Former BMF champ, and newly retired fighter, Jorge Masvidal inserted himself into the post-UFC 291 drama and we are totally here for it.

On Monday Masvidal took to Twitter took call out McGregor who took aim at the new BMF champ, Justin Gaethje.

" [Conor McGregor] shut ur mouth you pissing hot midget ur not cleared to fight. Talking about fighters going thru the grind and process. I bet you never say my name you scared." He also included a chicken emoji.

At press time McGregor had not yet replied to the tweet, but knowing him, he will.

Some of his previous tweets called out Gaethje who he promised to knockout, "I KO him one shot. Guarantee it," he tweeted.

Gaethje won the BMF title after an insane head kick KO of Dustin Poirier in the main event at UFC 291 on Satruday and it prompted several arguments amongst many of the UFC's lightweight division including a row between Michael Chandler and Poirier after Chandler called out Gaethje and indicated he'd be his first real test.

It's nice to see the OG BMF is sticking up for the new BMF ... even though we know he can fight for himself.
