Conor McGregor has taken a battering from fellow UFC stars after his defeat by Nate Diaz in Las Vegas.

McGregor is in a social media war with Jose Aldo and Rafael dos Anjos after Diaz finished him off in UFC 196 with a rear naked choke hold.

Aldo, who was smashed by McGregor in UFC 194, wants a re-match and tweeted: "Your fairy tale is over. You got nowhere to run now. Time to a rematch, p!@#$." Lightweight champion dos Anjos also made a disparaging remark about McGregor's ability.

But Irishman McGregor, who stepped up two weight divisions to fight welterweight Diaz, countered with a rambling response.


"I stormed in and put it all on the line. I took a shot and missed. I will never apologise for taking a shot," he said on Instagram.

"I'll take this loss like a man. If another champion goes up 2 weights let me know.

"If your (sic) tired of me talking money, take a nap. I'll still be here when you wake up with the highest PPV (pay per view) and the gate.

"...f!@# the hate that came out of the woodwork. I love it all. Its still steak for breakfast. Aldo you are a pussy. Dos anjos you are a pussy."
