Justin Gaethje thinks Conor McGregor will do anything to fight him.

Gaethje is coming off a huge win over Tony Ferguson at UFC 249, and the chatter has already started about McGregor. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Apparently, the UFC star believes the Irish-born legend will do whatever it takes. He recently told TMZ that McGregor is “on his knees begging for a fight.”

Yeah, I’m not sure Gaethje wants to be out there dropping lines like this. Yes, McGregor has tweeted about lighting him up, but the face of the UFC doesn’t need to beg for anything.

The dude moves the needle unlike anyone else. I’m more than confident he can do whatever he wants and it’s not an issue.

In life, you have to be careful what you wish for. Sometimes, you might get it. If Gaethje wants to step into the octagon against McGregor, he shouldn’t be shocked if it ends with him getting lit up.

McGregor destroyed Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone the last time he fought, and he appears to be as good as ever.

We’ll see what happens, but Gaethje might want to chill out before he gets annihilated.
