CONOR MCGREGOR WON’T pass up an opportunity to get under the skin of his Ultimate Fighter rival Urijah Faber.

Last night’s episode of the UFC reality show saw McGregor needle Faber about his reluctance to fight his one-time protégé, TJ Dillashaw.

Dillashaw, the current UFC bantamweight champion, has been caught in the crossfire of an acrimonious row between Faber and coach Duane Ludwig.

McGregor accused Dillashaw of turning his back on Faber, and Faber of turning a blind eye to the betrayal.

“I see these comments going back and forth and I realise that Urijah’s an absolute pussy,” McGregor said.

“He took some kid out of school, showed him the ropes, showed him the path, gave him the opportunity; brings in a stand-up coach (Ludwig) to coach the gym, he takes over the coaching and then takes TJ with him, and then TJ goes with him.

I think it’s a bitch move on TJ’s part and I think it’s a bitch move on Urijah’s part not recognising it.

“Stop being a pussy. Man up. That’s the fight to make.”

Faber didn’t take the bait.

“It seems like Conor keeps trying to get me and TJ to fight each other which for me is not something that’s attractive, even though he’s got the belt in the 135lbs division,” he said.

“It’s one of the reasons why I came up to 145 and said I’d rather fight Conor.”
