World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) superstar Brock Lesnar has hit out at mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Conor McGregor over his controversial comments about WWE and the quality of the talent present in the stable.

The 28-year-old MMA fighter has been taking potshots at the WWE and it's fighters for nearly a month now, first calling them "messed up pussies", then referring them as "dweebs" while also going on a tirade against superstar wrestler John Cena, calling him "a big fat, 40-year-old failed Mr Olympia motherf****r."

This has not gone down too well with Lesnar who has had very strong things to say to the UFC featherweight champion.

"Man, I take s***s bigger than that kid. Come on, I know you guys all play f*****g video games and live in this false sense of reality, but I'm 290 pounds. This guy is 145 pounds if he's lucky, if he gets up and eats his Wheaties", Lesnar said as quoted by MMAFighting.

"If Conor McGregor wants to say some s**t about me and get his name out there, more than he already has , by dropping my name, I've got f*****g about 10 words for him, Come here face-to-face Conor alright, and say it to my face.

"Otherwise, leave me and the f*****g WWE out of it because I came to your arena and kicked ass. Now if you want, and you're so f*****g tough, come to our arena and try to kick some ass", the WWE superstar added.

This is not the first time that the American wrestler has hit out at McGregor, with Lesnar criticising the Irishman's boast of being the "biggest draw" in the UFC.

McGregor on his part though has lived up to all the hype and talk, beating Nate Diaz in their rematch at UFC 202 via a majority decision. The 28-year-old immediately called for a trilogy fight against Diaz, but would have to most likely give up his featherweight belt for the bout to happen.
