IRISH boxer Kenny Egan and UFC fighter Conor McGregor have been involved in an online Twitter spat after Egan posted a tongue-in-cheek photo linking MMA fighting with Brokeback Mountain.
McGregor, who stunned the UFC world at the weekend with a stunning 67-second knock-out debut in Stockholm, reacted angrily after Egan tweeted this picture last night.
McGregor tweeted: “Keep it shut Kenny, in pure un-armed combat, in its purest form, you are a NOVICE, stick to what you know.”
Egan responded by saying “keep your frilly panties on, I’m only having the Craic”, before later tweeting that people needed to take a chill pill as the “protein shakes are going to the head”.
