Conor McGregor has made a habit of tweeting threats and insults at current and former UFC fighters before promptly deleting them since his second consecutive loss to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264.
This time, McGregor is taking aim at former two-division champion Daniel Cormier.
McGregor was responding to Cormier’s past comments saying McGregor “crossed the line” by mocking the death of former lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov’s father. McGregor also previously appeared to threaten to kill Dustin Poirier and his family in their sleep.
The Irishman wasn’t fond of Cormier’s critique, so he called out Cormier for being a “fat mess” and drunk on the job.
“Daniel Cormier is a fat mess. Getting into worse condition by the day. God bless him,” McGregor wrote before deleting the messages. “Showing up drunk at media events the very day before he was in the booth calling my fight. Drunk at a media event working? The day before being a commentator on the biggest fight in history?
“It is a sackable offense for a commentator to be drunk at presswork the day before commentating the big fight. Dreadful! Get it together. Belching in the mic at a press event and all wtf.”
For context, McGregor was referring to a segment on the UFC 264 weigh-in show where Cormier chugged a beer with Laura Sanko.

The UFC weigh-in shows always include goofy segments, so this was nothing out of the ordinary.
That has to leave everyone wondering: what is McGregor trying to gain by continuously attacking fighters and UFC employees? I guess only he knows.
With his latest loss, McGregor dropped to 3-4 since beating Jose Aldo for the featherweight championship in 2016. McGregor has won just one fight in the past five years and is just 1-4 in the UFC at 155-pounds.
