Conor McGregor ramps up feud with Carl Froch and George Groves and says he would 'slaughter them at the same time' | The Sun
CONOR McGREGOR ramped up his feud by Carl Froch after saying he would "slaughter" him and George Groves in the cage.
The pair have rowed in the past but Froch took it one step further when he claimed he had the beating of the ex-UFC champion in the cage.
He said on his YouTube channel: “I'd fight Conor McGregor in the cage.
"I could be getting myself in trouble here or into a position I can't wiggle out of, but I think I'd take him on in the cage. He's too small.”
McGregor hit back with a laughing face and tweeted promoter Eddie Hearn: "Get this signed up lad."
The Irishman then menacingly followed it up days later by adding: "I’ll slaughter Froch and Grove at the same time in the cage."

"Little wally of a thing I’ll slap you around you little toffee nose toss pot.”
Froch – who retired from boxing in 2014 after knocking out Groves – insisted it would be a mismatch if the two were to fight in the ring.
He told Boxing UK: “He’s not a boxer, he doesn’t want to fight me, he’d get absolutely f***** up, but he might do the same to me in the cage and that is why we are both champion in our own right.
“He knows, if he wants a roll around, he knows where to come, but he ain’t going to want this smoke.”
