Conor McGregor got into a severe accident that nearly ended his life as he got hit by a speeding car while he was riding his bicycle. Being the controversial celebrity he is, other fans and fighters who don’t really appreciate his actions came to mock him.
Among these celebrities is the former Olympic Gold medalist Henry ‘Triple C’ Cejudo.
After his accident, Conor was in a state of shock as he wrote, “Got a bang of a car just now from behind. A sun trap, the driver couldn’t see me. Full speed straight thru me. Thank you, God, it wasn’t my time. Thank you wrestling and judo also. Having an awareness on the landing saved my life.”
Henry responded to a Twitter troll video saying, “Glad you are ok. Heard you were on a bike because you ran out of gas.”

The former Bantamweight is probably trying to poke fun at the fact that Conor has been showing poor cardio in his recent fights. The two don’t really like each other and have engaged in back and forth before.
Knowing ‘Mystic Mac’ it is expected that some form of response will come from the Irish although as of writing this article there hasn’t been anything noteworthy.
When will Henry Cejudo and Conor McGregor return?
Henry was getting ready to make a comeback at Bantamweight to fight for the title but after Aljamain Sterling pulled out, his return is in a state of limbo.
Although Sean O’Malley has offered to step in for a potential interim title match UFC has not confirmed anything. 135lbs is a stacked weight class so the veteran will probably find an opponent at some point.
Conor on the other hand is in a much more confusing state as he has to go through USADA first. He also recently revealed an offer he received for appearing in TUF potentially against Tony ‘El Cucuy’ Ferguson.
‘Iron’ Michael Chandler has been eyeing the ‘Notorious’ for a light/welterweight bout too but so far only speculations have been passed around.
What do you think is next for the former Two-division champs?
