Conor McGregor

I am actually disgusted

Conor McGregor issued boxer Ryan Garcia with a chilling threat, which he has since deleted, after his recent failed drugs test.

Garcia tested positive for a banned performance-enhancing drug in tests before and after his recent victory against Devin Haney on April 20.

The revelation has seen Garcia face plenty of criticism, with Haney and his father, Bill, accusing the American of risking his opponent’s life.

He also missed weight by 3.2lbs but claims he didn’t cheat and that there are conspiracies against him.

McGregor lays into Garcia

McGregor has been a vocal advocate of Garcia in the past but sent a stern warning to the 25-year-old as well as UFC rival Sean O’Malley, who has also tested positive for ostarine, the same PED found in Garcia’s system, before later deleting the message.

“Cheated the weight and was juiced, lifetime ban,” the Irishman stated.

“Sad to see, sad to say. Sad and a bit sick. Don’t come near me if I see you ever Ryan Garcia. I am actually disgusted.

“This ostarine reminds me of Sean O’Malley was on that as well. I don’t like this, I’ll bust yous both up, do you want a spar I will set flight right now for you both for a full on spar each.

“Hotel, black forge inn the lot. #LetsSparOMalley and #Garcia two little ostarine heads I’ll ride you both like yous are ostriches.”

The MMA star then took his comments to the next level and issued a chilling threat to the American.

He added: “Wtf is up. What do you think you are at? If I was Haney’s dad you’re dead no matter what for doing that. Crazy.

“What the f*** happened to you, you little fool. Get your head together cos I’m gonna smash it in with elbows if you don’t.

“Fair play Devin well done. Your performance has just become even more heroic! Bravo.

“GET YOUR HEAD TOGETHER OR KILL YOURSELF.”

McGregor set to make return to the octagon

After two-and-a-half-years away from the octagon, McGregor is finally set to make his MMA return.

He is set to face Michael Chandler at UFC 303 on June 29.
