McGregor, who is no stranger to making controversial posts on social media, took a jibe at the former UFC fighter's acting career. The Irishman himself is currently filming a remake of the 1989 classic 'Road House'. Bisping responded to 'Notorious', asking him to keep his bodyguards close the next time they meet, which prompted the former two-division UFC champion to reply via a now-deleted tweet:
"Bisping, you'll do f*** all, you little sprinter. I'll cave your head in. S*** fighter, s*** actor. Sirius XM head."
Fans have reacted on Reddit to the spat between the pair, with one fan labeling the 34-year-old as a fighter with extreme insecurities:
"Most insecure human being on the planet"
Another fan believes that even in retirement, Michael Bisping looks to be in better shape than the former lightweight champion:
"Bisping looks sharper and more powerful in his retired training footage than Conor does and Conor is supposedly "active""
Reddit user @Diceman888 believes Conor McGregor is suffering a fall from grace, which may be the result of an addiction to drugs and alcohol:
"He's literally a prime example of someone who lost his shine and became an alcoholic/drug addict"

Michael Bisping questions why Conor McGregor criticizes others' achievements
UFC Hall of Famer Michael Bisping has questioned why Conor McGregor feels the need to berate others and their achievements, following their recent spat on social media.
During a recent episode of the Believe You Me podcast, Bisping responded to McGregor, who initially targeted the former middleweight champion's acting career seemingly unprovoked.
'The Count' revealed that he didn't even follow the Irishman on social media and questioned what made McGregor feel the need to attack him, considering everything he's got going on in his own life:
"He's got a lot going on in his life. He's a very famous, very wealthy man. I don't even follow Conor on social media. I don't interact with him or anything like that and he's just gonna come out of the blue and do stuff like that. I don't get it. I don't get – not just Conor – [but] people that are in a very advantageous [position] in life, and just feel the need to try and berate others' achievements. Have you not have enough going on in your life?"
