WWE champ Drew McIntyre brutally trolls Conor McGregor as he reignites feud with Irishman ahead of UFC 257


CONOR McGREGOR was brutally trolled by WWE champion Drew McIntyre ahead of his UFC 257 showdown against Dustin Poirier.

The Scottish wrestler tweeted a message mocking the Irishman just hours before his comeback fight.

McIntyre posted a picture of McGregor tapping out against rival Khabib Nurmagomedov but superimposed a meme of Bernie Sanders in a facemask over the Russian.

Alongside the pic, he wrote: "Good luck tonight, McTapper..."

McIntyre, 35, blasted the UFC star in July for calling out WWE chief Vince McMahon when he 'couldn't drop a guy in a pub'.

His tweet appeared to be referencing McGregor's £860 fine after he pleaded guilty to punching an elderly man in a Dublin pub in 2019.

The former two-time UFC king assaulted the man in the March Arch pub where he was promoting his Proper Twelve brand of whiskey.

McGregor, 32, previously launched an attack on WWE by calling wrestlers 'dweebs' and calling legend John Cena a 'big, fat 40-year-old failed Mr Olympia motherf***er'.

McIntyre's tweet came just hours before McGregor's highly-anticipated UFC return fight against Poirier.

He is the bookies' favourite to win the bout and is being backed by fellow MMA stars.

But arch-enemy Khabib reckons Poirier can pull off an upset if the fight goes beyond two rounds.

Dana White tries to tempt Khabib out of retirement by saying Conor McGregor vs Poirier is on pace to break PPV record
