'F**k the hate that came out of the woodwork' - McGregor comes out swinging

The morning after the night before, the UFC star has delivered a defiant message.

THE MORNING AFTER the night before, Conor McGregor has taken to social media to send a fiery message to his rivals.

The 27-year-old Dubliner seemed to be in a reflective mood afterwards, but he has come out swinging in the direction of former UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo and reigning lightweight title-holder Rafael dos Anjos.

Last night, McGregor posted the following defiant message:

“I stormed in and put it all on the line. I took a shot and missed. I will never apologize for taking a shot. Shit happens. I’ll take this loss like a man. I will not shy away from it.

I will not change who I am. If another champion goes up 2 weights let me know.

“If your [sic] tired of me talking money, take a nap. I’ll still be here when you wake up with the highest PPV and the gate. Still talking multi 7′s.

“Thank you to the true support and fuck the hate that came out of the woodwork. I love it all. It’s still steak for breakfast. I’ve been here many times in my life in some form or another. I’ll eat it all and come back stronger.

Aldo you are a pussy. Dos anjos you are a pussy. When the history books are written, I showed up. You showed up on Twitter.

“To the fans! Never ever shy away from challenges. Never run from adversity. Face yourself head on.

“Nate I will see you again.”
