Jeremy Stephens wants war with Conor McGregor and brought his mom into the mix.
After his majority draw with Jose Aldo at Gamebred Boxing 4, it seems Jeremy Stephens knows what he wants next. Taking to Twitter on Sunday, Stephens called out Conor McGregor using a photo of McGregor's mom to get his attention.
The day after his majority draw with Aldo, Stephens was ready to pick his next fight. Looking for a battle against McGregor, he shared the photo of McGregor's mom asking for a fight.
"Your brittle bones ready to throw some heat?" Stephens began. "Name the place and time, u can have the steroids because I know u got wobbly legs in the late rounds."
Jeremy Stephens and Conor McGregor have a history of trash talk including a now-icon press conference moment
The two have beef that is literally half a decade old. At a press conference long ago, Stephens notoriously interrupted him to say, "McGregor TKO's people, when I knock them out they don't move."
In classic McGregor fashion, he looked up at Stephens, before uttering a hilarious response that would live on for years to come, "Who the f*** is that guy?"
Stephens has continued to call for a McGregor fight for years but it never gained traction with fans or the UFC.
The world has yet to see a response from McGregor, but knowing him, one is sure to come soon. He has beef of his own to settle first though before he could even entertain a fight with Stephens. McGregor is coaching the UFC's latest rendition of The Ultimate Fighter and is set to face Michael Chandler after the season airs. Stephens is also no longer signed to the UFC, making this match-up even less likely, in or out of the Octagon.
