On March 5,McGregor posted a picture with him featuring in a Burger King Commercial.First he posted,”There are two kings in this picture and only one in the fight game. Forget the rest. Big news on the way”.(via Twitter):

After 3 hours,McGregor confirmed that he will be featuring in the Burger King advertisement.He posted,”The Undisputed Champ Champ and the Undisputed Spicy Champ.”(via Twitter):

However, it didn’t took much long for featherweight king Max ‘Blessed’ Holloway to mock McGregor as he replied,”You went from being king of Ireland to king on ‘chicken’?Looking forward to two strips meal coming April 7.PS Shout out to the real fighting Irish.The one’s who value what’s in heart before what’s on waist.Hawaii respects you and welcomes you with open heart.”(via Twitter):

Holloway pun intendedly said ‘two strips meal’ referring to the fact that McGregor would be ‘stripped’ from the UFC Lightweight Championship on April 7 at UFC 223 where Khabib Nurmagomedov meets Interim Champion Tony Ferguson as confirmed by UFC President Dana White.

McGregor and Holloway also had a blistering twitter attack on each other after UFC 222 on March 3,2018.UFC 222 featured an exciting co-main event between former Lightweight Champion Frankie ‘The Answer’ Edgar and undefeated prospect Brian ‘T-City’ Ortega.UFC 222 was originally scheduled to be Holloway’s second title defense against Frankie Edgar.However Holloway pulled out from the card due to an injury and was replaced by Ortega.Edgar could have just waited for Holloway to recover but instead decided to fight Ortega. His decision backfired and Ortega became the first fighter ever to finish Edgar in his 13 year career.
