The verbal war between Conor McGregor and the WWE isn't over just yet. Last week, TMZ Sports released audio from a conference call to promote his upcoming rematch against Nate Diaz at UFC 202 where The Notorious called WWE superstars "messed up pussies." Obviously, Conor's remarks didn't go over well with many WWE stars, who took shots at him on social media. And just when it looked like the dust had settled, McGregor returned fire.  

After getting asked about how upset he made Ric Flair and other WWE stars, McGregor said the "old school guys," including Flair, are "legends," but referred to the current roster as "dweebs." Then, he took an incredibly hard jab at John Cena. "What's the main guy? John Cena," he said. "He's 40. He's 40 years of age. He's walking around in a luminous orange t-shirt and a headband talking about nobody can see him. We can see him right there. He's a big fat, 40-year-old failed Mr. Olympia motherfucker, do you know what I mean?"

Yikes! But McGregor wasn't done there. Conor also responded to Flair's challenge to "try guys like Dolph, Brock, or Fit" after his UFC 202 bout.

"I don't know what to say to Ric Flair," McGregor said. "This ain't no gimmick. This is the real sh*t. I've gotta get in and fight a man for real. With no script, with no nothing. He was talking about bringing some other wrestler guys out to challenge me. Come bring it, then. This is the real shit over here. You know want to come over, we can fight no problem. A few of them are talking about the street and all. If they want to do that, come at me and see what happens."

So, uh, yeah—this feud isn't close to being done.
