that he could beat the MMA star in a boxing match. Tony Ferguson also spoke recently about being open to go one on one with McGregor.
Regardless of the opponent however, this tweet is sure to set tongues wagging.
McGregor last fought Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone via first-round TKO back in January. This was his first match since losing to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 in October 2018.
