Conor McGregor Has Challenged 'Hollywood Actress Mark Wahlberg' To A Fight

Many people were upset when Conor McGregor announced his retirement because they would never see him go toe to toe with someone in the octagon, cage or ring.

But it seems like that retirement could be short lived after The Notorious goaded Mark Wahlberg to a fight.

The Ted actor is a strange choice for McGregor to single out, but it seems the Irishman has a particular bone to pick with him and wants to see him on the floor.

McGregor posted a series of tweets, which said: "I've decided to challenge Hollywood actress Mark Wahlberg next. A fight for all the shares!

"I'll smack him and his 4 brothers around.

"It wouldn't be the first crew of brothers I've smacked around. Check the history books. The UFC history books."

It's probably all classic McGregor smack talk as we highly, highly doubt that this fight will ever see the light of day. It's unclear why McGregor focused on him but it might be because TMZ asked Wahlberg what he thought of the Irishman's request to become part owner of the UFC.

The Shooter star said: "Cut the cheque baby. He's got to cut the cheque. Everybody cuts a cheque if you want a piece."

Wahlberg wasn't the only target of his Twitter abuse as he also levelled some heavy words against his most recent opponent Khabib Nurmagomedov.

He wrote: "Don't be scared of the rematch you little scurrying rat. You will do what you are told like you always do.

"You got your money took and your brother's eye socket shook when you fought me, you little rat.

"Viva Las Vegas, baby, the gaf always wins. Big stomper party in the Wynn coming soon!"

McGregor also called Khabib's wife a pillow alongside a picture of her with a large, white veil covering her face. Big banter being laid down on social media here.
