Conor McGregor thinks UFC 'bums' should thank him for 'seven-figure paydays'

BY foxsports • April 6, 2016

UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor made his UFC debut exactly three years ago, but the Irishman doesn't feel his fellow fighters have been truly appreciative of his time under the UFC banner.

McGregor took to Twitter on Wednesday to call out the entire roster of fighters, or as "Notorious" likes to call them – "bums."

McGregor began his "crusade" at UFC Fight Night Stockholm, where he earned the first of six knockouts he'd eventually score inside the Octagon.

Since that victory, McGregor has run through the UFC featherweight division while becoming an international superstar and multi-millionaire in the process. And there's no doubting that those who are fortunate enough to face him in the Octagon reap the monetary rewards.

The last three Pay-Per-View events headlined by McGregor (UFC 189, UFC 194, UFC 196) have been absolute hits, and Nate Diaz reportedly made "millions" after their fight, according to UFC president Dana White. However, for some reason, we can't see Diaz thanking McGregor anytime soon.

Maybe he should actually apologize for potentially ruining the UFC's reported plans for McGregor vs. GSP at UFC 200.
