Conor McGregor recently laid out his picks for the Greatest of All Time in MMA, and his arguments featured what could be perceived as a dig at Michael Bisping.

“GSP is in at 3,” McGregor wrote, explaining why he gave Georges St-Pierre the No. 3 spot on his list. “Much less array of finishes but champion status in 2. He is far behind though. Reasons = Left 170 after much damage taken+questionable decision. Never re-engaged 170lb successors. Bottled Anderson fight. Only moved when one eyed fighter presented. Played safe.”

The “one-eyed fighter” McGregor is alluding to, of course, is Bisping, who famously took a tremendous amount of damage to his eyes over the course of his Hall-of-Fame career.

Speaking on Twitter on Monday, Bisping responded to this comment from the former two-division champ.

“Well this one eyed fighter you speak of actually beat your number one [Anderson Silva], and he defended his belt so your logic doesn’t really add up,” Bisping wrote. “Anyway, have a good day.’

Bisping then clarified that, contrary to this difference of opinion, he respects McGregor and considers him the most exciting fighter in the game.

“He’s a legend of the game for sure,” Bisping wrote. “Not throwing any digs. Most exciting fighter in the game. Still I read that and I had to respond.”

Bisping also noted that he isn’t concerned with his position in the GOAT rankings.

“No designs on being a GOAT,” Bisping wrote. “Just a guy that fought his ass off trying to look after his family. That’ll do me and is more than enough in terms of legacy.”
