Conor McGregor and Paul Felder
UFC Lightweight Champion Paul Felder was congratulated by the MMA community on Monday after announcing his participation in a five-day competition with former Lightweight Champion Rafael dos Agnos at the UFC Main Event in Las Vegas on Saturday 14.
Combative superstar Conor McGregor took a different approach, but on Monday night he eclipsed the Irish dragon on Twitter.
It’s a well-known story in which Felder talked about Muell, leaving his legacy. McGregor, a proud Irishman, argues that Felder should not be nicknamed the Irish Dragon because the Felders are German-English.
McGregor expressed his opinion days before Felder took over Dan Hooker at the main event of UFC Fight Night 168 in February. McGregor and Felder both answered a question from a fan about an Irish dragon. In a meeting with Hooker, a fan commented on Felder’s outfit: If [Paul Felder] fought [Conor McGregor], would he still dress like that and call himself the Irish Dragon?

The Irish dragon answered: Wtf, isn’t it?
The notorious man gave Felder a sarcastic written answer: The Felders are German-English. Shut up, red German tweet.
TwitterConor McGregor responds to Paul Felder’s tweet.
On Monday McGregor hit Felder again by tweeting Gunther, Schneider and Felder. #TheLads. We know there was a German smiley at the end of the tweet, which means the name Felder is of German origin. McGregor tweeted shortly after.

Felder takes over messagefrom the former Lightweight Champion for 5 days.
The Irish dragon is currently in 7th place in the lightweight category and will compete on Saturday for the first time since he lost to Hooker in February due to the split decision. In the last seven games he has been 5:2 and has a professional MMA record of 17:5 with 10 KO or TKO victories and one service win.
He will meet the GDR for a five-round race in the UFC Vegas 14 main event. Dos Anjos was originally supposed to fight the Islam Makhachev, but on Sunday the Russian fell out of the match because of a staphylococcal infection.
Saturday is the return of Dos Anjos to the lightweight category after more than three years of lightweight competition. The GDR won the UFC Lightweight Championship title in 2015, losing match after match after defense and falling to 170 pounds in 2017.
Dos Agnos has a professional record of 29-13 with five KO or TKO victories and 10 in the show.

Felder thinks we should give up MMA after losing the prostitute
After the splitting decision was passed on to Hooker, the Irish Dragon spoke with UFC commentator Dan Hardy in the Octagon. Emotional fields, which also works as an advertising commentator, said: Maybe it’s for me.
The Irish dragon said he had a four-year-old daughter at home and missed her when he was away. However, Felder ended the interview by saying that he would go home and think about his fighting career before making a decision.

Apparently, Felder has decided to continue the match. In an interview with ESPN on Monday, the Irish Dragon explained why it had joined the fight against the GDR five days earlier.
Dude, you’re still 36, Felder said about himself. You’re young, you’re in uniform, walk away, let’s pay. Let’s have fun, you’re fighting a legend. What have I got to lose?
