“Relax u lil’ leprachaun” Kelvin Gastelum shots back at Conor McGregor following his staph infection mockery

Kelvin Gastelum was having a really hard time with the biggest MMA promotion in the world. After May 2018, this American fighter only managed to win one bout against Ian Heinisch while losing to big names like Israel Adesanya and Daren Till, and the most recent one was against Jared Cannonier.

However, this 31-year-old was supposed to face off against Nassourdine Imavov at the main event of UFC Fight Night 217, the first major event of the UFC this year, but he was forced out of the fight because of his staph infection.

Sean Strickland stepped up at the last moment, and Imavov and Strickland will feature in the main event of UFC Vegas 67. Many UFC fighters, including Conor McGregor, were disappointed by this decision.

After that incident, Conor took a dig at Gastelum as he tried to make the fight happen for the second with his bacterial infection; the former Irish champ labeled him a “Scruff” and advised him to see a doctor.

“Absolute scruff this thing is. That’s full of staph infection all over his f**king face. A full f**king hole omg and it’s his second time to attempt to enter competition like this. Wtf! Clean your mat, wash yourself, f**king go to the doctor. Scruff.”

After that comment Gastelum replied back from his Twitter account and wrote,

“Relax u lil leprechaun.

The coke and steroids are kicking in.”

Several pictures of Conor’s muscular body went viral, and the 25-16-8-1 professional MMA record holder believes that steroids are the main reason for Mystic Mac’s bulk.

Conor has been out of the ring for more than two years and is currently busy with his upcoming Jake Gyllenhaal-starrer Hollywood action film, Road House, for which he is very active on social media teasing the movie’s pictures, and as per sources, Notorious will return to the octagon in the first quarter of 2023.
