Conor McGregor tears John Cena to shreds, Cena subtly jabs back
John Cena is the kind of guy that most people would not want to mess with.
Conor McGregor, as we're all very well aware, does not fall under the category of 'most people'. The MMA has inflamed the passions of various wrestlers recently after he claimed he'd 'slap the head off' the entire WWE roster.
He's now taken it further and made it personal with one of the WWE's most recognisable faces, one John Cena.
During a media day in Las Vegas ahead of next week's fight with Nate Diaz, McGregor called out Cena, saying:
"What's the main guy? John Cena? He's 40 years of age walking around in a luminous orange t-shirt and headband talking about no one can see him.
You can see him right there — he's a big fat 40 year old failed Mr. Olympian. Do you know what I mean? They're dweebs those guys."
Cena appeared to respond through his Twitter account, simply sending a subtle message that "Achievement often breeds contempt. The more you achieve the more contempt you will see."
Achievement often breeds contempt. The more you achieve the more contempt you will see. Stay focused on you and moving forward. #NeverGiveUp
