While many of the UFC stars in attendance at yesterday’s The Time Is Now press conference treated the event as one big love fest, Irish featherweight star Conor McGregor was in no mood to play nice. Shortly after his public face-off with upcoming opponent Dennis Siver, he sent the unfortunate tweet you see above, which he deleted afterwards.
Though Siver is of German descent, he was actually born and raised in Russia, giving him a unique mix of Axis and Allied heritage. (I’m sure he’s very conflicted about his place in history.) Still, referring to a German man as a “Nazi” just because he’s German…not cool, Conor. They’re still really sensitive about that sort of thing over there.
