Conor McGregor has bitten back at Michael Bisping, describing him as a ‘nobody’, following the former UFC champion’s warning that The Notorious would get torn ‘limb from limb’ by Daniel Cormier.
McGregor, who has been particularly outspoken on social media since his defeat to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264, made the comment during a Twitter Q&A.
It came after Bisping sent a fierce warning in the 33-year-old’s direction, insisting a bout between he and Daniel Cormier would be a non-starter, following a war of words between McGregor and the American in recent weeks.

Having been alerted to Bisping’s warning on Twitter, McGregor took aim at the retired 42-year-old, insisting he ‘rushed back to competition’ after his stoppage defeat to Georges St-Pierre.
‘Bisping is a nobody on Sirius xm,’ he wrote. ‘Rushed back to competition after being dropped/strangled and then gets shotgun slept by (Kelvin) Gastelum’s left hand. Devastating.
‘Even though I collect commission on all his fights, I still said to the team to pull the ‘gast’ fight. I knew it was coming.
‘But hey, 100k! 50k off the top of each fight. I used to say “yoink” every time it hit the account.’

McGregor is facing a year on the sidelines after suffering a fractured tibia in the UFC 264 headliner at the end of a first round dominated by Poirier.
However, the Irishman has stayed involved in a number of feuds since his second successive defeat, notably with 42-year-old Cormier.
McGregor described Cormier as a ‘fat drunk f***’, after the American was critical of both his post-fight interview, in which he took aim at Poirier and his family, and his later-deleted tweet directed at Khabib Nurmagomedov.
The tweet read ‘Covid is good and father is evil’, responding to the Russian’s comments that ‘good always defeats evil’ following McGregor’s defeat to Poirier.
Cormier said that McGregor’s tweet about Khabib’s father’s death was a ‘cry for help’, while also being impressed by Dustin Poirier’s checked kicks throughout the bout

Bisping believes McGregor is picking the wrong fight in Cormier, warning the Irishman that a bout between the two would be “murder”.
‘Careful what you wish for,’ Bisping said on the ‘Believe You Me’ podcast. ‘Careful who you’re picking fights with.
‘I’m not disrespecting Conor McGregor — but I don’t care what Conor McGregor it is, whether it’s double-champ Conor McGregor (or what). DC is gonna f****** pull you limb from limb.
‘He could do it one-handed, he could do it with one eye, two eyes, no eyes. He could do it after 25 Modelos. That ain’t a fight. That is murder, that is assault, somebody call the cops!’
Michael Bisping insists McGregor should stay away from a potential fight with Cormier
Cormier, who seems to have riled McGregor up after praising Poirier’s checked kicks in their UFC 264 bout, has previously described the Irishman’s subsequent Twitter outbursts as a cry for help.
He told ESPN: ‘I get shock value and I get trying to get people to talk but way too far. To the point that I immediately called Khabib last night and said, “Are you OK?”
‘Asking him if he’s OK after having to see that, especially with no ability to do anything about it again. He spoke to my kids at my wrestling program the other day and said he was never happier than when he got to fight McGregor on the day. Because for so long, he wanted to get his hands on Conor and beat Conor up.’
Cormier added: ‘(Conor McGregor) Absolutely crossed the line.
‘I think when stuff like that is being said, it’s a cry for help. Conor has all the money in the world, he has all the fame, but now when you start to dig at that level, it’s like somebody needs to get to McGregor and help him to start to kind of re-shift his mind and his focus and get him back to a better place. It’s unfortunate.’
