While fans have quickly taken to UFC prospect Conor McGregor, his fellow featherweights probably won't be so eager.

Especially after the Irish fighter's latest tweets.

"Aldo-Safe. Mendes-135er. Lamas-Nobody cares. Cub-OLD. TKZ-Open. Edgar-135er. Siver-OLD. Poirier-PeaHead. Guida-Boring. Lentz-Boring. Koch-?."

Oh boy. This should make things interesting

I can't say I'm a huge fan of stuff like this, but I can't hate the guy for it either. He wants to fight the best.

Not sold on him yet, I think they all beat him and some of them in spectacular fashion.

I wasn't too impressed by his performance, he is calling out some big wigs for sure though! Good job making yourself known though!

I wonder if any of these guys will risk fighting him.

This guys never fought a top ten and wont beat any of them. If he fought Lentz then Lentz would finish this guy with ease, as would most guys. No one in the top ten would lose to this guy.

Lentz said he's working on another fight at the moment. But would be up for derailing the hype train afterwards. War 145 Lentz

He knows how to get people to talk about him, I'll give him that. I agree that he loses to most of the guys he insulted though. Cub old? He's 29. 4 years older than McGregor. Mendes a 135 pounder? Edgar a 135 pounder? He's been at 155 his entire career except 2 fights. If you're going to insult some of the best fighters in the world at least make it funny or true. I do like McGregor though and it's obvious he has potential. It's just difficult to think he's anything but an up and comer at this point.

I think Uncle Chael needs to sit this guy down and teach him how to not sound like a tool
