In the main event of UFC 291, Justin Gaethje scored a head-kick KO win over Dustin Poirier in the second round to become the new BMF champion. After the result, McGregor took to social media to claim he would KO Gaethje with one shot and stated that he was the real BMF, not Gaethje or Poirier.

To no surprise, Jorge Masvidal took to social media to back his teammate in Poirier and to also defend Gaethje as he told the Irishman to take a drug test and not trash fighters when he’s not cleared to fight.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Jorge Masvidal took aim at Conor McGregor as he was upset that his longtime teammate and friend Dustin Poirier lost on Saturday. As well, ‘Gamebred’ and McGregor have also taken shots at one another in the past and at one point, many thought a fight between the two would happen.

Currently, Conor McGregor has not responded to Jorge Masvidal’s tweet and whether or not he will remains to be seen. However, it is clear that ‘Gamebred’ and ‘Notorious’ are still not seeing eye-to-eye.

As for McGregor’s fighting career, he is currently not in the USADA testing pool but is coaching TUF 31 opposite Michael Chandler. The hope the two would fight later this year, but with him still not in the USADA testing pool the odds of that happening are unlikely. He last fought back in July of 2021 when he broke his leg against Dustin Poirier in their trilogy match.
