McGregor is planning his return to the Octagon later this year after nearly a full year away from the UFC. He suffered a nasty leg injury at UFC 264 last year but seems to be on the comeback trail.
McGregor has had a recent habit of attacking some of his UFC colleagues and rivals, and Dariush seems to be his latest target of choice.
In a recent tweet, McGregor blasted Dariush in a seemingly unprovoked post.
“Beneil Dardush is the biggest nobody in the company,” McGregor said in a since-deleted tweet.
McGregor could be potentially responding to Dariush’s criticism of Charles Oliveira for calling out McGregor over a fight against another top contender. Oliveira has hinted at a possible matchup with McGregor for months as the Irish superstar nears a return.
McGregor and Dariush are two big names in the lightweight title picture, but McGregor doesn’t think Dariush is worthy of consideration for a potential shot at the belt.
