"Sounds like he's off his head. So, good on you! Enjoy, enjoy your night but hey, come back down to featherweight! I'd love it. He reckons he's the man of the featherweight division and again I got the strategy, in obviously tough and I'm a whole different beast to what he's used to in this division so if he wants to come back down, welcome! I'd love it!"
Alexander Volkanovski put on a strong performance at the pay-per-view main event. He overwhelmed Brian Ortega with his superior striking skills, distance control and cardio.
Even after pushing the pace for five hard-fought rounds, the Australian champion did not seem to run out of gas. After escaping a couple of submission attempts from Ortega in the third round, the 32-year-old secured a unanimous decision victory.
Conor McGregor posted a tweet calling out Alexander Volkanovski after the Australian's fight with T-City. 'The Notorious,' in a tweet which has now been deleted, said:
"I’d kick this volovski [Volkanovski's] head off like it was a rugby ball I was kicking. 5’4! And full of muscle! Hahahahaha little fart he is. Not even a little fart. A shart haahahahaj jack***."
Conor McGregor was featherweight champion before moving up to lightweight in 2015
Even after Alexander Volkanovski's reply to his call-out, Conor McGregor is unlikely to move back down to the featherweight division.
The Irishman started his UFC career in the 145-lbs division. He proved himself to be the best in the weight class when he won the undisputed strap against Jose Aldo at UFC 194.
His impeccable resume while competing in the featherweight division includes wins over Chad Mendes, Jose Aldo, Dennis Siver, Dustin Poirier and Max Holloway.
