The former two-division UFC champion, Conor McGregor, and one of the biggest names in the promotion, former two times title contender, Chael Sonnen recently got engaged in a Twitter feud with each other. McGregor and Sonnen are two of the biggest trash talkers in the promotion and this war got really interesting for fight fans around the world.

Conor McGregor is really active on Twitter these days and this social media spat between him and Chael Sonnen attracted a lot of eyeballs. Now, Sonnen wants to be the one to end this war because he feels Conor has turned out to be a rich little weirdo.

In his latest Youtube video, Chael Sonnen shed light on his Twitter spat with Conor McGregor. Sonnen says, “I’m done fighting, but so is Conor. I don’t have a license, and I’m not gonna go do another fight. Conor doesn’t have a license, and he’s not gonna do one, either,”

“So how weird are we? Does the world wanna hear… remember when Joe Frazier went after Muhammad Ali? And it was in 1996 when the Olympic games were on American soil in Atlanta? And Muhammad Ali lit the torch, and Frazier said, ‘I wish I could’ve pushed him right in the fire’? Remember when he did that? It was weird, it was highly uncomfortable.”

Sonnen added, “You have two guys who aren’t going to compete, and not only are they not gonna compete with each other, they don’t compete with anybody. So what are we talking about? You’re banging your chest to be a brave guy when you took yourself out of the brave guy business. I did it willfully, he did it when his leg got snapped, which is very sad, in fairness.”

“At what point are we Ali and Frazier? It’s not for me to say that he’s not gonna pursue a license. I do believe he is likely to fight again. He can’t fight right now. He can’t get a license. I can’t either.” {H/t BloodyElbow}

Chael Sonnen is hailed as the original bad guy of UFC and he was the first fighter who used trash talk to promote fights and he claims Conor McGregor followed his footsteps to become what he is today.

Sonnen continued, “I got asked about McGregor, who I have carried for years. In all fairness, I don’t know that Conor has a more public defender than me. And there’s been some rough times. You will look like a fool defending some of Conor’s actions.”

“I feel I know Conor. I feel I understand Conor. I feel I had a hand in creating Conor. Whether I did or not, but this is how I feel. So I’ve always looked after little brother. Much as I said he’s becoming a rich little weirdo, that’s still little brother, and I’mma still look after him. I just am.” {H/t BloodyElbow}
