13 Tweets That Prove Conor McGregor Should be in the UFC Hall of Fame
While the rest of us were killing time at the water cooler yesterday, the reigning Mouth of the UFC was busy. Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor took to Twitter to remind us all why he’s not only Notorious in 13 seconds but in 140 characters, too.
The highlight of the Kanye-style Twitter blast was when McGregor inducted himself into the UFC Hall of Fame. For those interested, the application process does not, in fact, occur on Twitter. But sports outlets are hinting that the tweet could be a sign of things to come at this summer’s International Fight Week in Las Vegas.
If inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame, McGregor would join early UFC greats, including Randy Couture, Chuck Liddell and Ken Shamrock. To save the committee some time, we’ve culled McGregor’s Twitter account and found the fighter’s best one-liners.
Grounds for welcoming him into the Hall of Fame? Maybe.
Entertaining fodder for fans? Absolutely.
