Minutes before going on stage for his Q&A, Conor McGregor lobbed a social-media grenade at the UFC — and everyone else.

“The Notorious” wrote in an Instagram post Saturday that his question-and-answer session Saturday in England will have a bigger attendance than UFC on FOX 23, also Saturday in England.

“Heading to do a Q and A in front of 5000 fans!” McGregor wrote. “You read that right. That's more than UFC attendance tonight.”

The Q&A, hosted by MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani, can be watched on pay-per-view here.

McGregor finished the post with a double middle finger to the UFC, boxing and, well, even the fans.

“Fuck the UFC,” he wrote. “Fuck Floyd. Fuck boxing. Fuck the WWE. Fuck Hollywood. And fuck you too pay me.”
