Conor McGregor trolled the entire UFC roster last night and some big names took the bait
Celebrating a three-year work anniversary by flaunting your earnings for all to see.
Conor McGregor made his UFC debut, against Marcus Brimage, three years and a day ago. On Wednesday night, 'The Notorious' marked the date with a reminder to all that he is still the king-maker.
Many suspected the Dubliner would recede into his shell after tapping out to Nate Diaz at UFc 196.
There's just one problem: McGregor doesn't do shells.
3 years ago today, I began my crusade to take all you bums from 5 figure paydays to multi seven figure paydays.
And not even a thank you.

McGregor is being typically verbose but he has a point.
UFC stars such as Diaz, Demetrious Johnson, Donald Cerrone and many, many more have all spoken about wanting McGregor-type pay-days for their fights. By headlining major events, McGregor has helped breach attendance and pay-per-view records for the promotion.
With a cock-sure statement like McGregor's, there were always going to be some UFC fighters out there that reacted.
Rory MacDonald took the tweet in good humour.
@TheNotoriousMMA coming out with a dvd box set "change your bum life in 3 years" ... lord knows i would buy it! 😂

Light heavyweight Ilir Latifi also made his debut at that UFC event, in Iceland, and shared McGregor some love.

Former UFC fighter Nathan Quarry took a serious tone but no McGregor retweet has been forthcoming.
@TheNotoriousMMA then you support @mmafa, the UFC lawsuit and changing the Ali Act to cover MMA. Feel free to retweet this to show support.
