Conor McGregor responds to call outs from Rafael dos Anjos, Nate Diaz: “I want them to beg me”

By Jamie Penick, MMATorch Editor-in-Chief

Everyone wants a piece of the Conor McGregor money train, and the new UFC Featherweight Champion is more than happy to be the center of attention.

McGregor was called out by both UFC Champ Rafael dos Anjos and lightweight Nate Diaz on Saturday night after both won at UFC on Fox 17, and he responded as one might expect on Twitter.

Penick’s Analysis: That’s just a great response. McGregor holds all the cards at the moment, and of course everyone else wants to be a part of it. If they can get even a portion of the money he’s going to be bringing in, they want to be involved. In dos Anjos’ case, he could be the death knell to McGregor’s run if given the chance, because he’s big, strong, fast, and just blitzed the hell out of Donald Cerrone. I still don’t think Diaz is in the running at all, but there’s money there if the UFC wants to put that fight together at some point.
