The Notorious one, Conor McGregor and Jorge Masvidal are once again trading trash talk.
Masvidal, talking to MMA Fighting, recently implied that the Irishman would want no part of a fight with himself, saying “If he did, he’d post something, he’d say something, he’d probably just insult my mom or some relative of mine, my nation, where I come from, something like that.”
McGregor took to social media to address the comments, before deleting his tweet shortly afterwards.
Masvidal fired back with a one-two not long after.

On this day in MMA…
On June 29, 2001, at UFC 32: Showdown in the Meadowlands a 22-year-old Andre Arlovski would suffer his first defeat in the UFC at the hands of Ricco Rodriguez.
Rodriguez mounted Arlovski early in round one and rained down strikes until the referee stepped in at 1:23 of the first round.
Arlovski is now, 21 years later, riding a four-fight win streak in the promotion at 43 years old.
Here’s the best media I could find showing that fight.
