Michael Bisping will most likely see Conor McGregor join him in the UFC Hall of Fame someday, which apparently doesn’t mean they’re above arguing about their respective legacies.

The former UFC champions went at it on social media on Tuesday, with Bisping initially drawing the ire of McGregor when he criticized McGregor’s recent comments about Bisping’s UFC broadcast partner Daniel Cormier on his Believe You Me podcast. In response, McGregor tweeted that he collected commissions from Bisping’s fights in the past (the two are both managed by Paradigm Sports), a claim that Bisping brushed off:

McGregor then replied, “The only legacy I give a f*ck about is the Legacy 5000 my mother flies around on.”

“Money doesn’t make you a man little guy,” Bisping replied. “Besides, even if you stood on your wallet I’d still be a bigger man than you.”

McGregor proceeded to write out a series of indecipherable accusations, to which Bisping responded simply, “I’m not your bro.”

Several of McGregor’s tweets have since been deleted, but can be seen in the graphic above.

Bisping retired from competition in 2018, while McGregor is currently recovering from a leg injury that he suffered against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 and is not expected to fight again until next year.
