Conor McGregor’s rant on “little sausage” Alexander Volkanovski lands right on the money as UFC champ accepts callout

Conor McGregor has yet to make his UFC return. The former two-division UFC champion was reported to make his comeback in December, but this seems unlikely due to Conor failing to re-enter the testing pool. However, McGregor remains highly active on social media and frequently calls out or engages in trash talk with other fighters.

This time, McGregor directed his attention to the undisputed featherweight champion, Alexander Volkanovski, on social media during UFC 293. It certainly didn’t go as planned, as the featherweight champion accepted McGregor’s callout.

While McGregor is currently scheduled to face Michael Chandler after their coaching roles on The Ultimate Fighter, it appears he has a new opponent in mind. Mystic Mac has expressed interest in challenging the reigning featherweight champion. In classic McGregor style, the 35-year-old responded with a series of tweets, taunting Volkanovski and questioning the UFC’s Pound-for-Pound rankings.

During UFC 293, McGregor released a tweet which shocked the UFC world. “Ask my bollox that little sausage Volkanovski is no way p4p 1. Silly. That’s quick work for me. 100% accuracy work. Readable. Hittable. Hurtable. I like he has this title tho we should fight at some stage so the FW goats will have all faced off and let there be no debate.” Conor McGregor said
Talks of a potential bout between McGregor and Volk date back to May 2023 when ESPN MMA posted a tweet suggesting that a fight between Conor and Volkanovski at featherweight could determine the undisputed champion of the division. Volkanovski responded to the tweet, agreeing to fight Conor but in the lightweight division.

Usually, McGregor’s online exchanges with other fighters do not lead to anything concrete, but this is not the case here. After McGregor questioned Alexander’s pound-for-pound ranking, the featherweight champion responded immediately. 

The featherweight champion challenged McGregor to a bout at UFC 300. While the prospect of a fight between the two fighters is sure to pique the interest of fans, it is unlikely to happen at this time.

Similar situations have occurred in the past with Nate Diaz, Justin Gaethje, and KSI, where the Irishman challenged all of these fighters, but none of these matchups became official. McGregor hasn’t fought in two years since his loss to Dustin Poirier.
