Conor McGregor wasn’t in Orlando for the final UFC card of 2015, but he was the talk of the town and now he’s responded to the multiple call outs he heard during the broadcast on Saturday night.
McGregor finished out his 2015 a week ago when he knocked out Jose Aldo in just 13 seconds at UFC 194 to cap off a 3-0 year for the new featherweight champion.
Despite preparing for a trip home to Ireland for the holidays, McGregor heard his name called on three different occasions during Saturday night’s event, including lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos offering to give him a rude welcome if he decides to test the waters at 155 pounds.

McGregor responded as only he could.
"Line them up on their knees with their hands out," McGregor wrote on Twitter. "I want them to beg me."
McGregor’s post also included a shot of one of the new cars purchased following his stunning victory over Aldo at UFC 194.
There was no doubt that McGregor was the most talked about man in Orlando with Charles Oliveira, Nate Diaz and dos Anjos all mentioning him in their post-fight interviews with UFC commentator Joe Rogan.
It’s clear McGregor is the biggest fight to land in the UFC today and a slew of fighters will be lining up for the chance to face him next in 2016.
Who actually lands the fight first remains to be seen.
