The Very Best Twitter Reactions To Conor McGregor’s Insane Cameo At The UFC 223 Media Day

Twitter’s MMA community was sent into chaos as the UFC’s lightweight champion Conor McGregor ran away with the show at the UFC 223 media day.

If you thought that UFC 223’s fight-week peaked with the insane pull-out of Tony Ferguson from his headlining matchup with Khabib Nurmagomedov, then think again.

This has been one helluva a week for the sport but yesterday at the official media day for the show, things turned ugly very fast as Conor McGregor and a crew of his teammates stormed a bus containing some very prominent fighters scheduled to appear on UFC 223 this weekend.

We all know the backstory of what happened but with such an unexpected turn of events, Twitter’s MMA community went into a frenzy as more details about the incident emerged.

Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg, who were both pulled from their respective matchups due to injuries sustained during the skirmish had more reason than most to be outraged. Chiesa made a brief comment to his fans following his withdrawal.

And, of course, Malignaggi wasn’t too far away from getting in on the action.

One of the three men to actually defeat Conor in mixed martial arts competition took a moment to reflect on the damage this may do to the sport’s growing reputation back in Ireland, a point that is pretty valid considering how divisive McGregor is at home.

Finally, the light-heavyweight champion of the world comes through with a pretty hilarious idea for a punishment.
